It might depend on what kind of tennis you like, but I think the best stat to measure match quality would be average number of strokes per rally.

When they put together those features of the "10 best points in a tournament" there is never an ace included. That's because aces are kind of dull. The stuff that makes the viewer gasp is the long rally with lots of crazy defense.

Give me a match with lots of long rallies over a match with lots of "winners" (including aces) any day.
