Stat of the Week: 7%
It’s break point. Do you go for it? Or just get it in?
When serving on break point, the 1 to 4 rally length accounts for 52% of all points for men’s college players.
When serving on game point? It jumps up to 59%.
That’s a 7% increase!
- When they are serving for the game, they “go for the kill.”
- When down a break point, they just want to “get it in” or play “not to lose.”
Here are the rally lengths broken down by 1st & 2nd serve for NCAA Men during the 2019-2020 season.
|ALL SERVES||1 to 4||5 to 8||9 to 12||13+|

It’s also a great time to start getting some baseline statistics for your game.

- Film the match.
- Purchase our player package – split it with your friend 😉
