If you talk to most people about their strengths and weaknesses in tennis, they’ll say something like “I hate my backhand.” But when you study the match court and the data, you find that strengths and weaknesses aren’t so simple.

I want to challenge you to think deeper about strengths and weaknesses in tennis and how they should dictate your strategy.

In this episode, we’ll analyze why the way you think about strengths and weaknesses needs to change. I’ll also discuss a simple framework for finding an opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. Tennis Analytics collected over 1400 points of doubles data to help us review what the strength and weakness are for the average 3.5/4.0 USTA player.
