stich had 2 FH UEs, 0 BH UEs and 3 DFs - 5 UEs overall
so a total of 12 UEs in the match ..
sampras' AM = (84-12)/(84+61) = 49.66%
stich's AM = (61-12)/(84+61) = 33.8%
again, these are my own stats and not official ones ...
Great, thanks for these! I need to see this match sometime, too.
Stich did not play that badly (he actually had fewer UE's than Sampras); but he got straight-setted because Sampras played so well.
Yet it's still surprising, because Sampras said that Stich was one of his most difficult opponents.
I think when you give your UE count, your terms "FH" and "BH" include both ground strokes and net strokes?
I presume that both players came in behind all of their serves, so there cannot have been many opportunities for either player to make unforced errors with groundstrokes.
