1. El Chino Rios
2. "Edo" Edmondson, 1976 AO winner
5. Aussie Pim, AO 05 R16 v Agassi
6. Not sure, but Chubby Chela's 16 in five sets against Moya at RG 03 comes close. Careless served 14 himself for an impressive combined tally of 30.
7. The Bull of the Pampas
8. El Chavalito/St. Pat
9. Rusty, I think

12. Didn't Ken Rosewall win AusO in the early 70s when he was 37 years old? I guess technically the Slams aren't ATP tournaments, but still?

I read somewhere Michael Stich has the most double faults in a match. He hit something like 25 in a long Davis Cup match against Thomas Muster.

I know Whorenikova served 34 doubles in the AO and won the match.

According to the matchstats for Todero-Marray in R1 AO Qual this year, the Brit managed 24 DFs - quite remarkable if true considering he only had 10 service games to hit them in.

2002 Halle, Grass, Q
Germany Grass Q Kafelnikov 5 7 6 3 6 4

22 double faults for Kafel against Ulihrach.


1996 Grand Slam Cup, Carpet, S
Germany Carpet S Ivanisevic 6 7 2 6 6 3 6 2 6 4

I remember this amazing match with Kafel double faulting 35 times and Goran serving 45 aces, there was nothing in this one but aces and double faults ; however lot of fun with the two becoming mads after themselves from the very beginning of the match until the end.
