Question Boys and girls : I chalenge you ....

Hi,

I'm Fernando from France, today I've serv at 150 km/h, my best service.
That's make 94 miles per hour.

I'm going to make a game, give your age and your (real) speed serv, and we will see who are in the top 10 :

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

year Speed Mph
11 94 mph

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

Not bad no ??? Anybody have a better score....

Re: Boys and girls : I chalenge you ....

You are only 11 years old? Not bad at all.
By the way, I don't play tennis myself.
Congratulations on achieving your best serve.

Re: Boys and girls : I chalenge you ....

My P.B. is 112 mph, thats being recorded-although I've hit bigger without a gun.

Thus, my MPH per year = 7.46

Re: Boys and girls : I chalenge you ....

what.....that dont mean anything....more important is how many of does do u get in..


So ur say at by time ur 20 so 8.5x9= 76.5+94(u serve now) = 170.5mph...do u really think ur gonna serve at that speed when ur 20

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! thats not how that works.

No, No, No.....


But If other member of this forum are not playing tennis, or don't have test them serv for the moment, you could choose a pro player during the next match you will see and do the same calcul Speed / age.

But thanks not to take all of you Andy with his top serv....

Cliffy Drysdale told me Andy Roddick served 165 mph during a practice session during the US vs. Croatia Davis Cup tie.

No if think a 5 year with 50mph will have :
50/5 = 10 MPH/year , but I don't think it's possible, If yes tell us, and if it's you you will be N°1.

But I think it's not you ????
So give your score or take a pro, but no Andy Score.....

It's just for fun RDucky, If you don't like it, go to practice your serv and expect not to play again us.....

We are making 8,5 and more mph/year.
