Question Most winners in one match

I was wondering what was the record for the number of winners in one match.

Today (Wimbledon final 2009) Federer hit 107 of them, Roddick 71.

I'm interested both in the record for one player and for two players, if someone may give me some information.

Thanks

useless old guy

Re: Most winners in one match

Winners and unforced errors stats are not kept by ATP, so it's hard to know for sure

Re: Most winners in one match

what is a winner? some say if it bounces twice on the opponent's court, it's a winner. what if the opponent is close to the ball but couldn't hit it or missed? And do service winners count as winners (like if the serve is touched by the returner but is not successfully returned?

Re: Most winners in one match

The winner is the kind of shot that isn't touched by the opponent's racquet!
A service winner is either an ace or a serve which isn't returned... some tournaments do include service winners among winners and some does only count the winners!!

VAMOS RAFA!

Re: Most winners in one match

For the reasons stated it is too difficult to count. Some Wimbledon matches in the past counted second serve return errors as winners for the server whilst RG was counting only aces of the serve as winners. That leaves such a huge space for discrepency that this stat can't really be explored to great effect.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Most winners in one match

Forehands, Backhands + volleys should only be counting as winners and inforced errors

Quite a few winners in Mahut - Isner.

Re: Most winners in one match

Other than Wimbledon, winner count usually includes aces (but not "unreturnable serves"), right?

Re: Most winners in one match

At 59-59 Isner has 449 and Mahut 428. Totally 877 winners (included serves). Undoubtedly record.

Re: Most winners in one match

Those numbers are wrong, they had some kind of bug there.
Final count is Isner 246 winners, Mahut 244, but I'm pretty sure aces aren't counted there. Including aces, that would be Isner 358, Mahut 347.

Total points won: Isner 478, Mahut 502.

Re: Most winners in one match

Most winners except aces:
Can anyone confirm the record is 70 by Gasquet in Wimbly 2007 against Roddick ?

Re: Most winners in one match

i think its safe to say isner mahut top the winners list

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God
