In a game of table tennis, 24 of the 37 points played were won by the player serving, and Smith beat Jones 21-16. Remembering in table tennis that service alternates every five points, who served first?

I think your solution depends on assuming that the winner of the last point was the server in that group of five-- your statement that "the even belongs to the winnger". That assumption is not true.
