M.Damm / L.Paes - J.Auckland / S.Huss 7-6(4) 7-6(4) 3-6 7-6(3), from the 2nd round today.
I think the stuff you wrote in this (http://http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=88502) earlier thread dealing with the same subject, also deserve a mention, esp. the two 21-19s in qualies.

P.S. I was lucky enough to catch that Federer-Safin TB. If I am not mistaken, it should have been shorter, Federer had a winner called out at 12-11 or so, unless I'm mixing it with something else...

Another one for you from the doubles' 2nd round:
H.Levy / R.Ram - M.Garcia / S.Prieto 7-6(0) 6-7 (4) 7-6(4) 6-7 (3) 10-8
(I'm quite happy with the outcome for obvious reasons :D )

Going over your lists, it's only the second time, singles or doubles, that a 5-setter has gone to 6-6 in each set (happened once before seven years ago at the same venue).

P.S. is there any reliable place to see the match stats, or at least its length? The official scoreboard in the tournament site has some bugs regarding this in doubles matches.

I don't want to add those two 21-19 because I know matches from qualies with tie-breaks only since 1997.
Now that these have been mentioned again, I can't help but note that you had just made a list of challengers TBs, although you have them only since 1997 (and not 1991 as the main list), so it kind of take away the main reason for not making a similar list of qualifying TBs (well, tracking Futures qualifiers seems like too much even for you, but I hope TBs from GS and other ATP qualies shouldn't be too hard to collect). ;)

Djokovic and Stepanek had a shot (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=4370658&postcount=2) at making the first "complete tie-break 5 set match" (only possible at the USO, isn't it?). But I think they were at least the first [singles match] to play first to 7 games each set (5-5 or better). Was it a first?

Possible only at UO and in "the best of five finals" of the other tournaments than Grand Slam.
Previous match with at least 7-5 in each set:
Wimbledon 1994, 4th round: Becker def. Medvedev 6-7(5) 7-5 7-6(3) 6-7(3) 7-5.

I saw yesterday one of the most intriguing tie-breaks in tennis history from Wimbledon final 1980 - B.Borg def. J.McEnroe 1-6 7-5 6-3 6-7(16) 8-6.

Borg had double match point on serve in the 4th set at 5:4 (40-15) but McEnroe saved match points with passing-shots from both angles.

Here is the progress of this famous tie-break:
1:0 McEnroe
2:1 Borg
3:2 McEnroe
4:3 Borg
5:4 Borg *
6:5 Borg
7:6 Borg * (The Swede on the ground)
8:7 McEnroe * (The American on the ground)
9:8 McEnroe
10:9 Borg
11:10 Borg * (McEnroe hit a lucky netcord :lol:)
12:11 Borg
13:12 McEnroe
14:13 McEnroe * (a minimal volley-out from comfortable position)
15:14 McEnroe
16:15 McEnroe * (nightmarish volley by BigMac)
17:16 McEnroe
and finally the end of the set after volley-error by Borg :)

Borg wasted 7 match points in this set, McEnroe converted his 7th set point.

It shouldn't be shocking because Robredo is one of the strongest mentally players on the tour. He has very good record in each "mental stats". And this year was just one tie-break to equal Roddick's record. He had won 17 tie-breaks in a row before lost to Sela at Wimbledon.

It's true but if you play well against Robredo you can't lose . This year tie breakers he played against Dabul ( 0-4 this year tie break record ), Ferreiro ( 4-4 ), Acasuso ( 4-6 ), Monaco ( 5-5 ), Cilic ( 8-11 including breaker aginst Fish ), Gaudio ( 0-2 ), Safin ( 2-8 ),2 breakers against Kohlschreiber ( 7-14 ), Fish ( 7-8 including breaker against Clic ), Gregorc ( 0-2 , Koubek ( 1-4 ).

It's not easy do win breaker against anyone ( except Clic maybe:) ), but these all players are not the gratest tie break players and they are not high ranked players ( top 10 ). It's respect score but when you know statistic of players against who played it is not impressive like it was before.

Sensational stuff out there :worship: Unfortunately I had to stop watching this match at 5:5 in the 5th but I expected 15-13 for Stepanek and more than 70 aces for Karlovic at that point, it wasn't far from the truth :)

Pity there is no tie-break in Davis Cup, it would have been first match with 5 tie-break sets. Here are previous 5-setters with tie-break in the first four sets:

Wimbledon '91: J.Eltingh - Vogel 7-6(1) 6-7(6) 7-6(5) 6-7(7) 6-3
Australian Open '93: R.Fromberg - M.Zoecke 7-6(3) 6-7(5) 7-6(3) 6-7(9) 6-3
Wimbledon '02: R.Krajicek - M.Philippoussis 6-7(2) 7-6(4) 6-7(1) 7-6(5) 6-4
Davis Cup '03: V.Hanescu - G.Lapentti 7-6(3) 6-7(5) 7-6(5) 6-7(1) 6-4
Davis Cup '03: Y.J.Kim - A.Qureshi 6-7(4) 7-6(5) 6-7(2) 7-6(5) 6-4

Stepanek's just 2nd win in long career after saving match point!!!
The possibility of 5 breakers was also the second thing (after contemplating 55->78 :lol: ) that crossed my mind. At the bottom of page 1 of this thread I mentioned there were only two 5-set doubles matches, both at Wimbledon, that went to 6-6 or higher in each set; this was the first time it has happened in singles.
Even matches with 5 sets going to 5-5 in each set are rare (page 2, posts #21-22).

Other notes :

- Cuevas is 18-8 in carreer on ATP world tour so far (69.2%, better than Djokovic and Federer :lol: : I didn't include him only because of the limit of 50 TBs played)

- in one of the first tables of this thread, it seems that Rios is missing : 132/92 (58.9%) in his whole carreer on ATP world tour according to the ATP

- many people associate "big serve" with "big success in TB" : I disagree with that (for instance, if you're better than Karlovic, maybe you can't break him but you can wait the TB to beat him on a few points), but Almagro is a good example : he has one of the best percentage of aces on the tour but is the worst in TBs. Gulbis, Chardy, Cilic, Fish are also good examples ... but you can also be a big server and be great in TBs : see Isner or Roddick.

Thanks :) I'll add him in the TB summary for all players after 2009 season. Yes, Cuevas' career record or this year's record doesn't tell a lot about his tie-break skills.

Fully agree.

BTW, I remember that Grosejan after first years of career had sensational high ratio, over 70 %. He's still good after many years with 56 %. I'd say someone with at least 60 % is very good (of course if played solid number of tie-breaks).

I also looked at inactive former year-end top-10 players since 1973 (first ATP ranking year), and their record ... also only since 1973 (ie since stats are on the ATP website) (some players were added who were near to top-10 like Srichaphan or Annacone)

I think some of them may be added on the first page list.

Here are the ones who won more than 55% of their tie-breaks :

Ashe 64,5 % (162/89)
Gomez 63,5 % (183/105)
Newcombe 63,3 % (112/65)
Sampras 62,8 % (328/194)

Rios 58,9 % (132/92)
Rosewall 58,7 % (71/50)

Okker 58,5 % (117/83)
Panatta 58,4 % (94/67)
Connors 58 % (214/155)
Nastase 57,9 % (135/98)
Gilbert 57,5 % (146/108)

Dibbs 56,1 % (110/86)
Tanner 56 % (201/158)

and here are the ones who won less than half of their tie-breaks :

E Sanchez 49,8 % (130/131)
Kuerten 49,8 % (135/136)
Chang 49,4 % (153/157)

Annacone 48,3 % (72/77)

Some interesting facts about Federer in tie-breaks :

- Federer has won 78% of the tie-breaks (18/5) he has played in grand slam finals - he had even won 86% of them (72/19) before the two ones he lost in US Open final this year. After Nadal (RG and Wim 2006, Australia 2009), Del Potro was the first one to win a TB against Federer in a slam final. This is surely a huge part of Del Potro's victory, as Federer has played and won far more tie-breaks in grand slam finals than other greats (Sampras is 8/6, McEnroe and Becker 5/3, Lendl 5/4, Connors 3/2, Agassi 3/3, Edberg 2/2, Wilander 3/5, Nadal 3/6 and ... Borg 1/8 !)

- Federer has won 77% (74/22) of the tie-breaks he's played in grand slams since Wimbledon 2003

- the two longest winning streaks in tie-breaks that Federer has had were both stopped by Djokovic in 2007 : the first one in Dubai 2007 (Federer had won 15 TB in a row since the US Open 2006, in that match Federer had a match-point in the TB and thought he had won but there was an overrule) ; the second one in Montreal final (13 in a row after his loss to Canas in Miami) where Djokovic won the two tie-breaks to win the tournament

- stats on the 17th of january 2009 made by Voo de Mar about tie-breaks with at least 14 points (main level only) : Federer had won 64% of them, which was better than all of the other top-10 players : http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=136311&highlight=tie-breaks&page=4

Robredo comes a cropper here big time compared to his TB stat, which suggets anybody mentally strong enough to beat him in a tiebreak usually gets the job done before they even get there hence the inflated stat. Nadal went to an astonishing 17-0 in 12 game sets this year.

^ I don't think so because there were 30-point tie-breaks played with two softer baselines than D'Joke and Dog. Montanes and Zib for example played a 32-point tie-break on clay, admittedly Montanes serves with intensive pace, but I can easily imagine there were longer rallies.

Litotes, the difference is a consequence of a wrong assumption. In 1988 Sampras lost 5 tie-breaks, not 8. His three additional lost tie-breaks came from Challengers (Mohr 6-7 4-6, Pereira 6-7 6-7). Challengers and lower levels aren't included to official stats.

Can't believe I was so daft, after all - it reads 0-3 in TB challengers further down the Sampras page :facepalm: Interesting, by the way. By "normal" ATP standard those challenger TBs shouldn't have been counted as they were played before 1991. I checked Nastase's page to see if stats made entirely before 1991 were correct, but his TB status is 14-6....I have no idea which 20 they count, certainly not his last 20.

I think you'll find, if you check, that Sampras' Challenger TBs did not have scorelines. Still they are counted. But for Nastase, it is correct. He has 20 TBs with scorelines - and rather a lot of them without.

I suppose it would be too much to expect ATP to show the same diligence in counting ATP TBs as they do counting Challenger TBs.....

Frequency of playing tie-breaks (notable active players):

We can always easily assume that all-serve players are more often involved in tie-breaks than other players. Before I counted it, I had known that Karlovic and Isner would have been at the top (Karlovic edges a bit playing on average 1 tie-break set per match). This stats below confirms it as well as that grinders experience tie-breaks rarely. It shouldn't be surprising that Volandri, with arguably the weakest serve among notable names, is placed at the bottom of the list. The only thing which surprised me is the fact Rochus plays tie-breaks with a bit higher frequency than Anderson, but the South African has improved his serve a lot in the last two years, so I expect when they'll have finished their careers, Anderson will be above Rochus in this department.

Tie-breaks with two changes of ends at least (before Monte Carlo 2014)

[tie-breaks '8/6' and longer...]

Below a record-list of 55 best-active & 82 non-active guys ("best" by my criteria), who have played at least 100 main-level tournaments.

I'd propose a term "standard tie-break" for most tie-breaks we witness & it's quite broad term because stretches between 7/0 & 7/5 scores. No matter whether it's 7/0 or 7/5, in both cases (and four others in between), there's only one change of ends (at 3-all, 4:2, 5:1 or 6:0). Vast majority of tie-breaks that everyone experiences over the course of his career, I'd call "standard ones".
How to call longer than standard ones? This is what I propose focusing on number of points not the time of play:

- 2 changes of ends - quite long TB (8/6... 9/7... 10/8)
- 3 changes of ends - long TB (11/9... 12/10... 13/11)
- 4 changes of ends - very long TB (14/12... 15/13... 16/14)
- 5 changes of ends - marathon TB (17/15... 18/16... 19/17)
- 6 changes of ends - record TB
(within 44 years since the tie-break inception, there hasn't been an official TB longer than 20/18)

* In parentheses: long, very long, marathon & record TBs respectively...

Great work as always, Voo :worship:

No surprise Karlovic played more than anyone else. A bit surprising to see Djokovic on 50,8%, though.

Karlovic at 500 is shameful, though him being involved in many long ones is NID

Montanes is such a mental GOAT

Surprised Bellucci is so high and Djokovic so low
