Who Has the Fastest Serve? (Bringing the Heat) says this about the fastest tennis serve:

Q: What is the fastest tennis serve on record?

Answer: Andy Roddick holds the fastest serve record at 155 mph (249.4 km/h) during a Davis Cup semi-final match against Vladimir Voltchkov in 2004. This beat his previous record of 152 mph (244 km/h) achieved earlier the same year.

Bill Tilden had a serve timed at 163.3 mph (262.8 km/h) in 1931. He holds the record for the fastest unofficial tennis serve, but it is questioned because of the limited technology, mathematical calculations and use of smaller wood racquets, at the time.
