Federer is unbeatable in serving for the last two years
According to Infosys, 38-year-old Roger Fedeer currently leads the ATP Tour in terms of second serve wins between 2015-2019.
It was also the period when the “Big Three” group, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, instead dominated the top three spots of the ATP transcript. In terms of the number of winning points for serve two, no hand can surpass the Big Three during the five years from 2014 to 2019, and of which, Federer is number one.
The owner of 20 Grand Slam titles won 4,237 points out of a total of 7,229 serve points, reaching 58.61%. Poor 1%, Nadal ranked second with 57.86%, winning 4,011 out of 6,932 points. Current world number one Novak Djokovic is third with 56.92% – winning 4,407 out of 7,742 points.
Both Federer and Nadal achieved a 60% win rate on the second serve on the field, of which Federer was 60.16% and Nadal was 60.03%.
In five-year statistical comparisons (2015-2019), Infosys only counts players with at least 1,000 serves or more. The ratio of winning two serves on the ground of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic
Fourth in that period was John Isner with 56.54% winning the second serve (winning 3,754 out of 6,640 points). The latest ATP title for the US tennis player is the Hall of Fame Open 2019 championship in Newport last year, where Isner won 67 of the 114 second serves, which is 58.77%.
One of the important factors to see the importance of second serve is that returning players can return the ball to play. On average in the Australian Open 2020, the rate of first serve failure is 37%, but in the second serve, that percentage drops to 17%.
Djokovic, who won the championship in Down Under, led the Big Three in terms of serve ratio, making the opponent unable to pay success with 22% (40 of 185 points). Nadal followed by 18% (28 out of 153 points) and Federer 17% (37 out of 219 points).
Throughout his career, the head of the ATP Tour in terms of second-hand win rate is Rafael Nadal. The 33-year-old won 15,327 out of a total of 26,692 points, reaching a rate of 57.42%.
