Filter smart, play smarter with the Wingfield connected court
Thanks to artificial intelligence, Wingfield’s video analysis tools are able to filter entire matches according to specific shots, sequences and playing patterns. After a recorded match, you can use the Wingfield app to display only the most important moments, saving you valuable time during your match analysis.
For truly dedicated tennis players, being able to analyse your game is a key aspect of enjoyment and success. You are always striving to find out what didn’t go so well and what can be done better next time. So imagine the opportunities if we could watch our own practise and matches whenever we wanted and have the ability to analyse our game…
Without the hassle of trying to film yourself, Wingfield always gives you an easy way to spontaneously record entire matches. Wingfield goes beyond conventional video analysis tools. The Wingfield app utilises the video recorded by the static video cameras on court combined with intelligent AI processes that get the most out of your recordings.
The system understands what is happening on the court, identifies special sequences in the match – such as winners, aces or net attacks – recognizes the different types of shots, tracks speeds and automatically counts the result in the background. Each individual video sequence is enriched with additional information that makes later navigation within the recordings more user-friendly.
After a match on the Wingfield Court, all data is synchronized with the app and your user account. Instead of having to scroll through long recordings to find certain match situations or to find sources of errors on your own, Wingfield helps you out.
Use the skip pauses feature to automatically hide idle time between points. With the smart controls of the video player, you can easily filter match videos according to certain criteria. The player selection determines whether the respective filter is applied to you or your opponent.
For example, only show your errors in the match. Was your footwork bad on the backhand side or did your forehand get tight? The video-based feedback highlights possible reasons for losing points. You’ll quickly notice that you’re developing a better understanding of what you could optimize next time.
Focus on Filters (example)
Filter your video according to certain patterns – like Return+1 – and check if your returns had good depth to put the opponent under pressure. Do you bring enough variety into your shots and do you take the necessary risks to take the ball early and play aggressively down the line?
Among the pros, over 60% of the points are decided within 0-4 shots. In the amateur level, it is no different. Therefore, it can be beneficial to focus on how the player opens the rally. Use the Serve+1 filter to see if you can mix up your serves appropriately to exploit your opponents specific weaknesses. Opening the court – meaning serve out wide with the following shot down the line – is an effective way of either quickly trying to win the point or at least putting the opponent in a difficult situation.
With the filter ‘Defensive Plays’, you will see all rallies in which you may have played (too) cautiously. Did you get pushed back too far, giving your opponent easy ways to win points
