I always look at the % of points won on first serve, and then the unforced error/winners ratio

and points won, it tells u how close the match was, cause some matches can have 6-3 6-3 scorelines and be still very very close.

I ususally look at the fastest 1st serve speed. I believe that tells which player dominated.

break point conversion

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

The fastest first serve speed is probably the least relevant stat. If you look at that all the time, players like Stevenson would look like the best player

There are three important stats:
% pts won on serve
winners/ ufe´s ratio
% breakpoints convertion.

The Sisters almost always lead at least two of these categories and that´s why they´re so good.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

winners/UFE ratio, breakpoints and conversions and the amount of first serves in.
