Australian Open '06 Review

I know, it's a bit late. But it took me a while to process all the statistics. Finally it's finished.

Just a few facts:

- Amélie Mauresmo played 762 points and won 443 points.

- 2 players won more points: Justine Henin-Hardenne (478/870) and Kim Clijsters (462/863)

- France won the most Prize Money (Women's Singles), 1 472 120 AUD exactly (11 players). Russia won 966 835 AUD (18 players) and Belgium won 915 000 AUD (2 players).

- Svetlana Kuznetsova served the most aces in one match (10).

- Maret Ani, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova double faulted 12 times in one match.

- Samantha Stosur came 63 times to the net against Sybille Bammer.

- Amélie Mauresmo, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters and Maria Sharapova didn't convert a breakpoint faster than the other players.

- But they had more breakpoints (8,07% vs 5,87%).

- Their opponents had less breakpoints (3,94% vs 6,34%) and it was more difficult to convert them (38,19% vs 49,86%).

- Amélie Mauresmo, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters and Maria Sharapova didn't come more to the net than the other players, but they won the points at the net faster (73,28% vs 64,90%)

- They didn't have a higher first service percentage, they didn't produce more aces and less double faults.

- Against a top player it's more difficult to produce a winner, but you don't produce more unforced errors.

- Against a top player it's more difficult to produce an ace (1% vs 3%), but a top player doesn't affect the first service percentage or the number of double faults.

You find this and a lot more here
