Service issue

Postby dadan » 03 Dec 2016, 13:39

Hi TE community,

can someone help me in setting the service? For example, if I need to have an average 1st service of 190 km/h and a 1st serve probability of 57% how do I have to set service power, service precision and service consistency?
In general, how should be set these parameters to affect service values (i.e., service power of 90% to which service speed coincide?)

thanks a lot!

Hello,

=> http://www.managames.com/tennis/doc/Ten ... ml#service
Is it for AI or yourself ?
Try something like this : 77% Power / 70% Consistency / 77% Precision

Hi manutoo,

thanks a lot for your reply. I want to set the AI service. I had a look at the table and it seems me that setting power at 73% is a good calibration. If I set the consistency to the same value I should get a 70% probability of 1st serve, am I right? But, if I want to obtain a service probability smaller than 70% how should be rescaled the consistency? I mean, if the consistency is 10 pct points smaller than the service power what will be the service probability? In other terms I would like to know how the ratio service power/service consistency affect the 1st ball probability.
Moreover, in setting the service I can set the "service precision": which aspect of the service does this parameter affect?

thanks again

Lower Precision = aim more far from the lines (and maybe do a bit more faults)
There's no very precise rule for the Consistency, but lower Consistency => lower speed average ; and Consistency lower than Power by 10% might give a 1st serve in about 55%.
