IDK but I do know that Federer has a bad record
I noticed this a while back. I only remember a few times that he's missed the hawkeye, and in most of those it was either like a foot out (used for a break) or a millimeter.

Well, add one to the scoreboard. :rolleyes:
Fed's not that bad actually. Thought he was even above average but his awful ones just turned into a meme. And there was that Wimbly final. With Djoko I just notice him being right with so many close ones, even at points where a challenge is that common cause it's not a big point.
A while back, this was discussed and proven that all Big4 have similar % of correct challenges in total. Lemme google.

This is a bit older, in 2016:
David Goffin is the most successful player to have called for Hawk-Eye challenges according to a study conducted by ATP. The world no. 15 has a success rate of 44% . The study includes tennis players, who have used Hawk-Eye at least 100 times in the last 10 years.

'I did not expect to be first, but I had the impression to not have done so bad when I called a challenge,' Goffin said to RTBF. The system was started in Miami, almost a decade ago. Goffin is followed by Julien Benneteau (42.1%), and Yen-Hsun Lu (41.7%) in the list, then Nikolay Davydenko and Andreas Seppi.

As for the top players, Novak Djokovic is sixth with 35%, Roger Federer is ninth (218 won and 404 lost). Rafael Nadal 22th with 32%.

Cool. Didn't really say much about the other two, just that Djokovic seemed pretty accurate to me. Thanks for the info.

Novak broken to love his first game of the third set.

The AO is killing me already. I’m probably going to throw in the towel and go back to sleep.

Djoker-Struff 7:6(5), 6:2, 2:6, 4:1
Struff created DF at Djoker's BP and Djoker have a double-break! Djoker is now more concentrated than in 3rd set.

Well, we all said it was going to be a bit tight for Novak first round but he got through it. Hopefully he’ll be more sharp moving forward.
