Hi,

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

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 :eek: 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" :devil: . That's OK now..

100 miles perhour = 161km/h.

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.

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

Thanks for your help.

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

Yeah 105-110mph.


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 :worship:

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. :yeah:

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

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?

Andy's fastest serve (also the fastest serve on record) was recorded at 153mph vs Paradorn Srichaphan at Stella Artois in 2004.

Yes you were corrected ;)

actually, if you already want to know, the duck's fastest serve was 155mph during davis cup (even though it probably wouldn't break 150 on a normal speed gun)

How many countries use the traditional English units of measurement instead of the metric system? US, UK, and?

Sorry for the stupid question.

So, how many countries do not use the traditional English units of measurement?

All countries that were not former British colonies, to start with.
And of the former British colonies, I know that at least Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland use the metric system.
