It’s fun to hit things hard.

Hockey has slap shots, baseball has home runs, basketball has slam dunks – fans love to see professional athletes push the laws of physics to the limit. Tennis is no different. Let’s take a look at seven players who broke the radar gun with just a racquet and a ball.


Sam Groth – 163.7 mph

This guy smashes bombs on the regular. He hit a tennis ball faster than it’s EVER been hit before.

Sabine Lisicki – 131.0 mph

The 26-year-old German is one of the most-feared servers on tour. She also holds the WTA record for most aces in a match, with 27.

Milos Raonic – 155.3 mph

At 2012 Rogers Cup, Milos put on a show for the home fans. In 2016, he has won 81% of points on first serve and 58% on second serve, ranking second on tour in both categories. There isn’t footage from Toronto, but watch him stun Roddick in Memphis.


There is a ton of debate over who really hit the fastest...

Top 10 Fastest Serves of All Time

Here at Lob and Smash, we continue our in-depth look at the men’s game. In this countdown our focus is on service speed, a dominant feature of the modern day game. With new technology in tennis racquets and players getting stronger than ever, serves are faster than ever.

In this list we have only included one serve per player in the countdown of the 10 Fastest Serves of All Time. For example, Ivo Karlovic may have hit numerous serves that would have made it into the Top 10, but only his fastest is counted.

An interesting feature of this countdown is the number of record serves hit during the Davis Cup. That trends hold true for other players too, who have also hit the fastest serve of their career when represnting...

Table Tennis Ball Speed

How fast does a Table Tennis ball really go?

This last weekend a short little notice was posted on the International News section of the tabletennis.about.com forums. Apparently a New Zealander, Lark Brandt, won the inaugural "Worlds Fastest Smash Competition" with a smash of 112.5 kilometers per hour (69.9 MPH). A fair bit of discussion ensued and many people were surprised that the table tennis ball was travelling at a relatively slow pace compared to other sports.

So I did a bit of research and discovered that there was very little information about table tennis ball speed available on the internet. And the few claims that I could find gave very little information about how the claimed numbers were determined. So I decided to do a little bit...

Shuttler Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia has recorded the fastest smash in the men’s singles competition since September last year when the current world number two topped the list with a 408km/h missile at the 2015 Hong Kong Open, which he won at the Coliseum in Hung Hom.

The smash speeds, according to the Badminton World Federation, were recorded by Hawk-Eye Innovations, which provides instant-review services at major events since September last year and revealed on Wednesday.

The data shows that, while the men routinely smash over 390km/h, the women aren’t too far behind.

Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon, the 2013 world champion, delivered the fastest blow, clocking 372km/h in the semi-finals of the Malaysia Open this year.

Denmark’s Jan O Jorgensen came close to Lee’s pile-driver with a 407km/h hit in the semi-finals of the same Malaysia tournament.

During the month of September, Olympic.ca will be exploring “What makes the perfect athlete?” The goal is not to craft a definitive answer, but to acknowledge great athletes and achievements in sport – Canadian and international – throughout the month and welcome fans to discuss their favourite heroes and moments.

In analyzing “what makes the perfect athlete?”, we take some time to look at the records that exist for the objects used to play some of the fastest sports in the world (ranked in order of speed):

Badminton – 493 km/h

Would you ever have guessed that a badminton birdie (aka shuttlecock) is the fastest recorded object in sports? While testing out new racket technology in 2013, Malaysia’s Tan Boon Hoeng set a new world record with a 493 km/h smash. According to Guinness World Records, The fastest recorded hit during competition belongs to China’s Fu Haifeng, who managed to smash a 332 km/h shot during the 2005 Sudirman Cup. Still don’t believe...

The forehand in tennis and other racket sports such as table tennis, squash and badminton is a shot made by swinging the racket across one's body with the hand moving palm-first. In tennis, except in the context of the phrase forehand volley, the term refers to a type of groundstroke—a stroke in which the ball has bounced before it is struck. It contrasts with the backhand, the other type of groundstroke. For a right-handed player, the forehand is a stroke that begins on the right side of his body, continues across his body as contact is made with the ball, and ends on the left side of his body. It is considered the easiest shot to master, perhaps because it is the most natural stroke. Beginners and advanced players often have better forehands than any other shots and use it as a weapon.

Most forehands are hit with topspin because it helps keep the ball from landing outside the court. On some occasions, such as an approach shot, a player can opt to hit with backspin, which...

Speed of the Fastest Badminton Shuttlecock

Much to the surprise of many, who would have believed that a simple arrangement of 16 overlapping goose feathers attached to a rounded cork head could travel so fast? This lightweight, open conical shaped feather-and-cork construction is called a shuttlecock. Also commonly referred to as a birdie, cock, or shuttle, shuttlecocks are high-drag projectiles used in the game of badminton.

The shuttlecock's shape allows for it to be steady while "flowing" in the air, or aerodynamically stable. Regardless of its initial orientation, a shuttlecock will fly headfirst from one opponent to the other and remain it a headfirst configuration. Its aerodynamic behavior has even influenced the design of the spacecraft, SpaceShipOne allowing it to reach a maximum speed of Mach 3.09 (2,352 mph or 1,051.4 m/s).

Although badminton is not as popular in the US as opposed to sports such as tennis, it is extremely popular primarily in the...
