I do have roughly accurate numbers for the '97 because I once watched the whole thing and wrote down whatever match stats I could think of (I'll definitely do a thread on this match once I verify everything), for the '98 final I have nothing but the 1st-serve stats.

I know you have lots of other obscure stats at hand that I'd be interested in, so let me know if you want to exchange private messages instead of posting everything here and possibly hijacking the thread. As my contributions of sorts I have Fed winning 75.6% of his 1st-serve points (68/90) and 48.8% on 2nd (20/41) in last year's Wimby final, and winning 19/21 service games in the final and 92.44% (110/119) for the whole tournament (4/20 and 33.33% or 38/114 of return games respectively). Those numbers should not be easy to come by, if you don't have them already.

hijacking the thread? with the number of trolls in this forum, nobody will notice

so, service stats for pete, wimby 97 and 98? here


1st serve 45/76, 59%
1st serve pts won 39/45, 87%
2nd serve pts won 21/31, 68%
unreturned serves 45/76, 59%


1st serve 85/155, 55%
1st serve pts won 69/85, 81%
2nd serve pts won 44/70, 63%
unreturned serves 71/155, 46%
