By: Peter D. McCraw

Introduction & Background
The study investigated the connection between outcome type, percentage of point outcomes and court
surface. The intended use of the study is to assist in the tactical development of junior tennis players.


The study was conducted at the 2007 Australian Open (Hard Court – Rebound Ace), Roland Garros
(Clay Court) and Wimbledon (Grass Court) Championships.
Henin Forehand

Women’s Singles Main Draw matches were charted over the duration of each tournament. Matches
were selected at random. Table 1.1 illustrates the sample size collected at each event.

The last two shots of each point were recorded to identify the point outcome rule.
Each point outcome rule was classified by outcome type. The three categories were: Winner (W),
Unforced Error (UF) and Forced Error (F).
