I can get my 2nd serve slice about 43 :lol:

and on serious note, i dont know, never clocked it. but i would guess. 115-120 range.

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 :confused: 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...

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.

dont laugh--------but i have a relatively slow serve compared to you guys----im servin at about 70 - 90, i have never really checked but its about that...

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.

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 :D well not a dime lol.. maybe something bigger :D But seriously I have pretty good placement, which helps me a lot.

I am 6'1 1m84 and my best service down the T was at 207km/h

Probably 130-140 km/h max :p

i've been clocked at 115, but i don't imagine my average would even be above 100.

i got clocked at 119 at the nasdaq last year (unfortunately i was 1 freaking mph off setting the record for that day :( )

MisterQ
10-03-2005, 06:26 PM
Mine's not very fast, but I don't double fault much and I move it around the box pretty well. Plus I make sure I only befriend crappy returners. ;)

At those tournaments aren't they only clocking how hard you can hit it and not how hard you can hit it and actually get it in?

OK, Im like 5'1 5'2 my serve is in the 65-70 range, but then again I've only been playing for two years...

never clocked my serve. but yesterday I was in some adidas exhibition and clocked a football kick with 101.3 kmh :woohoo:

My average first-serve speed is about 105. I think the hardest I've been clocked at (with the serve getting in) is 121, and that was just under a month ago at a practice session. Not bad for a gal, eh? ;)

:lol: that settles it. everyone here is lying except for those of us who will admit to 65 mph. but I've only been playing for about 16 months so I guess this time next year, I should be up to about 300 mph on my first serve. :rolleyes:

My hardest was about 107 mph, my avg is usually in the mid 80s because I'm not competing or anything

Isn't the fastest serve hit by a pro woman somewhere around 127 or 128? :eek:

6 foot. 120 - 130km/h

But I don't play. I only have the occasional hit.

Scotso
10-04-2005, 06:47 AM
My serve really isn't that bad, but I use a heavy slice even on the first serve. In my kind of league, placement is more important than power.

My first serve = Dementieva's second serve. :haha:

Seriously...I don't have a clue. I know it's probably one of the better ones at my level...but we're pretty far down the ladder. Placement, spin and consistency is far more important than pace.

madmanfool
10-04-2005, 02:32 PM
I'm afraid I can't get it over 160km/h, I'm more a placement server;)

SaFed2005
10-04-2005, 02:37 PM
70-90 mph
I can hit them faster (90 -110) but only on my good days, which don't come too often.

tripb19
06-28-2006, 06:35 AM
Only between 170-180 km/h, but I get good angles ;)

My second serve is rubbish though

El Legenda
06-30-2006, 04:23 AM
okay, i went with few friends that play tennis at place where they had a gun, my best that went in was 123mph, when i play i normally put in about 35-45% :lol: :sad: at 110-120, mostly in the 113-115.
2nd 85-100 :)

and im 6'11 ;)

07-02-2006, 01:14 AM
6'1 - can crank it up to around 190km/h

These days most concentrate on reducing the pace, increasing my 1st serve % and try and get more kick into it though so on average 165 - 175km/h more reasonable

my 1st serve average (when I'm not tired :lol: ) is 165-180km/h

my fastest serve might be 190-195km/h.

I'm 1.83mts

Umm oh yeah just started playing yesterday, clocked at 186000 miles/s. And uh, that was my second serve. Yeah. :D

I'd' say half previous were liars.

And yeah, I'm a teen serving probably 55-65.

Hawkman
07-25-2006, 02:51 AM
I am 5'9"

Have been clocked at 123 mph and an average of 106 mph. The disparity is an average 2nd serve is around 70 :/

my fastest is 93 mph, and average is about 80 kph! That's not bad considering im only 5 foot 2!

SaFed2005
11-18-2006, 07:21 PM
my 1st serve is around 80-90 mph
2nd serve probably around 60-70 mph

But serving is one of the weakest part of my games. I have a much better return game. I break people a lot but also get broken a lot... hehe

I turned 15 about 2 months ago and i think i have a big serve for my age and rating , i measure its speed with a speed gun which is highly accurate. i hit 10 serves and then average it out, ( it's the best way to do it, try it).


1. 81
2. 84
3. 82
4. 86
5. 90
6. 91
7. 93
8. 95
9. 97
10.96
Average = around 90mph , i can top spin it in at about 765mph - 85mph

MPH , but of course i warmed up first . lol. , ps. all these serves were in .

what do you think

Tommy@Zhang

I tested at the Rogers cup in Toronto 2006.The radar reads 126m/h,It might be wrong,but I think I can hit a 120m/h serve at 65%

RickDaStick
01-06-2007, 12:49 AM
118-120 mph is my best. But if i want to get it in consistantly i have to go at 105-110.
