Default Incorrect stats

In all of these matches the ATP has counted aces and double-faults twice.

- For Sampras-Stich, 1992 Wimbledon quarterfinal, ABMK has Sampras leading 83-62 in total points. The ATP would have 84-61 if they subtracted aces and df’s once.

- For Lendl-Connors, 1992 USO, R64, I have Lendl leading in total points by 111-80, which is what the ATP would have they subtracted aces and df’s once from their stats.

- For Edberg-Krajicek, 1992 USO, R16, the New York Times had Edberg leading 181-169 in total points. The ATP figures drop to 179-167 (from a tie of 193-193) if the ATP’s aces and double-faults are subtracted once. Note also that the Times had Edberg serving 13 double-faults (compared to the ATP’s 11) and Krajicek serving 13 aces (compared to the ATP’s 15).

- For Sampras-Becker, 1993 Wimbledon semifinal, the ATP has Sampras leading 130-113 in total points, which comes out to 107-93 if the aces and double-faults are subtracted once. SLICE SERVE ACE has Sampras leading 107-92.

- For Sampras-Courier, 1993 Wimbledon final, the ATP has Sampras leading 163-135 in total points, but if aces and double-faults are subtracted once the lead is 135-120, right in line with SLICE SERVE ACE's count.

- For Sampras-Pioline, 1993 U.S. Open final, a boxscore in the Baltimore Sun has Sampras leading in total points by 97-75, which is what the ATP would have if they subtracted aces and df’s once.

- For Yzaga-Sampras, 1994 U.S. Open, R16, a boxscore in the Orlando Sentinel has Yzaga leading 166-161 in total points, same as the ATP if the aces and df's are subtracted once.

- For Becker-Agassi, 1995 Wimbledon SF, I have Becker leading 151-47 in total points, same as the ATP if aces and df’s are subtracted once.

- For Sampras-Becker, 1995 W final, I have Sampras leading 138-108 in total points, same as the ATP if their aces and doubles are subtracted once. Also, the ATP gave Becker 16 df’s, one more than he had in my count and in the Washington Post’s.

- For Krajicek-Sampras, 1996 Wimbledon quarterfinal, Wimbledon.org has Krajicek leading 116-101 in total points. The ATP has 114-99 if aces and df’s are subtracted once. Also, the ATP reports that Krajicek faced 6 break points, but the New York Times reported 7 (confirmed in my own count).

- For Sampras-Chang, 1996 USO final, a boxscore in the Spartanburg Herald Journal has Sampras leading in total points by 94-76, which the ATP also has if aces and double-faults are subtracted once.

- For Sampras-Henman, 1998 Wimbledon semifinal, the ATP reports a total of 136 points served by Sampras, but SLICE SERVE ACE counted only 114. The ATP has the same number if Sampras’ 15 aces and 7 df’s are subtracted once.

- For Sampras-Ivanisevic, 1998 Wimbledon final, SLICE SERVE ACE reports 155 points served by Sampras, which is what the ATP would have if they subtracted Sampras’ 11 aces and 8 df’s once.
