Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

Impressive. That's a sign of mental toughness especially in matches vs guys like Ljubo or Murray who return well.

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

sampras still holds the record for most ever won though, right?

It's interesting to note that Sampras had that streak in his worst year (2000 - 2001), if he had played better he wouldn't have had to play so many tie breaks.

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

It's almost as if Verdasco knew the record was on the line and was kind enough to help Roddick towards it - that's a more plausible explanation than anything else for the game he played at 5-3 in the third.

It is a tremendous record though, with five large tiebreak scores in the course of this streak which makes the feat that much more impressive. And notably Vincenzo is the only player to win a tiebreak convincingly against Roddick this year, both Tsonga (especially) and Murray had to work incredibly hard for their wins.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Of course, that record is very safe.

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

Thanks for the stats, Voo This is an impressive turnaround from last year when Andy's TB record was atrocious.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

That is a great record. Kudos to Roddick.

And to think that only last year it was almost a certainty that he would lose every tie-break he played.

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

What was Roddick's previous best TB winning streak out of interest, Voo? And did he ever go on a particularly bad run, e.g. last year as tangy suggests?

Yeah, but sampras also had a longer career/more years compared to andy at this point, and may have played more games overall as well. I guess if someone knows the ratios those would be nice to see.

I wrote in the previous thread about this, that the tb is a great sign of mental fortitude. But its interpretation can also depend a little bit on who you are playing. If you are a Top 5 and running into tiebreaks with #50 and below, that is one thing (even if you win them) and if you are playing tbs against your rank-peers and winning them, that's a different thing.

Tsonga has won 13 tie-breaks in a row so far (including Challengers). I suppose their tie-break (20-18 to Tsonga) at Australian Open was a great experience for both players. I'd like to remind that Roddick lost also 16-18 to Karanusic (as a junior) and 14-16 to Arthurs (Roland Garros).

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

Thanks for compiling those stats

I think Roddick might have come close to breaking the record for most tiebreaks lost consecutively last year

Re: The new record of Andy Roddick

His career record is 178-104, 63%, which is better right now than Pete's.
