    You should have seen Agassi vs Phillipoussis last year, he had something like 50 aces, but yeah 38 aces is nothing less than spectacular.

    Do not be surprised if this kid Johansson makes it all the way to the semi's. This guy is an ace machine, and one of my dark horses to win the tournament. He has posted insane ace numbers over his first 3 matches. I just hope they eventually put him on tv. I've been waiting to get a look at this guy for almost a year already.

    He's always had a big serve-I recall him being clocked at 136-pretty good for a guy under six feet tall. Unfortunately for him and his ace machine, they ran up against the Fed express, who neutralized his serve (and everything else he has).

    Phil,
    They're talking about Joachim Johansson, the young 6 foot 6 Swede, who's been making waves this year. He's got a great chance at making the semis in his wimbledon debut.

    I believe you Phil. I've always been impressed that a guy his size can bring the heat consistently.

    101 aces in 3 matches for Joachim...thats 34 a match...wow

    Thomas' fastest serve for the tournament is 134...so I can easily believe he's hit 136...he's one of the best players under 6 feet
