Federer 153 mph serve?

According to the Australian Open sight, he hit a 153 mph. Does anyone know if this is yet another glitch in their system?

All things will come with a little time when you believe..miracles happen..

Re: Federer 153 mph serve?

Thanks for that, I was just about to ask this same question in the match thread. I was like wtf?! there's no way, I don't think he's ever even broken 140.

Fed needs to improve his serve percentage, he's often hovering around 60% these days.

Re: Federer 153 mph serve?

Yes, the AO site is a leading authority when it comes to statistical inaccuracies. On day one players were rolling in second serves at 80km/h on average, officially.

Re: Federer 153 mph serve?

Federer needs to get his serve like it was in the clay/grass season last year.

Pretty normal for Federer isn't it? Since 2004 his 1st serve percentage has been between 60 and 65% i do believe.

The day Roger plays his last match before retirement, he will go for broke on every serve in an attempt to brake that record

Seriously I doubt he would brake the 140mph barrier even if he did.
