Re: Are tie breakers predictable?

From: Ron <>
Date: Thu 17 Aug 2000 09:15:30 -0500


I did a study locally on our USPTA Leagues in Corpus Christi, Texas and
found that 25% of all matches were split sets: That when a tie-breaker was
played for the third set the winner of the first set won 51% of the time and
the winner of the second set won 49% of the time. So as you can see from
this small one time study by me, it didn't make any difference as to who won
the first or second set as far as the outcome of the match.

I don't know of any study made to address the question you asked.

Subject: childrens facility
Date: Thu 17 Aug 2000 15:33:48 -0400

I have thought about changing an empty warehouse into a tennis facility
for children. A non-profit public club. Specifically for children
under 13 years old. Building three smaller courts for the little ones,
and one standard size court for the larger children. The purpose: an
indoor facility for children that is affordable to every income level,
where junior players teach children to play, and have organized lessons,
play, and practice. The high school team could spend time with the
children on the courts, as well as parents that play tennis volunteering
their time. Has anything like this been done before? Is there any
money out there to help the children that cannot afford to pay a minimum
fee (perhaps $5.00 per session), and is there any money for racquets and
shoes? Please share your thoughts.
