I didn't see the game, but statistics of Roland Garros put Andy Roddick out of top 20 Serve Speed, when the 20th serve speed is only 198km/h (123mp/p). A new style of Andy's Game? I hope so, but he will can't forget his service.

I noticed he slowed down quite a lot of his serves. He got hammered in the ace count I think the commentators were saying. I'd say its a pretty smart move.

He's been going for serve % rather than aces a long time ago.
I think it's more than obvious that on clay the speed will not be the same huh... :p

but I think the poster's saying not just that his serve speed is down, but that others have faster speeds. even though its clay --where everyone's serve speed reduces-- I am surprised that andy's is not the fastest so far

that list is very wrong. Roddick hit a serve at 217 km/h, Ljubicic one at 218 km/h. Nalbandian did not hit at 207. neither coria at 206

Guess ya can't really say he won the match with his serve:p
