110 is a very good serve for a 4.5 (even a lot of 5.0s don't reach that) but still you are not going to put away an ATP return against such a serve. 110 is a WTA serve. that is batting practice for ATP players. they will not rip a winner every time (but often
) but if they are not they will still deliver a low and sharp return that the 4.5 volleyer cannot handle.
