Special Markets Analysis -Review of the fortnight Straight Sets- Result 51
This seems to have plateaued out over the last three years at just over fifty. Perhas the gap between the top 100 in the world has narrowed and serving is now a major part.
Sets Won To Love- Result 7
The market makers got this one right and can be quite a lottery -again, there is always the chance that a player will hold their serve at least once during a set, so it should never go over ten.
5th Set Games- Result 462
What can you say? If you bought this spread then you were laughing and must have loved every second of that Isner v Mahut match. Describing it as a 'freak result' is doing it an injustice -as it was the most outstading display of serving ever seen and this total was 180 over the highest seen in the last five years. It may push the spread up by a few points next time round -even if you take off the 138 games in that marathon fifth set, it still finished 60 up.
Tie Breaks- Result 97
We didn't think that this would make 90, so 97 is a good result for buyers. There were 40 in the first round, when there is supposed to be a gap in class between the players, so the writing was on the wall from then. Tie Break Points- Result 1212
Their were plenty of high scoring TBs with 5 x 18 points, 4 x 20 and a 22, 24 and 26 to bolster the record total. Actually it could have been higher as there were 100 points that were not counted due to players retiring before the match was completed.
