Most Break Points Not Taken

This may have been discussed before but i would just like to know what is the record at ATP LEVEL when a player has had a certain amount of break points and not taken one.

One that rings a bell this year is Berdych vs Blake at the Us open, Berdych was 0/20 on break points.

I wonder if anyone knows.

Watch any Andy Roddick match from late 04' til about July 06'

i think that in the '88 Wimbledon semi, Mecir was 0/22 against Edberg on break points.

Re: Most Break Points Not Taken

Nalbandian vs Verdasco at wimbledon was pretty bad, can't remember what the conversion was though.

edit: He won 1/19 breakpoints in the match

Re: Most Break Points Not Taken

Federer against Blake at the 2003 US Open was 3/25 on breakpoints, an impressive 1/20 in the second set including 8 unconverted in a single game. I know in the past he's been 5/21, 3/17, 2/14.... all those matches he lost, unsurprisingly.

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.
