How do you rate LUCK in Tennis?

Do you personally think LUCK plays a very important role in a tennis match or is it so slim, that it doesn't matter?

Re: How do you rate LUCK in Tennis?

There might be some matches where luck is the deciding factor but in general the better player will win the match!

That is when a weak player verus a good player. But when 2 very good players meet it doesn't apply anymore.

Don't agree. I think the luck plays a factor then. Especially if it comes to tie-break.

How many matches end in a third set tie-break?
And even if, the player who can handle his/her nerves better (is more focused ...) will win the match!

Re: How do you rate LUCK in Tennis?

For example:

In a close match one player hits more winners than the other and still loses, even though the unforced errors are at the same level. She/he won, because she didn't make the mistakes at the BIG POINTS.

Absoloubtely. I think tennis is such a great game as there are so many things that influence a game. Luck is one of these factors... so yes!

What do you mean exactly? You mean the "other" player won because he did less mistakes at the big points. So it's no luck, it's a sign of "quality" to play your best tennis at the big points. Btw: There are also "forced errors"..

Your question is if luck is "VERY IMPORTANT" in tennis! And in at least more than 95% of all matches, it's not relevant. So the question must definitely be no!

Re: How do you rate LUCK in Tennis?

Long term:
Luck has an affect for the bad side, eiter as direct bad luch : injory, or that a player does not get any good luck so money/mental reasons prevent the player to get to his potential...

Player with no money problems and good mental will only need luck to stay healthy...

There is also luck to chose the right couch, to get sponsers etc...

Short term:
Good luck in a draw can help the player get better seeding and mentaly, but it won't have much affect in the long term...
