Only 10% of the world population is left-handed.
However, since the start of the so-called "Open Era", tennis players playing with the left hand have won 22 of the 96 individual titles from the prestigious Wimbledon tournament: 23%.
Whereas, subjected to equal odds between left-handed and right-handed, the former should have won only nine tournaments.
