TTGuru selects Kenta Matsudaira as his outstanding player award. A selection I can definitely agree with!

  1. Being a stats man myself I don't need to say how much I enjoyed this post.

    Kenta definitely deserves the outstanding player award!

    Out of interest who was disqualified and why?

  2. The gentleman who was disqualified is none other than Quadri Aruna from Nigeria. He was DSQ'd in his second preliminary round against Hugo Calderano.
    Perhaps he showed up with no shoes or something ;)
    So that's why Hugo made it to the main draw!

    Thanks for taking an interest in these stats Ben!
    Plenty left in the bag ;)

  3. By the way, that was not in any way meant to sound racist, I was just referring to Qaudri Aruna's spectacular point during the Olympics where he finished a point after his shoe had come off!
    Classic moment :P
