Andy's stats

Quote

After scotnadian jokingly requested some 'facts' after Aileen claimed that Andy never plays well earlier in the day and Angie disputed this claim on the Andy vs Mannarino match thread, I'm starting up a thread for various stats related things for anyone who wants to post or read about Andy's stats.

Getting the data for compiling a win-loss record for matches played in specific parts of the day isn't that easy and I've been going back through the match threads on MW to get the timings. Which has been an interesting experience to say the least, and that's with only having to glance through the first few pages on a thread to find times! It is quite time consuming; so far I only have data for 2014 and 2015 to date, but I will, slowly but surely, get data as far back as is possible and update as and when I can so that those who are interested can compare things.

I have split the day into four sections: Morning (up to 12 noon start time); Afternoon (up to 5pm start time); Evening (up to 8pm start time); Night (8pm onwards start time).

2015

Morning

1-0

Afternoon

11-2

Evening

3-1

Night

0-0

2014

Morning

2-1

Afternoon

36-11

Evening

15-3

Night

7-5


Andy plays very few morning matches these days. In 2014 he lost the match to Raonic in IW which had an 11am start time. Andy's win-loss record in the afternoons and evenings is pretty good. Last year he lost a number of night matches including two very late matches - the Acapulco SF and the USO QF.

Of the afternoon loses in 2014 some key loses did occur in the earlier part of the afternoon - Wimbledon QF being the one that stands out, though what impact the time of the day had on that match is debatable since there were obviously other issues. Matches where Andy faced difficulties at the USO in 2014 where ealier afternoon matches - vs Haase with the cramping and vs Kuznetzov. Both those matches were played on Armstrong though so that would have been at least as much of a factor as the start time.

On the whole Andy tends to have a better win-loss record on matches played mid-late afternoon and the evening. While he has had some incredible late night matches in the past in 2014 the changes in climate which occur in night matches appeared to cause him to become stiffer and less nimble around the court.

Really interesting stuff atl, but what a work! i've often wondered about all the time-of-day factors that have a bearing on performance, from atmospheric conditions to players biorhythms.  Fascinating area of study.

Who said I was joking? Eyebrow raise.

But nontheless.. excellent job. And very interesting.

There are so many factors, both tangible and intangible, that may account for Andy's results on the court.

You did say you were joshing with me... I'll get round to other years at some point. Some of the match threads from last year were a bit much, even before the match was underway.

I'm still joshing with you.

But I really, honestly do love facts. And I really, honestly do love joshing.

That's how I roll, leafie. Very Happy

I know... It was really sad to see how many good posters seem to have abandoned the site over the last 12 months.

Anyway thank you very much for this huge work, very interesting !

you are incorrigible atl!   Just hope that today proves the exception to the statistical rule (or at least pattern) ie an early start doesn't count against Andy
