thanks for posting. I admit, I'm not great at tracking this stat. Usually I only notice a long streak when it begins a set(then I go back & see if they ended the previous set with a streak)

If they have a long streak in the middle of a long set, I'm less likely to see it or bother counting.

I would imagine Martina had a long streak at some point, do you know what her highest 1st serve pts won % was in matches we did?

That Chang one is pretty surprising, I don't recall that match as being close at any point.

I wonder if Stich had a long streak vs Sampras at '93 Masters, think he served 7 straight aces at one point.

Federer vs Lopez at '07 USO is another possible long streak, since he won 35 straight points on serve.

Limpinhitter 04-18-2012 11:45 AM

It's interesting to see Agassi up there twice. I think his serve has been very underrated.

We only have that stat for one of her matches -- 79% in the 1987 W semi vs Evert.

She had streaks of 12 and 15 in that match.

That streak occurred during the third set which went to 7-6. He won his last 19 points on 1st serve, starting with the last point of the second set.

Chang's success on 1st serve for the match was actually a little higher than Sampras' (86% vs 85%).

Perhaps indicative of how well Chang returned.

Goran had streaks of 17 & 15 vs Sampras at '95 Wimbledon.

I took that stat in several of her matches. '85 USO F, '86 W F, '81 AO F, '82 AO F, '81 USO F, '84 AO SF

had 80% 1st serve pts won in the '84 USO final.

Had a brain cramp there. Yup, that's the highest one in that group.

can confirm he had a streak of 26 on 1st serve.

djokovicgonzalez2010 04-24-2012 10:29 AM

The Davydenko one is wrong, I think
I think Davydenko served 100% IN, not won 100% on 1st serve

pc1 04-24-2012 11:30 AM

Actually does anyone have record of most consecutive times in holding serve? I believe Sampras did it more than 100 times in a row at Wimbledon.

Moose Malloy 04-24-2012 11:44 AM

^Sampras' longest streak was 97 games at '97 Wimbledon.

Wayne Arthurs had a streak of 111 at '99 Wimbledon(but it included qualifying matches)

Thanks Moose. Do you or anyone else know of any records for consecutive hold over a period of time?

Yeah I heard that wrong. Found this by Federer: "In Doha when I played him, he hit 27 out of 27 first serves into the court." (http://www.nj.com/sports/index.ssf/2...rer_seren.html)

I haven't noted any streaks for Fed, maybe others can provide some.

Moose and I have plenty of streaks from older matches because we did all the stats for those matches ourselves. We've rarely done service stats for matches in the Federer era, because nowadays most service stats are available online (though streaks of points on 1st serve are not usually provided).

Post #7 has one.

pc1 04-25-2012 02:24 PM

Obviously when Bill Scanlon won his Golden set he had to have won at least 12 consecutive points on serve.

Moose Malloy 05-08-2012 10:17 AM

Raonic was 27/27 on 1st serve vs Nalbandian in Madrid today

piece 05-09-2012 06:44 PM

44 by Raonic against Federer R2. Madrid 2012

Moose Malloy 05-09-2012 07:08 PM

^it was 17 straight vs Federer. 44 consecutive over the 2 matches(Nalbandian & Federer)

krosero 05-09-2012 07:26 PM

Good stuff, guys, keep it coming.

Looks like the streaks by Borg and Raonic are the longest unbroken streaks on the list (by 'unbroken' I mean the streak was still alive when the match ended).
