Djokovic Sets Fastest Serve Record in ProTennis History
If Olympic official match statistics is correct (I think it is), Djokovic has achieved something other than Gold or Silver in Beijing 2008. During the 2nd set of the semi final against Nadal at the Beijing Olympic, Novak Djokovic’s first serve was recorded to be 250 kmph (155.34 mph), breaking Andy Roddick’s fastest serve of all time, 249.4 kmph (155 mph). After I saw this, I have mentioned the new record in Djokovic’s Wikipedia page.
My source of the record is official Beijing Olympic tennis site:
Readers, you may write to or call Olympic/ITF people or check sports news media outlets to verify the record so that it stays as fact.
