From serve speeds to rally counts, to points and return of serve percentages, tennis is undoubtedly a game of numbers. Each stat and data point tells a unique story, and for two weeks every August and September, IBM technologies help to bring the digits of tennis to life at U.S. Open tournament in New York City’s Flushing Meadows.
SI.com partnered with IBM to bring readers data-driven visualizations, created by Aragorn, that help fully tell each story at the 2014 U.S. Open. How do the players fare depending on their in-game position? What country has the most U.S. Open wins? Why is return of service such a critical skill? The real-time analytics and statistics of over 41 million data points provide new ways -- for both players and fans -- to look at the game and evaluate the odds of winning a match.
