  • Top seed Novak Djokovic has not dropped serve (30 straight holds) and has faced just 3 break points in 6 sets. He faces Jeremy Chardy who he beat here two years ago in the first round. Chardy has not taken a set from Djokovic in 6 previous meetings. The biggest statistical difference between them is on return of 2nd serve – a Djokovic strength (57% points won returning 2nd serves compared to 46% won for Chardy through two rounds).
  • Tommy Haas has also reached the 3rd round without dropping serve (32 straight holds) and has faced 4 break points. Feliciano Lopez, who plays Haas next, has also not lost a service game (22 holds) and has gone one step further by not even facing a break point in his two victories (his 2nd round lasted just short of two sets as Mathieu retired trailing 5‐1 in the 2nd set).
  • 6’8” Kevin Anderson and 6’5” Tomas Berdych meet in a 3rd round battle of big serves. Each has lost serve only once in 6 sets. Anderson leads the players left in the tournament with 55% unreturned serves including 43 aces. He’s lost a total of 25 points on serve in 29 service games. Berdych has had 43% unreturned serves and has lost 33 points in his 30 service games. Berdych has never lost to Anderson (8‐0 head to head), but this will be their first grass court encounter.
  • Richard Gasquet vs. Bernard Tomic – both players held 35 of 41 service games through two rounds. Tomic has been more consistent on 1st serve – 76% in play to just 62% for Gasquet. On return of serve Gasquet is the more consistent (80% returns in play leads all players remaining in the draw), Tomic has only put 64% of his returns back. Gasquet has broken serve 14 times in two rounds, Tomic just 7 times.
