    Let's say you just tuned into the match and saw the set score. Is there a way to just look at it and tell by doing math how many times one has been broken? I thought I had it narrowed down but it was wrong. Or is there no easy way without having watched and seen?

    Sorry for the stupid question but this has really been bothering me...

    6-0: 3
    6-1: 2/3
    6-2: 2
    6-3: 1/2
    6-4: 1
    Of course, if a person wins a set 6-4, it's possible that they broke more than once, but the other person broke back.

    ^ Yup, with 6-1 or 6-3, you've got to know who served first. Don't forget:

    7-5: 1
    7-6: 0 (assuming a tie-break set)
