So in 11 sets of tennis this year in Vienna he faced breakpoints in just 1 service game.... astounding. 109 in a row at one tournament is right up there with the best holding streaks of all time, even more impressive since he won the event twice during that streak. I believe Sampras still has the record of 118 straight service games held at Wimbledon from 2000-2001, and Federer had a holding streak of around 100 games from the quarters in 2003 to the quarters the following year.
