Heh, I watched Christophe,the "big brother" of Olivier Rochus, today. He is towers over his kid brother at 5'7" tall. :D It's amazing that you can be a top 100 player with a serve a 100 mph 1st serve and 75-80 mph second serve. I was watching the speed gun on all his serves and the fastest he clocked was 114 mph but most were in the 95-105 range on his first serve. Kevin Kim was in he 120s but it didn't help him too much.
Oh yes, he IS amazing. His reflexes are amazing, on both of them. They're I think pound for pound the best players in the game. Olivier I think has a bit more explosivness and slightly more "brilliance" if you will, but Christophe is still no slouch.
On his best days, both he and Olivier can hang with anyone.
They're reflexes really are lightning quick.
I remember Christophe giving Rafter everything he could handle and then some in the first set of the U.S. Open one year.
