BEFORE ANYONE SAYS ANYTHING: THIS IS A MOCK THREAD
MEANING I WAS MAKING FUN OF THE OTHER THREAD ABOUT HOW EVERYONE IS MAKING A BIG DEAL ABOUT MPH SPEED.
I DON'T ACTUALLY CARE IF MY SERVE IS 100.


What this thread was really about: People have been asking for a new video. But all I have are serves, sorry.
I changed back to Pinpoint stance after having platform for about 2 weeks,
it became uncomfortable.

I just recently bought a K Six One 90, and LOOK WHAT I DID TO IT:

Lol you dented the hell out of that frame!!! I'm gonna say your serves were around 150 mph... jk probably between 95-105 mph i can't really tell

I'm sure they're 200mph in your heart for all the effort you put in.

Do you think if I sent this in to Wilson, (which I won't, but i'm wondering) they would call this dent, "racket abuse"?

One of my frames (Dunlop 200g) cracked from completely mishitting a forehand. Accidental of course but just saying worse could happen :).

Nice serves I'll give you 99.9 due to there being no speed gun.

Gee Willikers Batman!
02-09-2009, 03:37 PM
So anyways, does anyone have any input on my serve? Anything glaringly wrong? I think I am at that point where I figured out all my strokes, so now is the time to perfect them and make them more consistent.

And by "figuring out" I mean I don't have to go through huge changes anymore like I used to do every other day. Now is the time for minuscule tweaks and such. At least I feel I am at that point, though I most probably am not.

Very good motion and swing.
Kinda Goran clone serve, one of the best for emulate.

GWB,

It looks like you're now in-between in your stance. Your right leg is doing most of the work. If you prefer the pinpoint, perhaps you should bring your back foot up sooner to allow proper weight distribution and you can load and lift with both legs. Also, why does your follow through almost hit you in the face?

Djokovicfan4life
02-09-2009, 06:07 PM
Definitely around the 100 MPH range.

Work on:

Staying down with the legs a little bit longer. You rise a little prematurely and you lose a little potential power.

Great job though, with your discipline and work ethic you'll be a 5.0 in no time. You've come a long way from beating up on 3.0 level players, hahahaha!

Matt

P.S. Radar guns aren't THAT expensive, you know. Can't hurt to know what it is once and for all!

Well it depends on what camera you have. If it's a digital camera, you just plug the USB cord into the camera, and the computer.

If it's a camcorder, I think you need a firewire or something.

Well I can just tell by the name it's a camcorder. Has a flip out screen and a side strap for your hand yes? Those cameras record with a DV tape inside the camera, so you need to have a firewire port on your computer.

Take a look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FireWire

Ballinbob
02-09-2009, 07:29 PM
yeah GWB has it right. You need a firewire cable. Another way you could do it though is hook the camera up to your TV and record the footage you want on a DVD. Then burn the DVD onto your comp and go from there. More steps, but it beats buying a firewire cable if you dont have one already

I wouldn't waste your $$$ on a radar gun. Do you honestly care that much about your serve speed?

If you noticed, I haven't responded to any comment regarding my serve SPEED. It really is not that important to me. I think a decent digital camera would be your best use of spending your money. You don't seem like the type of guy who needs an ego boost from people. I really wouldn't advise buying one unless you come into a bit of money, but then again, do what you want, that's just my take on it.

It's important from a professional coaching standpoint though. Understand that speed isn't everything, believe me.

Just want a reliable method of measuring my student's progress. Pretty sure my 14 year old bro is serving over 100 as well. Good technique can go a long way. :)

Agreed, he just looks for attention and excuses about his game. He was retired a week ago and I brought it up so he changed it to semi-retired. Now he practices all the time and bought a brand new k90 when he's "not allowed to play tennis and is poor." Just like this thread, he says it's to "mock" the other 100 mph thread when it's well aware he himself is actually concerned about his speed tsk tsk. :( Don't forget, he was aiming for #2 singles then got bagled challenging up and now plays mix doubles. :oops:

Read this thread, he obviously hasn't changed. Other people are even questioning his "semi-retired" quote. Funny you say I haven't even thought that maybe he "Matured" again, read this thread he is the same as always. The whole "is my serve 100mpg but it's a mock thread" then follows it up with "help my serve" please. :oops: Like I said earlier, it all adds up, he "quit tennis" in his 0-8 loss thread and blamed it on his parents but he never stopped playing, then he makes a joke saying "my coach doesn't think I am good enough so she put me in mixed doubles". Could it be he quit because at the time he didn't want to play mixed doubles after his drastic loss? Just think about it :)

OK, so he made a joke about Petek that was MAYBE a little much, and that's enough for you to launch into a spiel about his personality?

"This message is hidden because bugmenot is on your ignore list."

I bet a Benjamin that this comment is something about me losing 0-8 on Friday because I am playing singles and that is how bad I lost last time. (The reason I can't see his comment is because he is on my blocked users list by the way)

My guess is based on his post directly after my latest post.

By the way, the reason why I am playing Line 1 Singles is because Nick is out, which is our number one, the number 2 and number 3 are playing doubles together, so I'm apparently next choice? I really hope I don't lose early, which I probably will, these guys are good, but I'll post my results Friday night.

Good to see you playing again GWB. Looks like the little high schooler groupies are following you around again, hinging on every comment you make. You think you are soooooo kewl GWB. (LOL - just kidding).

Serve looked very nice. I say 80+ easy - I can't tell after 85 what anything is, except 'fast'.

I had a guy come on court recently that served in the 120+ range in college - and he put one in up the T that landed in. You almost don't even see it. You hear the ball off his racket, the ball hitting the court, and the ball hitting the fence before the mind even picks up what the heck happened.

GWB... just FYI... you ain't serving near 100MPH. Keep practicing. Have a nice day.

I already had my serve radared, thanks.

It confounds me how this generation DOESN'T work at least a couple hours a day after school. I worked 4 from age 11.
Got my driver's license on my 15th birthday (hardship), and bought my YamahaYDS-3C one day later. Paid cash, had never ridden a bicycle or motorcycle, or been on one, the shop was at least 40 miles away over the SanFranciscoBayBridge, and I only crashed 3 times on the way home:):)

I'm curius, what kind of work were you doing at age 4? isnt it dangerous to be working that young?

No you didn't... I assure you... from playing a lot of tennis with guys who can actually serve +100mph... you do not.

He meant he worked 4 hours, starting from age 11, not FROM ages 4-11

Yes I did get my serve radared.. my friend has the radar that Drakulie has.

How can you tell me I didn't?

SlicernDicer is really Charles Xavier, that's how. (Can anyone tell which movie I saw two times in the last two days? :))

You do not serve 100mph... end of story. The radar gun you "allegedly" used is by all means not accurate and/or was not used appropriately. I say this because, you do not serve 100mph. I know this for fact, or I should say... any serve video you posted is not 100mph.

doesnt look like much is wrong technically. but even though it is extremely hard to tell on video, it doesnt look to be 100mph. my record serve is 113 and i serve big. i was very sure i was smackin at least a buck 20, and caught a lot of flack for it. so i bought a radar gun and was sick to see that my fastest serves were in the 98 to 100 flat range. i am still trying to get to 120 so i can save a little face. i increased my speed by changing my grip, abreviating my swing and accelerating like an idiot in the last 25% of my motion. i still think i will make 120, but i gotta say, 100 is so much faster than it seems. all the same, your motion looks right on. to get to 100+ maybe try using a semi to full western grip on your flat serve and remove all the spin. keep swingin, looks great!

Where did I say anything about MPH?


Your post directly before this said, that I do not serve 100 MPH+ (in this video)
to which I posted the response above in agreement. I already had my serve radared and the max I hit was 98 when I got it about 1 month ago.

quite right. you did actually say you dont care about 100mph. lost the point in the other replies. its place over pace anyway. i've been aced at 120, i've been aced at 90

Why did it take you 3 post to directly show agreement. This is why your threads always have so much conflict, because you are always unclear with your responses....
