and to produce speed is simple, you need the hitting unit of arm/racket moving FORWARD at impact.
Maybe the better term is "aggravation". And, it may even require much more racket head speed than the 65mph of the inputs in order to generate same. My most aggravating slices actually still have backspin on them after the first bounce, and that bounce is extraordinarily low.
