1st, I have this strange feeling, call it a hint, that you didn't read everything I wrote and/or understand it, so I invite you to read it again (no need to read other people's posts, I'm the only one writing anything interesting around here (*) ).
So you can hit 140km/h shots all day ?
I'd really like to see that, genuinely.
By any chance, would you be able to set up something like this :
- a tennis court
- 100 tennis balls
- a radar to show the speed of your strike
- you standing with your feet on the baseline
- a ball thrower standing 1 meter after the opposite baseline and throwing 1 ball every 2.5 seconds at 115km/h ( = average Nadal's shot speed and about average TE B1 speed), with slightly randomized height but nothing too much to not prevent you to be able to do strong shots, and randomized pattern to get the ball at +/-1 meter left/right from the center of the baseline (so you'll have to move a lil bit left/right before each shot, still standing on the baseline) (I'm just hoping that ball throwers can do that)
- you have to hit 100 balls non-stop with your forehand, either putting 95% in if you choose to aim anywhere within the limits of the court, or 85% in if you aim once at 1m of the left lane line and once 1m of the right lane line (repeated 50 times) ; if you put less than 95% or 85% in, the results are not valid
- if you actually can easily hit stronger than 140km/h, then you should do the test with that speed (up to 155km/h)
- a camera to record all your strikes with the radar in view & clearly readable, with an angle giving an idea if your strikes are in or not
- you can replace yourself by someone more fit than you, as long as he hits at least at 140km/h
I guess I'm asking too much, but I'd really love to know what strike speed a good player would produce over the course of the 100 shots. (reminder: TE PowerBaseliner with 100% stamina can hit about 20 accelerations before getting tired).
Note: this setting is still less tiring than hitting accelerations in a match where you have to keep track of your opponent, without knowing exactly what to expect from his racket before and after your strike.
About your overcharge, it's an interesting idea ; I think I already played a game with that, it may have been Roland Garros 98, it was nice enough.
It doesn't easily fit with the current preparation system (which is different from a charge system), especially as the player is not supposed to release the button before the strike, so that'd lead to heavy changes in the game.
