Shot Tolerance

So how many balls are you willing to hit to win a point?  As many as Borg and Vilas?

FYI, I estimate their average ball speed in the 50 – 55 mph range.  Different era, but how many of our junior players hit the ball better than Borg and Vilas?  For those of you at high-altitude, keep in mind that for an equivalent acceptance window you'd have to keep your ball speeds in the 45 – 50 mph range.  That feels darn slow if you're any good.  But can you hit fifty or more balls in a row, stress free, hitting harder than that?
