Score: 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 (27 games) Since Warriorroger invited us to watch this on YouTube, I did, and I jotted down the winners. I was a little more casual with this than with the men's matches I've done, because it's never been my intention to start a whole new project on women's matches; but it's hard for me now to watch tennis matches and let the stats go unrecorded. I started counting from 4-3 in the first set, when NBC displayed the winners broken down by serve, FH, BH, and net. For what it's worth, I had the same total number of winners (service and non-service) that NBC gave for each player at 1-love in the third. And the network kept a running count of aces and Graf forehands, also in sync with what I counted. Graf had 4 aces, 4 service winners, and 1 double. Navratilova had 1 ace, 3 service winners, and 3 doubles. Two of her doubles were in the final game. Graf hit 53 winners: 22 forehands, 16 backhands, 15 at net. Navratilova hit 19 winners: 1 forehand, 4 backhands, 14 at net. So Graf had more winners at net (barely) than Navratilova. Graf's winners (non-service) by set: 21, 20, 12. Navratilova's winners (non-service) by set: 11, 5, 3. Graf's rate of non-service winners per game is 1.96. That is higher than any rate I know about for a men's match even with their aces and service winners included. Graf's rate of service and non-service winners combined is 2.26 per game. Navratilova has a rate of .70 for non-service winners, and .85 for all winners. For comparison, let's take the 2005 Wimbledon final in which Venus Williams defeated Lindsay Davenport 4-6, 7-6 (4), 9-7 (or 39 games). Williams hit 49 winners, per the NY Times. Presuming that this includes winners of every kind, that is a rate of 1.26 per game, compared to Graf's 2.26. If the Times stat includes only non-service winners, then the comparison is with Graf's 1.96. There is also the winner/error ratio. NBC displayed the winners and unforced errors at 1-love in the third. Graf had 2.88 times as many winners of all kinds as errors (49 vs. 17), Navratilova 1.75 times as many (21 vs. 12). Williams hit 29 unforced errors for the whole match, so that's a ratio of 1.69. As I said, I did this one more a little more casually than usual, so I don't have the usual detail, like the number of passing shots. And I suspect that one reason Graf has such a higher number of winners in this match is that Navratilova presented a constant target. As of 1-love in the third, per NBC, Graf had won 16 points at net, Navratilova 47. As of 1-love in the third, Graf was serving at 63%, Navratilova at 60%. I'm glad this match was uploaded, because even though I hadn't intended to count winners for any women's matches, this was one match where almost 20 years later I remembered Graf just hitting a flood of them. It's a good touchstone, and an interesting comparison with the men.
