Here are stats from the 18-16 tiebreak that Borg and McEnroe played at Wimbledon, as I've counted them. Corrections and comments sought. On the left I have the score, with McEnroe's point total always listed first. The score is in bold when the point goes against serve (a "mini-break"). Then I list who the server was, whether the point followed a first or second serve, whether the server came in behind his serve (marked as "SV"), whether either player made an approach, whether the point ended on a winner or error, and the stroke used on the last shot. 0-0 Mac 2nd, SV, overhead winner 1-0 Borg 1st, SV, return BH error 1-1 Borg 2nd, Mac BH error 1-2 Mac 1st, SV, volley FH winner 2-2 Mac 1st, SV, return BH error 3-2 Borg 1st, SV, Mac BH error when drawn in 3-3 Borg 1st, SV, return BH error 3-4 Mac 1st, SV, return BH error 4-4 Mac 1st, SV, volley FH error 4-5 Borg 1st, SV, Mac BH winner when drawn in 5-5 Borg 2nd, approach, Mac FH error 5-6 Mac 2nd, SV, volley FH winner 6-6 Mac 1st, SV, Borg BH winner 6-7 Borg 1st, SV, volley BH error 7-7 Borg 1st, SV, retreats and later approaches again, Mac BH winner 8-7 Mac 1st, SV, return FH winner 8-8 Mac 1st, SV, volley BH winner 9-8 Borg 1st, SV, volley BH winner 9-9 Borg 1st, SV, return BH error 9-10 Mac 1st, SV, return BH error 10-10 Mac 2nd, SV, volley FH error 10-11 Borg 2nd, Mac BH letcord winner on approach 11-11 Borg 1st, SV, Mac FH error 11-12 Mac 2nd, SV, volley BH winner 12-12 Mac 2nd, SV, volley FH winner 13-12 Borg 1st, SV, Mac BH error 13-13 Borg 1st, SV, volley BH error 14-13 Mac 1st, SV, volley FH error 14-14 Mac 1st, SV, volley FH drop winner 15-14 Borg 1st, SV, return BH error 15-15 Borg 1st, SV, Mac FH winner 16-15 Mac 1st, SV, volley BH error 16-16 Mac 2nd, SV, return FH error 17-16 Borg 1st, SV, volley FH drop error There were 13 winners and 21 errors. McEnroe made 10 of the winners: 1 on the forehand, 2 on the backhand, 3 on the FH volley, 3 on the BH volley, 1 on the overhead. Borg made 3 of the winners: 1 on the forehand (on the return), 1 on the backhand, 0 on the FH volley, 1 on the BH volley. McEnroe made 14 of the errors: 3 on the forehand, 7 on the backhand (four on the return), 3 on the FH volley, 1 on the BH volley. Borg made 7 of the errors: 1 on the forehand (on the return), 3 on the backhand (all on the return), 1 on the FH volley, 2 on the BH volley. Each man served 17 times. Borg served at 82%, McEnroe at 65%. On first serve, McEnroe won 6 of 11 points (or 55%), Borg 8 of 14 (or 57%). On second serve, McEnroe won 5 of 6 points, Borg 2 of 3. Of the 34 points, there were 13 mini-breaks, or points going against serve. McEnroe won 7, Borg 6. McEnroe, then, won 11 of 17 points on serve (or 65%), Borg 10 of 17 (or 59%). There were many times in the tiebreak when one man had one more mini-break to his credit than the other. The mini-break at 16-17 was no different in that sense; it put McEnroe up by one mini-break; but unlike the others, it ended the tiebreak. This happened because all the previous mini-breaks had occurred when the server was ahead by one point or tied with his opponent. The mini-break at 16-17 was the first to occur when the server was down by one point. McEnroe came in behind his serve every time – 11 times on first serve and 6 times on second serve. He approached the net twice (with a 1-1 record) on points started by Borg’s serve, if we don't count one time when his approach hit the tape and dribbled over. Borg came in behind all 14 of his first serves and stayed back on all 3 of his second serves (though he did approach the net later on one of those three points). McEnroe was at the net 19 times, if we don’t include his approach that turned into a netcord dribbler (since McEnroe never made it to the service line). Of these he won 11 (or 58%). Borg was at the net 15 times (if we count as one time the point at 7-7 when he retrieved a lob and came in again later). Of these he won 9 (or 60%). Neither man served an ace or a double. Borg saved 6 set points in the tiebreak, McEnroe 5 match points.
