highstest 1st serve percentage?

what's the closest a player has evergotten to a 100% 1st serve record in a match, it's a question that's been bugging me

Vika AO 2012&2013 Champion

Kvitty Wimbledon 2011 Champion, get it together for 2013!

Serena had 100% in the 2nd set of her 2001 USO semi vs Hingis. Only 82% overall for the match though.

Re: highstest 1st serve percentage?

I think Kim had some crazy statistic in a match in Hasselt 06, like 97 %. But it could be that it was just from one set, don't know for sure.

Re: highstest 1st serve percentage?

A Bondarenko has had some high %es. Probably not 100% though .

If you were a WTA player and just spun your serve in all the time it probably wouldn't be too hard if you wanted to.

Re: highstest 1st serve percentage?

Hingis had 100% first serves in for a set and a half in the 2002 Sydney final against Shaughnessy.
Li had 100% first serves in the first set in the 2007 AO 4th round against Hingis.

Re: highstest 1st serve percentage?

For 100% points won on first and second serves in one set, Golden Girl Yaroslava Shvedova probably holds/shares the record for this amazing stat

Re: highstest 1st serve percentage?

This statistic isn't always really a "good" statistic. Players with puffball serves like Errani, Niculescu etc constantly have very high 1st serve percentages. Obviously because they want to just get a first serve in to prevent their abysmal 2nd serve from being completely punished.
