Re: Open 13 Reports

The babyface effect, I guess. Plus the comparison with Jouan.

Re: Open 13 Reports

Thanks for the reports. Some funny stuff there.

Olivetti is massive.

He has one of the biggest first serves in the game but very little variety on it. Like Jean said, it's very flat so he often just goes for 2 first serves on big points because he doesn't seem to have a good slice or kick to rely on.

Re: Open 13 Reports

Didn't Olivetti send down the the unofficial fastest serve in history at a recent challenger event..? I think Lajovic mentioned it on his twitter or something but they couldn't trust the speed gun...

Anyway great reports mate, keep em coming.

Ajde.

Re: Open 13 Reports

Olivetti is just a gateway to the arrival of the young Gooch.

Get ready.

Re: Open 13 Reports

226 km/h yesterday on the Center Court. And yeah, as Henry Chinaski said, he has no second serve, so he goes for two first serves.

Similar to J.Johansson, although the Swede had some margin on his second.

Thanks for that

It's a great and reliable speed, speedgun here doesnt seem generous like the one at San Jose.
Eagerly looking for his match against Fish.
