Re: what's your serve speed?

I'd say around 20 miles per hour or so.

i haven't clocked mine as well, but my range would probably be only in the 110-115. 120 if i want to make my tennis elbow worse.

nice avatar by the way!

where do you go to get your serve clocked i know tennis tournys have those booths but those things suck. bad requets and and no room at all, its a little cage.

i used clocked as the wrong term. we only have a low tech radar gun here, so my range is probably inaccurate...

Re: what's your serve speed?

I clocked mine recently at approx 195 km/h

That was my best time in a series of 10 first serves I hit. All the others were in the 180 - 190 range.

Re: what's your serve speed?

max i can get up to is 110. I can hit faster and not get them in but thats nothing to be proud of. I also have a really weak second serve so if any of you ever play me hope i miss my first serve. then you can murder me.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: what's your serve speed?

Well last time I had it clocked it was about 94mph. I'm 5'8". I know I'm not the strongest guy, I dont play in many tournaments these days so I'm happy with it because I can place it on a dime well not a dime lol.. maybe something bigger But seriously I have pretty good placement, which helps me a lot.
