Aw, I was hoping I could tell the great story of when Venus served for the match against Elena in Miami '04 that she hit four double faults to hand the game away, but I guess not. :sad:

The first time I played tennis I hit three double faults in my first ever service game, then just tapped something over the net. I lost the point anyway. :sad:

i only usualy df when up 30-0 or 40-0 cus i get too confident. i usualy kick my 2nd serve or slice it so its pretty safe.

Dementieva is an expert when i comes to DFs so i'm sure at least one person in this world did it.

I basically DFed an entire match away once because I popped my shoulder out of place the night before. :o

Well, I remember the match that I got totally frustrated cos I hit only 5 first services in during the whole match and I actually lost the opening service game with 4 df's. Mental problems as always :o But the scoreline was not that so bad, I focused on breaking the serve of my opponent, but eventually I lost like 2-6 4-6 :P

Never seen a woman do this but I remember Guillermo Coria doing this in 2006.

I will bet any money that is how ELENA started off.

I guess I have. Then realised that chess is more my thing.

I double faulted on my opponent's match point a few years ago at state tournaments... and that made me feel pretty bad.

I've served up 8 stinkers in a row a time or two.:o

I've also served up 4 aces in a row on a rare day!

That's the way my serve goes-LOL


In the late 1950s there was a Brazilian woman by the name of Amorin who served doubles for over an entire SET at Wimbledon! She served 17 doubles faults in a row.:help:

I was serving to stay in the match. 3 straight DFs. Then, I served 4 straight aces and my opponent, in complete shock, barely touched the last won. I was never able to serve that good again. :lol:

It was my first match ever, and yeah... :tape: :lol: I at least did better in my second match later that day, but there's a reason why I've only ever played two actual matches. :rolls:

I'm like Dementieva, horrible serve but I'll kill you with my groundies. :lol:

I used to always start of a singles match with 4 straight dfs and then I would win 6-1, 6-0. :lol:

I did the exact opposite. Serve 3 aces in one game and also served 3 double faults... :help: the last one to lose the match.

no, When things start to go wrong (0-30) i slow my first serve to my second and go for the center of the box to make sure things like that dont happen....

I double fault sets away all the time. :p

If I'm losing I just start swinging out, lots of winners, lots of aces but double faults are the price you pay. :shrug:

:lol: I played yesterday against my dad and I served 27 DFs in a 26 62 57 match :help:
the very first service game in the match went to my dad because of 4 DFs in a row by me :p

I'm fairly certain that in her first service game of the Miami final against Serena a few years back, Elena D hit 4 double faults in a row. Does anyone else remember that?

Why is that funny? Ever heard of experience?

:shrug:


To answer the question, I hardly ever fault at all, so rarely double fault. And so no, not for an entire game. I'm working on serving to the opponent's backhand now; doing a decent job of getting it there on both sides.

i was facing matchpoint. it was a doubles match and in the end i decided to get the serve in and then try and tube a forehand straight at the guy at the net. unfortunately my partner hit a volley wide, robbing me of the opportunity

Ugh, thats the hardest to take at the end. Well, i hope you guys get to have a rematch. Have your doubles partner practice his volleys! :lol::p
