OK, nuances?

Got to assume you're talking about points in which the game was actually won, not all 'game points'.

First, in runouts, the server has obviously already won. In 18.75% of the games.

In the rest (non-runouts), I'm assuming the team who just won the point (i.e., the current server) has more points (the majority of the time) than the team coming off the bench. Not positively sure, I suppose, but a guess, since they have just won 2 points.

So, give them just a 50% closer rate, and you still get a majority of server wins.

Interesting, but I agree, not a handicapping consideration.
