Watching Serena serve so incredibly well against Stosur with 20 aces, in all four corners of the service box, deuce and ad, David Mercer said he doesn't remember seeing a woman serve 20 aces in two sets. In fact, one game had six aces in it.

So I was wondering, which matches have there been over the years where a player has served a great amount of aces. Now what would be a good cut off point? Let's say 15 aces or more in a match :D

Didn't Krajicek just have like 17 aces a few weeks ago in one of the tournaments she's played? :confused: Pretty sure that was a 3 set match though..

I think Rena made more aces in her match againts Pova in Wimbledon a few years ago.

I could've sworn some local hit like, 25 aces back in 2002 Australia Season.

Of course 20 aces is more impressive in two sets than a few more in a three setter.

In a 2 set match? Even then there's so many factors (numerous deuces, TBs, etc) that the only meaningful stat would be aces/number of serves.

Maybe Petrova has hit somewhere near that tally but for 2 sets it's unreal!

So . why are tennis sets so vague? Like I posted above, the only meaningful ace stat is as a fraction of serves made. Comparing aces made in a 6-1, 6-1 match with those in a 7-6, 7-6 match is ludicrous. As is comparing aces in a 6-4, 6-4 match that had a total of 12 deuce points with a 6-4, 6-4 match in which there were none. Yet tennis has this vague, meaningless approach to stats in almost every area. In fact, it might be the sport that lacks the most in the area of stats.

It was a 4-6 6-3 6-4 win for Kaia.

The thread wanted to know who's hit the most aces in one match. There they are. If you want to go back somewhere to figure out "percentages of serves" then by all means.

:haha: I wasn't suggesting that you - or anyone else here - make meaningful stats. The ITF, WTA and ATP should be seeing to that. Just like the NFL, NBA and MLB do.

I actually created a thread like this like 2 years ago and somebody answered me that Myskina once hit 36 aces in a match :help:

Since girls aren't playing five sets matches it's sure that they will never be even close to Isner's record ;)

They could go into an epic 3 set match at a slam though. :eek:

Hopman cup 2012 vs Jarmilla Gajdosova : 6-0 6-0 and 12 aces.......2 aces per service games.

From that point of view, most surprising one would be Serena's Wimbledon 2010 3rd round.
She hit 19 aces in 6-0, 7-5 win against Cibulkova, in which she hit only 43 serves.
Service ace ratio is: 19/43=44%
I remember Karlovic hit around 35% aces of his serves in his best days.
Serena exceeded him :worship::eek:

that should be about 50%

Serena served 19 aces against Sharapova at the 4th round in Wimbledon 2010. Throughout her entire career I have never seen Serena serve as well as she did in that match, especially taking into consideration how well Maria reads and returns everyone's serve.
