Re: Has anyone ever double faulted a game away ??

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

Re: Has anyone ever double faulted a game away ??

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.

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

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