    It could have hit a crack on the court.

    The local park courts we play have a few cracks in the service boxes. Once in a while, a normal kick serve could jump like that in the video if it hits the cracks.

    Yeah everybody knows this video. No offense but the returner looks to be under 1.70 cm. Raonic, Djokovic etc. sometime hit high kicks constantly and you can the chances of an artificial bounce is very low on pro courts. Still looks very good for a rec player. He might be a rec servebot he he

    Isner is the only player I know who has hit a few kick aces, one against Goffin, one against Kohlschrieber and a few more.

    Some of Federer's ad-serves out wide at the WTF this year were quite amazing. Used it frequently too!

    I use to hit every serve like that ...

    Here is an image of that Isner serve. 2.16 meters high, and it's still rising. That's absurdity!

    Abberations don't count, unless you can repeat it a couple more times that same day.
    I won't even look at that vid, it's old, it hit something on court, it can never be duplicated.
    Lots of 4.5+ players can serve a twist that bounces over 6' high at the baseline, and some up quite a bit higher, as much as 7', AT the baseline.
    Mine don't go that high. Best on court temps over 68 degrees would be around 6' high at the baseline, but slow, maybe 65 mph at best.
    You guys read Shroud's post that one of my top/slices kicked up around 6'2" or so, but it was an abberation, something I cannot do consistently.

    Nice high bounce, but you don't get credit unless you can hit it again, and at least during the same day.
    I do reason you cannot do it every time, but once ever in your life doesn't give you credit for a 7' high second serve.

    Like hell...that was hellava kick serve dude...I've seen a couple that could hit them like that...but they were 6'6 or so. Their problem though was they moved like turtles on the court. :)

    Serve was definetely a nice high bounce!
    But since you cannot ever do that again, and certainly not within your next 20 kick serves, that serve was an abberation, and it hit something you didn't find.
    Someone once claimed my serves (top/slice), can bounce 7' high at the baseline, I don't claim it because it happenned maybe ONCE ever, and most of them bounce around chin high.

    I can hit a serve that bounces eight feet high every time. It's called a lob serve.

    That wasn't a lob serve, was it?
    Notice, the bounce height was higher than at any point in the trajectory, meaning, it hit something on the court.

    I realize the ball hit something on the ground. I was just being sarcastic about my eight foot high lob serves.
