    Just go to the ATP site and pull up Andy Roddick. You can pull up player stats for his career or individual years. That's where I got those other stats.

    And Andy's serve stats are pretty good. His motion was/is very complicated, but he repeated his rhythm like a metronome. He hit almost an ace per game in his career, but only one double fault every 6 1/2 games. And for my money, you can see a clear relationship between the forward movement of his rock and the toss of the ball; it was only after the ball left his hand that he went into his deep knee bend.

    Thanks! I read Yandell's article on Roddick. The guys gotta have the best first serve of all time.

      Possibly! With inhuman shoulder flexibility.

        What really impressed me about Roddick was when John pointed out quantitatively that Roddick's 2nd serve had more MPH's AND RPM's that Sampras.
