August 6, 2015
The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has teamed up with SAP to create a new analytics software that gives coaches access to real-time performance data during live match play.
SAP Tennis Analytics will allow players and coaches to access in-match data to help analyze performance and optimize strategy.
“The WTA and SAP Tennis Analytics is a game-changer that will not only enhance our athletes’ preparation and performance but also the fans’ experiences when watching women’s tennis,” WTA CEO and Chairman Stacey Allaster said.
“Analyzing data is fundamental to player and coach development, and this state-of-the-art technology, which more and more of our performers are now using, will take our sport to a new and exciting level and lead the way in sports technology.”
Quentin Clark, SAP’s Chief Technology Officer said: “Our relationship with the WTA is another example of how SAP collaborates with partners to create ground-breaking solutions that change the way athletes utilize data and information to optimize their performance.”
