Has this happened before - the ball breaks the net causing the match to be suspended?

3-1 adv Del Potro in the Lacko match. Del Potro served a big first serve into the net, and then the net needs to be fixed and there is a ten-minute delay.

No, of course something like this has never happened before.

Some people forget tennis has a history of more than a hundred years...

For example during the US Open quarterfinal '79 between Tanner and Borg. it was important match because Borg was beaten for the first time after a 31-match winning streak. Tanner destroyed the tape with his powerful serve in the crucial stage of the 4th set (the match was suspended for 6 minutes).

I think something similar happened during one of Safin's matches at Wimbledon.

Players performing at the highest level over a 52-week period since I started following tennis:

Federer

Nadal Djokovic

Hewitt Roddick Murray Ferrero (Tard #28) Agassi

Kuerten Ferrer Coria Davydenko Del Potro Safin Nalbandian Ljubicic Wawrinka

Re: Has this happened before - the ball breaks the net causing the match to be suspen

The commo mentioned a match where it happened, but can't remember which.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

David Nalbandian

That was against Philippoussis in 2005, the same day on the same court (center court) was also Pim Pim against Rusedski so no wonder the net broke, will always remember that day.

I saw a video on youtube in which the served ball was stuck in clay. I think it's even more powerful...
