Default Fastest forehands?

Hey guys (and girls), i don't know if this thread exists already, but i was wondering what are the fastest forehands that top players ever hit?? I know Monfils hit one at 118 mph ( 190 kph), but what are the speeds of Fed, Nadal, Djokovic, Gonzalez, Del Potro, Soderling, Tsonga, Berdych...?

Default Re: Fastest forehands?

Serve - Andy Roddick - 155 mph - Is anyone surprised that Roddick broke this record?


Forehand - Gael Monfils - 120 mph - Monfils usually uses lots of top spin on his forehand, but this shows how potent his forehand is when he flattens it out.


Backhand - David Nalbandian - 110 mph


Overhead - Andy Roddick - 180ish mph

I don't know if delpo hit the fastest but he seems to do it many times with great speed.

He definitely does not hit them the fastest consistently.. Obviously he can lay the ball almost harder than anyone of the tour, but problem is, the ball has the be at a good height. I mean players such as Gonzalez, Verdasco, Blake, etc in their primes probably hit the ball fastest consistently.

I don't buy any of the numbers listed, except for the Roddick serve.

There is no way that Monfils hit a 118 mph forehand.

I've seen Nadal and Del Potro both hit around 108-110 mph forehands....the number is probably very close to 110.
