Don't worry, he won't be televised much. Or live-streamed even.

That's Serena level from the Azarenka match (on average per set).

Yeah we have so many serve bots in the top 50 and so few defensive baseliners. :rolleyes:

karlo hit 50 aces at RG vs hewitt in 2009
he lost in 5 sets and i guess hewitt is a better returner than whoever groth faced today...

Listen to me, vomit.
I remember you. Back in 2010, you used to be a good poster, who had one of the best signatures ever and I was expecting every time you updated it during big tournaments, that was pretty hardcore, pretty cool. I used to respect and enjoy your posts.

You had respect for all players. ALL-Players.

But, it was 2010, without Delpo on tour. Since Delpo came back, you turned yourself into a mindless hater-bitch. Awful, disgusting, only shitting on the boards and hating.

In the last year and a half, you haven't post any good posts. Only SHIT.

Was Groth the same guy who served the fastest serves ever?

I'm very impressed, but at the same time I feel as if tennis is taking a step backward.

Why?

Why?

maybe he indicating that he would that in today's game that players are well rounded enough that it is not possible for them to win on serve alone. Groth won today because of his serve, like Karlovic it is only big consistant weapon.

I sort of disagree with his comment though, the 90's was a period of big servers and that era was certainly more talented than today's

The comment made no sense. Guys are winning on consistency and defensive ability today, not on big serves, which is ironic because when guys were winning primarily based on serve, they weren't doing it year round, that's the difference.

Doesn't mean shit when he hardly wins a match.

affirmative. talk to us when he tosses in 100 aces in a single match against a decent player and actually manages to win that damn match.

Understandable though. It's nigh impossible to process the thought of ossie being a good poster.

His serve is way better since he broke up with Jarmilla ;)

look, no one expects to pay sam millions.

compare sam's attitude to roddick's decline and increasingly confusing serving and bitter, smarmy personality.
roddick believed he'd earn respect and sneak a slam win again (with half the ace numbers....LMAO).

How bad is he at tennis that he can have that serve and lose almost all his matches?
