Is this a record? - Roddick's 3rd set TB streak

Something I noticed while looking at past Wimbly draws:

With his win over Schwank in the R128, Andy has gone to a TB in third set for the sixth Wimbledon match in a row.

On top of that, in 10 of his last 15 Wimbledon matches, the third set has gone to a tiebreak.

Does any other player even come close to matching such a random record?

I'm sure if you could be bothered looking there are whole heap of random records which will never be broken because they are so random and mean absolutely nothing.

yes but no need to open a thread for every ridiculous statistic, f.e. did you know that Kristian Pless when playing a match on tuesday in a challenger in European Union countries always loses his 3rd serve and has a 35% 1st service in?

was just an example, you don´t need to check it

Re: Is this a record? - Roddick's 3rd set TB streak

ok well that example might be pushing it... I don't think mine is as extreme as yours is though

and no I'm not going to check it

I will bump this if the record becomes statistically significant though

Re: Is this a record? - Roddick's 3rd set TB streak

He always gets lazy by the 3rd set. Like against Schwank he had tons of good chances to break but then his brain goes to sleep.

Indeed he very rarely wins matches at Wimby without either TBs or dropping one or two sets.

If a thread isn't about Djokovic and when he will become the GOAT and golden slam winner than the thread is worthless.

Labadze - Berrer - Junqueira

Hm yeah that has been the case for a while now. He just doesn't have the dominating mentality that would allow him to crush weaker opponents.

its also potentially bannable as we have seen with certain threads recently

Roddick does have the longest TB win streak.

Well it is a real random one but interesting nonetheless...I couldnt imagine any other players record would come close

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

...better to reign in hell than serve in heaven...
