I'll donate 200 vcash to the first person who answers this question right:

------------------

Player A faces Player B in a WTA singles match (up to 3 sets).

Player A wins.

NA = number of points won by Player A at the end of the match.

NB = number of points won by Player B at the end of the match.

NB > NA

if D = NB - NA;

what can be the maximum value of D?

D can be infinite as they can be in a deuce game forever!

with a 0-6 7-6 7-6 or 7-6 0-6 7-6 it's 34 points I think

2 sets winnin 6-0 (makes the difference 48 points, the other set tiebreak (winning your games on love, losing games with 30 points, and then losing the tiebreak with 7-5 for example)

24+24+24-12-12-2-2=44
If the score is 0-6 7-6 7-6 :shrug:

But I was wrong on my first one. :(

Well it must be 58...

6-0 7-6 (5) 6-0
+24 in the first set and the third
+10 in the second...

This is nonsense as the loser can win as many points as the winner! And what about an infinite deuce game?

Ceze
May 27th, 2006, 06:07 PM
20? :shrug:

I can't figure this out. Please explain once someone gets it. :pwell if you consider A wins 0-6 7-6 7-6:

1st set: B wins all the points: 6*4=24
2nd set: B has only love games: 6*4=24 and A wins her serve at 40-30 so that's -(6*2)=-12
and in the tie-break: -2
so it's +24 (1st set) +24 -12 -2 (2n set) +24 -12 -2 (3rd set)= 44
I missed the 3rd set in my previous answer :p

It's about the difference...points even themselves out in deuce games.

borisy

44 is right but Slokid sabotaged it. I wrote the rules clearly in my first message. So noone wins anything. I'll find another question to give this 200 vcash.

SloKid
May 27th, 2006, 06:09 PM
yeah me too, I didn't count the 3rd set :lol:
I didn't take off the 2 points that are the difference in the second tb the first time.

so far I agree, but the third can he win with 6-0...
thus: 24+24-12-2+24=58

:wavey:

damnit, A wins...
