He had 58 unforced errors to Chesnokov’s 35, and led 17-15 in “active points won.” I'd never seen that last phrase before. Googling it, I've found it being used to mean all points won by hitting a winner (not an ace) combined with shots that force the opponent into an error. That combined category is similar to the term "Aggressive Points." But the network's "active points won" are too low for that definition; and they don't correspond to anything on my sheet or to anything else that I can make out.
