Tennis Match performance diagram

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

When you play a tennis match, one outcome is win or lose, which is reflected in the match scores, such as 6:4, 6:3. However, from match scores you have no ideas how competitive the match is. You can only tell that the match maybe was an easy win for you if the scores were 6:2, 6:1 not 6:4, 6:3. Your match performance is registered in a series of point-by-point scores from which you can tell ups and downs of match and how competitive the match is.

With these in mind, I have created a web-based tool called “Tennis Match Performance Diagram”. This Match Performance Diagram is a plot of performance index generated from weighted scores against point scores of match. It gives an overall picture of your tennis match performance.

This online utility allows you to record and store your match scores, analyze your match with performance diagram, score chart and stats, and improve your tennis game play.

Try it out today, to see how it can help you to analyze and improve your tennis game play.


Essential Tips For Better Volley

You have less time to hit volley at net than to hit groundstroke at baseline. To hit consistent volleys, you need to turn your upper body sideways. Do you always feel that you are short on time to prepare your racquet to line up with incoming balls? One reason is because you are not turning your upper body quickly enough. The key to turn your upper body sideways quickly is to initiate the turn by hip turn (unit turn) other than by leg stepping sideways. Start your hip turn without moving your leg and line up your racquet with coming balls, then if you have time step your leg and move your weight forward (this is so called “Stomp the bug”, see the video clip below). It’s demonstrated here by former world #1, Stan Smith .
