Making sense of the numbers
In a total of 100 points tracked players made a total of 409 shots, averaging 4.09 shots per rally. That is a decent number of shots made however there are a couple of things to note. To properly develop tactical play it is important to have rallies of 10 or more (in singles play) to set up the point. In these stats there were 7 rallies over ten with a high rally of 15. It is also important to hit your shots technically correct to ensure the best possible shot is hit every time.
Of the 100 points played 90 ended with an error of some kind. Understanding that most points end with an error creates more of an interest to keep the ball in play 2 or 3 more shots every point. The most basic tactic in tennis is to hit the ball over then net and into the court 1 more time than your opponent every point.
I’m excited to see how players perform during the tournaments in November and December. Hopefully we can see rallies lasting longer than 15 shots a point!
