How exactly are serves and strokes in tennis measured in terms of velocity? Is it when the ball leaves the racket, when it passes the net, or when it gets to the receiver. How does it work??

I believe it is measured over the net, but I am not positive.

Nope, I am 100 % positive that it is measured when it leaves the racket

Def when it leaves the racket. The ball loses 45% of its speed by the time it gets to the receiver. Also there's about a 10-20% loss of speed by the time it gets to the net.
