ATP Top 10 = 2nd Serve Prowess
Which component of our game is most closely linked to becoming an ATP Top 10 player?
Well, 2nd serves of course! I looked at all players ranked in the Top 10 in the 2016 season, then counted how many of them were also ranked in the leading 10 players in each tactical category. There were more Top 10 players in the Top 10 of second serve points won than any other category.
I hope that gets your attention!
There were six Serve categories, three Returning, and four Under Pressure areas analyzed.
- Six of the Top 10 players in the world also featured in the Top 10 in Second Serve Points Won.
