Player Patterns in Platform Tennis

Should you go for more winners when you play? The data tells another story.

Part of being consistent is keeping track of what shots you miss, what shots you make and which shots are winners.

Winners Mean Less Than you Think

Total Points Played by All Players (Midtown and Opponents)

Errors Rule

#1 — Missed lobs — 23.9%

#2 — Missed Returns — 23.6%

#3 — Missed Serves — 20%

The better strategy is to make sure you get serves, returns and lobs in the court, even if that means you have to dial down the pace.
