How fast is YOUR serve???

Today, at my tennis club, we had at our disposition a radar to see how fast is our serve...

Mine: 162 km or 100 mph

How is yours???

average 1st serve speed is between 153-155 km/h

2nd serve - let's not talk about that

I have no idea but they call me Rambo because of my serve...

Second serve speed is improving but still 2 slow...

No you canĺt help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Donĺt care what the truth is
You will be here come the day

Fastest ever against the radar gun 88. Average speed of a first serve that goes in, about 60.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

The boys at my training always laugh at me because of my serve...I┤m a girl and I have a pretty decent serve (if it┤s on), but they say I serve like a man!

WELCOME BACK, MARTINA

fastest serve

The fastest serve I have hit on the radar gun was 133 miles per hour. In matches probably 105 to 120 with spin.

not hard, but good% and well placed which compensates a little

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
