4 double faults in a row to lose game?

Has anyone hit 4 double faults in a row to lose a game?

The most i've 'managed' was 3.

I have a good serve, and unlike my darling Maria, I rarely double fault in my tennis matches. Even under pressure, especially the secondary school competitions.

Actually, today.
Went up 40-15. Then served 4 straight double faults to lose it. IT was bad. My last 4 serves (2 1st and 2 seconds) didn't even clear half the net.

Re: 4 double faults in a row to lose game?

I actually don't think I've ever served more than 1 double fault in a row However, in one of my first matches, my opponent started out with 4 double faults then he broke me and served another double fault, so that was 5 in a row for him

I lost the match 36 06 though Luckily I've improved since then.

Not me.

But about 2 weeks ago I was playing doubles and my partner did it. I pretended to laugh with him, but I really just wanted to take his head off with my racket.

Re: 4 double faults in a row to lose game?

I remember I was playing a friend once and I was like 5-0 up and was serving for the set and I hit 4 double faults in a row. I think I lost the match 7-6, 6-0 after that too.

But I'm really really bad. So bad it's not even funny.

Nah, not 4. Did two in a row today, but it was expected. I'm actually serving my second serve decently now and not just putting it on the other side of the ball at a snail's speed.

Re: 4 double faults in a row to lose game?

I did 3 in a row, but it was close to 4. I served my second serve right on the line.

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova

Re: 4 double faults in a row to lose game?

Sometimes I don't make any double fault in match but my record is 5 double faults in game . First, I made 3 for 0-40, than saved 3 break points and then again made two double faults .
