Yeah,she had something like 25 in one match.

And wasn't there a match were the court didn't had the right length which caused some major doublefaulting from both players?I believe it was either in the B&L or Charleston.

The match was between Kremer and Hopkins. I can't believe the service line as so far from the real size!

Australian Open 1999, second round, Anna Kournikova def. Miho Saeki 1-6 6-4 10-8.
Anna served 31 double faults.
and the previous year at the Chase...didn't she have close to 30 against Seles (???)

***

Two years ago in Amelia Island the courts were measured wrong. I think between both players they had around 30 DFs.

Here's a write-up of that crazy situation!:

Stadium court service lines 3 feet short, win allowed
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press
AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. -- Anne Kremer's victory over Jennifer Hopkins in the opening round of the Bausch & Lomb Championship on Monday was allowed to stand despite taking place on a court that was improperly lined.


Kremer beat Hopkins 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 in the first match of the day on the Stadium Court of the Amelia Island Plantation facility. Kremer had 16 double faults, and Hopkins finished with 13 service infractions.


The excessive number of double faults prompted tournament officials to measure the court after the match.


It was discovered that the service court area back line was 18 feet from the net, 3 feet short of the normal distance.


Bert Evatt, head of court maintenance, accepted the blame for the improper lining of the court.


"I screwed up, I measured them wrong," he said.


WTA officials huddled after the match to discuss whether to allow the result to stand or to replay the match. Six hours later, the WTA announced that the match result would stand with Kremer as the winner.


In a statement, the WTA said that under the ITF Rules of Tennis, "An umpire's decision on matters such as court measurements shall be final, unless it is a matter permissibly appealed to the referee, in which case the referee's decision shall be final. Here, the chair umpire deemed the court to be playable and the referee deferred to that decision."


Hopkins didn't want to talk about the lining error, offering a "no comment" while waiting for the WTA ruling. Kremer wasn't available for comment.

I seem to remember another match where someone ---Kafelnikov maybe? -- kept hitting tons of shots into the net. At one point he went up to the chair and said "I think the net is one inch too high." They went and measured it and sure enough, it was one inch too high. :lol:
