The reinvention of Roger Federer
So much has changed about men’s tennis since then. Technology has made rackets resemble a weapon for a battle in space, but the huge power that they generate also requires extraordinary all-round fitness and the flexibility to control the ball with dollops of topspin. The rallies to win a point are much more demanding than they were in Ashe’s era, when players served and volleyed and points were over very quickly. This makes Federer’s late rebound all the more surprising.

A great novelist will put it into words one day, but for now, implausibly, we have it on our TV screens once again.

The set key autotitle columnheader option is available if gnuplot was built with -enable-datastrings. This command causes the first entry in each column of plotted data to be interpreted as a text string and used as a title for the corresponding plot. If the quantity being plotted is a function of data from several columns, gnuplot may be confused as to which column to draw the title from. In this case it is necessary to specify the column explicitly in the plot command, e.g. plot "datafile" using (($2+$3)/$4) title 3 with lines.

@victolunik -- the null plot trick is a very dirty hack, but it turns out to be one of my go-to gnuplot tricks. Good luck (and happy plotting!). – mgilson Nov 1 '12 at 18:25
