Shot charts in tennis.

During the Australian Open this year I wrote an article for tennismash.com about the use of shot charts in tennis. Below is the intro paragraph to the article:

Shot charts are critical in understanding a player’s on court behaviour. They have become commonplace in other sports like the NBA and Soccer and are now used frequently in tennis to map shot patterns from particular areas of the court. These patterns are of particular interest to coaches and players for pre and post match tactical analysis. Here we present 2,443 shots from Kei Nishikori that were played over a period of 6 months in 2014–15 against opponents like Federer, Djokovic, Murray and Wawrinka.
