I had the chance to get my service caught on radar at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this year. I hit it as hard as I could, but still maintaining control and hitting the middle of this painted square on the aparatus. My manly speed? Only 100 mph. But it was the highest speed we saw while watching the line of would-be Roddicks give it a go. People actually cheered for me.
The point? It is much harder to hit a serve over 100 mph than most people think! I could've sworn I'd be at 120!
What's your fastest serve?
