Is this some sort of record? certainly for one tournament? In Nice he's saved 2/2 bps against Pouille, 6/6 against Mónaco, 11/11 against Coric, and (so far) 7/7 against Thiem.

This coming from a notoriously mentally unstable player :lol:

Greatest jinx of all time, within a minute he dropped serve.

Well if it is it'll stay at 26 because he just got broken at the worst possible time to lose the 2nd set.

Amazing.
I think he was aware of this streak he had. That would explain why he was laughing a bit when he finaly got broken for 5-7 today. :lol:

Even for Isner or Raonic, who save around 70% of bps, the probability of saving 26 in a row is only 0,001% (this calculation assumes that saving each bp is an independent event, which is clearly not. Because of fast surfaces, hot streaks, etc, the probability is much higher and it should have happened before, but rarely).

For Mayer, and on clay, the probability was infinitesimally small.

It's possible this is the record, but probably around 30.

If Mayer can do it on clay...
