153 mph?!

Postby FulhamFan » Fri Jun 11, 2004 11:07 am

Andy Roddick broke the WR for the 3rd time. :shocked:

This time it's official because it's at an ATP match instead of davis cup.

What do you think is the theorectical limit to a tennis serve. I think the fastest that will ever be possible is 160.

I think they should get randi johnson to wack some balls and measure the speed regardless of where they land to see how fast they could go.

153??? I echo that jaw dropper. :o

Why is it unofficial if its ATP not Davis Cup? :?
As long as there's a gun there, and its an official match, its official I'd imagine.

I would think with the dimensions, there would have to be some sort of threshhold. Unless some guy 7-foot was serving! ;) The possibilities have a lot to do with the racquet technology.

I haven't seen a Guiness Book of World Records in quite some time, but last I saw, they listed Bill Tilden with the fastest serve ever at 163.6 mph. I think they measured that one with a sun dial! 8-[
