Isn't he the coach of that journeywoman who changed her last name? I didn't even know he played pro tennis. Lol.

Not bad after shoulder surgery and hilariously low ball toss. Too bad the Grothawk is dead.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Where was it ?

I had read that Olivetti had also been measured quicker than Karlovic but being in a challenger the measure had not been officialized.

Olivetti never had one to go in at a world speed record. Plus he's barely played challengers.

Re: Samuel Groth breaks serve speed world record (163mph/263km/h)

That smashes Karlovic's 156mph. I doubt this one was accurate. Though he has served 143mph at the Australian Open before...

No one sane really believes in that record.

The true record is 153mph from Roddick. I think both Groth and Olivetti are capable of taking it down.

Re: Samuel Groth breaks serve speed world record (163mph/263km/h)

The world record of Karlovic was a joke. Petzschner hit a normal backhand return! No one returns a 251 kph serve with ease. But Petzschner did it. So this record is nothing more than a joke.

Haas on his way back
