Stat of the Week: 33%
Carlos Alacaraz Garfia has taken the tennis world by storm and is certainly a contender at 2022 Roland Garros.
In Barcelona, Alcaraz demolished his opponents in the final rounds. Of all the points he ended on his own racket, 33% were winners. Which means that for every two errors he made, he hit one winner.
This is almost unheard of at the top levels of the game! His opponents hit a whopping FOUR errors for each winner.
Here is a look at his stats from Barcelona.
Point of the Week
Winners are typically a by-product or “bonus” for a well constructed point. Great players don’t set out with the intention of hitting winners. Rather, they try to minimize their own errors, while trying to maximize or create opponent errors.
Tagged match video enables you to filter all of your winners and errors in a match, and then use this to identify tendencies.
- Which area of the court do most of your errors come from?
- Do you have more trouble with high or low ball?
- Does pace affect your error rate?
The video will help you answer these questions, and more. Take this information to the practice court and accelerate improvement.
