The highest 1st serve percentage you've seen?

I don't what is the record, but after 4 hours and 15 minutes and 4 sets played (5th set to come), Gonzalez has 90% first serves in Sela must be fighting sooo well out there

Re: The highest 1st serve percentage you've seen?

i noticed that and funny thing is that 2nd serve percentage is 63% meaning that he'd better hit only 1st serves

Wimbledon 2004, R128

Federer vs. Alex Bogdanovic (GBR):

1st serve %: 98%

6-3 6-3 6-0

0 aces, 0 double faults. probably not serving hard, but very impressive nonetheless. eve though it wasn't a 5 setter

Re: The highest 1st serve percentage you've seen?

What was Rafa's first serve percentage in Hamburg? Similiar, wasn't it?

Who else served close to 90% and still lost the match (All Dudi got to do is hold)

Dudi is playing wonderfully, especially at the end - And Gonzo is tired.

pim pim.

i think he played blake somwhere and didn't miss a serve in one set.

Well that is what I looked at too and it also says Bogdanovic served at 97 %. Seriously what are the chances of seeing a match with a 98% and 97% 1st serves.

I know, it's shocking. You're right that maybe they screwed it up. For exmaple some older Wimbledon matches are said to have taken 2 minutes according to their stats.

Volandri always has a good first serve percentage. Not to compensate for anything of course

Filippo VOLANDRI, Pablo ANDUJAR, Yuki BHAMBRI, Fabio FOGNINI, Thomaz BELLUCCI,
Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV
