Yes the point is that tennis scoring exaggerates differences even if my numbers are off.

I understand that, statistically speaking, there is a 2% chance of winning a set 6-0 when winning half the points.

But yes, something like 6-3 would obviously be more likely.

Let me dig up the old book I had on this and see if I can find the percentages for reference.....
