Troicki, even though he probably never plays that much tiebreaks. He sucks at everything.

yes but you also need to take into account the general suckiness of the player: cilic is undoubtedly much more of a mug than fish in general, his level of play doesn't drop THAT much in the TB.
Fish however...

Re: who's the greatest tie break mug?

I don't think I can remember a more horrible TB than what Fish showed tonight. He couldn't even keep the ball in play. I mean Nadal was just rolling 80 mph 2nd serve towards Fish' FH and Mardy was missing FH after FH.

Re: who's the greatest tie break mug?

Fish's career final set tie-break record is 18-13 which places him above most of guys in this stats.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: who's the greatest tie break mug?

btw, last year i compiled the career tiebreak stats for all active players with at least 90 tiebreaks played in their careers.

Records in tiebreaks for active players

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic
