Australian Open Final- 'Food for Thought'

This year's women's open final proved to be one of the most memorable matchups in recent history with both players showcasing not only their physical capabilities but also their mental fortitude. First Strike Tennis was able to collect some significant data from this matchup that will provide you with insights in to what is actually happening on the match court as opposed to what we think is happening. 


The data points collected include; average rally length, longest rally length, average number of shots hit per player, total number of shots, winners, unforced errors, forced errors, aces, double-faults and aggressive margins. Tennis is a complex game but dues to its individuality, prize money structure and culture we are often far behind other sports in terms of technical advancements, statistical analysis and modern innovations.
