The above should put to rest the myth that the pros take it slow till near contact and abruptly accelerate. The acceleration is present throughout the swing.

If one swings slowly till almost catching the ball, and then accelerates, then perhaps he will only get 17 mph at impact! Luckily, Fed did not know about such modern tennis tips and learnt to hit the ball hard.
