Nadal won '08 French with 5 df's(can't seem to find one lower than that in a major in recent years)

On the other hand, his super-aggresive second serve gave him totally the command of the points (if not the point directly because of it being an unreturned second serve), so it was a good strategy for him even if he double-faulted 10 times per match or so on average.
it's not a slam but i've got roddick with 70 aces and 1 DF when winning lyon in 2005... now beat me that !
