Which tennis players have the most aces: Top 10 men’s all-time list – SportsMediaz


American world number 24 John Isner on Friday broke Croatian Ivo Karlovic’s all-time record of the most aces in men’s tennis during his third-round loss against Italian Jannik Sinner at Wimbledon.

The 6’10” Isner, who turned 37 in April, surpassed Karlovic’s tally of 13,728 aces with his fifth ace in the match. He served 24 aces in all against Sinner.

While a big and powerful serve isn’t a guarantee for success, it does help in putting an opponent under pressure. Factors such as technique, technology and height play a major role in determining how good a player’s serve is and consequently, the ability to hit aces.

The ATP began record-keeping in 1991.

Here are the top 10 players with most aces in men’s tennis:-
