SAP work's on 3 tier arch.

Read take's lesser time than select single why because read statement happens n application layer whereas select single will go to the DB table to fetch data here where condition is important based on which indexes will be used , so if the where cluase contains fields other than key and indexes fields it would take much longer time to fetch.

Note : before doing read binary search sort the itab.
