Daily Data Viz: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's success on break point conversions
In his semifinal loss at Roland Garros to eventual champion Stan Wawrinka, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga converted just one of 17 break points (6%). Against Gilles Muller in the first round at Wimbledon, Tsonga converted just one of his first 14 break points (7%) before finding his range and converting both of his break points in the final set—he finished the match converting three of 16 break points (19%). For comparison, the Wimbledon tournament average for converting break points is 37%, while Tsonga’s 2015 average is 37% and his career average is 41%.
If Tsonga wants to break through and claim his first Grand Slam title he will need to be more efficient when he has break point opportunities. Can Tsonga go from breaking bad to breaking good?
