    Low I reckon. His best is currently just shy of 150, he'd need to up it by more than 13 mph which is a fair whack.
    The 163 mph serve isn't officially recognized by ATP, as it was in a South Korean challengers event, so the technology used is questionable.

    Actually he'd only need to improve by 7mph. The 163mph record is not officially recognised by the ATP, due to the measuring equipment used, so the record is 156. And if you do count the 163, Janowicz has a 156mph that also doesn't officially count. so still 7 off.

    For next years Wimbledon can we have a red button option where we can mute Andrew Castle? The BBC really should look into this idea.

    I thought it was still Roddick's 155, didn't realise it was 163 now
    Roddick's 155 is the 3rd fastest ever (4th if we count the "163 mph" one). Raonic (155.3) and Karlovic (156) both beat that record.

    The final will be big. Hopefully Murray can get a win against Djokovic, he did it in the Olympics and US Open last year. Come on Andy!

    Simple solution to the roof situation. Start play an hour earlier. That way, in the event of a long first semi there should be enough time to finish the second semi in natural light and in the event that the first semi is over in a couple of hours schedule the second semi as "Not before 4 p.m."

    Lol, this guy can't serve for ****.

    Well done Andy
    I'm quite surprised that Janowicz's main strength is his massive serve, and it just completely disintegrated by the end of the match. Murray must have got way more than twice the aces he got

    What a rubbish game from both janowicz and murray! They both played below average and acted childish. I wish the match was between del potro and djocovic in the finals.

    Why do you hate Murray so much? You know most of us do support Murray on this thread, on a UK website. Watch the BBC documentary on him, he's really not a guy to hate at all
