On groundies and volleys we don't have a name for them, but official stats definitely make judgment calls on them, at least occasionally. So I started keeping track of them, simply by putting parentheses around the winner. For example, a Sampras forehand volley that Agassi clips with the edge of his racquet: (FHV).

Some people have boxes in which they put down check marks, but that's how I count winners. (My service stats are different).

Anyway what set did you have the lob?

(And if you can ever break down your stats by game -- when we have a discrepancy -- that would be even better, though not necessary).

I'll get back to you on the rest.
