List of unique records in the history of tennisLast updated on Jul 29, 2019, 09:08 pm
Tennis is one of the most followed sports across the globe.
Over the years, the sport has seen a number of male and female players dominating the circuit.
As a result, there have been some unique records scripted by top players in the sport.
And, on the same note, we take a look at five such unique records.
Roger Federer: The King of Serve
We start the list with the GOAT Roger Federer, who needs no introduction.
Amongst his great feats, he holds a unique one when he claimed successive points on serve in a match.
It happened in 2018 Wimbledon, against Lukas Lacko, where from the third set, he didn't lose a point on serve.
He won a total of 35 points on serve, a Wimbledon record.
Samuel Groth: The Serve Machine
Serve in tennis is an important element. And, if the serve turns out to be furiously fast, it is an icing on the cake.
Australia's Samuel Groth to date holds the record of the fastest serve in the history of tennis.
It happened during the 2012 Busan Challenger, when he fired a serve that was recorded at a speed of 163.4 mph (263 kph).
Sam Querrey: The Prince of Ace
Analyzing further, the ace is also a highly important element of the game.
The more the number of aces, the better the chances of staying safe.
As for the record of hitting the most consecutive aces in a match, USA's Sam Querrey holds the record, with 10 in a row.
It happened during the 2007 Indianapolis Tennis Championships, against fellow American James Blake.
Most double faults
Marc Rosset: An Unwanted Double Faulter
Committing double faults in tennis is an embarrassment.
However, it becomes irritating when it keeps on happening.
The unwanted record of the most number of double faults in a match lies with former Swiss player, Marc Rosset.
It all happened during the 1995 Wimbledon first-round match against Michael Joyce, where he committed 26 double faults.
Interestingly, he was one of Federer's hero.
Bill Scanlon: The Golden Man
Golden Set means winning a set without allowing the opponent to win a single point.
However, there is only one man who has achieved this rarest of feat, in the form of former US player Bill Scanlon.
He achieved the feat against Marcos Hocevar during the WCT Gold Coast Classic Tournament, winning, 6-2, 6-0.
Among women, Russia's Yaroslava Shvedova achieved it during 2012 Wimbledon.
