I'm pretty sure one of Isner/Mahut holds that record from the match at Wimbledon. Not certain though.

Ivo Karlovic has a record of 129. Not sure if it is the longest.

AM is currently 5 staight matches without dropping serve. He should break the record from here.

Wayne Arthurs had the record not too many years ago (2005, I believe), at 109, so I don't think anyone is better than Karlovic.

He is only on 60, so he will have to win the tournament (or lose 6-7, 6-7) and then get a few matches in US Open if he wants to beat 129.

Lol, Andy Murray doesn't have God-level serve like Karlovic. At best he'll be broken by Djokovic in the semi-final of cincy.

It's still impressive that he did 60 beating Nole and Federer

Re: Longest streak without dropping a service game?

I think back to the game at 6-2 2-0* in Olympic final where Federer has about four hundred thousand (rough estimate) break points.

Either Murray did very well to save them all, or Federer gifted him that hold, depending on one's perspective.

That would be another fun record to know, who has saved the most break points between two breaks? I think the record is below 400 000, but I really have no clue who might have this.
