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.....
No ... I don't think you could evenly split the points and win 6-0. It is not possible because to win each game you must win 2 more points than your opponent. By the end you must win at least 12 more points.
