Even if you do know that, you still have to make clean contact. You ever watch Federer serve on the deuce court? His wide serve is likely the most feared of all of his serves. Why? It's nearly impossible to read, and has so much spin that even if you read it, it's moving away from you so quickly that he's already prepared to put away the return. That's against other top pros. That serve rarely tops 110mph.
I don't know where my own 110 mph serve is going, so I don't see how my opponent would be able to read it.
