|Abstract||In this paper we investigate the truth (more often the untruth) of seventeen commonly heard statements about tennis. We base our analysis on point-by-point data of almost 500 singles matches played at Wimbledon, 1992-1995. The seventeen hypotheses under consideration are:|
1 A player is as good as his/her second service;
2 There exists a psychological advantage to serve first in a set;
3 Few breaks occur during the first few games in a match;
4 Serving with new balls provides a slight advantage;
5 In the 1995 Wimbledon Championships softer balls were used than in previous years. This has
resulted in less service dominance;
6 After a double fault most players make sure their next first service is in;
7 An ace is worth more than one point;
8 Good players make sure their first service is in at game point or break point;
9 The real champions play their best tennis at the big points;
10 The 7th game is the most important game in the set;
11 All points are equally important;
12 After breaking your opponent's service there is an increased chance that you will loose your own
13 After missing break points in the previous game there is an increased chance that you will loose
your own service;
14 After winning a set there is an increased chance that you will loose the first game in the next set;
15 One break is enough to win the set;
16 In long matches the dominance of the service decreases;
17 In the final set the player who has won the previous set has the advantage.
