I’ve written this article to show users how to get the most out the ‘Ultimate In-Play Spreadsheet’.
The Spreadsheets should be quite self-explanatory but I have received a lot of questions from people that have received part of the Master Spreadsheet as the free sample so I’m going to endeavour to answer them on here.
The Master Spreadsheet:
The first area I look at (columns B-G) is the ATP set stats for each player (this is only 3 set matches, not 5 sets because they are incomparable in this area e.g. the deciding 3rd set in the ATP matches is only the middle set of a Grand Slam match). This is divided into first set, second set and third set win percentages for each player. We also can see the percentage of matches that each player has gone to 3 sets (the 2013 ATP average for this is 36.08%).
All other areas cover main draw matches in either the 3 set or 5 set format.
Columns H-K indicate overall stats for each player. Column H is the service hold for each player across all surfaces in 2013. Column I is the percentage that player breaks their opponent across all surfaces in 2013. Column J is just (100-Column H) which reflects the percentage the player has their service broken. Column K is the player’s service hold plus their break opponent percentage which should reflect how ‘good’ a player is. Anything over 110 would indicate top 10 status roughly.
The next area (columns L-O) I assess is the early parts of the set. This is the first two service games and the first two return games for each player. Column N is the difference between the percentage a player gets broken at any time of the set and how often they get broken in the early games. Taking Almagro as an example he gets broken 14.4% overall in 2013 but only 11.4% in the early 2 games. This would indicate he is strong in the early parts of the set as he gets broken 3.0% less in the early stages (which is reflected in column N). Then we apply the opposite to how often they break their opponents which is column O.
Columns P-S show how often a player holds serve (column P) or breaks their opponent serve (column Q) in the late stages of a set. A late stage of a set is considered to be when the first player gets to 4 games (e.g. 4-0, 4-1, 4-2, 4-3) and any time after that (up to 6-6). Column R is the difference between how often a player holds their serve in these late games and their overall 2013 service hold percentage. We can use Almagro as an example again. He holds 85.6% overall in 2013 but only 80.68% in the late games of the set so he holds 4.92% less in late games in a set than overall games in a set. This would indicate he struggles more under the pressure of the latter stages of the set. Column S is the same but how often a player breaks their opponent. We can see Kevin Anderson overall breaks his opponent 19.3% in 2013 but late on in the set he has broken his opponent 22.51% - so he breaks his opponents 3.21% more late on in the set. So his return game seems to thrive late on in the set.
Columns T-U show how often a player gives a break lead back (so the set goes back to being on serve – column T) and how often a player gets a break deficit back (again, so the set goes back to being on serve – column U). This is at any time in the set and of course it is possible for a player to break back or give a break lead up multiple times in a set.
All the averages for each category are given in row 9 so you can compare each player’s stats to the ATP average.
I hope this gives users a good idea of how the Master Spreadsheet works and for users to see just how lucrative the data on there can be in the betting markets.
