Do you reckon this tournament has so far had an above average number of 5 setters?
Unusual number of 5 sets matches in FO 2012, or am I just imagining it?out_grinder 06012012, 06:45 PM Do you reckon this tournament has so far had an above average number of 5 setters? green25814 06012012, 06:46 PM There have been a lot GSMnadal 06012012, 06:48 PM Voo must be a busy man with all these questions :p Coolio_Jack 06012012, 06:53 PM I voted for option 1, as i didnt want to waste a chance to call you an idiot. out_grinder 06012012, 07:00 PM I voted for option 1, as i didnt want to waste a chance to call you an idiot. Shoulda voted option 2, then you'd have called me a tiger, and I might have gotten a semi Blarghman 06012012, 07:04 PM I have some historical data on this at home, maybe I can post in more detail later. By my count there have been 20 so far at RG this year. The historical average was ~25 per tournament, so through 104 matches you'd expect just about 20, so it actually seems to be close to average. In fact, at this point in 2012 AO, there had been more 5setters than in Paris this week. ServeVolley 06012012, 08:04 PM I was going to start this thread myself. Does anybody have the actual data to compare? Blarghman 06012012, 08:18 PM OK, got a chance to check my data. Average number of 5setters per GS: 23.8. So there have been 20 so far, but its worth noting that, on average, there are less than 3 per tournament once you get past R3, so there is not much room to grow that number. This tournament would have to have a scintillating finish to top 2012 AO, which had 24 through R3 and 27 total. Highest recently is 2010 Wimbledon, with 30, and 2004 USO had 34, which I think is highest of the open era. So this looks like a average grand slam, a bit more than usual, but recently RG has had fewer than others; the last time it got higher than 22 was 2006, and last year it had just 16. Lurking 06012012, 08:19 PM At Slams since 1999: 5 setter every 5.33 matches 5 setter every 5.10 matches at RG 5 setter every 5.33 matches in R128/R64 20 5 setters, 104 matches so far, so average. r2473 06012012, 08:39 PM Who are all these "Voo wannabes"? out_grinder 06032012, 08:39 PM haha, a couple more in R4. Bump Roger the Dodger 06032012, 09:36 PM Wawrinka has 3 Mathieu has 3 Goffin has 2 Who else with multiple 5 sets? alter ego 06032012, 10:10 PM There are 25 matches. Mathieu and Wawrinka have had 3x5 setters. reery 06032012, 11:59 PM The final will also be a 5 setter.:lick: Ouragan 06042012, 11:08 AM I predict a 6 set final, just because. BroTree123 06042012, 11:10 AM Nadal might contribute to this stat soon. christallh24 06042012, 11:48 AM ^^^And why would that be? Not that I disagree, but just wanted to know why you think that. out_grinder 06042012, 12:55 PM OK, got a chance to check my data. Average number of 5setters per GS: 23.8.

So we've had 25 now, just 2 away from that AO out_grinder 06062012, 10:53 AM ...and another 2 brings us to 27 5 set matches  guess we've had that 'scintillating finish' now... r3d_d3v1l_ 06292012, 11:14 AM 22 and we´re into R3.
