I served an ace at 207 kph(129 mph)
I served at 81 the other day. My fastest ever.
Im learning to serve.
I suppose the one that falled into the serve-square was about 20 mph.
I consitantly serve 125mph im 16 haha not joking Fastest is 131mph thats the fastest ive had tested anyway.
what racket do you use???your height????
served 110 and im 14
105 mph in the box, im' 15 it was with an ncode npro. BUT i don't think teh radars at tourneys are accurate because if you serve rite at them it records a faster speed then if you serve a little bit away from them, because my firend had a **** serve and it hit the fence at the side and it was like 20 mph lol but hten he did the same **** serve rite at the machine and it said 46 mph, then i served and i got 105 mph :mrgreen:
100 im 14 hope to get faster
im 16, my fastest serve was 128, my fastest serve that went in the box was 122, but I seriously think that I have and can serve even faster with a better technique, When I get my first serve in its almost always an ace...especially down the line baby!
647 MPH...but I have trouble with consistency.
156 MPH! j/kz... you guys are so lucky, I don't know where to measure... I'd love to though...
saw roddick serving 135 at cincy the other day... makes we wonder how many of us are actually over 100 mph.. i was sure i was, but now i don't know. lead tape definitely helps me get huge serves.
if roddick's 153 mph serves can be equated to tiger or vijay's 360 yard drive, then 100 mph serve equates to 240 yard drive, which does seem reasonable... but can you compare the two sports/measures?
110 with the nCodes.
I really think that sometimes its not measured right or exactly only in specific circumstances, and plus you arent accounting for the precision, accuracy and spin that pros put into their serves as well, its totally different
I serve around 128 avg on my first serve. My HARDEST flat serve is 134. I'll try to find a video that I can post. Clocked at my club.
I haven't had mine clocked since the late 70's. At that time, using my Spalding Big Bow I was second in a first serve contest clocked at 112. Not bad for wood.
If I had to guess I'm probably about 110 average and my kicker is about 85-90.
119 mph at Amelia Island last year
I served 155. But that was at Davis Cup, it's probably more like 70 on regular radars.
Served against Roscoe Tanner
Back in the late 1980s Head had a promotion at pro tournaments that if you beat Roscoe Tanners best serve of the day you could win any Head racquet.
You paid a dollar for three serves if I rememeber right.
Tanner served 118 mph.
I spent about five bucks and about threw out my shoulder trying to beat it. I got one at 124 mph, but it was on clay and they checked the mark and I just missed.
My best in the box that day was 117 mph, but the balls were not new... that's my excuse anyway.
Needless to say I left without a racquet. I think three or four young guns beat it that day.
154 km/h im 19.
i serve an average of 15 aces in a match in clay, i served 27 in carpet.
i going to try with a pd+ of a friend
Vantage, wood frames have the smae power as modern frames but waaay less contorl. Btw Mark Philipousis tested both rackets and he hit the same speeds on his serve.
I you are serving 130mph why arent'y you a pro????? :?: :?:
I use the conquest and I get over 200 mph with it, amazing racquet ... http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/shop1/sports/babolat/03.jpg
that babola on your linked picture looks like it is animated so freakin shiny... btw i serve around 476mph but i have trouble with consistency.
How good are you? What is your NTRP rating. Do you play any ITF junior tournaments? What raquet do you use?
95-100mph? 170-180kph is my max for a well hit serve down the T. I'm not very tall, so if i hit any harder than 150-160kph and i'll hit slightly long on most serves.
Do you want to tell me that you can serve as fast as roddicks average serve and many other top pros?
He lives in the UK
Thats my highest also.
but that was a couple years ago so i dont know about now
Wood vice graphite? Not even close. My Big Bows were super-duper flexy, if I had to guess probably measured in the high 40's.
Graph is way stiffer, therefore way more powerful. Oh, and wood is a hell of a lot more controllable.
Babolat aero pro drive with lead at 12 and in the handle my height is 6ft4
