According to the Australian Open sight, he hit a 153 mph. :eek: Does anyone know if this is yet another glitch in their system?

Thanks for that, I was just about to ask this same question in the match thread. I was like wtf?! there's no way, I don't think he's ever even broken 140.

Fed needs to improve his serve percentage, he's often hovering around 60% these days.

Yes, the AO site is a leading authority when it comes to statistical inaccuracies. On day one players were rolling in second serves at 80km/h on average, officially.

Federer needs to get his serve like it was in the clay/grass season last year.

Pretty normal for Federer isn't it? Since 2004 his 1st serve percentage has been between 60 and 65% i do believe.

The day Roger plays his last match before retirement, he will go for broke on every serve in an attempt to brake that record:p

Seriously I doubt he would brake the 140mph barrier even if he did.

His movement is such that he just can't serve that fast. no way

have anyone visited the official AO mobile site? it seems that everyone is serving at super human speeds... :lol:

this is the statistics of the same match... both have notched top speed of over 200mph... :eek: :lol:
