Re(3): Great Match--Preliminary Stats

Condensed linescore (winners always listed first)

1-0; 1-2; 2-2; 2-3; 3-3; 3-5; 5-5; 5-7; 6-7; 6-8; 8-8; 8-9; 10-9; 10-11; 12-11; 12-12; 13-12; 13-13; 14-13; 14-14; 15-14

11 tie scores; 3 lead changes. The largest margin was 2 points.

My scoring, yours might be different.

Zulaika +8 -1; Ladutxe +0 -3
Erik +9 -4; Bailo +1 -3

Total scoring for the match +18 (.621) -11 (.379)

Balls in Play: 264

Non-error %: .958 (errors/total balls in play, sort of like a baseball fielding %, but different, of course.) 96% non-errors is pretty high for this modality. And 5 of the errors, according to my scoring, came after 10-10. I think the guys got a little "gassed" at the end. If you extrapolate this to a 3 set partido (which it very well could have been), your talking over 550 balls in play, in a match that would have lasted over 1 1/2 hours.

Will have a more detailed write up on this a little later. Really hope we can see this again, so I can try to quantify the number of saves. What a joy it was to watch this match.

Number of Balls in Play/Number of points

0-4: 8
5-9: 10
10-14: 5
15-19: 5
32: 1

Longest point: 9-10--10-10--32 balls in play. Bailo makes 3 extraordinary saves.

Time of the match: 44 minutes.

That, of course, doesn't begin to describe how great this match was. Hopefully, we will all get another chance to view it. The number of saves was astronomical.

This was as good a partido as I have seen all year. High Cestas to all.
