New week, new tournament, new statistics! Badminton Famly digged into the matches on the first day of China Open to see if something interesting would pop up. And yes, something did!

Not only was Chen Long close to leaving the tournament on day one – he also, once again, delivered the longest and slowest match of the day. A specialty is his that we noticed at our statistics from the World Championships – maybe it has something to do with his name…

Four of the five categories played today were pretty even in terms of seconds per played point. The last category used appr. 20% longer time – can you guess which?

Finally the average points per match in men’s single was more than 30% more than in women’s double…

Enjoy the stats!
