Some interesting stats: what do you think?

Hey guys, if you haven't already seen on USopen.org, here are some interesting stats, see what you make of them:

First Serve Points Won Leaders

Rank/Player........Country..........Matches...........F irst Serve Points Won
1 L.Davenport......USA..................4........... ........121 of 150 = 81 %
2 J.Dokic.............SCG..................1........ ............37 of 47 = 79 %
3 S.Kuznetsova....RUS..................4............ ........101 of 130 = 78 %
4 A.Mauresmo......FRA..................5............ ........142 of 185 = 77 %
5 V.Zvonareva.....RUS..................4............ ........104 of 136 = 76 %
6 A.Stevenson.....USA..................1............ ..........31 of 41 = 76 %
7 M.Pierce...........FRA..................4......... ...........111 of 147 = 76 %
8 J.Vakulenko.......UKR..................2.......... ............61 of 81 = 75 %
9 M.Shaughnessy..USA.................1.............. ........18 of 24 = 75 %
10 S.Williams........USA.................5........... ..........136 of 185 = 74 %
11 A.Myskina........RUS.................2............ ...........35 of 48 = 73 %
12 N.Petrova........RUS.................4............ ..........107 of 148 = 72 %
13 S.Perry...........USA.................1........... ............53 of 74 = 72 %
14 E.Bovina..........RUS.................3........... ............93 of 130 = 72 %
15 M.Sharapova....RUS.................3.............. ........115 of 162 = 71 %
16 B.Mattek.........USA.................1............ .............34 of 48 = 71 %
17 M.Sucha.........SVK..................1............ ............48 of 68 = 71 %
18 F.Zuluaga........COL.................3............ ............83 of 118 = 70 %
19 A.Jidkova........RUS..................1........... ..............21 of 30 = 70 %
20 E.Callens.........BEL..................2.......... ...............63 of 91 = 69 %

I think it is key that Lindsay is the player left in the draw who is ranked #1 in the first serve % points won. If any matches come down to a tiebreak, I think you can be pretty certain that Lindsay will come through them safely. Also, it's a great reflection of how well Lindsay is serving!

I'll see what other interesting stats I can dig up.....

Second Serve Points Won Leaders
Rank/Player............Country.......Matches.......Seco nd Serve Points Won
1 S.Kuznetsova.........RUS.............4............ .......67 of 108 = 62 %
2 N.Petrova..............RUS.............4.......... ..........68 of 110 = 62 %
3 A.Molik..................AUS.............2........ ............25 of 41 = 61 %
4 S.Farina Elia...........ITA..............3................. ...43 of 72 = 60 %
5 A.Groenefeld..........GER.............1........... .........20 of 34 = 59 %
6 J.Capriati...............USA............5......... ...........58 of 102 = 57 %
7 V.Ruano Pascual.....ESP.............2....................1 8 of 32 = 56 %
8 M.Pierce...............FRA.............4.......... ...........50 of 89 = 56 %
9 T.Tanasugarn........THA.............1............. .........20 of 36 = 56 %
9 A.Widjaja..............INA..............1......... ............10 of 18 = 56 %
9 J.Kostanic.............CRO.............3.......... ...........40 of 72 = 56 %
12 N.Dechy..............FRA.............3............ .........22 of 40 = 55 %
13 A.Frazier.............USA.............3........... ..........38 of 71 = 54 %
14 F.Schiavone.........ITA.............4............. ........66 of 124 = 53 %
15 L.Davenport.........USA.............4............. .........47 of 89 = 53 %
16 S.Williams............USA............5............ ..........69 of 132 = 52 %
17 A.Spears.............USA............1............. ..........27 of 52 = 52 %
18 S.Obata..............JPN.............1............ ...........17 of 33 = 52 %
19 A.Haynes............USA............3.............. .........35 of 68 = 51 %
20 L.Granville...........USA.............1........... .............21 of 41 = 51 %

When Lindsay puts here second serve in, she isn't as sucessful at winning the point as say, Kuznetsoza or Petrova - who are the top two. Although Lindsay does win 53% of the points, this could be down to the fact that more often than not, Lindsay's first serve is landing in.

it's also good to see that most of her opponents didn't even get a breakpoint! her service is going so well, she's nearly unbeatable

Some other stats: Lindsay never lost a set in USOpen 1998, Wimbledon 1999 & Australian Open 2000. In Wimbledon & US Open 00 she did drop a set to reach the final.. which she lost.. she hasn't dropped a set so far in this tourny

compare the outfits:


Blue skirt, Blue & white top

she won the same warm-up tourneys in 1998..

aaaaah she MUST win!

LOL, I never thought about the outfit! I did know about the not dropping a set stat though. I'm suprised people in the press haven't picked up on that yet....

I thought Lindsay looked awesome in her red outfit but I wished she had stayed with the blue, her luck might have stayed in and she wouldn't have injured herself in practice just before the match!! Still, what will be will be, I still love you lots Linds.
