These two Wikipedia webpages state that Karlovic served 55 aces in the Bracciali match and thus holds the record.

Ivo Karlovic nearly got an extra four aces added to the Wimbledon record of 51 he set last week. The chair umpire's scorecard for the first-round match showed Karlovic had 55 aces against Daniele Bracciali.
Postmatch statistics credited Karlovic with 51. Tournament statisticians reviewed a tape of the match and concluded that total was accurate, Wimbledon spokesman Johnny Perkins said.
Karlovic's total of 51 is still a tournament record and ties the ATP Tour record set by Joachim Johansson at this year's Australian Open. — AP

I think that served 30 aces in one match is also a good achievement. Some big server like Mirnyi or Dent have never crossed 30 aces in one match so far.


Classic S&Vs usually hit less aces because they can't simply go for flat bombs, as the returns come pretty heavy at them too. They play more angled serves, aiming to dislocate the returner for the volley. ;)

You're right but anyway it's strange that Mirnyi has never served at least 30 aces :shrug: He could serve 20 aces in two sets against Salunier (7-5 6-4), so he should serve more than 30 aces in five-setters at least a couple times. Mirnyi played many five-setters on the hard/grass courts... Strangely enough his personal-best come from three set match against Wessels in San Jose - 29 aces (Mirnyi won 6-7 7-6 6-3).

Mirnyi seems to hit more well-places serves toward the end of the matches, instead of going for the aces. Don't ask me why that, I just feel this pattern more often than not. He certainly has the capability of doing that, he's a great server.

Almost "yes", you probably read this on my webpage ;) But it was inversely - Ivanisevic (Davis Cup '95 vs. Paes), Kafelnikov (CGSC '96 vs. Ivanisevic).
27 double faults in each example. These matches were "the best of five". Probably record holder "the best of three" is Coria who served 23 DF in winning match (!) against Kiefer 6-7 6-4 6-3.

It is strange because Rosset many times served more than 20 aces in three-sets. He played many four and five-setters so he should cross 30 aces at least a couple times.

Anyone remembers if the Pim-Pim - Agassi match was played with the roof closed? It's a bit weird that the HC record comes on Rebound Ace rather than on faster surfaces like Decoturf or indoor Greenset.

As for carpet, the record would probably be higher if we had more best-of-five set matches on the surface.

Guccione - Bastl was played indoors, but it's still amazing that he set the record in only three sets. On outdoor clay, the record is from Roddick against Chang in Roland Garros 2001 (37).

The Monfils match is a very strange one. Only lasted 94 minutes, played late with fading light. Johansson only won 14% of return points. Monfils only served 15 games plus one tie-break, with 49 first serves and 29 second serves, for an average of almost one ace in every two serves! Johansson has had weak vision since being hit by a ball last year, maybe that has something to do with it.

Yes, I was shocked that Monfils had fired so many aces in only 15 games. There are/were some players who always receive many aces (Zib, Enqvist, Agassi etc.) but not T.Johansson :shrug: Maybe we are the witness of a new Monfils and since that match against ToJo he will be the new King of aces? ;)

2) I'm glad I've asked the 2nd one though - fun thread, esp. that Becker video. Although I agree that Medvedev should have at least put something on the last one, but probably he was too beat up mentally by then... And I wouldn't have imagined someone losing a service game without his opponent even needing to hit a ball.
3) Using Google I found one (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=8481) in this forum. It's untidy, to say the least, but it's better than nothing.

Just making sure: all those aces and double fault marks are only "most since 1991" and not necessarily all-time records, due to lack of information from previous years?

American teenager Sam Querrey is believed to have set an Open Era record for most consecutive aces during a dramatic three-set quarterfinal win over James Blake at the Indianapolis Tennis Championships Saturday.
Querrey fired 10 consecutive aces and a total of 34 in the match that featured no service breaks.
Querrey, 19, began his streak of aces with his 10th ace of the first set on his final service point of the tie-break. The 6' 6'' Californian then served out the second and fourth games of the second set to love with four straight aces in each game. (The first ace of his first service game in the second set came on a second serve.)
Querrey opened the sixth game with an ace, his 10th in a row. He double faulted away the next point, but hit another ace to wind up hitting 11 aces on 12 straight service points.

Thanks, good work. It's strange to see Sampras and Goran so low down the list (barely in the top 40).
Speed guns in the 90s didn't clock the speed at the contact point, but several feet closer to the net.

Goran and Sampras would be clocking 140s regularly in Getronics guns. Heck, Goran, even 150?

Who knows :(

But in the exo against Courier, Sampras clocked a 136 mph serve. Even in his mid-late 30s. I'm sure he could serve 140s easily in his prime. Becker as well, his fastest clocked serve was 135. Ditto with Krajicek.

Apparently Ivo hit 41 aces today vs Lee.

Here's some random stats I found over at ESPN:

Just the facts
by: James Martin, TENNIS.com
posted: Wednesday, October 3, 2007

• In Memphis in February, Tommy Haas won the title -- which included a shellacking of Andy Roddick in the final -- without facing a break point in five matches. It's one thing to capture a title without losing serve; Ivan Ljubicic was the last player to do that, in Vienna in 2006. But Haas is the first player to win a title without facing a break point since the ATP started keeping match statistics in 1991.

• In Indianapolis this summer, American Sam Querrey guaranteed that no matter what else he does, or doesn't do, he would always be an impressive footnote in tennis lore. Against James Blake in the quarterfinals, the lumbering Californian blasted 10 straight aces. These weren't "service winners," folks, where the player gets some graphite or string on the ball. Clean aces. The ATP believes it to be a record, but come on? It's got to be a record.

• Just a week after Querrey served Blake off the court, 6-foot-9 American John Isner accomplished an unprecedented feat: In Washington, D.C., he won five straight matches in third-set tiebreakers. His victims were Tim Henman, Benjamin Becker, Wayne Odesnik, Haas and Gael Monfils. In the final, Isner lost to Roddick in two sets, the last one (you guessed it) in a breaker. Live by the serve…. Isner also hit a non-Grand Slam tournament record 144 aces in the tournament.

Dancevic def. Wessels 6-1 6-7(7) 7-6(6) in Stockholm

35 aces for Dancevic

Dancevic makes the charts, and probably the most aces in a best-of-three match this year.

The match was also notable for Dancevic choking a 6-1 lead in the second set tie-break.

I'm quite sure that the stats from the ATP site come directly from the chair umpires' scorecards or nowadays PDAs and other electronic handheld devices. One would think that a good umpire should have a certain edge (very close to the action, paying more attention to the action with all his senses) over sometimes more disinterested or distracted people operating the live scoreboards or collecting the stats for TV purposes at the bigger tournaments. But that's only my theory and it also doesn't matter much for the chair umpire either whether to give an ace for the server or not if he is not totally sure if the ball was barely touched or just not anymore (main thing is he gives the point to the right player).

Well statistics we have on the atp site are taking directly from the umpires. Some umpires (Layhani for instance) count aces when the ball hit the frame of the raqcuet.(Karlovic hit 12 aces against Maximo Gonzalez, not 15).
Statistics we saw on the IBM sites are from IBM "employee" although the stats on the atp website are still from the umpire scorecard.
So taking the lower amount of aces between the two could be a smart idea although i know instance where it's wrong, Karlovic was credited 28 aces against Agassi by the umpire, the correct number is 30 (I have the DVD), umpire surely more focused with announcing the score may have forgotten a couple of aces.

I hope it's clarifying the situation. Tennis isn't baseball they don't care much about statistics.

I saw the 5th set of the Scott Warner versus Matt Anger match in the Wimbledon qualifiers in 1989 which Warner eventually won 28-26. I only saw the 5th set but I would say in that set alone Warner must have served 40 aces. He didn't have a great deal else to his game other than a big flat serve. There couldn't have been any stats for that match because I would hazard a guess that given there were 4 other sets in that match Warner probably totalled 70 aces or more, this could easily be an underestimate; I can remember several games where he hit 3 aces in a row. Anger would have not hit anywhere near as many aces as he was more of an exceptional first volleyer and Warner's return game was pretty bad. One thing is for sure I will never forget watching the surreal nature of that occasion and hearing the umpire call the score after each game!

I'm not that sure if that stat is really true but if it ever happened,isn't it scary?? hitting more than 30 aces in a match would be horrible IMO...not even mention that amount!!

I should clarify that I meant that I estimated that Warner probably hit 70 aces in the match, not 110! This is guesswork on my part. If I was a betting man I would say it was more likely to have been more than 70 than less, for sure it was more than 54. The previous round Warner had beaten Markus Zoecke 3-6, 7-6, 10-8, I guess that was just a warm up for him! The Warner/Anger match finished in fading light on one of the longest days of the year and there wouldn't have been much more play possible if Anger hadn't been broken in that final game.

No problem Mashamaniac. I go to Wimbledon qualifying every year. The place has gone downhill now they have built the National tennis centre there. That match from 89 was played on the main court there in those days. Those courts are all gone now and the place has lost a lot of its charm.

Unmentioned here is what according to tennis historian Bud Collins have been the all-time record up to the past weekend:
Hamilton (Ham) Richardson d. Edward (Ed) Kauder 6-2 3-6 9-11 10-8 6-0 (US Open 1955 R1). Kauder served 59 aces and lost, as usual with ace records.
A few more details: Match lasted about 2:30h. Kauder held 5 match points including three on his serve at 7-6 40-0 in the 4th set just as his right leg started cramping, and he could barely move in the final set.
Richardson was a top-10 player, twice a member of a US Davis Cup winning team, a semifinalist both at US Open and Wimbledon and twice a USO doubles champion. Kauder was an unknown, his greatest achievement was probably making the 3rd round in 1953, and it would have been a huge upset had he won. He's more known nowadays as the man who raised the legendary Olympic swimmer Dara Torres.
Incidentally, they played just a month prior to this match in what would be now considered a US Open series tournament, with Richardson winning another thriller, 6-3 3-6 15-13.

Unrelated notes:
The few lines describing Karlovic record match, aces by set and all, add a lot. :yeah:

If I'm not mistaking Marc Rosset hit 34 aces, defeating Jordi Arrese in the final of the Olympics in 1992 (he seems to be the first to do this on clay)[5 sets].

When Kevin Curren defeated Connors in Wimbledon 1983, he hit 33 aces. Connors also survived 30 aces from Noah to defeat him in Boca West 1986 (both 4 sets).

Probably the chair umpire forgot one...

Same with Karlovic in 2005:

"The chair umpire's scorecard for the first-round match showed Karlovic had 55 aces against Daniele Bracciali.

Postmatch statistics credited Karlovic with 51. Tournament statisticians reviewed a tape of the match and concluded that total was accurate, Wimbledon spokesman Johnny Perkins said." Source (http://www.hindu.com/2005/07/01/stories/2005070102632100.htm)

Could you please do it the other way around, i.e. counting for the players the times they watched 30+ aces passing by them?
It would be interesting.

That is a very interesting stat...thanks for compiling those numbers Infinity :wavey:

Can this be the Grand Slam with most aces ever?

Already more than all the other Grand Slams since AO 2009, but I don't know what the record is/was. Possibly a Wimbledon tournament when the grass were faster.

Don't know if they've already been mentioned (they're quite famous, I think) but I've found some oldies (pre 1991):

59 - Ed Kauder (US Championship 1955) 5 sets, lost to Ham Richardson [2-6, 6-3, 11-9, 8-10, 0-6] [according to Bud Collins, was the record, until Karlovic broke it with 78]
42 - John Feaver (Wimbledon 1976] 5 sets, lost to John Newcombe [3-6, 6-3, 9-8, 4-6, 4-6] [record at Wimbledon until Goran broke it; tie-break at 8-All in those days ??]

My favourite is this one:

30 - Ellsworth Vines [Wimbledon 1932] 3 sets, defeated Bunny Austin [6/4 6/2 6/0 !!!!!!!!]
30 aces in 12 service games. 2.5 aces per game. It should be close to the Philippoussis/Black match as far as the ace/serve ratio is concerned. I know Vines had one of the best serves of his time but what the hell happened to Bunny Austin !!

I brought details about the Kauder match just two pages back (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=9137627&postcount=206).
Haven't heard of the other ones. Interesting, especially the Vines match :eek:
Assuming he served less then 67 points in those 12 games, his ace/serve ratio is better than Philippoussis'. Also if that stat is verified, it would be very strange if he didn't have a few more 30+ ace matches in his career.

Most tournaments had TBs at 8-8 since their implementation in the early '70s until 1979.

Sorry Archer, I didn't remember your post.:sad:
And thanks for the info on tie-breaks.;)

About Vines, the info I could find is on the Internet but there are at least half a dozen sources that mention it, so I can safely say that it is correct.;) He sure must have some more. I'm also pretty sure that Tanner hit 40+ in one match but when and how many exactly ???
And I have read somewhere that Curren did better in Wimby 1985 than his 33 against Connors 1983. Is that possible?

Re-reading the early pages of this thread, I realize that the Curren and Vines performances were actually previously mentioned. :p

Still amazed at the fact that Curren hit 33 aces against Connors in 1983 with a Kramer Prostaff, so old-school type of wooden racket, with a small head size, which he still had in the 1984 Australian Open final.


Roscoe Tanner hit 29 aces at the 1977 New South Wales Open final in Sydney and gave Teacher a lesson 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-7, 6-3

Gerald Patterson hit 29 aces and made ... 29 double faults at the Australian Championship final in 1927, defeating Jack Hawkes 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, 18-16, 6-3 (close to Rosset's DF record :p)

Splitting the list in 2 : 1991-2000 and 2001-2010 (since this is now end of decade ;))

We can notice this:

1991-2000 50+ aces/match 0 occurrence
2001-2010 50+ 7

1991-2000 40+ 10
2001-2010 40+ 36

1991-2000 35+ 31
2001-2010 35+ 74

1991-2000 30+ 100
2001-2010 30+ 245

Last decade was from 2000-2009. 2010 was the first year of this one.

The Christian era started in year 1, there are no year 0. So the 201st decade started in 2001 and ended yesterday.

By the way, Arthur Ashe hit 16 aces in the 1st set of the US Open final in 1968. I would be surprised if he hit less than 14 in the 4 other sets.

Here are 15 of the 16 ones:

I had a long debate with some user (I don't remember his/her name) about this topic. I count tennis decades from 0 to 9, it simplifies using sentences like "in the 90's" when you can exclude some events which happened in 2000, etc. :)

The other thing, I don't know anything about Jesus Christ playing tennis so we can forget about Christianity in tennis terms ;)

Just to clear it up for you:The absence of a year 0 leads to some confusion concerning the boundaries of longer decimal intervals, such as decades and centuries. For example, each decade begins with a year ending in 1, not 0. The third millennium of the Gregorian calendar began on 1 January 2001, rather than the widely celebrated 1 January 2000. Likewise, the 20th century began on 1 January 1901.

This rule results from the fact that the Gregorian calendar begins with a year 1 instead of 0. Cardinal and ordinal numbering of years is therefore identical: The year 10 is the tenth year of the calendar and the end of the first decade. The year 11 is the first year of the second decade, and so on. In spite of this rule, years ending in 0, rather than 1, are commonly perceived as marking the beginning of a new decade, century, or millennium.

If the Gregorian calendar had begun with a year 0 as its first year, then the year 10 would have been the 11th year of the calendar and the first year of the second decade. Similarly, the year 2000 would have been the 2,001st year of the calendar, therefore the actual first year of the 21st century and the third millennium.
...but it doesn't matter that much, your table makes sense anyways;)

It's funny to know that it's been 10 years since the last time someone hit 48 aces! Ivo hit +35 aces for the 24th time in his career and that's a hell of an acheievement...
