The Advantage of Serving

After the first, rain interrupted day, of Wimbledon I have looked at some stats because as a tennis trader all of your trading decisions should be based on statistics. I have studied all 19 of the completed men's matches from yesterday and in particular the service stats as we all know that the server has a massive advantage.

Our findings definitely prove what we already knew, only 19.2% of service games yesterday resulted in breaks of serve so in over 80% of service games the server holds. The match between Fish and Granollers resulted in only one break of serve in 34 service games and in 6 of the 19 matches, the winner's serve was not broken.

It is worth noting that the players whose serve was not broken were Milos Raonic, Mardy Fish, Tomas Berdych, Igor Kunitsyn, Stan Wawrinka and Feliciano Lopez. This augurs well for these players as if their serve is working well then they will prove to be very difficult to beat so as a trader, it would be worth Backing these players on serve in their next matches.
