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.
Good stuff.

I did some more research. Andy Roddick is the man.

His 2nd serve average at Wimbledon 2004: 110 mph. He was serving 112 and 113 in the SF and QF, respectively.

And Johansson hit a 130 mph second serve against Roddick in their 2004 USO match. Both of them had similar averages, but Johansson went for more. Although Roddick hit a 122 mph second serve also.
