    Do you know any instances when the pros double fault 2x in a row? Post videos here of pros double-faulting twice in a row.

    (men's singles only please)

    I believe Djokovic did from deuce to get broken and lose the match in the 2008 Wimbledon second round against Safin

    Ivanisevic, USO 99 R64, against Carrati. Served 4 DF in a row, Carrati called the 4th good, he had two serves, and double faulted again!

    Ivanisevic outlasted Italian qualifier Cristiano Caratti 6-1, 4-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-4, winning a second match in a row on hardcourts for the first time this summer despite a rare five double faults in one game.

    The freak feat came in the last game of the third set, when the Croatian had a double fault called good by Caratti but squandered his second chance at the point with yet another double fault. (AFP)

    I think we take it for granted how few double faults the top pros throw in.

    Didn't Roddick double fault twice in a row last year at the US Open against Djokovic when serving for the 4th set? Can't remember exactly but I do know he double faulted twice in that game.
