Tennis players have a variety of support staff to assist their preparation for matches - coaches, hitting partners, physios, and sometimes more besides.
However, most seemingly lack preparation from an analytics perspective, not knowing how to approach various parts of matches, be it early or late in sets, in early or late sets of the match, or whether their opponent is strong or weak as a front-runner. These are just several examples of ways that analytics can help coaches determine game-plans to beat their opponents, not to mention the way that this information can help Tennis commentators and bettors.
Tennis has been slow to adopt analytics to assist players, and players that use this information, as well as managing their schedules quantitatively, will benefit hugely.
With this in mind, I prepared a full dossier below on Radek Stepanek (data correct at 3rd September 2014) to illustrate how much information you can get on all ATP and WTA players.
To order player dossiers, please use the right-hand links, and specify the players you require to be analysed. As dossiers are created after orders, please allow a little time for them to be sent. I will endeavour to get all sent within 48 hours, and almost always much quicker.
