Losses...for Stat Junkies

I did one of these at the end of last year.

Refer to
if you want a description of what everything is.

Here's this year's stats thus far:

Stats for all the players who have been in the Top 10 in 2002 (except Davenport....for obvious reasons):

2-Set Losses-------------02--03--07--07--03--03--04--07--00--02-
3-Set Losses-------------05--04--04--04--02--05--04--04--02--03-
Tiebreakers Won in Ls----00--00--00--01--00--00--00--00--00--01-
TBs Lost in Losses-------01--00--00--05--01--00--03--02--01--01-
Losses to Top 10 Players-05--04--04--08--04--06--07--04--01--04-

It's when I dropped off the highest ranked and lowest ranked opponents from their averages. It eliminates the "fluke" losses to terribly low-ranked opponents.

Monica's numbers improve by a whopping third! (Foretz, Charleston)

Also note, I included the walkovers/withdrawals in the losses. (It helps their averages.) And I know people might chew me on it but to me a walkover/withdrawal isn't any different from playing one point and retiring in a match.
