I'm positive that Nadal vs Kyrgios 2X in a row SAME scoreline in BO5 never happened before

If it has happened, it will probably be an occasion where a top player thrashed somebody twice in a row.

Borg-Vilas comes very close to matching this, btw - the same scores in the 3 sets, but not in the same order:

1975 FO final Borg bt Vilas 6-2, 6-3, 6-4
1975 Boston final Borg bt Vilas 6-3, 6-4, 6-2

Borg literally owned Vilas; even said it out loud when asked if Vilas could've won FO in '77 if he had not skipped the event! "I usually beat my good friend Guillermo!" :sneaky:

Kyrgios had a match up advantage in Wimbledon. In AO he had a disadvantage and had just played a 5 setter so it's slight progress I guess.

Nadal beat Stan at the French Open 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in their last 2 RG matchups (2013 QF and 2017 F)

It's not that rare in consistent serving. Basically a 6-4 or 7-6 set in some match-ups is expected so then it's about the multiplier.

For back to back 4 setters it's somewhere in the 1 in 120 but same order might be 1 in 600. Given the propensity for two players to meet eachother might be a 5% chance it happens once in their careers.

But that's a base. Extremes allow for higher odds. For example Karlovic.

If he's likely to take every set to tiebreak you're looking at just order but he doesn't play enough matches.

Shot in the dark, back to back matchups having identical 4 set score is a 1 in 4 year occurrence. At all levels. So servebots at 250 level.

Borg-Villas rivalry is fascinating. Their matches are quite entertaining to me. Wooden racquets, patient point constructiom and beatiful baseline game. The 1970s produced some of the most amazing tennis.
