yep. Holy Sh... is right . and even then he won only 46% of 2nd serves.
to me, it seems that preparing for a an avg 110mph second serve and i assume doing well with them (sampras winning only 46%) is a tremendous feat. and that was a bruiser to sampras' style of play.?
And, my understanding is, that was when they were measuring service speed when the ball crossed the net, rather than right after contact as they do today.
