Re: Rank the top 10 players from "BBB" to "pusher"

Not that I have too much time on my hands - but I used the Winner/UE stats at matchstat.com to see how the top 10 compared.

I know Winner/UE stats are notorious for potential subjectivity, but thought it was at least worth a look.

** FOR 2012 SLAMS **

Bash Factor® (UE as % of points lost)
44% - Maria
43% - Petra
42% - Na
39% - Serena
37% - Vika
36% - Sam
29% - Angie
26% - Caro
25% - Sara
22% - Aga

Attacking Force® (Winners as % of points won)
45% - Serena
36% - Maria
34% - Petra
33% - Na
32% - Sam
30% - Angie
29% - Vika
25% - Aga
24% - Sara
21% - Caro

Pushing Power® (Opponents' UE as % of points won)
49% - Sara
48% - Caro
42% - Aga
38% - Angie
32% - Na
32% - Sam
26% - Petra
25% - Vika
23% - Serena
20% - Maria

Vulnerability Quotient® (Opponents' Winners as % of points lost)
50% - Sara
48% - Aga
43% - Caro
39% - Angie
26% - Sam
24% - Serena
22% - Vika
21% - Petra
18% - Na
18% - Maria

As I was still bored I did the same for last year

** FOR 2011 SLAMS **

Bash Factor® (UE as % of points lost)
44% - Na
43% - Maria
40% - Petra
37% - Serena
35% - Sam
32% - Angie
27% - Vika
26% - Aga
24% - Caro
23% - Sara

Attacking Force® (Winners as % of points won)
42% - Petra
41% - Serena
35% - Angie
33% - Maria
33% - Sam
30% - Na
28% - Vika
27% - Aga
26% - Sara
20% - Caro

Pushing Power® (Opponents' UE as % of points won)
47% - Aga
46% - Caro
40% - Sara
32% - Angie
31% - Na
30% - Sam
26% - Serena
24% - Vika
23% - Maria
21% - Petra

Vulnerability Quotient® (Opponents' Winners as % of points lost)
44% - Sara
44% - Caro
44% - Aga
38% - Angie
31% - Sam
29% - Vika
26% - Serena
21% - Maria
20% - Na
17% - Petra

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I've always thought of Maria as the most 'bash-prone' of the top players. For 2011 and 2012 combined she tops the stats for the UE ratio (ahead of Na and then Petra), but is 3rd (behind Serena and Petra) for the winners ratio.

Which would indeed imply that for the last two years, Maria has been (on average, and only just) the player least able to control her aggressive play at the slam level
