Daily Data Viz: Men's distance run to the Wimbledon semifinals
The four 2016 Wimbledon men’s semifinalists have been on court for more than 46 hours, run more than 25 miles and played 4,325 points to reach the final four at Wimbledon. Let’s see who's had to work the most on court:
It’s not surprising to see that Andy Murray has covered the most distance of the final four as his game is built upon his ability to get to almost every shot and make his opponent work a bit extra for every point.
Milos Raonic is the man who likes to end the points quickly with his big serves and aggressive returns, always looking to get the early advantage.
Roger Federer can play like either Raonic or Murray, ending points quickly with a well-placed serve or return, and has the ability to grind them out when necessary.
And Tomas Berdych is the player who takes his time and is very methodical about his approach to the game.
The semifinals match up the two players who run the least and the two who run the most. There’s an old saying, “it’s not the years, it’s the miles”—we’ll see how the miles add up in the semifinals on Friday.
