    I don’t think all game points are big points. I think only 40-30, or ad-ins are big game points. I never see a fist pump to make the score 40-15, but often see it when the returner gets a game to deuce, ergo not a big point to hold at love or 40-15.

    The conclusion though, Kerber has to work harder to win?

    Yes…every woman on the WTA who isn’t Serena, Masha or Vika has to “work harder” to win vs those girls. You don’t need stats to figure that one out lol.
