    You could have just as easily asked "Grand Slams: 0 to 5 in a year? Is that possible?"

    I know this is an old post and the guy might not even be around anymore but it's an interesting perspective.

    I wonder what level Buford is. To me, his view and understanding of this a little naïve and short sighted. (wow my browser put two dots on the i! cool) . He didn't realize that it's still "pace" (if that's what he was looking for) in the end though not immediately. It's more of a long term, like after several shots before the ball outpaces him.

    I also believe that that's how the sport is designed. For similar levels, player is not supposed to hit outright winners and win a match. That would be dumb or severely mismatched. There needs to be some game and athleticism in it, no?

    Hey Stergios. Good luck. I made it up to strong 3.5 and low level 4.0 in about 9 months. Ive got a good sports background; soccer, baseball, x-ctry, track, etc. Pretty fit for my age (38), but I am limited by my height/size (5'10"/150 lbs).

    If you are athletic and have some sporting success in your background, fitness, good hand eye coordination, access to courts/players, I think 4.0 is attainable. But man that next jump up to 4.5+ is murder...just don't think it's really possible.

    I think you would need to be a freaky athlete...like some sort of 6'6" 22 year old with a natural 115mph serve. Does this describe you?
