For those who paid enough attention, we know that there were 128 players in each of the Men's and Women's tournaments.
My question for the day is this: how many matches were played in each of the two singles competitions in order to find the tournament champion?
Of course it is a simple matter to figure out how many matches were played in each round and add them all up. However, there is a much more elegant solution which is best described in words (not numbers) and requires no mathematical ability whatsoever. Best of all, the same answer applies no matter how many players competed - 16, 32, 64, 128 etc.
The first reader to describe this solution in the comments below wins kudos and adulation.
