In all these, the ATP appears to have counted aces and df's twice.

- For Ivanisevic-Edberg, 1992 Wimbledon quarterfinal, Moose Malloy counted 316 points in the match; the ATP has 315 if aces and dfs are subtracted once from their figures for Total Points Won.

- For Agassi-Rafter, 1995 AO, R16, I have Agassi leading in total points by 82-53, and so does the ATP if aces and dfs are subtracted once.

- For Philippoussis-Sampras, 1996 Australian Open, R32, I have Philippoussis leading in total points by 119-109, and so does the ATP if they dont count their aces and dfs twice.

- For Kafelnikov-Sampras, 1996 Roland Garros SF, I have Kafelnikov leading in total points by 105-71, and so does the ATP if they dont count their aces and dfs twice but note that they have two fewer Kafelnikov aces and two fewer Sampras double-faults than I do.

- For Washington-Radulescu, 1996 Wimbledon quarterfinal, the Boston Globe has Washington leading in total points by 185-182, and so does the ATP if aces and dfs are subtracted once.

- For Rafter-Rusedski, 1997 USO final, a boxscore in the Hartford Courant has Rafter leading in total points by 127-106; the ATP has the same if their aces and dfs are subtracted once.

Rafter Rusedski
First-serve pct. 62 60
Winners 49 31
Aces 7 9
Unforced errors 23 26
Double faults 6 4
Break-point conv. 6-17 3-9
Pct. 1st-serve pts 82 63
Net approaches 68-95 54-100
Pct. 2nd-serve pts 46 51
Total points won 127 106

- For Philippoussis-Moya, 1998 U.S. Open semifinal, the New York Times has Philippoussis winning 63 of 74 points on first serve. The ATP has 83 of 94, which looks as if they counted nearly all of Marks aces twice (the Times and the ATP agree that he had 21 aces).

- For Rafter-Sampras, 1998 USO semifinal, I have Rafter leading in overall points by 152-138. The ATP has Rafter leading by 153-135, if the aces and dfs are subtracted once.
