Federer was serving 102 mph in one match at Wimbledon last year. Mark Philippoussis hit at least 108 mph on average in every match he played (his top was 110 mph).
Then basically Isner or Raonic. Throw in Gulbis as well, I missed him in my first post but he really goes for big second serves.

Of recently retired players, perhaps Taylor Dent and Joachim Johansson. In this article Joachim talks about hitting second serves around the 200kmh (124 mph) mark.
