Abstract

This article seeks to determine what proportion of a match win can be attributed to a player’s ability (by assuming no memory of the scoreboard) and what proportion of a match win can be attributed to the psychological affects when a scoreboard is present. Further analysis is carried out to determine how the percentages of points won on serve vary as the match progresses from set to set. These results could be used in the training and coaching of players.
