David Goffin is the most successful player to have called for Hawk-Eye challenges according to a study conducted by ATP. The world no. 15 has a success rate of 44% . The study includes tennis players, who have used Hawk-Eye at least 100 times in the last 10 years.
'I did not expect to be first, but I had the impression to not have done so bad when I called a challenge,' Goffin said to RTBF. The system was started in Miami, almost a decade ago. Goffin is followed by Julien Benneteau (42.1%), and Yen-Hsun Lu (41.7%) in the list, then Nikolay Davydenko and Andreas Seppi.
As for the top players, Novak Djokovic is sixth with 35%, Roger Federer is ninth (218 won and 404 lost). Rafael Nadal 22th with 32%.
The fact that Roger is ninth is a little bit surprising because when he calls for an Hawk-eye challenge, majority of the times he is wrong.
