    "Statistics Don't Lie"

    Submitted by the USBA. 16FEB96 Updated by the IGPB. 28NOV96

    The speed and the stamina required for badminton are far greater than for any other racket sport.

    At the 1985 All England (Tennis) Championships, Boris Becker defeated Kevin Curren 6-3, 6-7, 7-6, 6-4.

    At the 1985 World Badminton Championships in Calgary, Canada, Han Jian of China defeated Morten Frost of Denmark, 14-18, 15-10, 15-8.

    The following is a statistical comparison of those matches.
