Every era had a leading American tennis player which now includes Serena and Venus Williams. Although Serena is having a rough time with her fitness and injuries but she is still managing to be extremely competitive and challenging the opponents with her aggressive play.
There are very few female tennis players who have an aggressive playing style. If you see a three set game of women playing tennis, you will probably notice a rather steady game with shots being played for a longer while which means there’s less chance that any ace will take place. Similarly, the serve of mostly female players is not very aggressive, which leads to fewer aces during a match.
However, things start to change when it comes to the famous USA female tennis player Williams sisters who enthrall the opponents with their steaming fast serves and aces. USA tennis players Venus and Serena Williams are the leading ace scorers in the Australian Open by far. Venus Williams also holds the record of most aces in a match at Wimbledon.

As the overall game pace has slowed down due to player preference at playing from the baseline, the chances of ace have lowered. The game is relatively slower for women with lots of grunting presently.
The ace is the most exciting and beautiful serve played in tennis. Aces tend to remain unreturned because the opposing player does not touch the ball at all and therefore loses the point. Aces are seen on the first serve of a play as a tennis player can use full strength while serving, hence leading to an accurate ace. In the current tennis game, players now prefer playing from the baseline which means less of aces, volleys and drop shots. This has significantly decreased the aces as their are big winners. In addition to this, you get to see more of longer rallies with very few aces. However the history is full of ace records as tennis great names Sampras, Agassi and many more have won their games based on their aces.
Greatest tennis player Goran Ivanisevic is famous for 1,477 maximum aces in the entire tennis season of 1996.
