Re(1): New Hall of Famer for Craig G re: Game Point winners Posted on February 10, 2018 at 03:16:23 PM by Craig G
Thanks. Just a little factoid, yet another quirk of the spectacular scoring system.
As I stated, I discovered it accidentally, but I was impressed that Bennett nailed it with "80% plus" and that Haitian Gary and IWasSam also got the point quickly.
I don't know if there is even a trace of handicapping significance that we don't already know by other means.
But it does underscore the fact that you are not likely to receive your way to victory. Particularly in the higher posts. So if you see a player with a handful of recent wins from the high posts, you can be almost certain that he's not having trouble winning serve points.
That might be linkable to doing as well in post 1 doubles as in post 2. The ability to neutralize or minimize the doubles serve disadvantage. If true, then that might be a worthwhile handicapping angle to investigate. Replies:
