World number one is against vaccination programs and does not change his opinion in the face of the new Coronavirus
It is expected from top players like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer to instantly react after suffering a break in order to level the score. But is it always like that? Let’s breakdown who are the best players to fight back in situations like this.
With no surprise, the World No.2 Novak Djokovic is the best to do it. The Serbian is known for immediately breaking back after losing his own service game. He has a 38.20% of returning the favor to the opposition in the season of 2019. Djokovic was broken 89 times and proceeded to break back 34.
Rafa Nadal, as Djokovic, is famous for being able to recover immediately after letting his service game slip by his hands. With a fierceless mentality, the Spaniard was broken only 66 times this year, but won his opponent’s service games 24 times right after. He comes 2nd with a 36.36%.
This is where it starts to get interesting. Kei Nishikori comes in 3rd place with a 32.71%, a significantly dip from the first two. We can clearly see a pattern on who’s the most successful returning the break, as the players with solid groundstrokes come more often on top than the ones who rely on their service. He was broke 107 times, completing the comeback in the the next game on 35 occasions.
A surprising name on this list, but this just shows how Andrey Rublev’s 2019 season went by. The Russian cemented himself as one of the most promising players for the next decade, winning an ATP title on the way. He suffered a break for 112 times, breaking back immediately in 35. His season finished with a 31.25%, the 4th best.

For the amount of slack Fognini receives for his attitude, he certainly seems to fight back when he loses his service game. Dipping below the 30% mark, he had a 27.92 percentage of breaking back the opposition when things don’t go well in his serve. In 51 matches played, he was broken 154 times, coming back strong right after it for 43 occasions.
