He joins Ivan and Roger as the only players to win a tournament without dropping serve this year.

Don't forget Aussie Pim in Marseille. Federer does stand out from that list as the only non-huge server, although he still gets plenty of aces and cheap points on serve too.

there is nothing cheap about a ability of getting points on serve, its a skill.

But that was the best punning nickname ever. :sad: And more importantly, I actually managed to come up with it first! :p

"Cheap points on serve" is a standard commentating phrase, all it means is that physically you don't have to exert a lot of energy to win the point, because the serve does it for you instantly. Nothing derogatory is implied.

Don't worry Jerry, you and I both know that it is very cheap when a certain webbed individual starts practising it. ;)

uh... you might want to check back on the Lleyton forum. We were using it there before anyone else. :p :p :p :p

But in answer to the question of this thread.

Yes, Andy loosed his serve on his opponents quite successfully. :P

:mad: I came up with it independently then, that I swear. Last year Chloe had to prove to Deb that I made first use of Fumigator before she did... if only I could have been similarly quick off the mark here.

When one types with my degree of eloquence, occasional wrist cramps are sadly inevitable.

Joins them? didn't he do that the week before the Canadian Open.

Yeah, the movement of his serve was really loose. If it had been tight, then he would had made a couple of double faults, like Coria uses to do in Davis Cup matches(sorry I couldn't resist).

I just assumed because they wouldn't shut up about how his FS% was over 90 for the tournament. I probably saw that match too.

Is he the only player this year to win a tournament with a FS% over 90? That's something he can be proud of.

wait what? No way did Andy ever serve over 90% first serves for a whole tourney.

or do you mean over 90% of first serve POINTS?

Pim Pim isn't hooking up with Jaslyn any more? I guess he got caught serving a "loose" woman.

Yeah if we don't count DC because it's not an ATP tourney.......he has held serve for 81 straight games.

Oh, almost forgot about one with "Aussie Pim" being out so long and out of mind.
