Zenniz at the 36th ITF Seniors World Team and Individual Championships 2016
The 36th ITF Seniors World Team and Individual Championships 2016 took place in Helsinki. About 400 players from 31 different countries came to Finland. These Championships feature men’s and women’s teams from the over 50, 55 and 60 age categories battling it out to bring their respective World Championship titles home. Our team really enjoyed the event and saw some great matches. Here is a little peak at the final individual match between Mikael Pernfors and Frank Hervy.
What a great play!
We also had a chance to record several matches played on the ITF Seniors World Championships tournament. The fastest recorded serve during the tournament was 186km/h. All in all on the recorded matches the seniors were hitting their 1st services with an average speed of 128 km/h and their 2nd services with an average speed of 108 km/h. The 1st serve percentage on the recorded matches was 66.
It’s interesting to do a small comparison with ATP players at the Wimbledon that was played at the same time. For example in the Wimbledon final Milos Raonic hit his fastest serve with 237km/h and his average 1st serve speed on that match was 202km/h. The Wimbledon champion Andy Murray had in the final 69% of his first services in and the average speed was his second serve was 145km/h. Angelique Kerber fastest serve was 106km/h, her average 1st serve speed on that match was 92 km/h.
