Winning 80%+ 1st Serve Points
Our sport is cyclical in nature. Trends occur over time, and playing styles tend to come and go. New technology and different court surfaces have a part to play here, which in turn drives the strategic chess moves and counter-moves that players make to find a critical edge against opponents.
The best players in our game used to be the biggest servers. In other words, if you had a big first serve, you were an apex predator in our sport. Today, it's more about the 2nd serve.
