Gilles Simon has saved 17 breakpoints in a row

Many if not most of them on 2nd serve too. 8 breakpoints saved in the final set against Querrey and 9 breakpoints saved against Tursunov in the final. Is that a new ATP record?

Re: Gilles Simon has saved 17 breakpoints in a row

That's very impressive considering he's not a big server.

As mentioned before in one of the match threads, that's partly because he throws in some change-ups in the break points and plays with more purpose.

Certainly not a new record! Blake for example saved 19 break points in the 2nd set against Federer at US Open 2003 (and lost that set)

Even without watching the matches its probably a safe assuumption to say Simple Simon's opponents clowned away 17 break points in a row.

A safe assumption. Blake and Tursey were spraying 2nd serve returns all over the place. It was pretty pathetic actually..

Re: Gilles Simon has saved 17 breakpoints in a row

Instead of praising Simon for that stat,we'd better laugh at Tursunov and Querrey for not converting them.

Fortunately ,we are a bit finished with all those MM tournaments and now,the big guns will come back in Canada.

Re: Gilles Simon has saved 17 breakpoints in a row

simon saved 2bps in the opening game vs. young

so that's 19bps in a row for now. probably more to come.

Re: Gilles Simon has saved 17 breakpoints in a row

I am sure that when Roddick, Federer and Ljubicic held serve for more than a 100+ games they saved more breakpoints.

There an only be One Nadal
