Briefing: Placement Map

The placement map is an integral part of our shot analysis - you can access it in the session summary of every playing mode. Here you can find out more about its features. πŸ“²

Take a closer look at the accuracy of your shots with the placement map. In free play, it helps you to monitor the achievement of your exercise goals. In match analyses, it is an excellent instrument to evaluate playing patterns or tactics. Its diverse functions open up a whole range of new and exciting information.

These information are provided by the Placement Map

The upper half of the playing field always shows the impact points of the activated player. The various functions provide you with a wide range of exciting information that goes beyond the simple impact points of your strokes.

  • Impact points of your shots: In the default setting, the exact point of impact is displayed for every shot in a session.

☝🏼By the way: White dots indicate all balls in the field. Shots that have gone out of bounds are coloured red. Balls that went into the net are marked red with a white x.

  • Relative distribution of impact points: Click on the field to display the relative distribution of all shot in pre-defined zones. 

⚠️Attention: All OUT zones as well as the IN zones add up to 100%. The values thus indicate the separate distribution of balls in the field and out.

  • Shot position: The position of the player during the shot. By clicking on the lower half of the playing field, you can switch between all or the currently selected shot. 
  • Shot speeds: The corresponding speeds are displayed for each shot.

Filter the displayed data

Navigation within the placement map is based on two levels. With the shot filter, you first determine which shots should be shown at the bottom. While you can choose between rallies, serves, groundstrokes or volleys in free play and drill, this selection is supplemented by the placement of your returns in matches.

☝🏼By the way: The rallies filter shows you all the rallies of the entire session.

πŸ’‘Tip: Use the set filter in Matches if you want to further refine your analysis at this level. Swipe the screen down and select the sets to be taken into account.

Navigate in the Placement Map

Further navigation is done via the control panel at the bottom of the screen. It provides you with information on each individual shot. All shots are displayed chronologically in the control panel.

⚠️Attention: Always keep in mind which filter (shot and set filter) you have set at the top.

Swipe left and right to navigate between the shots. The corresponding impact point for the selected shot pulsates briefly on the map. 

☝🏼By the way:The connecting lines between the individual shots in the panel symbolise the points of impact of a closed rally. Note that only the shots of the selected player are displayed.

Swipe up the panel to display another filter level. For example, switch to the view of your teammate. Depending on the shot filter, you also have the option to show only forehands and backhands (shot filter: groundies) or the ad or deuce side (shot filter: serves). Pro members can view a selected shot directly in the video via the play symbol.

πŸ’‘Tip: In drills, the placement map is another way to get the actual speeds of your shots in addition to the speed scores. For exercises that deviate from the defined drill exercise, use the Free Play. Here you can perfectly control your exercise goals (precision, speed).

πŸ’‘Tip: Use the placement map in matches to evaluate the distribution of your serves in the different zones. It is also a great tool for qualitative error analysis. Use the corresponding filters to display only your returns in the second set, for example, and navigate in the control panel to the balls that went out or into the net (marked as red dots). By clicking on the play symbol, you can directly view the selected shot in the video.
