That’s how we started our quest for developing tomorrow’s tennis-champions.
Along the way, we discovered that major IT-companies like SAP, Infosys, Sony and IBM could provide what we were looking for, namely hard facts about how you most effectively win tennis matches:
Where should you place your return of the opponents second serve?
Is the speed of the first serve correlated with winning matches?
What is the most effective "pattern of play" when you are serving?
When players are double-faulting, what are the most common errors that they make?
Is it more efficient to develop “grinding-skills” compared to “serve & volley-skills” when you are under 16?
This insight from 100 Grand Slam tournaments and more than 2000 ATP & WTA tournaments is key to us when we develop our programs, our models for patterns of play, our specific exercises; it’s time to say goodbye to mindless training without a clear purpose and goal.
