1. ## Badminton and Tennis - Scores Equivalence

I was thinking about what kind of scores in Badminton equate to certain scores in Tennis. For instance, what is the Badminton equivalent of a 6-3 win in Tennis? Or a 6-2 win? Post your thoughts here.

Eventually, I decided to go for a basic method using the percentage of points won for each player. I take it that for each game one wins in Tennis they win 4 points, while for each game you lose you win 2 points. I am aware that this is not fully the truth, but only an approximation, but it will do as a satisfactory average.

Let's start with the classic Tennis score to convert first: 6-0 (Bagel). What is 6-0 in Tennis in a Badminton game? Well, here's my working:

You: 6 games won * 4 points per game won = 24 points
Opponent: 6 games lost * 2 points per game lost = 12 points
Total: 24+12=36 points

Therefore, the percentage of points a player needs to win in order to Bagel the opponent is 24/36=67%. The equivalent score for Badminton is therefore:

21/x=67%
0.67*x=21
x=21/0.67
x=31

Therefore, the opponent's score is 31-21=10, so the equivalent of 6-0 in tennis is 21-10 in Badminton. Perhaps, including intangibles, a Triple Bagel is more like 21-9, 21-9.

2. This is an interesting question. I have been thinking of a related question for a while now, and I think I can branch my solution to answer your question "correctly".

Currently, you are just assigning: 2*n points for win, n points for loss. This is completely arbitrary, and thus should not even count as an approximation.

I will redo my analysis for tennis and post a new thread in a few days with my solution and hopefully the answer to your question as well.

As a small correction, in my above post, I meant to type "n+2 points for win, n points for loss" rather than "2*n points for win, n points for loss".

You people need to get out more !!!!!!!

I'm skeptical. I think you see 21-10 (or 21-less than 10) more often in professional badminton matches than you see 6-0 in tennis matches.
