    Dude hit a 163 mph ace. Looks like a big boy. It behooves us to know his setup.

    Sammy boy!!! Guys funny as hell! I dunno his setup as of late, last I saw him he was using a PDGT with RPM but that was last year.

  3. Did he really? Was it in a match or practice? Would it be classed as the fastest serve?

    He and Dent play the same type of tennis - S 'n' N. Serve and nothing. Very nice for watching but won't get them big wins.

    Dudes a monster. 193cm is pretty tall too!

    It always makes me wonder though, how accurate are those radar guns? A 12KMP increase seems abnormal in comparison to the previous records.

    Damn he hits like a freight train. There is so much raw power in his strokes. I could see him being on his game and easily getting a lot higher in the ranks. He's a beast!

    He's a beast! That's what Jarmila said I'm sure, she hasn't played worth a lick since they split up.

    Does he use the PD or the roddick? Doubt it matters since he leads either one I am sure.

    Taylor had amazing hands up at net though and a Wicked slice backhand...and the 150mph serve from time to time

    Groth...fast serve, but nothing else, but i can't really attest to that because I haven't seen him play but one or two matches
