Someone suggested to make a Wozniacki statistics thread, so here it is! You can post anything here, whether it is official statistics or your own work. Serve stats, Win/loss, ranking, match stats, etc. It doesn't matter whether you found it in a blog, in a magazine, at the SEWTA homepage, or just saw it on your tv screen. Just post it.

Wozniacki has only played one Grand slam in 2011, so don't read too much into those 2011 figures! Apart from that, the stats include all of Wozniackis grand slam matches except for 2008 for which I don't have complete stats. See my remark about this and a few other issues below. All stats are my own calculations but all figures are taken from the officiel match stats reports (once) available at the official grand slam sites like wimbledon.org etc.
A few important remarks:

1. Wozniacki played 14 Grand slam matches in 2008 but I only have full stats for 10 of those matches because she often played on smaller courts in 2008 where, say, winners and UE stats were not gathered. And I only have serve speed stats from 8 of her 14 matches in 2008 (no rader equipment on the smaller courts!).

2. Wozniacki's average serve speeds from 2008 may seem remarkably high, but the reason, I believe, is that there are serve measurements from all of her three French open matches, and only from five other GS matches that year. And since FO by far is the tournament where she has the fastest serves, her average speeds will be affected in an overly positive way.

3. A few stats in the table are presented as averages per match (for instance aces per match), but this is not an entirely useful approach. I'll explain why: Sometimes a player may play an almost infinetely long match - as was the case with the Isner/Mahut match in the men's singles at Wimbledon 2010. Both players hit more than 200 winners in that match, which would obviosly affect their overall 'winners per match' stats for 2010 in an unrealistic way! On other occasions players may play extremely short matches - like when Venus retired after 1 game in the 3rd round at Australian Open 2011. The best way to present the stats, therefore - in order to make them comparable from season to season - is to calculate them in respect to points played instead of matches played. Or even better: Aces as percentage per serve; DF's as percentage per serve (or as percentage per 2nd serve!); Winners as percentage per point played (or per point won!); UE's as percentage per point played (or even better: per point lost!). It's even possible to enhance and improve this suggested method to get an even better comparison, but maybe I'll come back to that. The table above will do for now.

4. The somewhat unusual statistic called "Risk of being broken" percentage is an estimate of how often a serve is broken. If a player has been serving 100 games, for instance, and has been broken 30 times, then her 'Risk of being broken' is 30 % (= 'games broken'/'games served' *100). It's not a statistic I've seen anywhere before, but it was suggested by another user here on tennisforum ("SamR03A"), and I found it quite clever and liked it!

Thanks. Really good thread and post.

And yes - I've also often thought that when they publish things like Aces and matches played - those players who have had long matches get more chances to serve more Aces like you say.

That risk of being broken stat. Well it just felt in that last match I watched against Na from when she got broken after being 40-0 up that the risk was 100%. I know it wasn't quite - but that's what it felt to me. I see overall that it's up from last year and about the same as 2 years ago. I reckon that last match increased it though. I'd like to see that go down.

Nice work, angliru. Of course as you pointed out the stats for 2011 are only for one slam but I would definitely like to see that % of second serves won be higher, at least over 50%.

terjw I agree completely about it seeming that Caroline % of being broken was 100%. When she was unable to win that one match point that she had I got a terrible feeling in my stomach and when she was broken twice to lose that second set I figured that she was done. It was frustrating because she was able to break Na Li so if she had been able to hold her serve she could have won that third set. Obviously no one is more aware of that than Caroline so she must realise that she needs to do better in the future and hopefully she will.

The Wta refers to "risk of being broken" as service games won, just fyi. :)

Feb 3rd, 2011, 09:10 AM
It's actually the reverse (ie. service games lost), which means a lower percentage is better. :)

This another angliru stats post, posted it so it didn't get lost in the rubble further down.

July 2005
Wozniacki's first pro tournament (Cincinatti)


February 2006 - into top 1000!
An impressive performance at her 3rd pro tournament (Memphis) lifted Caro from well outside top 1000 into a position of approx. #461! Caro defeated K. Brandi and A. Harkleroad before losing to Sofia Arvidsson in QF. Arvidsson went on to win the tournament.


July 2007 - into top 100!
Caro progressed to 2nd round in Wimbledon - her 2nd GS tournament. Caro's performance lifted her from #103 to #88 in the rankings.


January 2008 - into top 50
Caro progressed to the 4th round in AO, which lifted her from # 64 to #45!


August 2008 - into top 20
Caro's second WTA title - in New Haven (unseeded!) - lifted her to #18 in the rankings.


May 2009 - into top 10!
Caro was runner up in Madrid (lost to Safina) and finally got the #10 spot in the rankings.


September 2009 - into top 5
Progressed to the final in the US open which lifted her to #6 in the rankings. A week later, Caro got the #5 spot when Kuznetsova fell from #4 to #6 after losing her points from Tokyo 2008.


February 2010 - #3!
Progressing to 4th round at AO (one round further than in 2009, when she lost to Dokic in 3rd) lifted Caro to #3 in the rankings.


March 2010 - #2!
Runner Up at Indian Wells lifted Caro to #2 in the world.


May 2010 - #3
Injuries and a poor performance in Madrid caused Caro to drop to #3.


June 2010 - #4
Wozniacki is not able to defend her 2009 Eastbourne title and drops to #4 in the rankings.


July 2010 - #3
Wozniacki reaches 4th round at Wimbledon which is equal to her 2009 performance. But Caro still rises to #3 in the world since Venus Williams has a poor Wimbledon and drops to #4.


August 2010 - #2
Caro is back at her career best #2 because Jankovic was unable to defend her 2009 title at Cincinnati.


October 2010 - #1
Serena Williams has not played a tournament since Wimbledon, so when Caro reached the QF at Beijing she overtook Serena's position as the new World No. 1. Caroline eventually won at Beijing. Prior to Beijing Caro has had two terrific months with tournament wins at Copenhagen, Montreal, New Haven, and Tokyo - and a SF at US Open!

Below is a graph of Caro's ranking progression compared with A. Radwanska's and Azarenka's rankings.

(EDIT: The reason I'm comparing Wozniacki with Azarenka and A. Radwanska is that I consider these three women the most talented player of the years 1989-1990. They all won Junior Grand slams (Vika and Aga two each), and at the year end Junior rankings 2005 they were ranked 1 (Vika), 2 (Aga), and 4 (Caro). More important though is that these are the only players of their generation who have been ranked in the top 10 (apart from the unfortunate and now retired Vaidisova). Because there are so many similarities between Aga, Caro, and Vika, it's obvious to compare them.

I like them all, and it's not my aim to prove who's better or more talented. They're all extremely talented, at no statistics can or should be used to prove othewise! But their careers may progress differently which the graph might indicate).

http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/454/wozradazaranking4.png

The graph is based upon the published ranking positions in Notes & Netcords from SEWTA's homepage. Those lists, of course, includes only top 100 rankings. The ranking positions outside of top 100 are based on the listed rankings in the player's h2h activies - also from SEWTA's homepage.

I started the first 2 threads to keep track of her schedual in the "olden days" before Team Wozniacki posted the schedual at the season start, but they + the newer have a whole lot of info on points, money, games played etc mainly there so I can see what happened "last year" when looking at the next tournament.

Great.

I've added yet another a statistics in my post #2 in the thread:

2008 2009 2010 2011

Serve points won % 60.5 58.5 58.5 59.2

It's often discussed whether a high 1st serve percentage and a lower "winning on first serve percentage" is preferable to a lower 1st serve percentage and a higher "winning on first serve percentage". The "serve points won" stats is the best way to determine this, as it shows the sum of 1st and 2nd serves won as a percentage of the total amount of serves.

Maybe I'll ad more stats in the future. Most of the data is already in the spreadsheet, so it's only a matter of writing a proper function to calculate just about any imaginable stats!

I meant that it was essentially dealing with the same idea you were: how often a player is broken. :)
Yes, that is true.

Year-end #1
Wozniacki is also the youngest year-end #1 since Hingis in 2000. Of the 36 year-end #1's in the open era, only 7 have been younger than Caroline (Graf twice, Seles twice, and Hingis three times). This is quite remarkable considering the changes in the age-eligibility rules.


Teenagers in the top 10
Wozniacki is the last WTA player who became a top 10 player as a teenager - at an age of 18 years, 10 months, 7 days. She achieved this 18th of May 2009. There had been 19 new teenagers in the top 10 in previous 11 years (which means a new teenager every 7th month) but noone since Wozniacki.


My last age-related statistic for now is regarding the age of the Grand slam finalists:

http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/1752/agegsfinalists.png

The average age of the last 22 Grand slam finalists is 26½ years! The only finalists under 23 years of age since Wimbledon 2008 are Safina (22 years and 9 months at AO 2009, and Wozniacki 19 years and 2 months at UO 2009).

Someone posted career win/loss ratio vs. top 10 players in the statistics forum. There are just over 100 players in the original list (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=428698). Here are the results for the present top 10 players:

Venus Williams 111 - 74 0.600
Kim Clijsters 81 - 58 0.583
Caroline Wozniacki 19 - 26 0.422
Na Li 22 - 34 0.393
Victoria Azarenka 18 - 28 0.391
Jelena Jankovic 34 - 55 0.382
Agnieszka Radwanska 12 - 31 0.279
Vera Zvonareva 26 - 68 0.277
Francesca Schiavone 25 - 72 0.258
Samantha Stosur 12 - 38 0.240


Caroline is actually doing quite well. The problem for her with a statistic like this is that she's still very young, and has not has a lot of seasons to make up for her first few "not so good" seasons. Her stats are very lopsided:

Wozniacki 2006-2008 4 - 14 0.222
Wozniacki 2009-2011 15 - 12 0.556

The same can be said about other younger players like for instance Azarenka, who was 5-13 (0.278) until 2008, and 13-28 since then (0.464). Venus, by the way, had exactly the same career stats as Caro after 18 matches vs. top 10 players: 4 wins and 14 losses, and I don't think there's any evidence that Caro was particular bad in this respect early in her career (Ivanovic was 5-13, and Sharapova, who has some of the best overall stats against top 10 players, was 0-8 before she got her first win).

Could someone make a running update of the 16 tournaments making up Caro's ranking points?
Angliru, maybe you could include it in the first thread post so it's always easily accessible.

Feb 14th, 2011, 08:58 AM
Yeah, but then it would be my responsibility to keep the post updated, which would not be a very reliable solution ;)

We could also just use the existing thread called Caroline's Ranking Breakdown (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=346035)?

But maybe I could make some sort of index in the first post in this thread with liks to other relevant posts and threads (and perhaps add something like "index in the first post" to the thread title)?

Grand slam W/L career stats
I just realized that the only players who have better stats than Caro are a few of those who have won slams! It's quite remarkable that noone else has better stats, because I'd assume experience would be an important factor towards good GS stats.

Yes, I know it. Great stuff.

Caro's Winning Streaks (excluding ITF, Fed cup, qualies):

W-L
14-0 2010, Montreal, New Haven, US Open
11-0 2009, New Haven, US Open
11-0 2010, Tokyo, Beijing, Doha
9-0 2010, Ponte vedra Beach, Charleston
8-0 2008, New Haven, US Open
8-0 2009, Eastbourne, Wimbledon
8-0 2009, Ponte vedra Beach, Charleston
7-0 2008, Stockholm, Olympics

Current streak (before SF at Doha, 2011): 7-0 (Dubai, Doha). 10-0 if Fed Cup is included.


Good streaks (including losses)

25-1 Montreal -> Doha, 2010
This streak began at Montreal, continued at New Haven, through US Open, Tokyo, Beijing, and ended at Doha, when Wozniacki won her first match (against Dementieva) before losing her 2nd (against Stosur). Caro's only loss during this streak was aginst Zvonareva in the US Open Semi final. Caro beat fourteen top 20 players in this quite impressive streak, including Zvonareva twice, and Dementieva three times.

31-2 Copenhagen -> Doha, 2010
Basically the same streak as above, only including Copenhagen (which Caro won) and Cincinnati (lost to Bartoli in the 2nd match).

15-1 Stockholm -> USO, 2008
Won Stockholm (5 matches), 2 matches at the Olympics, won New Haven (5 matches), and three matches at the US Open. Caro's only loss during this streak was against Dementieva at the Olympics. Caro defeated seven top 20 players during this streak. She was ranked #26 going into the streak and #17 when it ended.

16-2 Indian Wells -> Charleston, 2010
Runner up at Indian Wells, QF at Miami, winner at Ponte Vedra Beach. The last match in this streak was the Charleston QF.

45-6 Copenhagen -> present, 2010-11
Caro's streak since Wimbledon 2010 until today is 45-6 (0.8824) - Fed Cup not included! Including Fed Cup matches the streak is 48-6 (0.8889). .


A few streaks from the book of records:
74-0 Navratilova, 1984.
86-1 Navratilova's entire 1983 season!
86-2 Graf's 1989 season!
35-0 Venus Williams, 2000. Although there are many streaks better than this one (Graf, for instance, has a 66-0 streak), noone has done better since then.


[B]Caro's Losing Streaks (excluding ITF, Fed cup, qualies):

Match Stats
Thanks for posting these stats. :)

Where did you get them? The Wta has match stats on their website but on a pretty limited basis which annoys me.

So which matches are you missing particularly for 2009 and 2010?

Does the hard court category include indoor and outdoor hard courts or is it just outdoor hard courts?

Thanks. Here's another brief note from WTA (http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-Archive/Archive/MatchNotes/2011/1003.pdf):

Since the start of 2009,Wozniacki has reached twice as many singles finals (18) as any other WTA player (V.Williams, Clijsters and Zvonareva, 9 each).

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but KleineBiere has updated some of his stats in this thread, and added more charts and tables (post #22). Thanks, great work as always :yeah:

He has also posted a lot of interesting stats from the last 12 monts about the present top 10 (posted in the statistics forum). Caro's stats are quite impressive in some areas (tie-break; winning when set is 5-5; wins against #11-20; wins when 1 set up; 3rd set wins etc.). Have a look:

Maybe it's just me but the post in here seems too long now, too much stuff for just 1 post. Just to be clear I'm referrring to this post: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=19221828&postcount=22

If there's a significant update to some statistics maybe a new post would a good idea as that would be noticable from this forum itself rather than a post update which isn't indicated outside of the post.

Anyways, thanks for the stats. :)

Their sample of matches at 20 is smaller than Caro's at 70, i.e. statistically weaker. Nevertheless, I'll watch out for next Barbora match and back her after winning 1st set :) .. Caro at 95% is not bad. Same goes for Vera with also 50+ matches in the sample.

If we have to crunch numbers, then let me also stress the fact that Caro (obviously?) has been up against much tougher opponents than Patty or Barbora (generally speaking). In their 20 and 18 matches respectively being up a set, only one was against a top 20 player, while Caro faced a top 20 player in more than 20 of her matches being up a set!

Btw: Two of Caro's three losses since 2010 leading a set has been against Na Li! The third was against Justine Henin.

I'm actually surprised that 1st service percentages in the low 70's so consistently seems to be working best for her. She's been winning much more points and games when serving in this area - not just in 2011 (highlighted below), but every year!

Thanks for posting the stats. :)

How about aces per match to go along with those 1st serve %s for each year?

There's something odd going on in those stats. At 70% or more 1st serves in you're generally spinning your 1st serve in so it really shouldn't be the most effective 1st serve. The 2nd serve winning %s are higher than her average as well.

I have service stats from all of Caro's matches this year myself, and I'm quite sure KleineBiere's stats are correct. I agree about you remarks, but the amount of data is relatively small, and any unusual occurences will have big impact. In the match against Martinez Sanchez, for instance, Caro won 11 of 13 2nd services (85 %)!

Wozniacki vs Hantuchova @ Miami 2011 (3rd round, Saturday 26th of March) - extended stats

ESPN's special online live-application called "Pulse" showed a lot of unusual statistics from the Wozniacki vs Hantuchova match at Miami. I will post these stats here (a quite interesting virtual replay of the match was also available at espn, but that won't be available in this thread).

I've also attached a txt-file with a point by point analysis including rally lengths, stroke speeds, etc. - also from ESPN's Pulse stats. It's not complete and perhaps not very readable, and I'm not sure if it's of any use. Here it is anyway. It should be read from the bottom and up, and begins with Caro serving at 40-0, 2-3, 2nd set.

ESPN Pulse showed rally length in their point by point analysis (and in their virtual replay), and that led me to calculate the probability of Caro winning a rally depending on rally length! The stats are based on all 159 points played in the match; not just the 70 or so points described in the txt file in my previous post. Aces and double faults are included in this statistic, although they're not really rallies (they're considered as 1 shot rallies here)!

http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/8130/miami2011wozhantrallyle.png

If the rallies were short, then it would be more or less even who won the point, but the longer rallies (>6) were much more likely to be won by Caroline. Caro won 24 of the 38 rallies in the match which were 7 shots or longer (63.2%).

I've often wondered about this stat though never seeen it before. Interesting though that the likelhood of her winning drops down to 60% if the rally goes to over 10 shots. Anyone any theories why that is? Also would be interesting if the above is much different in a 3rd set. Because Caro always looks fit in the 3rd set - does she have an even bigger % of points won for >7 shot rallies in the 3rd set.

It's coincidental, I think, because the amount of sample data is really to small to have any statistical significance. Only 15 rallies in the match were 10 shots or longer; Caro won 9, Daniela won 6. If any of those 15 rallies had had a different outcome, then the stats would have changed dramatically: either 10-5 for Caro (67%), or 8-7 for Caro (53%). So I wouldn't read too much into it. The combined stats for rallies of 7 shots or more clearly shows a tendency though: 24-14.

Maybe the 3rd set stats would be even more to Caro's advantage (as you suggest). Her 3rd set winning record is indeed very good, which suggests that she's genrally more fit than her opponents late in the matches.

Btw (if anyone wonders), I made a mistake labelling the last column in the chart: The last column says >10, but it should be "10 shots or more" (>9)!

Today Caro reached the all-time top 10 for total weeks as WTA #1, equalling Dinara Safina's 26 weeks. Next week she will push Dinara out of the all-time top 10.
Caro is sure to keep the #1 ranking at least until May 16, but probably loger since Clijsters is out injured.

I'm still perplexed by this serve stat. A lower % of 1st serves in should correlate to a higher % of 1st serves won. The tour leaders in 1st serve winning % tend to have a lower % of 1st serves and the tour leaders in 1st serve % in tend to have a lot lower 1st winning %. The higher 1st serve % in players tend to have slow 1st serves/spinning it in and the high 1st serve winning % tend to have big 1st serves.

I'd be very interested in seeing the average 1st serve speed fot these 1st serve %s.

I also used the 1st serve % given by matchstat.com rather than calculating out a more precise % (such as to tenths or hundredths):


Under 60% 1st serves in : Avg. speed 100.5 miles per hour
60-64% 1st serves in : Avg. speed 97.9 miles per hour
65-69% 1st serves in : Avg. speed 96.9 miles per hour

I think it's a bit deceptive. It presumably includes Charleston which is green clay. And Stuttgard is T2 and we've only had the first 2 rounds at Madrid We should probably wait for the end of Rome and see what the stats say then before we can draw too much significance in it.

I was kind of bored today and didn't wanna do my revision so did some Caro stats instead. :lol: I looked at her wins against the current top 100 just to see her consistency and against the current top 100 she has a 163/64 record. To break it down a bit more :

Against #2-10.
18-24 (42%)
Most wins (4, against Zvonareva)
Most losses (4, against Zvonareva)

Against #11-20.

Against #21-30.
30-6 (83%)

Against #41-50.
25-4 (86%)

Against #51-60.
16-4 (80%)

Most losses (3, against Zheng)

Against #61-70.
11-3 (78%)
Most wins (3, against Benesova)
Most losses (2, against Alona Bondarenko)

Against #71-80.
3-3 (50%)
Most wins (2, against Cornet)
Most losses (2, against Safina)

Against #81-90.
9-1 (90%)
Most wins (4, against Arvidsson)
Most losses (1, against Arvidsson)

Against #91-100.
6-0 (100%)
Most wins (4, against Razzano)
Most losses (none)


I know that was slightly long but I guess the good stat here is that the number of losses don't increase as the ranks go down overall , either they decrease or stay the same , showing that she is very consistent against the lower ranked players , and anyone ranked outside the top 50 , her losses to these players came mainly when she was lower ranked and they were much higher. The top 100 will change next week so this may be completely pointless but for now it gave me something to analyse and I love Caro stats so it was a win win situation for me, just thought I'd share :lol:

Match Stats

Winners and unforced errors per point

http://img3.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/unforcedwinner4wzsr5fl0v.jpg (http://www.fotos-hochladen.net)

blue = unforced errors
red = winners ( Wimbledon and US Open 2008 not available)


This stat gave me a really cool idea how to compare different game styles and their development over time. It's so simple it may already be applied on a regular basis - if so - well it's late and i should have gone to bed already, the same goes if it seems totally useless :yawn:

It seems to me that the UE-Winner count somehow describes the success margin for both aggressive and defensive games (duh - i know). if you subtract UE's from winners you get a plottable number, apply to a curve and you've got a period of time. comparing players going into tournaments is a doddle. It would add something extra to H2H comparisons etc
You could make the number relative to total points in the match like above, that would be even more telling.

Does anyone do this already? if so who and where?

(Ok looking at the idea on print it looks somewhat simplistic, should I just have gone to bed?)

@ The Reff:
I have tried something similar to what you suggest but the resulting stats don't really say a lot about the players. In Caro's case, for instance, we can see that her winners minus UE was positive at Wimbledon 2009 and 2010 while it was negative at USO 2009 and 2010 - even if her results were much better at USO!

angliru
May 10th, 2011, 11:37 AM
The recent discussion about break point conversions made me consider a different approach calculating the break point succes; an approach which is very useful because it can be calculated using available statistics. But it became a bit more difficult to describe than I'd imagined. Please ask if you have questions. My idea is this: When a player is receiving, then she'll win a certain amount of points. This amount of points is available in the general match stats called "Return points won". Now, since a break point is nothing but a return point, then we'd (ideally) expect the receiving player to win the same percentage of break points as return points. I will therefore suggest that break point success is calculated as some sort of "expectance factor" or "expectance ratio" using this formula:

BP success = "BP conversion %" / "return points won %"

...or more exact:

BP success = (break points won/break points played)/(return points won/return points played)

This ratio should be 1.00 when a player is just as successful at the break points as at any other return point played. However, if the player is able to raise her level at the break points, and win more than expected, then her ratio will be higher than one. And if she's worse on a break point than on a regular return point, then her ratio will be lower than one.

The advantage of this approach is that the stats of all players are immediately compareable no matter how good or bad the players are, or whether they're ranked #1, 34, or 862! If their ratio is higher than 1.00, then they're always doing better than expected!

This method can be made even more precise (and a bit more complex, I'm afraid!) by subtracting the break points from the return points, so that the ratio is calculated like this (formula 2):

BP success = ("break points won"/"break points played")/(("return points won"-"break points won")/("return points played"-"break points played"))

I'll use the stats for three players (Kvitova, Azarenka, and Wozniacki) at the recent Madrid tournament as an example. In order to calculate the BP conversion success we need these data:

Return P won Return P played BP won BP played
Kvitova 171 377 27 46
Azarenka 168 337 29 57
Wozniacki 72 171 11 19


Using the formula 2 and the data above gives us these results:

Break point success (returning)

Wozniacki 1.44
Kvitova 1.35
Azarenka 1.02

The same method could also be used when serving, so we can see how succesful players are at defending when the opponent has break points. We need a different set of data for this (serve points, bp saved), which I won't provide here. Madrid 2011 gives us these results:

Break points saved success (serving)

Wozniacki 1.08
Kvitova 1.05
Azarenka 0.95

Now, Madrid is a small set of data - only 3 matches for Caro, 6 matches for the other two players. So these results are not significant. But we could use this statistic for a whole season, which would give a relatively good indication of how well a player performs on the so-called important points (break points or points where she can be broken). We could even multiply the two factors for returning and serving to get an overall "Important point" success ratio!

I have calculated winners minus UE for other players as well (2009-2010), and I didn't find any useful correlation to their style of game or their success. But that shouldn't hold you back. If you have the time, then you should just do your own stats.

There's a term called "Aggressive margin", which maybe could be more useful in this context. I read about it here (http://mymatchpro.com/stats.html). "Aggressive margin" is (winners + opponents forced errors - unforced errors) / total points played. See the description in the link.

Getting the data is another problem. There are some statistic sites with big stats databases, but usually you have to pay to get the full package. I'm sure other posters know more about this.

Then there are several sites with limited match stats (no winners/ue) like this one (match stats pops up when you click the graphic symbol after the score):
http://tennis.matchstat.com/Player/Caroline%20Wozniacki

Using such sites requires a lot of manual work and typing if you want to compare several players, but that is the only way, if you don't have access to databases. Or maybe there are some sites with more thorough stats? The grand slam tournament homepages are also good, and they always (well, almost always) have full stats from all matches available online - also such rare stats as net approaches and serve speeds. You can also find match stats from the previous year of a grand slam, like:
http://2010.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/index.html
http://2010.australianopen.com/en_AU/index.html

Some other tournaments also have match stats online, but not very often (Beijing 2010 had stats - also winners and UE - although a bit unreliable it seems). You can also use the livescoreboard stats (not for winners/UE, but for services, breaks, returns, aces, df's, etc.). Sometimes it's also possible to find "old" livescoreboard stats for previous tournaments using google. The stats for all of Caro's matches are usually posted here in Caro's forum immediately after the match, if the match was broadcast or streamed, and if stats were presented on the screen after the match. Maybe we should make it a habit to always post her match stats here in the statistics thread so they're easier to find?

Judging on how good (almost superb) Caro's stats for Madrid 2011 are, and how poor her results were, I'd say no. But maybe a bigger set of data - or other players - would show better correlation. I don't know.

No, unfortunately it's not possible to make such a calculation using the regular match stats. But it's possible to do it using the "point-by-point" textfiles posted by KleineBiere. It would be a hell of a work though - and only for Caro.

Just thought I'd mention today's win was Caro's 40th of the season! 40-7 = 85%! Not too shabby. :)
At this point (FO 2R) last year her score was 25-10 = 71%

I'd compiled a spreadsheet containing the rates at which the top platers these last 10 years won their titles. So with Caro winning these titles the last 12 months - I've done a sheet for her. I thought you might like to see it.

The Rate column in the middle is the rate of winning titles per tournament played that particular year and goes up and down a lot for all players. The rate column on the right is the rate of winning titles in their career up to that year.

It's coming up slowly because Caro plays a lot of tournaments and had played a lot before she won a title. But it's up to past 15% in her career. The very top players in the 21st century are 20% or higher - well Sharapova has dipped down to 19% - nearly 20%.

Justine was the best finishing her career on over 30%. I can give more figures on other top players if interested. But 20% is the mark that separates the really prolific winners (Justine, Kim, Serena, Venus, Davenport, Sharapova, Hingis) from the rest. But the rest are way down: Capriati finished at 7.5%, Mauresmo finished at 11+%, Pierce finished at 7.5%

This is an interesting, if not just coincidental stat for Caroline during the 2011 season. I saw this before Wimbledon and silently thought to myself, 'Look out in Round 4 Caro'.

Caroline's longest winning match streak this year has been 8 (not counting the wins in Fed cup) and with Monday's loss to Domi, it has occurred 4 times now this season.


5 wins in Dubai (title), 3 wins in Doha (loss to Vera in final)
6 wins in Indian Wells (title), 2 wins in Miami (loss to Petko in Rd 4)
5 wins in Charleston (title), 3 wins in Stuggart (loss to JG in final)
5 wins in Farum (title), 3 wins in London (loss to Domi Monday)

Her other title in Brussels was followed by 2 wins at the FO before falling to Dani (6 straight wins).


Again, something to keep in mind (or not) as we head toward the US Hard Court season. Just don't blame me if this trend continues ;) And if the trend does continue, please Caro lose in New Haven this year!

What shot in the rally is the return of serve counted as? The pointstream data at wimbledon.org counts the serve as the 1st shot in a rally if the point ends in a winner and the return of serve as the 1st shot if the points in a rally. :confused:

Notice that Caro has won as many titles as Bartoli, Azarenka, Peng, Petkovic and Zvonareva added together.

Only players with at least 4 QF appearances in 2011 are listed, but 114 unique players have appeared in the 176 WTA quarter finals played so far in 2011. I have no idea how this compares to other seasons, but it's certainly more than I had expected. I guess the top of the WTA has become quite wide.

Yes, and she is almost certain to claim her 1,000,000$ bonus pool as 2010 YE #1. All she has to do is play at the USO, Tokyo, Beijing and maybe Istanbul (not sure about the YEC) to fulfill her obligations.

Good results rest of the year could see her rise as high as #15. #17 seems certain (after JJ and Vera).

Just looked in up in the rule book, and it seems the top 10 players bonus pool is all about Premier700/Premier5/Premier Mandatory events and has nothing to do with Grand Slams and the YEC.

So as I see it, Caro just need to play at Tokyo & Beijing to claim her 1M$ bonus.

Ah, that was when Caro won her first New Haven title. I had completely forgot that :)

It's also quite funny that some of the stats seems so arbitrary, for instance Chakvetadze winning 8 of 9 finals, but only 9 of 19 semifinals.

Caro is the SF GOAT. Her consistency is evident in these stats. She already has 50 quarterfinals at an age of 21 - averaging 10 QF's per season since her first QF in 2007. And she's converting a lot of these QF's into SF's, finals and titles (I'll put some "conversion-stats" up later).

EDIT: QF W/L stats are available in the statistics forum (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=444025)

3rd round GOAT :cool:

Caro has now reached the 3rd round at 16 consecutive slams! Yes, I know, the 3rd round IS a rather insignificant result - especially at this stage in her career (being #1 and all). We should be talking about titles, finals, or semifinals.

Still, reaching the 3rd round 16 times in a row IS quite remarkable these days! Caro has been extremely consistent and focused at the early stages of the slams, and she's been (relatively) spared from serious injuries (knock...). She's also had a high bottom level on almost every surface - something which is quite rare in modern tennis. Here is a list of the longest consecutive 3R streaks at the slams by active players (all-time best list!):

Maria Sharapova 18
Svetlana Kuznetsova 17
Caroline Wozniacki 16*
Serena Williams 16
Jelena Jankovic 14
Victoria Azarenka 11
Ana Ivanovic 10

Francesca Schiavone 5*
Shuai Peng 5*
Andrea Petkovic 5*
Petra Kvitova 5
Maria Kirilenko 5
Yanina Wickmayer 5
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 5

*Current streaks

Players like Pennetta, Stosur, and Bartoli have 4, 3, and 3 respectively. Here are a few recently retired players for comparison:

Amelie Mauresmo 16
Elena Dementieva 14
Justine Henin 7

Note: Martina Navratilova reached the 4th round 35 times in a row 1980-1989, including 23 finals and 15 titles! Steffi Graf had 19 QF's in a row, including 10 titles (5 titles in a row). Only one of those 19 tournaments ended at the quarters, so Graf reached the semis 18 times during that streak.

We don't see such consistency at all in women's tennis. But Federer also holds some all time-records in men's tennis. His best grand slam streaks are: 29 quarterfinals in a row, 23 semifinals in a row, 10 finals in a row. Almost unbelievable!

Here's a statistical breakdown of Caro's serve in the 1st and 3rd set of her 3 setters played so far this year:


1st serve winning %

1st set 65.4%
3rd set 59.5%

% of service games won
1st set 68.2%
3rd set 63.3%

Caro's 1st serve winning % was higher in the 1st set in 64.3% (9/14) of her 3 set matches.
Caro's % of service games won was higher in the 1st in 54.5% (6/11) of her 3 set matches. The % of service games won was the same in the 1st and 3rd set in 21.4% (3/14) of her 3 set matches.

This chart shows Wozniacki's Win/Loss ratio while being the WTA #1:

http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/1525/wozwlwhileno1.png

The Y-axis shows the W/L ratio. Notice that the Y-axis should ideally show the entire range 0.00-1.00, but I've zoomed in on the scale to emphasize any change in the W/L ratio. The X-axis shows the 80 matches she has played so far (as a #1) since October 2010 - listed in chronological order. The chart is cumulated, so maybe I should add some explanation. Caro won her very first match as a WTA #1 (against Dementieva at WTA Championships 2010); hence her W/L was 1.00 after her first match. Then she lost her 2nd match (against Stosur at the same tournament) which caused the W/L to drop to 0.5. Two more wins (Schiavone and Zvonareva) raised the W/L to 0.75 after 4 matches ("4" on the x-axis). And so on...

Now she has played 80 matches and lost 19, giving a W/L ratio of 0.7625. She peaked when winning the Stuttgart SF in April (match #33) when her W/L reached 0.8485 (28 wins/5 losses).

The W/L since the Stuttgart SF is quite poor by comparison: 33/14 = 0.7021.

This is a repost of a thread I created in GM. The statistics involve many players, but you can find the data concerning specifically Caroline towards the bottom of the post.

Be advised that this is a very long post and completely uninteresting if you don't like data

To make it worse, I do not master English perfectly so the sentence structure could hurt your eyes :lol:

The following statistics relate mainly to the Top10 players. For comparison purposes, I have added some other players who have either had a season exceeding expectations or former elite players.

About Azarenka:

She has 66 wins and 8 losses, including 17/6 against the Top10. She has played 31% of her matches against the Top10, 46% of them against players outside the Top30, including 9 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She suffered only one defeat against the players outside the Top30 and only two defeats against players outside the Top10.

She has won 89% of her matches, which means that she has won 8.25 matches for each defeat.

What could I add to these data? That's just amazing

About Sharapova:

She has 56 wins and 10 losses, including 10/8 against the Top10. She has played 27% of her matches against the Top10, 45% of them against players outside the Top30, including 4 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. Apart from the players ranked in the Top10 when they met, only Kerber and Lisicki have defeated her. No player ranked outside the Top30 has beaten her.

She has won 85% of her matches, for a 5.60 ratio.
She won 55% of her matches against Top10 players in 2012, which is comparable to 58.2 for her overall career

About Serena:

She has 53 wins and 4 losses, including 13/2 against the Top10. She has played 26% of her matches against the Top10, 56% of them against players outside the Top30, including 9 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. Among those matches, she lost against Razzano (ranked 111th).

She has won 93% of her matches, for a 13.25 ratio.

As for Azarenka, these stats speak for themselves

About Radwanska:

She has 57 wins and 17 losses, including 7/9 against the Top10. She has played 22% of her matches against the Top10, 54% of them against players outside the Top30, including 16 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. These 16 matches played against players ranked outside the Top100 shows that she benefited from relatively kind draws compared to the other players in the Top5, especially since she played less than 25% of her matches against other Top10 players. OTOH, she won every one of those 16 matches, something other top players have repeatedly failed to do, as we will see. To be fair, we shall also note that 6 of her 9 losses against the Top10 happened against Azarenka. She also won 95% of her overall matches against players outside the Top30.

She has won 77% of her matches, for a 3.35 ratio. In career, she won 70% of her matches, 36% against the Top10 players

About Kerber:

She has 61 wins and 19 losses, including 8/12 against the Top10. She has played 25% of her matches against the Top10, 58% of them against players outside the Top30, including 4 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She suffered no defeat against players ranked outside the Top100 and only 4 against players outside the Top30 (Barthel, Paszek, Zheng, nothing to be ashamed). She's certainly among the players who met the most Top10 in 2012.

Certainly not my favorite player, but she has had an incredible year.
She has won 76% of her matches, for a 3.21 ratio. In career, she won 64% of her matches.

About Kvitova:

She has 45 wins and 15 losses, including 3/6 against the Top10. She has played only 15% of her matches against the Top10, 52% of them against players outside the Top30, including 7 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She lost 4 times (17%) against players ranked between 31th and 100th and twice (29%) against players outside the Top100 (including a defeat against Venus).

She has won 75% of her matches, for a 3.00 ratio.

About Na Li:

She has 41 wins and 15 losses, including 6/7 against the Top10. She has played 23% of her matches against the Top10, 55% of them against players outside the Top30, including 6 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She has suffered only 5 defeats against players outside the Top30, which shows a surprising consistency for the Chinese. Last year she had at least 8 bad losses. Among the "lesser" players who beat her in 2012, we find Cirstea, Shvedova, Robson, Hantuchova, so she didn't lost against a bunch of newcomers or marginal players.

She has won 73% of her matches, for a 2.73 ratio.

About Errani:

She has 54 wins and 20 losses, including 4/7 against the Top10. She has played 15% of her matches against the Top10, 69% of them against players outside the Top30, including 20 (yes, 20!!) matches against players ranked outside the Top100.

Out of the total of 51 matches she played against players outside the Top30, Errani lost 10 times, or 20%, a relatively high percentage for a player ranked inside the Top10. If we take into account a high percentage of defeats against lesser players, a low rate of meetings against the top 10 and an exceptionally high rate of encounters against players ranked outside the Top30, Errani definitely haven't the usual portrait of an elite player. Of note, she has won 9 of her 12 matches against players ranked between 11th and 30th.

She has won 73% of her matches, for a 2.70 ratio.

About Stosur:

She has 44 wins and 22 losses, including 2/4 against the Top10. She has played a ludicrous 9% of her matches against the Top10, 61% of them against players outside the Top30, including 10 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. Overall, she lost 25% of her matches against players ranked outside the Top30, including 3 defeats against opponents ranked outside the Top30. Her low rate of meetings against the elite players is clearly unusual, while her many losses against players outside the Top30 show her inconstancy.

She has won 67% of her matches, for a ratio of 2.00

About Bartoli:

She has 41 wins and 25 losses, including 2/8 against the Top10. She has played 15% of her matches against the Top10, 64% of them against players outside the Top30, including 8 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She's 2/11 against the players inside the Top20 and 9/2 against those ranked between 21th and 30th. She has lost nearly 30% (12 defeats) of her matches against players outside the Top30, which affects her results.

She has won 62% of her matches, for a ratio of 1.64.

About Wozniacki:

She has 46 wins and 20 losses, including 2/7 against the Top10. She has played 14% of her matches against the Top10, 53% of them against players outside the Top30, including only 3 matches against players ranked outside the Top100 (less than any Top10 players). She has won 91% of her matches against players outside the Top30, including a retirement against Medina Garrigues and a surprising defeat against Begu, a week after she injured her knee in New Haven. Regardless of those retirements, Wozniacki has a winning rate similar to the very best players against the players outside the Top30. Her problems have been mainly against the Top 11-30.

She has won 70% of her matches, for a ratio of 2.30.

It's interesting to note that she has better statistics than Stosur and Bartoli, who are nonetheless ahead of her in the ranking

About Ivanovic:

She has 36 wins and 20 losses, including 2/8 against the Top10. She has played 18% of her matches against the Top10, 65% of them against players outside the Top30, including 7 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She lost only 6 matches out of 31 against players ranked outside the Top30, which shows some consistency. OTOH, she continues to struggle against every in-form players.

She has won 64% of her matches, for a ratio of 1.8.

About Kirilenko:

She has 33 wins and 22 losses, including 2/7 against the Top10. She has played 16% of her matches against the Top10, 67% of them against players outside the Top30, including 10 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. As for Ivanovic, she showed some consistency against the players ranked outside the Top30, with 28 wins and 9 losses.

Unfortunately, her 5 wins and 13 losses against the Top30 players are not satisfactory for a Top20 player (at least in my opinion). It's doubtful that she could keep such a high ranking unless she improves her winning rate against those players.

She has won 60% of her matches, for a ratio of 1.5.

About Jankovic (if you're her fan, you don’t even want to see it, believe me):

She has 33 wins and 29 losses, including 1/7 against the Top10. She has played 13% of her matches against the Top10, 63% of them against players outside the Top30, including 18 matches against players ranked outside the Top100. She’s 7/10 against the Top30 players, 12/15 against those ranked between 31-100 and 14/4 against players ranked outside the top 100.

She has won 53% of her matches, for a ratio of 1.14

Interesting overview. A gap between Serena , Azarenka vs Sharapova is significant! No wonder that Sharapova is showing a lack of confidence.

I think you mean outside the Top100 (Hradecka, Flipkens, Chang).

Excellent overview, otherwise. :)

but on serve...

Is part of this not relative to your level of opponent. One example to illustrate my point. Rafael Nadal in his career has won 43% of return games on clay, on hard court this goes down to 29% of return games won. This is because he is obviously simply a better player on clay. In Caroline's case, her average level of opponent is lower now, so while her return stats may look similar. She has similar stats vs a lower level of opponent (who in the past she will have had better stats against), thus in real terms they are not similar.

It appears anyway that Caroline is holding serve about around 15% less than a few years ago, which is made worse by the fact that outside Sharapova she hasn't exactly faced any of the best returners.

Thankyou for your stats :).

I'm thinking Caro's 2nd serve is either so bad it's sort of good (see Elena D's serve for much of her career) or she's very good
at scrambling to recover from the immediate pressure off an attack on her 2nd serve. Along those lines, I'm curious if defensive players
do better on their 2nd serves than aggressive players.

Wouldn't other players have similar differences in their stats between top 20 players and those outside the top 20 though?

I've always wanted to make some trend stats so we can se how Caro's stats changes over time. It can be any stats (W/L, W/L against top 10's, tie break stats, serve stats, wins when leading a set, wins when being a set down, literally anything). Here is an example of Caro's 3rd set stats:

http://i.imgur.com/3Q5PuDZ.png

I've based theese stats on the 'last 10 matches' but it could also be 5 or 6 matches or whatever suitable. The curve is very 'bumpy' because the stats changes 10% at a time (even more pronounced when using less matches). Notice how she towards the end of 2010 had won ten 3rd sets in a row, and notice the gradual fall in her 3rd set stats until mid 2012 when she won only 3 of 10 third sets. Unfortunately I don't think I'll have the time to proceed with these stats for the time being.

Thanks. She's had some great stats: at least 23-2 vs outside top 50 for two almost years (currently 18-7, I think). I'm also sort of surprised Caro has so many more matches than Maria before 22 years of age!

Thanks KleineBiere. Those 2013 AO winning % on serve from the Adv side (which is where the big points are that must be won). :eek:

It's fair to disregard that 190 kmh from French Open, right? The speeds from some of those courts are known to be rather bizarre.

I was seriously just about to ask what her fastest serve was, ever. I thought it was 183kmh against Kvitova in Beijing 2010, but guess not.

Hey KleineBiere...did you count Caro's retirement when up a set and 5-0 against Kremer as a loss?

Also, do you count retirements in the after winning the 1st set stats?

I'm slightly confused. Are you saying you counted the Kremer match as an overall loss and a loss outside various rankings, that you counted it as loss after winning the 1st set, or both?

It could be. It could also be that she has play at least one match (a lot of times two to three matches) before playing those 11-20 players
so she may have gained some form and confidence.

Could you do a chart from 2007 on with Caro's record against players ranked 21-30, ranked outside the top 30, and ranked outside the top 50? Thanks. :)

Looking at her W:L at the bottom left - we would go on about her drop last year compared to 2011 when she was #1. It dropped 9 points. But the table shows her decline from last year as much again as the drop from 2011 to 2012! She has dropped 9 points again - the same number. I never think of her really dropping from 2012 to 2013 compared to 2011 to 2012. But she has and dramatically.

Excluding 2005 when she only played 2 matches - it's never been as low the whole time she's been on tour! That's quite staggerring. 5 years building up to her W:L ratio when she was #1. Then in only 2 years - a worse W:L than at any time she was playing on the tour. Just so few matches she's played this year because she's lost early so much more.

For sure a major contender at every big hardcourt tournament.
Now she's so far below that, its hard to believe she was ever YE #1 TWICE! and won 5 straight Tier I's. In 3 straight USO semis. 15 semis in 19 tournaments.
It seems so far above what she's doing now

Thanks for the stats KleineBiere. :)

Where'd you get the stats in the two tables above? Did you sit down and watch it point by point yourself?

What about including a stat for all the points won when a player's serve particularly their 1st serve is returned?

Although 36% is a lot better than the 44% of unreturned Goerges 1st serves in the 1st, it still seems too high compared to what an elite returner like Azarenka would do.
