I was the auction winner of Myiesha Simmons' Speed Trac X radar unit and I couldn't wait to see what kind of speed I was serving at. Boy, was I surprised....
I figured my flat serve was about 100. Not even close!.....88 mph. Slice into the deuce court: 76 mph. And lastly, the 'kick' serve I've been trying to learn: 48-56 mph.
Brings a whole new level of appreciation to the pros that are serving at 130 on a regular basis.

you should appreciate your speeds. you are not a professional. i have some pretty good serves. but i have been beaten by people who can just barely get it over the net too, so i became a good returner, something i have to work at that will back up the serve and be there when the serve is not, besides putting a big servers serve back across the net. breaks him down a few button holes since the ego is part of the trust in the big serve.
