he just does scores.
they have a statisician (some level of player) doing error/winners.
Miami stats ( dont think they have anyone there doing proper stats for qualies or outer courts)tenn_ace said:so I guess it is babushka if you look at some of the stats for Miami qualies
TheBoiledEgg said:Miami stats ( dont think they have anyone there doing proper stats for qualies or outer courts)
they are only counting aces for winners
and UE's for DF's
when the maincourt comes into play, they will have proper stats for 1 court i think.

It certainly needs to be uniform. For instance, all errors are unforced errors at Roland Garros. What's up with that? :scratch: :shrug:vogus said:The second one. The babushka flips a coin - heads it's a winner and tails it's a UE. If the babushka doesn't show up, they pull one of the ball kids off the court and have him do it.
"Match statistics" are a fucking joke. The entire system of tennis stat-keeping needs to be overhauled.
