That's what you get for being "an all-serve player"

With pretty decent database to 1998. There's possibility that some player lost more matches of this kind in the 70's or 80's, in the 90's rather not.

Ljubicic wasted a double match point on serve against Ferreira, don't know about his other matches in 2002.

Isner wasted only 1 of 13 match points this year on serve, it happened in the match against Fish in the Atlanta final.

Another Isner stat: 7 of his 19 defeats this season were 3rd set TBs(and one was a 7-9 5th loss)...so 8 of his 19 losses were either holding a match point or losing in a FS TB lol

Cool stats

Re: Isner & Ljubicic: the most match point(s) up defeats within a season (six)

federer managed to put some amazing choking efforts in that department last season. where does he rank?

Indian Wells: lost to Baghdatis 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (4) - 3 MP missed.

Miami: lost to Berdych 6-4, 6-7(4), 7-6(6) - 1 MP missed on his own serve.

US Open: lost to Djokovic 5-7 6-1 5-7 6-2 7-5 - 2 MP missed on Djokovic's serve.

Paris: lost to Monfils 6-7, 7-6, 7-6 - 5 MP missed (all on Monfils' second serves).


all in all, 11 lost match points in 4 defeats

Re: Isner & Ljubicic: the most match point(s) up defeats within a season (six)

real bad luck Isner

come on man, you miss biggest chance

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

He wasn't going to beat Federer exhausted anyway. Would have lost something like 7-6 6-4 probably.

Amazing stat. In the case of Ljubicic the struggles of 2002 to close out matches was a prelude to the best years of his career where he became an OLY medalist, Davis Cup hero and top 5 player. I wonder if Isner can also achieve similarly in the next 2-3 years. But thanks for posting this very interesting information Voo.
