Recap of the decade?

Recommended Posts

Since the next honbasho is Hatsu 2020, i figured it might be an interesting idea to recap the decade with some stats.

 

Yusho in the 2010s:

1. Hakuho - 29

2. Harumafuji - 8

3. Kakuryu - 6

4. Kisenosato - 2

4. Mitakeumi - 2

6. Tochinoshin -1

6. Takakeisho -1

6. Asanoyama - 1

6. Tamawashi - 1

6. Asashoryu - 1

6. Baruto - 1

6. Kyokutenho - 1

6. Terunofuji - 1

6. Kotoshogiku - 1

6. Goeido - 1

 

So that's all the yusho winners this decade, a bit more underwhelming than i thought.

We've had 7 new ozeki this decade (Baruto, Kotoshogiku, Goeido, Terunofuji, Takayasu, Tochinoshin, Takakeisho) And on an interesting note, the last 4 ozeki have all had shikona that begin with the letter T. We've had 4 (or 5, if you count Takayasu) ozeki's Tenures end and begin within the decade (Baruto, Kotoshogiku, Terunofuji, and Tochinoshin.)

Three new Yokozuna (Harumafuji, Kakuryu, Kisenosato) Harumafuji and Kisenosato's tenures ended within the decade.

 

I'd like to calculate the highest win loss percentages in the top division this decade (Terutsuyoshi would have 75% haha) but i'm to lazy to do that right now. :( If anyone wants to add feel free to contribute, it would be great!

When you consider how long we went without a Japanese winner, and few winners other than Asashoryu and Hakuho, then I find that yusho list quite refreshing.

Here's all of the win loss percentages for any makuuchi ranked rikishi in the 2010s. In all, 134 people fought at rank maegashira or above in the 2010s.

(These don't include fights in makuuchi when the person was ranked juryo, but does include makuuchi ranked rikishi fighting a juryo opponent)

Not surprisingly Hakuho is at the top of this list. Somewhat surprisingly, Tochiozan has the most bouts in Makuuchi in the 2010s (despite recently slipping into Juryo).

The worst rikishi is Chiyotaikai at 0%, since his very last basho was 2010 Hatsu with his injury. Impressive are the rikishi like Tamaasuka who managed a 30% win rate yet still participated in almost 100 bouts.

87.30 Hakuho 660-96
86.67 Asashoryu 13-2
80.00 Wakatakakage 4-1
70.90 Harumafuji 441-181
66.71 Kisenosato 469-234
66.44 Kakuryu 491-248
66.30 Baruto 179-91
61.07 Takakeisho 149-95
58.76 Goeido 473-332
57.68 Mitakeumi 214-157

I guess you were using this List of Ozeki as a source, wich is a bit misleading. Kisenosato and Kakuryu have also been new Ozeki in this decade.

Yusho in the 2010s:

I only count 57 yushos in your list...  I think it should be 59 (or 58, if you discount the  yusho of Hakuho after the scandal) - or am I missing something?.  But Hakuho has won about half of the bashos of this decade? He is truly a rikishi whose like we will be very lucky to see again!

6. Tochinoshin -1

6. Takakeisho -1

6. Asanoyama - 1

6. Tamawashi - 1

6. Asashoryu - 1

6. Baruto - 1

6. Kyokutenho - 1

6. Terunofuji - 1

6. Kotoshogiku - 1

6. Goeido - 1

Based on this list Hakuho has one more yusho than everyone else combined - 29 vs 28. If nothing else then at least this underlines just how dominant he's been.

Yeah, I make it 31 yusho for Hakuho this decade, not 29.

When I look at names like Toyozakura, Kasugao and Koryu amongst others, I am quickly reminded of the yaocho-gate from May 2011. 

It feels like yesterday, but it has been more than 8 years. :-O
