Just a cursory glance at those stats show that 2001 was more competitive than 00?

Certainly felt that way to me, and the stats seem to bear that out.

Merci, l'Oeuf!

I got the same impression as Free. Fewer double-bagels. Fewer 1-2 matchups, shorter winning streaks, a couple of max matches (3 tiebreaks). No one stood above the field over the course of the whole season. That showed in the tightness among the top 4 in the rankings.
