Japan Open statistics – something for the nerds!

Japan Open 2018 is over and it gave us more than 112 hours of badminton. That’s nearly 20 hours more than at the Asian Games – and with only five matches more! Does that mean it’s the Europeans and North Americans that are slow?

Here you find our finals – the final detailed insight in Japan Open…

Three finals were shorter than the average length in its category. There were 10% more points in the men’s doubles than in any of the other categories. And then men’s doubles and mixed doubles were nearly as fast as each other when looking at average seconds per point for the whole tournament.

Finally the match with most points today had the exact same total points as yesterday. So did the one with fewest points…

Enjoy the nerdy reading!
