Jensen Brooksby Serve
Analyzed by John Yandell
Jensen Brooksby has been creating a stir. His strong results in Washington and at Newport were followed by 3 match wins in the U.S. Open before taking the first set off Novak Djokovic and losing in 4 in the round of 16. His ranking has shot up to 81.
During the Novak match his serve got a lot of comment from John and Pat McEnroe. His top speed on his first serve was around 115mph. The consensus was that for a guy 6'4" with huge groundstrokes it should higher. During the broadcast, Andy Roddick texted Mac and said if Jensen came to Texas he could "fix" his serve in 4 days.
My opinion is it doesn't need to be "fixed." I say enhanced. Recently we had a chance to film some super slow motion footage of Jensen's serve. Here is what I saw.
