Sam Groth, a former Vida player and member of the winning┬ástate grade team at the┬áVeneto Club in 2005, dropped in before starting his practice session and meet the group. Sam this year broke the world record for the fastest ever recorded serve when he posted a 263km/h bullett in Japan. This was 12km/h faster than Andy Roddick’s previous fastest. Sam will now train in preparation for the Australian summer circuit.
