Question Fernando 150 kms/h & next tournaments...

Hi,

Does somebody know how 150kms/h do in milles/hour.. ????

I'm going to do 4 tournaments at the end of April !!!!
I'm going to play the French Championship qualification the last week of april.
After this, a regional tournament in 11/12 and 13/14 years old,..... Yes in the two categories in order to play bigger and stronger player.
Then again a 13/14 years old tournament next to my town but on hard court.

During the last month I've practice a lot my "serv", first and second ball in order to go to " 150 km/h" . That's OK now..

Re: Fernando 150 kms/h & next tournaments...

100 miles perhour = 161km/h.

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".

Re: Fernando 150 kms/h & next tournaments...

i could be wrond, but i thought you had to multiply miles with 1,6 in order to get km

If you are playing in France they use km/h and not mph anyway.

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

Other way around. See GWH's post.

It's 93, 21 km/h to 150 miles per hour.

No, I think that the good answer :
I've serve at 150km/h so it's 94 miles per hour

Thanks for your help.

Do somebody in this forum go faster with a ball ???
I'm sure yes...

Ok I find better than me, but we have to do something with speed and age....

For me it's :
year Speed Mph
11 94 mph

So if I do 94/11 = 8,5 MPH per year

And for you, can you do the same .....

Well, I believe Roddicks fastest serve was 146 mph (I will be corrected for this, no doubt) and Andy is 22 years old.
That gives Andy a score of... 6,6!

Good for you, you beat Andy.

Yes good score Andy, more than 5mph is very good

But I will prefer not to be in front of him for the moment, probably later...

You do know that the older you get the lower the average will be of your mph/age?
