Abstract

Commentators often refer to match statistics during a live match to make an assessment as to how the players are performing. For example, one player may have converted 80% of break point opportunities compared to 10% for the other player, and this is reflected in the scoreboard. At the completion of the match, the coaches and players are likely to use the match statistics to assess performance. Therefore, it is important to interpret match statistics correctly as misinterpretation could affect future performance.
