newayz it isnt letting me add spoiler to the title for some reason i dunno y.

sorry anyway but you are stupid to be browsing these boards if you were reallt going to watch the match.

or maybe you just like having a go at people

Robbie, don't edit the title, cause you can't. There's no prob with u talking about the serve, just edit the result of the match ;)

If people don't want to be spoiled then maybe they shouldn't go to the forums until they've seen whatever matches they want to see. Have some self control. You don't live in the forums.

Wow, serious heat! 155mph ties the record if this is correct!

I agree. watching a match that is already over for the sake of suspense and result is something i cant digest {sure it can be watched for analysis and entertainment etc}. It sounds very silly to me. well...diff ppl ..diff opinions i guess.

TW banning someone for doing that sounds very odd to me. Well this is their forum. so better go with what their rules state.

If the channel doesnt telecast it live, tough luck mate.

My math would put it at 154 MPH not 155. (248 X .621371= 154.09976)
So is 154 the new record?

naw 155 is the record, not 154....
I always thought that to convert km. to mi. it was x .6...
whatev...thats still a huge serve

248Kph converts to 154.100mph - but it's still the new world record by 1.119mph. Roddick got up to 246.2kph (152.981mph) back in '04.

However, this is only relevant to records - if he can constantly serve at around the late 130s, early 140s with the impressive 68% 1st-serve he's been achieving, then he's a big force to be reckoned with - especially at Wimbledon.

Roddick has the record with 249.4 kph (155 mph)

Poor Roddick. If his record was broken (was it?), he wouldn't be the BEST at anything now.

Nah, Roddick has the record with a gun clocking 155 mph, not 249.

I don't know about about the conversion rate. But Chris' serve converted at 1.608 would be 154,23 mph, but converted as 1,6, as they usually do, it would be an exact 155 mph.

I think we'll never know ;)

Well, what was clocked, in KPH, by the gun that registered Andy's record??? That's the key to knowing if the record still holds or if it was equaled or whatever...

Andy clocked a 155 mph IN mph.
Chris clocked a 248 kmh IN kmh.

Again, I don't know the convertion rate between mph and kmh in the Getronics. If it's 1.6 instead of 1.608, then the 248 kph is exactly 155 mph, tying Andy's record.

Ok, understood. This is what I rule. Since converting with 1.6 would "equal" the record, we have to be more exact and, therefore, converting with 1.608 is necessary. Meaning Andy has the record. I have spoken.

And what if the Getronics also converted at 1.6 when he served?
That means he also hit 248 instead of 249 ;)

You have spoken, I have spoken, they all have spoken :)

but Andy could've served 155.49 MPH which would be more KMPH? Just a speculation... that kind of heat is beastly either way.

Has any mention of Guccione's speed serve been in tennis news?

Freedom

Never heard it before today. But then again, tennis never gets any attention. Kournikova is probably still the most well-known "tennis" player among non-tennis people in the world.

Roddick hit one at 249.4 kph so he has the world record

But really, after a serve gets over, say, 130 mph, does it really make a difference?

Yes.
