iTUSA Match Analysis Produces More Amazing Results
In our October newsletter, there was an article about the success of June Lee, a rising star in iTUSA’s Player Development program. If you missed this article, you can read it here. At the end of September, June entered the Copa Mangu Tournament in the Dominican Republic and lost her quarterfinal match against Alanna Wolff by a score of 2-6, 1-6. Approximately five weeks later, she won 6-2, 6-1 in a rematch against Wolff in the Round of 16 at the South Carolina ITF Tournament. What is the explanation of this quick, dramatic turnaround? It was a combination of great coaching and a powerful new tennis tool – iTUSA’s Match Analysis Service.
A Great Analysis Combined With Great Coaching Equals Success
iTUSA’s Match Analysis Service isn’t meant to replace a tennis coach. It is true that the output video and statistics of the Match Analysis are easy enough for anyone to understand. However, to get the full benefit, a coach can create a specific training program and gameplan based on his/her professional interpretation of the analysis. In June’s case, footage of the first match was given to iTUSA’s professional video staff. Using this video, they were able to build an analysis – click here to view the entire analysis. This is a Level 1 Analysis, which tallies winners vs. unforced errors and presents them in the order of most-frequent to least-frequent. This allows anyone to clearly see where a match was won or lost. June’s coach, iTUSA’s founder Rafael Font de Mora, used the analysis to formulate a training plan and to write this gameplan email to June just before the second match. The results speak for themselves.

Ordinary Match Video Becomes Valuable Information
