LoveCourts: “GET MORE GAME”

Written by: Mario Filipas

__________

Tennis is a game everyone who is reading this loves. We love watching the best in the game and then we dream of bringing their game to the court when we play.

Of course, the vast majority of us may never reach that level of tennis. However we could ask ourselves: why can’t every tennis player enjoy the game as it’s played by the pros? Why do most of us struggle to find great tennis partners that will challenge and push us to greater heights? Why can’t we enjoy the benefits of taking part in tournaments and rankings that last throughout the year? Why can’t you be the person ranked #1 in your age bracket at your local tennis court?

Mobile technology with LoveCourts makes this a reality.

LoveCourts aggregates every tennis result on each tennis court and automatically creates a ranking based on the match results you, and others, have played on that very tennis court. Suddenly the game of tennis becomes, well, a game.

By recording your tennis results including partner name, score and location, LoveCourts will instantly let you know that:

  • you are ranked #3 at your local tennis court and #16 in your city
  • players Roger and Pete are ranked #2 and #1 respectively on your home court… and you can challenge them
  • you are the record holder for longest winning streak on this court
  • you have a 4 and 6 record against your primary tennis rival

LoveCourts will engage you in tennis like never before. Aim to improve your game by setting and achieving goals – winning streaks, epic matches, matches played in a month and even sponsored matches. You can even track your gear and find out what gear works best for you.

You can sign up for LoveCourts now and be among the first to play the game again like your first time (www.lovecourts.com).

A deeper dive into second serve statistics

The two most widely reported second serve statistics in professional tennis are the number of double faults a player hit, and their second serve winning percentage. If we’re trying to understand the effectiveness of a particular player’s second serve, relying only on those statistics has significant drawbacks. Article by Michal Kokta.

Update on UK Tennis Situation with Master Louis Cayer

I would like to share a mindset I instil in all the players I coach, one I believe has greatly influenced all of the player’s performances; “whatever happens, I can handle it.” This mindset is achieved through a systematic, tactical development process, so that whoever the opponent, whatever the surface, regardless of the environment, or scoring, the players can, and will rise to the challenge as it is presented.
