Winning the close ones
Looking through the Swiss Open men's singles results I noticed a lot of 22-20 scores.
The thought struck me: Who wins those games?
Does the person who catches up to 20-20 carry on the momentum? Or do they slack off once they draw even?
There have been ten scores of 22-20 in Men's singles, as of today.
Of the players who reached twenty first, 7 lost and 3 won.
This tiny sample suggests that the "comeback kid" carries the momentum through.
If it were a true statistic, would it surprise anyone? Or does it ring true with your own experience?

your small sample suggests nothing...
if it were a true statistic, i wouldn't be too surprised. you named momentum and it seems an appealing explanation.

I would say both scenarios are just as common. When the score is 20-20 no player really has the momentum anyway. It will be more about who can keep a cool head and just take the opportunity.
