I’m bored as fuck so I’m making this dumbass thread. What are some matches were players had unusual stats for their caliber/style of play?
For example, Bedene hitting 27 aces in a 2 set match or Djokovic hitting 100 unforced errors.

Roger Federer serving 5 aces in a 5 sets match to beat Tennys Sandgren.

Ivo Karlovic serving 0 ace against Gael Monfils, somewhere on clay.
Sandgren had like 27 or somethin aces as well. You almost never see Federer get outaced like that unless he’s playing Isner or Karlovic. Perfect example of Federer having to win ugly.

I won't be able to provide the source but I remember Michael Chang hitting over 20 aces in a 3 sets match. If anyone remembers which match it was (best of 3 sets).

Personal best: Kei hitting 24 aces against Tomic in a 4 set Wimbledon match, including 3 aces from 4-5 15-40 down and 4 unreturnable total from that pt (also hit 3 aces in another service game). Tomic only hit 16 against him by comparison. He also won 13 straight TBs in a row in the 2018 season.

Federer's measly 5 aces against Sandgren also pretty astonishing (did much better when he played Djokovic in the SF).
The Raonic Isner match not going to TBs in US Open also surprised me.

Can't find it at the moment but just checked Wikipedia and read about this unusual stat: in 1995, Michael Chang reached the Australian Open semi-finals for the first time, defeated by Pete Sampras in four sets (6-7 6-3 6-4 6-4), he served 20 aces in this match, 7 more than Pete Sampras.

Probably not that shocking but I always love to bring up this stat from Madrid 2016 when Kei racked up more winners than Kyrgios despite Nick knocking off many more aces. Groundstroke wise, 37 to 16!



I've also seen a match where Kei won 100% of his first serve pts against Del Potro in a set (Washington 2017). Also won 90% of second serve pts in the first set (and 74% for the match) against Wawrinka at ATP finals London 2016.

Diego had similar stat against Berrettini at Wimbledon, shame he lost that match (72% first won, 74% second won)

I miss this match-up! And from it you can tell peak Nick Kyrgios would have been owned by peak David Ferrer.

Wilander vs leconte in the French open final 1988 where he made 97% of first serves for the entire match
