A stochastic analysis of scoring systems
Many scoring systems can be seen as statistical tests of hypotheses. In tennis singles, for example, the scoring system used can be seen as a test involving 2 binomial probabilities pa and pb, where pa (pb) is the probability player A (player B) wins a point initiated by player A (player B). Tennis singles is thus a “bipoints” game. The tennis scoring system is an inefficient test relative to the sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) based on pairs of these points. When pa + Pb >...[Show more]
