There is a press release on the official ATP tour website where the ATP and Tennis Data Innovations launch Tennis IQ – a performance analytics platform.
Tennis IQ – Bringing data to ATP professionals
ATP and Tennis Data Innovations (TDI) have announced the launch of Tennis IQ. A platform that is supposed to democratize access to cutting-edge data and insights for players on the ATP Tour.
Tennis IQ gives ATP singles players access to advanced match analytics. I have had tennis data analysts on the podcast like Fabrice Sbarro and Fred Johnsen, and I am curious if this app replaces some of their work or is an additional resource. Since I am not an ATP professional, I cannot access or review the platform, but we hope to bring you an insight of how it works in the near future through our ATP friends.
Tennis IQ is said to combine rich historical datasets and live in-match data to provide comprehensive and up-to-date insights – helping players optimize their preparation, on-court performance, and post-match analysis. Tennis Data Innovations is a joint-venture between ATP and ATP Media for the central management of data across the ATP Tour.
Ross Hutchins, ATP Chief Tour Officer, stated: “Never before have high-quality analytics been as readily available to so many players as it is with this platform. Tennis IQ will help create a level playing field across the Pepperstone ATP Rankings – enabling more players and their teams to perform at their best. It also reflects our emphasis on data innovation as a business. We’re thrilled to see Tennis IQ in action and to continue advancing the product.”
What is in Tennis IQ?
Players own performance data, like most and least successful patterns of play during matches.
Metrics like Shot Quality, in Attack, and Steal Score
The Scout section offers detailed information about upcoming opponents, such as player tendencies and patterns.
There will also be player comparisons, to see how a player stacks up against ATP averages.
David Lampitt, TDI CEO: “Tennis IQ is the latest step in our journey to unlock the power of tennis data. It brings the sport’s incredible data richness to life for players – adding another layer of analysis and strategy to the on-court action. Our investment in capturing deep data from every court across the ATP Tour has enabled the delivery of Tennis IQ and we’re going to continue pushing these capabilities even further in years to come.”
If you are an ATP player reading this, I would love to hear if you use this or not. Off or on the record.
