Just a question, when I looked on the ATP site I noticed some recent matches for which no stats are available, and I imagine this is more prevalent for older tournaments. Given the nature of the stats wouldn't this skew the picture a bit and make some findings potentially bogus?

I tried my best to eliminate frequent patterns of missing data like
http://www.atptennis.com/5/en/players/playerprofiles/popMatchStats.asp?sd=Singles&trnnum=604&trnyear=1991&rnd=4&plyr=K023 or http://www.atptennis.com/5/en/players/playerprofiles/popMatchStats.asp?sd=Singles&trnnum=604&trnyear=1996&rnd=4&plyr=C344 for example.

So, if everything else is missing, but it shows 0 aces for player 1 and player 2, then these numbers were not counted in a stats like "fewest aces against"

However, I did not spend too much time on it yet and I might have missed some other patterns which occur frequently.

Also it goes without saying that the stats might be skewed if there are wrong numbers given. This means if every other category looks fine, but 0/0 break points means they had no clue what the right number was or if it is wrong itself, there is no way to confirm the true number and it entered the count.


If anybody count manually some numbers I gave in this thread (maybe because they can't believe it or because they are interested to confirm because it is about a favorite player of them) and finds some errors or missing match stats for a player on his way to a title, then let me know about it and it helps me to define other frequent missing value patterns :yeah:
