the more impressive is it was against hewitt, i remember one wide ace at 210 kph, and then some people say he has not a big serve :tape

he must respect hewitt's good returns, so he concentrates on getting as many good serves in as possible, i guess.

Amazing he has never passed 30 aces in a match. But he is a master of tactics - serves stronger only when the opponent is a good returner :shrug:

Well I think the relevant number is the max he has done in a set. (30 in 3 sets is already a very high rate, although 30 in 5 is pretty good too)

Federer has played many 4-setters and 5-setters so it's surprising he isn't a member of "club 30" considering his skills to serve more than 10 in a single set, what's funnier in a non-tie-break set.

That is an elite club for sure, and barring Pete and Roddick I cannot imagine there are many other No. 1s in there.

Of course, it only makes it more impressive that without serving so many aces he still wins 97% of his matches. Just emphasises his all round skills that much more.
