First Serve Percentage 100!?

I just visited the Australian Open's website and I was amazed to find out that Feliciano Lopez was leading the serve percentage statistics. It appears that in the only 5-set-match he played, he had 100% first serves in, yet he still lost the match! However, the statistics also said that his opponent, Muller, got 89% of first serves in.

So I'm wondering if this was just a mistake in statistics or did he really get all of his first serves in during the 5 sets? How would that even be possible, serving only second serves!?

No he double faulted several times

100% first serves, whole match is not a big deal.
Question is, how many were forcing serves and how many outright winners?
You can poop a semi second in any time.
As a 4.0 player, I can easily hit 100% "first" serves in and lose a match.
I'd do better getting 35% first serves in, and possibly win more matches !!

What are you talking about? Just felt like spouting crap? 100% first serves in a pro match would be crazy. Pros rarely ever go a match without double faulting. I doubt there has ever been a professional match where someone served 100%.

Rofl!!! A 4.0 is nothing to be bragging about, kid.

Because that means you'd be getting those balls shoved down your throat on every return.
