Default Re: Match points saved (21st century)

Stats of the Top 20 players considering their involvement in MP matches and SP sets.

An exemplary Djokovic's 2012 season:

2-0 & 3-3 means he won in that particular year two matches saving at least 1 MP and didn't lose any having MP. He also won two sets when he was a SP-down and lost two sets wasting a set point. If a player wins for example 6-3 5-7 6-2 blowing MP in the 2nd set I count it as SP. If a player wins two sets saving MPs (Murray d. Robredo 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 for instance) one set is counted as SP the other one as MP.

What does this stat tell us? Approaching every season we can expect that majority of the notable players will be involved at least once in an MP match and each one of them will be involved in a few sets of SPs saved/wasted.

As I mentioned a couple of times on this forum, Murray had a very long period - for tennis standards (over two years) - when he had been winning all sets once he got a set(match) point, and suddenly lost three matches in the 2012 season within three weeks wasting match points. It's bizarre stuff, and the only explanation I think is that he had been so concentrated at the most crucial stages of so many sets that something in his mental focus finally let him down, and coincidently it happened in the MP sets.

The comprehensive statistics of set points saved/wasted has been possible to generating only since 2010, however, I know all sets of this type (by a tiny margin of error) as far as the best players born in the 1980s are concerned: Hewitt, Federer, Nadal etc.
