Re: Most aces hit in a match (more than 30)

Is the 38 by Raonic a best of 3 set record for hardcourt?

Seems to be all grass and carpet ahead of him but I haven't looked in great detail.

No, on grass no-one served more aces in a 3-set match on the main tour. Check my blog

Re: Most aces hit in a match (more than 30)

Arthur Ashe hit 28 aces against Okker in the 1968 US Open final actually, including 16 in the first set, as I previously mentioned.

It was in a semi.

37 - Arthur Ashe (Australian Championship, now Australian Open 1967) 4 sets, defeated John Newcombe

37 - Tony Trabert (Forest Hills pro 1957) 5 sets, lost to Pancho Segura
http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...les+aces&hl=en

30 - Josef Brabenec (Davis Cup 1979) 4 sets, defeated John Antonas (It wasn't a rubber from the World Group though: Canada vs West Indies; North American Zone)

30 - Michael Tauson (Davis Cup 1988) 4 sets, defeated Emilio Sanchez
http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...+30+aces&hl=en


Edit: forgot to mention this one:

46 - Ham Richardson (Forest Hills) 5 sets, defeated Ed Kauder (Kauder 59 ace performance has been mentioned here: Most aces hit in a match (more than 30))

+ 32 DF for Richardson which seems to be a record - 25 for Kauder.

Which means 105 aces in the same match.

I don't include Challenger stats to this thread, just info about Carraz who served 50. If someone overcomes it, I will add him.

Code:
Andreas Haider-Maurer  39     2011 d. Serra
Pablo Cuevas           36     2009 d. C. Rochus (atp off. site says 33)
Kenny de Schepper      35     2011 l. to O. Rochus
Joachim Johansson      34     2004 d. Clement
John Isner             32     2008 l. to Gulbis

Andrei Medvedev        26     1993 d. P. Moraing

Re: Most aces hit in a match (more than 30)

Interesting, maybe someone knows, who holds the record for most consecutive matches with at least 10, 20, 30 aces?

From post #3 in this thread:

Three consecutive matches with at least 30 aces: Ivanisevic (Wimbledon 1992), Philippoussis (Wimbledon 2003), Isner (Washington 2007)

Rosset had 48 aces and 30 DF (all-time record, at least until the claim about Ham Richardson's USO 1955 match can be verified) in his loss to Clement, DC 2001.
Obviously, the only 30-30 match

Re: Most aces hit in a match (more than 30)

Number of aces in a match is one thing, ratio of aces/serves is another one - I guess more interesting in terms of frequency of serving aces. Generally 30 aces would be much more impressive if produced by a player in 3 sets instead of 5. Another interesting issue it is comparing number of aces & service winners combined, unfortunately service winners/unreturnable serves are extreme rarity in post-match statistics (when I make a stats-match I know how many points players got directly behind the serves...)

Joachim Johansson manufactured a "king of serve" performance in my opinion, striking 51 aces under the Melbourne sun on hardcourt, against one of the best returners in history - Andre Agassi (albeit pretty prone to receive many aces due to his inclination to play more balls off the forehand). The Swede played 149 points on his own serve in that match obtaining 34% of points thanks to aces. Below you see a percentage 'aces/serves' juxtaposition of matches with the most aces served (only Pim-Pim's match was a 4-setter, all others 5-setters):

Code:
34% - 51/149  - Joachim Johansson (Australian Open 2005 vs. Agassi)
32% - 55/169  - Ivo Karlovic      (Roland Garros 2009 vs. Hewitt)
31% - 78/250  - Ivo Karlovic      (Davis Cup 2009 vs. Stepanek)
27% - 49/178  - Richard Krajicek  (US Open 1999 vs. Kafelnikov)
25% - 50/197  - Roger Federer     (Wimbledon 2009 vs. Roddick) & 
      51/198  - Ivo Karlovic      (Wimbledon 2005 vs. Bracciali)
23% - 113/491 - John Isner        (Wimbledon 2010 vs. Mahut)
21% - 103/489 - Nicolas Mahut     (Wimbledon 2010 vs. Isner)
Placement of Pim-Pim's 51 aces vs. Agassi:



He won 50% of serve-points directly behind serves:
51 aces & 24 service winners, yet he was broken thrice losing that match 7-6 6-7 6-7 4-6...
Number of aces in sets respectively: 14, 16, 9, 12
His aces on 2nd serve: 14th, 25th, 27th, 33rd, 35th & 51st


[youtube]AiNIjvth8Qw[/youtube]

Other impressive ratios:
49% - 28/57 - Mark Philippoussis (2 sets vs. Roux in Paris '96)
47% - 16/34 - Nicolas Almagro (2 sets vs. Hajek in Valencia '07)
47% - 44/93 - Ivo Karlovic (3 sets vs. Brands in Zagreb '14)
44% - 44/98 - Mark Philippoussis (3 sets vs. B.Black in Kuala Lumpur '95)
39% - 32/82 - Ivo Karlovic (2 sets vs. Ben.Becker in Zagreb '10)
36% - 47/130 - Ivo Karlovic (4 sets vs. Tsonga at Wimbledon '09)
36% - 31/86 - Goran Ivanisevic (2 sets vs. Novak in Split '98)
