    Stats for 1981 AO Final (Martina-Chris)

    '82 rate is really low for Martina, and Chris' rate actually beat hers. It's not a straight-up comparison because of course a lot of Chris' serves that didn't come back must have been Martina making errors trying to attack them, rather than forced errors. Still, has to be unusual for Chris to...

    Stats for 1983 Wimbledon F(Navratilova-Jaeger)

    Tennis Magazine (US): The computer reveals that Navratilova improved her level of aggressive play between the Wimbledon final and the U.S. Open final. Against Andrea Jaeger in the Wimbledon final, for example, she came to the net on 72 percent of the points. Against Lloyd at the U.S. Open...

    Incorrect ATP stats (a survey)

    In Sampras-Philippoussis, 1998 Wimbledon QF, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-4, ATP has Sampras facing no break points, but he did face three (and he saved them all), in a love-40 hold, per a newspaper report with its own boxscore: https://www.atptour.com/en/scores/1998/540/MS004/match-stats.

    Incorrect ATP stats (a survey)

    Here's another one like that, where one player has two more service games than his opponent; but the ATP's stats for this one are wrong. From 1998 Wimbledon, R32 So there were 36 service games (excluding the tiebreak). The ATP has only 29...

    Stats for 1987 French Open Final(Lendl-Wilander)

    Good to know, thanks. Rare to see him in the 50s. Two others in the 50s are in two boxscores I have from 1986 Cincinnati; Wilander served at 59% both against Sanchez and against Edberg.

    First Serves Under Pressure

    Nice one for Mac, and 8-6 in the fifth. And he'd just taken out Becker in straights, the previous round. Do you have Emilio's percentage?

    Longest games

    Agreed on all counts, and I've done the same myself. I thought once about doing the stats just for that one game but I guess I never did because I can't find them. Anyway, two boxscores.

    Stats for 1988 French Open 4R(Lendl-McEnroe)

    My family did not have cable TV channels back then, and neither did a friend of mine who was also a tennis nut. So we turned on our radios (!) and listened for updates, which came in every two games or so. This match was huge for us.

    Stats for 1988 French Open 4R(Lendl-McEnroe)

    This is the only stat I charted. Lendl made 5 of 10 first serves in the tiebreaks (50%). By tiebreak: 1 of 5 4 of 5 (note, he missed a first serve, then made it, when the pt. was replayed) McEnroe made 4 of 10 first serves in the tiebreaks (40%). By tiebreak: 1 of 5 3 of 5 In that opening...

    Sports Illustrated: THE CROWDS AT THE FRENCH Open found one of their own to cheer last week, but it wasn't Henri Leconte, the flaky Frenchman who reached the final. It wasn't even one of the several touristes of distinction, like men's titlist Mats Wilander or women's champion Steffi Graf, both...

    Match Stats/Report - McEnroe vs Wilander, Davis Cup quarter-final rubber, 1982

    This tie in St. Louis obviously depended on McEnroe’s victories in the singles. But it's also the only tie in McEnroe’s Davis Cup career where the U.S. won 3-2 and might have lost one of its Cups if McEnroe had not played in the doubles. In some 3-2 ties, McEnroe won the doubles but the U.S...
