They're both European and a few years ago the ATP changed it's policy of rounding players height up when converting European players height from cm to inches. It was in the news when Federer's height changed from 6'2" to 6'1" a few years ago.

Soderling reached 145mph once per match usually.

Krajiceck, Monfils, Cilic, Rusedski, Ivanisevic and Yannick Noah all are all between 6'4" and range between fast and lightning fast.

Tomic doesn't have a fast twitch muscle fibre in his body. And he has no serve. He stands in the middle of the baseline and hits great groundstrokes and that's it.

Even Isner moves significantly faster than Tomic and he's 6'9".
"they're as fast as federer"....yep, have a good night (do tell cilic and rusedski they're as fast as federer if you get that chance...rusedski is enough of an a-hole that he might play along...cilic i'm guessing would just give you a blank stare)
