Service Faults are random ?

Postby Stefan Edberg » 08 Apr 2010, 00:07

I played 2 matches against Captain Hammer (pretty good matches btw...) this evning and my serv was like two different things in those matches.. Is it random if first serv goes in or not?? I usaly have pretty good service but in first match i had about 50% in of first serv.. And in the next match i had abowe 90%.... I find that very strange cause i dident change anything for my service between the matches. Should it be in this way?

Hello,

long / net faults are random, left/right aren't.
But over a set, the percentage cannot change too much, usually, it should stick to +/- 5% around the average.

Ok i understand but why is it so big different? I mean from 50 % to 90% in.. And i dident miss so much left/right. Its so huge different so it can decide if u win or not. Is it more realistic that way or what? Maybe it should be tuned so the long/net faults aren´t random, just like left/right is.. Idk..

If you served 6 points per game, and served 3 times in the set, that's 7 more missed serves at 50% compared to 90%. If 2 were out of random, that'd be 5 missed from left/right.

Also, if you sometimes use B1 instead of B1+B2, then the % of serves in will be a bit higher.
