At which point do they measure the serve speed?
Okay, so i'm posting this and hoping to get a clarifying response:
I've been thrown into an identity crisis as of late - ye see, i'm a power server (at least i thought i was) - i've had it video analysed at 196 km/h.
But then last week, my coach pulls out this strange little apparatus and sets it right under the net. And truth be told, i couldn't push it up over 145. Not once.
I thought i was ridiculous - i'm 15, and i average 6-12 aces per best-of-3. I outserve players 3 years my senior. So.. At what point of the flight do they measure the speed?!
