Renowned tennis player Andre Murrall seems to have left the tennis tournament he is currently playing in, Winbelldam. No one knows where he has gone except a taxi driver who claims he drove Murrall away from the tournament. However Andre has paid the taxi driver (Who is also very good at Maths) not to reveal his location specifically so when the media ask him about Murrall's location he hands over this:
The taxi driver gave this short speech and handed the interviewer these tennis scores:
"He’s such a key player, count the numbers of the times that he's hit a winner, compare that to the letters he’s received from the queen, he is an all-time great.
What adds up is that you can take the mean out of him. After that you can still add up the mean-ness.
When you count all the games he and his opponents have played its incredible.
How many times has he lost? 5, 11, 9, 3, 9, 1, 5… who knows! I just can’t help looking at the letters from players congratulating him.
Looking at these scores you can deduce that they are complete nonsense and bear no resemblance to the tournament at all. They must have some other hidden meaning which can be unlocked by something else...
Where has Andre Murrall gone?
NOTE: You only need (very) basic tennis knowledge
There are 4 parts to this puzzle which lead to a 3 word sentence explaining where he's gone. Each 'part' relates to each paragraph of the interview.
Key phrases in the paragraphs, to stop you going off on the wrong track
1. 'Count the numbers (digits)', 'compare that to the letters (in the players names)'
2. 'Adds up (digits in each separate match)', 'take the mean (and round it), 'add up the means'
3. 'Count all the games' (games as in tennis games)
4. '5, 11, 9, 3, 9, 1', 'compare to letters' (same as first paragraph but numbers given).
Compare the numbers you get from paragraphs 2 and 3 to the alphabet
