    Default 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.
