no their atleast 5.5-6.5 and if you dont believe me here is the entire match. Just look at how powerful their serves are.

Congrats to Brad for the win. Good effort by Alex too for reaching the semis.

I'd like to thank everyone who has posted vids of the matches, some in very good quality. I'd like to thank especially Maximagq for putting up entire matches during the cup. Great stuff!

What? Those are pretty powerful serves. Most people cant serve with that much pace. I would be surprised if you find more than a couple hundred people.

The guy that said they were 4.5s was being sarcastic. There's far over 150 people that serve harder then that with a much heavier ball.

Alex Clayton had been clocked at 110 mph and above on his 1st serve and often serves in the 90's on the 2nd serve..:)

Umm, wow? I mean, I'd expect DI tennis players to average 105-110 mph, not top out at, on 1st serves and 80-85 mph on there 2nd serves. Clayton's serve has never impressed me, but it's not a weakness either. Klahn on the other hand has a higher upside, good lefty serve, hope to see some good things from him.

Clayton serve not impressive ??? He has the Biggest serve in D1 tennis today. Nobody serves bigger than Alex, including Klahn. Brad has improved his 1st and 2nd serve a great deal during off season but still it isn't as big as Alex's serves.
Watch the Video carefully. See how Farah keeps missing the 2nd serve return. That is cause Brad is putting on some wicked insane lefty spin on the ball......

Did I say Klahn's serve wasn't good? Do you comprehend English? Is there a reason you type punctuation more times than needed?

Uhh, no, Farah has a bigger serve than Clayton. He gets into the 120s easy.

There's not alot of people that can serve harder then Clayton. There are some though.


Fedace is Clayton #2 now or not? I think Brad deserves the #1 spot.

If he does hybrid it with a multi or syn gut he must go through that in less then a day.

Is Alex #1 or Brad?

Bradley clearly #1 now after winning the Sherwood cup. Clayton however more powerful has been more inconsistant as of late...
