Arthurs with 111 straight holds is the record. He almost broke it this year when he got to 109 but was broken by the master of returning, Mr Agassi.

The last guy was Monfils who broke him to start the match at Metz finals.

I remember that Mardy Fish went on a serving tear in 03', right up until the u.s. open. I think it was in the 70s but that was a while ago, i may be wrong. Anyway, Ljub's stat is a very impressive one

Federer also had a lot of serve games won in a row in 2004 from Halle (108 I think) and Wimbledon and again this year from the TMC, Doha and early AO.

Re: Ivan Ljubicic has held serve 74 straight times

At the US open, he didn't lose a single point during his service games around 80 times in a row if I remember correctly. I think it was the match before Gasquet.
That was impressive as well.

It makes 20 love games in a row. Is it for real ?

Said like this I realize that I have exagerated a bit. I was more 2 sets in a row, one with a tie break.

Re: Ivan Ljubicic has held serve 74 straight times

Jerry, that steak is getting a bit overdone with the number of times you bring it up.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
