The Length of a Contest and the Favourite's Chances.

In this guest post from last week, I look at the impact of the length of a sporting contest on the chances of the favourite progressing or the under dog pulling off a shock. It is particularly relevant as the tennis season swings into full stride and match length increases from a maximum of three sets to five.
