If you are serious about your tennis, you should definitely consider Tennis Analytics. Just upload your video to their site and they break down the video into discrete points and then tag them and describe them. AND tabulate the percentages. 25 different categories of shot. Serves, forehands, backhands, volleys, errors, winners, etc. If you are not measuring, how do you know if you are improving?
- I’ve known Jeff for years (he’s a Colorado native) and he teaches not too far from my home. His lessons are insightful and I highly recommend you at least get on his email list for free tips. I’ve learned more from Jeff than from any other teaching pro in Colorado. A former top 100 ATP touring pro, he gets right down to the nitty gritty. Whether you’re a junior just starting out with big hopes, or a senior player like myself, give his site a visit!

- Ever want to quantify your match, look into the numbers? Here’s a link to an app for your phone or tablet. Check it out at Protracker.com. Here’s a blurb from their site: (disclaimer: I have not used this particual product but have used similar. I would suggest using it with your match video in the comfort of your own home.

“Tennis coaches find it exceedingly useful to track and analyse their player’s competitive matches – valuable information can be gained to improve a player’s performance.
Following a match, the perceptions a player has of how it went will often differ from how the coach saw it. After having played a match the player will ask why and how did I win/lose? Instead of saying “I don’t know” or simply guessing, this fantastic software allows players to answer the questions of how and why they won or lost. By demonstrating to the player the real facts of the match such as would be seen on TV analysis, valuable lessons are learnt. Weaknesses can be acknowledged and ironed out, and strengths can be identified to exploit further.
Coaches have traditionally used pen and paper for this task. But now, inexpensive handheld devices, which are both unobtrusive and easily used outdoors or indoors, are ideal for this task and ProTracker Tennis is the perfect software to use. It runs on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch and Windows PCs/Tablets.
Parents of aspiring juniors can record their children’s matches and forward a ‘match file’ or report to the coach, for him or her to review on a PC and compare with other matches. Something useful to do and a way of relieving stress!
Umpires can use ProTracker Tennis for scoring. A single ‘Tap’ is needed for each point.”
