Is it possible at the ATP level to have 0 UEs in a match? And especially, has it ever been done at a Grand Slam?

Generally u gotta be better than Federer to win a match at ATP level without conceding any UE.

It has been achieved for sure.
Not 100% sure, but I remember Giraldo being flawless vs. Robredo in Melbourne this year.

On the other hand, it's often unclear what is forced and what is unforced.

Sometimes the stats at the AO can be wrong. No offence to him but its hard to believe Giraldo was flawless :lol:

Yup, Girlaldo was officially flawless in his win against Robredo in the AO.

I remember Hewitt having 0 UEs in a match about 8 years back or so.

Why Giraldo isn't top 10 then?
:rolleyes:

I remember Gonzalez at AO 2007 against Haas (I think). One of the best performances from a player I have ever seen. Everything Gonzo touched turned to gold.
Barely made an UE and you know Gonzo isn't exactly a pusher. :cool:

The Colombian coca dealers don't let him. It's truly a sad story...

42 winners to 3 UEs I think it was. Amazing performance... :worship: that forehand just couldn't miss in that match.

Nadal's had some pretty low turnouts.. I think I've seen him hit 3 at Madrid last year..

Then six in that GS final against Federer

Apemant- That was an amazing performance. Gonzo was playing the tennis of his life that day.

very possible few yrs ago with 2 serve and volleyers, probably happened quite alot each season esp with both players coming in behind 2nd serves.

now no chance.

Hard to beleive :haha:


Probably Coria had 0 UE when he peaked.

Well.. zero UE isn't exactly a synonym for playing world class tennis. It means you play very low risk, which is only possible when your opponent is so bad that it's enough most of the time to wait for the error instead of going for the winner. So it's more a proof for how bad Robredo was that day than for how brilliant Giraldo was.

McEnroe had 3 in the 1984 Wimbledon final.

What about Flo Mayer's 2nd round match at last AO? When I watched statistics at official site - it was 0 UE. But of course I'm not sure if it's not a mistake

French doubles veterans Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra are into the men's doubles final at Australian Open 2008 after defeating Jeff Coetzee and Wesley Moodie in their semi-final in straight sets. The No.7 seeds took 94 minutes to win the match 6-3 7-6 (11-9). South Africans Coetzee and Moodie converted just one less break point than the eventual winners, and made no unforced errors during the match.

Only the stats from the show courts were correct this AO. On the other courts just aces and double faults were correct.

Winners = aces x 2
UEs = DFs x 2

I'm guessing it's been done in matches where an opponent had to retire near the beginning.

I remember Nadal hitting almost no unforced errors in one of his FO finals against Federer (not 2009). I think he hit a few in the first set but went through a period of almost two sets where he didn't make a single UE.

The unforced error stat is the most unreliable one in tennis. It is very subjective. WIth proper training it should be pretty consistent but it's definitely not a stat you can rely on like aces or break point conversion.

Wow. You asking makes me want to write one right now:). Unfortunately I've got quite a few other commitments at the moment including work and creating a new website for a friend (not tennis related) so I'm not sure if I'll get around to it in the near future. I'll try to make sure the stats stay up to date though.

I think Ducky also only had about 3 UEs in his devastating performance against the mighty Fish at the Aussie open QF in 07.
