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.
