Yup he beat Wilander in the third round, in four sets. HBO said he served 16 aces, though some newspapers reported 23.

Great stat by Chang; and he got broken only twice in that stretch.

Another partial one: in the last 2 sets of the '73 USO final you've got Kodes making his first serve on all 6 break points that he faced -- however he got broken on 3 of those.
