    Hi there! I have a doubt that I'd like to discuss. My doubt is about the word over. Can I say "He improved over the last 4 games" in the sense of " El mejoró a lo largo de las últimas cuatro partidas" I've seen many times "over the years" so I suppose that "over the last 4 games" may be correct as well. Thanks beforehand.

    I hope you will not mind a few minor corrections/suggestions that will make your English flow a bit smoother...

    NOTE: 'Over the matches' doesn't sound quite right to me, but I can't say why... I would say: Throughout the match/series/tournament

    'He improved over the last four games' sounds OK to me too.

    "Over the last four games" is fine, but my preference would be "over the course of the last four games". Just sounds more natural to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if others disagree.
