I'm no numbers guy, but this show ESPN does always catches my interest.

Says "Video not available in your country".

Then again on second though, I'm not sure I want to watch Fish.

He's like a bad imitation of Roddick.

He's ranking higher than Roddick, so does that make a Roddick a worse imitation of himself?

It was a neat video, take away should really be that he gets his toss within 1'' of his ideal placement, that's pretty amazing.

He uses his racquet too! I wonder what string he's using.

It says Fish can serve at speeds over 140 mph, which I have never seen or heard of for him. The most he can serve is probably mid to upper 130's. Maybe Fish has hit a few 140 serves, but I really doubt he can serve over 140 mph.

Mardy hit a serve at 144 mph at the 2007 IW tournament.
