Loving the app ★★★★★
bby Mike___P - Version - 4.0 - Nov 19, 2014

Very impressed with this iPad/iPhone app and its "sister" PC app (which I think you'll need if you want a serious reporting/distribution capability).

Yes, the two apps are pricey, but they have been obviously carefully thought through and everyone is amazed at how much quality data (and analysis) I can accumulate in a given match. And since most of the matches I'm covering are doubles, this pretty much eliminates the competition. Again, this program overcomes most of the complexity of catching all the important elements of a doubles match and attributing appropriate characteristics to teams and individuals as appropriate - again, very well thought out.

Although fairly intuitive, this app will require a little bit of a learning curve, and some practice to keep up with the play and gather accurate data, but it gives you as much help as it can. After a little time practicing on, say, some televised matches, and then a few practice "live" matches to get the flow, you'll be busy but you can collect the data fairly comfortably.

Finally, the developer is very responsive and very helpful in answering questions. He will clearly not leave you high and dry if you're having a problem or needing a question answered. Kudo's!


Best return on investment in tennis development !!! ★★★★★
by GETJr - Version 3.6.1 - Nov 1, 2013

This is the most expensive App I have ever bought, but it is also the most valuable...by far.

If you have a child that is serious about tennis, you are probably spending thousands of dollars on equipment, private lessons, academies, court time, travel, etc. I recommend you seriously consider purchasing this App as it is the best return on a $49 investment in tennis development I have ever made....hands down!!!

ProTracker is the best app I have found for tracking tennis matches for my son who is moving up the USTA Standings in the Eastern Section. It enables HIM to objectively and accurately view his strengths and areas for improvement immediately following matches without me needing to say a word...Priceless !!!

Additionally, it allows us to share detailed information with his coaches to facilitate more effective practices. The reporting capabilities are astounding and have been extremely valuable in his development, coaching, and match planning.

The interface is simple and elegant, allowing you to watch the match while tracking important statistics with ease in real time. I watch most of his matches and this gives me a way to stay constructively engaged in his development in a very healthy way. I recommend you try using the app while watching a tennis match on TV/Internet at home, just to get a feel for how it works. You will become proficient very quickly (5-15 minutes). After a very quick setup (names, descriptive info on tournament, first server and side) you have four inputs per point:

1) where the serve lands
2) where the return lands For the shot that ends the point
3) origin point / stroke type
4) landing spot

The designer/developer had built a very effective interface that makes this process quick. There are many features built in to ease the tracking and even allow you to quickly add points and/or games if you happen to get distracted or take a break. Just by tracking those four events, you end up with a very rich data set. The App has amazing reporting capabilities enabling you to visually review shot tendencies; serving and returning placement; and winner/error ratios and locations for specific strokes. Recent version updates have included excellent advances in this already robust reporting capability that allow you to really hone in on key factors like performance on break points when up or down and many more.


This app is exactly what I've been looking for. ★★★★★
by MusicMan1024 - Version 3.4 - Jul 5, 2013

I wanted to find a good tennis stats app and this was by far the most impressive. It is very easy to use, and best of all the kids seem to really buy in to it. It makes it very easy to coach them when they have seen their own stats TV-style. I especially like the serving scatter diagrams as this is such an important area to the game. Overall, a great app, it is more expensive than others but is definitely worth the money.


Great app!!! ★★★★★
by Aemilius7 - Version 3.4 - Jun 15, 2013

Excellent app for tennis statistics and analyzing match on professional level.


Genial ★★★★
by Heinulla - Version 3.4 - Jun 10, 2013

Ich beschäftige mich als Tennistrainer und Sportlehrer schon sehr lange mit der Möglichkeit der Matchanalyse im Tennis. Diese Software ist das beste, was ich bislang dazu auf dem Markt gefunden habe. Die Eingabe ist intuitiv und schnell zu erlernen. Ich empfehle allerdings ein iPad und einen Eingabestift, um die Aufsprungpositionen des Balles bei Aufschlägen, Returns und Keyshots exakt zu bestimmen, denn das ganze funktioniert mit Touchscreen und Popup-Menüs. Einfach, schnell und durchdacht. Auch die Einbeziehung aktueller Statistikwerte wie "Aggressive Margin" sind klasse. Die Darstellung der Ergebnisse und die Auswertungsmöglichkeiten helfen mir beim Coaching und in der Nachbesprechung mit meinen Spielern sehr. Leider gibt es von mir nur vier Punkte da die Exportfunktion nicht vorhanden ist. Das ist nicht nur schade, sondern sehr ärgerlich. Zwar kann man die Ergebnisse per Mail an den Spieler etc. verschicken, allerdings muss dieser dann die Light-Version herunterladen, um die Ergebnisse ansehen zu können. Ein Export in Excel oder zumindest als PDF samt Ausdruckmöglichkeit wäre hier sinnvoll. Dies ist nur in der PC Version möglich, die allerdings noch einmal extra bezahlt werden muss. Alles in allem ist ProTracker ein tolles Programm, das mir schon sehr viele Erkenntnisse und Argumente in meinem Training bereitgestellt hat. Ich möchte es nicht mehr missen.

by Heinulla - Version 3.4 - June 10, 2013

I am working as a tennis coach and physical education teacher for a long time with the possibility of match analysis in tennis. This software is the best I've found this on the market. The input is intuitive and easy to learn. However, I recommend an iPad and a stylus to determine the bounce position of the ball on serves, returns and Keyshots precisely because the whole works with touch screen and pop-up menus. Simple, quick and sophisticated. Also, the inclusion of current statistical values such as "Aggressive Margin" are great. The presentation of the results and the analysis options help me in the coaching and debriefing with my players a lot. Unfortunately, there are only four points from me because the export function does not exist. This is not only unfortunate, but very annoying. Although you can send the results via email to the players, etc., but it must then download the Lite version to view the results. An export to Excel or PDF including at least of expression would be useful here. This is only possible in the PC version, but again must be paid. All in all ProTracker a great program, which I have provided many insights and arguments in my training. I do not want to miss.



Excellent tennis tracking app ★★★★
by Apecks77 - Version 3.3 (Match Credit) - Mar 11, 2013

Great for tracking tennis matches and reviewing statistics later. This like ball placement, double faults and unforced errors, backhand vs. forehand winners can all be tracked. I have tried all of the tennis tracking apps and for me this one is so far the best. The pricing model (pay as you use), is not even that painful.


Nice product ★★★★★
by Dun That - Version 3.2 - Jan 24, 2013

The program is excellent for the parent that wants to do more then just watch. I then send it off to our private instructor so they can prioritize the next session. Customer support is excellent.


Brilliant ★★★★★
by Parent/coach - Version 3.2 - Jan 21, 2013

Great app but you must have a bit of patience and allow time to become accustomed to do the taping to track matches. Invest 20 minutes in reading the user guide on the website. It is particularly good for taking matches through with your juniors and also for reporting to their coaches (simply send the file or just a screen shot of the statistics).


Ad scoring ★★★★
by tcobbthehearthrob - Version 3.2 - Oct 17, 2012

I love this app it has been very useful so far. My students find their tendencies to hit to certain parts of the court with the scatter diagrams and stuff. However I can't figure out how to get the no ad scoring to kick in. It doesn't seem to work


Easy to use ★★★★★
by Gerg094 - Version 3.1 - Jul 23, 2012

This is a great app. I find it tough to track the rally length and the location of the serve return. Since the serve return tracker can be turned off, problem solved. In the update the option for the coman tie-breaker needs to be added. Other than this a great app, the stats break downs are very helpful to look at with my players.


Smart app ★★★★★
by TENNISWISDOM - Version 3.1 - Apr 22, 2012

Anyone who is serious about their game looks for this type of info... This is the best app I had found that works and gives me my data.


Great app!  ★★★★★
by D1 tennis - Version 3.1 - Mar 20, 2012

I had an older version for a pda and bought this program as an app for the ipad and we love it! Really easy to learn how to use it and the info/insight that you can get instantly is extremely helpful. We use this for our division I college team all the time and all our players have really benefitted from it and have enjoyed the feedback on their matches.


Great App ★★★★★
by Doug Pielet - Version 3.1 - Jan 13, 2012

Great product! Easy to use and my students are able to visually see their errors and key shots!


VERY BEST APP ★★★★★
by Gianlu1969 - Version 3.1 - Jan 1, 2012

OTTIMA APP, L'HO UTILIZZATA PER LE PARTITE DI MIO FIGLIO, FACILE DA UTILIZZARE, OTTIMO OUTPUT PER LE ANALISI STATISTICHE DEL MATCH, REALE COME QUELLE DEI PRO!
VERY BEST APP ★★★★★
by Gianlu1969 - Version 3.1 - Jan 1, 2012

GREAT APP, I HAVE USED FOR THE GAMES OF MY SON, EASY TO USE, GOOD OUTPUT FOR THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE MATCH, THE KIND OF REAL PRO!

Tennis tracking flexibility ★★★★★
by Gloucestershire 1 - Version 3.1 - Dec 24, 2011

Prior to using tracking software, I used to track manually and then have to re-type into a spreadsheet. This kind of limited the point of tracking as my duaghter wanted to see her performance stright away so she could adapt for her next match. Whilst this is the first tennis tracking app I have bought, I have found this app to be really user friendly and flexible as her game develops


Awesome charting tool ★★★★★
by Buckeye Tennis 79 - Version 3.1 - Nov 21, 2011

I have been looking at this app for quite some time, and I'm glad I finally bought it. It is a little more expensive than others but I find it to be well worth it. Even though it is very detailed, it is quite simple to use. I especially like being able to see the diagram of shots on the court. This feature puts this app heads and shoulders above other statistical charting apps.


Most complete program available ★★★★★
by Mpk2007 - Version 3.0 - Oct 17, 2011

I originally purchased this software over 8 years ago for a Windows mobile device (this company has been around for a while). It Is the best software by far for serious stats on tennis matches to help you spot areas to improve. I just repurchased it for the iPhone/iPad platform. They care about their product, respond to emails quickly and will be in business two years from now. I have no connection with the company, but appreciate the service and product improvements through the years.


Best One Out There ★★★★
by JukiDog - Version 3.0 - Oct 14, 2011

Only mobile app I found that allows you to record location of shots. Works well and gets the job done. Expensive compared to other apps, but it only amounts to the cost of a single tennis lesson, which seems fair given the value of the data this app can gather. A few minor quips. Could improve on workflow when matches get screwed up (e.g. Serving from wrong side of court after sets, scoring mistakes). Feel like I am fighting with the app once things go awry with the match and usually give up once this happens. Can't seem to edit match data once it is started (e.g. Player names, tournament info, court surface). Comments display strangely in momentum chart. Hard to read them once a few are entered. Graphics in app could be improved.


Tennis mom ★★★★★
by 10S Mom - Version 2.1 - Jun 20, 2011

There is a learning curve in the beginning. It is intuitive and easy once you get the hang of it. You touch where the racquet was, what kind of shot, where it landed, and what shot outcome was like winner, forced error, etc. Worth the $50!! it is an amazing program. You get faster with practice and you need to stay with it to get proficient. Then you just need a good viewing seat to the match. Extremely helpful to players, parents, and coaches. Love the stats and scatter diagrams!


Superb ★★★★★
by Calv101 - Version 2.1 - Jun 12, 2011

The best match tracker out there bar none!

Great app. As a tennis parent, I would not be without it.


Best charting software on the market ★★★★★
by Andy Wild, Carmel, IN - Version 1.2 - Apr 30, 2010

I have been charting tennis matches for years and can honestly say this is the best product I've ever seen (and used) for charting matches. It is perfect for tennis parents because it takes the subjectivity (and much of the stress) out of watching your child play. It can be easily emailed to their coach immediately afterward for analysis. Once you gather enough data, it is great to access opponents' strengths and weaknesses for future reference. Coaches would bebefit as well because they can analyze a student's performance without necessarily having to be at every one of their student's matches. Finally, the players themselves benefit because they can see (in black & white) their performance without all the drama/emotion. I've used the windows mobile version of this product for the past few years and it was a hassle having a separate piece of hardware to run this software. Now it is not only easier to use (touch screen vs stylus pen), but more importantly, it is only fifty bucks! That's cheaper than a one hour tennis lesson and the benefits are far greater. There are cheaper apps out there, but you'll be much much happier with this one. Try the lite version...it's a free demo.

I've been using Protracker on other platforms for years and I couldn't wait till it made it to the iPhone. I've tried the other apps and they are either too difficult to use or lacks features. Protracker is the most logical and easy to use match charting app. It included a terrific reporting tool that runs on a pc. It does cost extra but if you are serious about match charting, it is worth every penny.

 
  Other Testimonials
 

The application is phenomenal! My daughter was amazed at the amount of analysis available - she probably spent 45 minutes going through the data and, more importantly, came away with some insights that she will work on in her next match. Scott.

 

We thought ProTracker was the best app out there to use for tracking matches. We used it on numerous occasions at Mississippi State on our iPads, in dual match play and in the NCAA tournament. If someone is looking for an app to stat matches, this one is definitely worth the money over some of the less expensive products.

I really love the program on my iPhone. It has been fantastic. Thanks,  Jim Flower, Columbus, OH

 

Thank you! This app rocks!  Derek Gonzales

As a coach I have now used ProTracker Tennis for over 5 years at the junior level, the early professional stages and now the collegiate level in the United States. Using the statistics provided by ProTracker Tennis is one of the best teaching tools a coach can use.  Roeland Brateanu, Assistant Men's Tennis Coach at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA

I LOVE PROTRACKER and do not want to settle for Anything less. Yours is the best by far!! I have Searched and searched for others and none compare.  Allen

As far as my experience with ProTracker Tennis, I use it in order to keep statistics when I play matches in my tennis league.  I'll set up a video camera and film myself and then replay and record the results on ProTracker.  It's much easier to keep track of my progress that way. Thanks again, Rick

Ive had the program for three years and love it.    Duke Women's Tennis

I've been using protracker to help my kids. It takes the subjectiveness out of my feedback and has helped me to convince my kids on their stregths and weaknesses. Most of the time they don't believe me but will believe in the protracker stats! Its simple to use. Mark Melbourne, Australia.

 

This is a critical tool for any parent or coach. It has helped me help my kids and give their coaches the information they need to improve their game. Metrics are critical for measuring progress. Tracking just wins and losses is not enough.  Since luck is where preparation meets opportunity, ProTracker Tennis is invaluable when helping to prepare for and measuring the opportunity.

John Wydra, North Carolina, US

 

I have used ProTracker for some time now to track my 18 year old daughters progress, she plays wheelchair tennis and at this moment she is ranked 10 in the world. ProTracker has been a great tool for showing her the stats to help her improve her game. I would recommend it to anyone who plays or coaches the game its a wonderful bit of kit.  Keith Whiley, UK

 

ProTracker is the best tennis charting software I have ever used. It provides me with up to date stats about all my players. It is a massively important part in helping me give objective feedback to all my players and parents after matches.

After 3 years of use I'm a still using it on a weekly basis. This has allowed me to build up a huge library of data about each player, as well as important information about potential opponents.

I love it!   Edward Isard, Abingdon UK

I have now been using the ProTracker software heavily for about 6 months. It has been very easy to use and has made communicating my son's performance during a match very clear and based on the data not perception. Now when he comes off the court the first thing he does is ask for the handheld to review the stats! It has also made him more aware on court of trends in his and his opponents play. He used to come off the court with pure guesses of errors/winners/serve percentage. Now he is often very close to his actual performance which has helped his game tremendously. Thanks for a great teaching/training tool!
Tim Gornet, Kentucky


ProTracker Tennis is a must for any tennis parent, very easy to use and the stats are just like you see on the TV when the commentators are discussing the pro's game. The Iphone application is a fantastic addition. I am now able to send valuable factual information to my daughter's coach for professional analysis. Thank you ProTracker.  Enzo Mora, Gloucester UK.

So glad the iPhone version of ProTracker is out.  I have compared the new similar apps for the Iphone and they don’t measure up to ProTracker. 

ProTracker Tennis is the single best tennis match tracking software available! My son plays USTA Juniors Tournaments and we had been looking for a software program that we could use to track his matches plus be able to use as a training guide.  ProTracker fits both bills.  After each match we can’t wait to get home and synch up the PDA with our PC and print out the fantastic reports.
We have been using it for almost a year now. It paid for itself in the first tournament.
Clayton Taylor, Fayetteville, AR

I use this software now a few month and it is great. Not only after the match, but also during the match, you can give objective feed back to your player. It's a great help to develop your player to the next level, because he or she gets a better (objective) view of the game. Thank you for making this.
André de Mos, tennis teacher in the Netherlands

It is working great! I have had a lot of people who were amazed! It helped me a lot with the game and the training of my daughter. THANKS! Henk Bakker, NL

I just want to say that I am thoroughly happy and pleased with ProTracker... it has consistently exceeded my expectations, and is the leading product in its field.

...we love the programme by the way...it's central to our coaching programme...as they say awareness is the first stage of change
Peter Di Carlo-Coniglio - Bristol UK

By the way; I must complement your customer support. I have asked many questions over the year-or-so that I've owned your product, and you always respond promptly, and with accurate information. Kudos!
Lin Ford, Tampa Florida

I have used the program for quite some time now. It is great. Very often after one of my players matches before we speak I make them review the Stats then come and talk to me. The discussion then has so much more substance.
"Coach Nic" Askew, Junior Outreach Director
Prince George's Tennis and Education Foundation, Washington DC
 

By the way, I just wanted to say that I have found your product to be very useful and exciting for my players to see match results. Yesterday we had a flighted tournament between three colleges. I tracked a set for each of the other schools and printed the results for them. The two coaches were amazed at what they saw. I showed them both the pocket pc and the laptop where they could see the flow of the match. Allen Jackson, Berea College, Kentucky

My son just won the Surbiton U10 Open. I cant say it is solely down to ProTracker but he certainly takes more interest in the post match analysis and now works on areas of weakness.
Marc Hendriks, Clive Asprey Tennis Academy, Guildford UK

This software is exactly what I've been looking for. I researched many other programs for months and found ProTracker to be the easiest to use but would also give me an excellent amount of information from each match.  It is also the only software I've found which does stats for doubles.  Not only is the software great but the customer service is excellent - any questions I had were answered extremely quick.
Melburn Brown, Head Pro, Hallbrook CC  USA

I have been using ProTracker for over a year now and I think that it is one of the most valuable tools a coach or a parent can have. Thank you again and congratulations on this amazing product. Fernando Martinez, Boca Raton

Coaching a High School Boys Varsity Tennis team is always a challenge. Having the ProTracker software has enabled me to keep reliable statistics from the matches from which I can design practices around the parts of the game which need to be improved. The software is easy to use and the reports are easy to interpret. The computer-savvy generation of teenagers trust the computer generated reports more than anything done by pencil and paper. Overall it is a great piece of software that has benefited our program tremendously.
Paula Gentry - Woodward Academy, GA.

Fantastic software, easy to use and a very effective feedback tool.

I researched the internet to find a good tennis stats program and this was by far the most impressive. It is very easy to use, and best of all the kids seem to really buy in to it. It makes it very easy to coach  them when they have seen their own stats on the computer. I especially  like the serving scatter diagrams as this is such an important area to  the game. I have statted lots of matches, and over time I like to  compare matches against the same opponent to see where the improvements  have been made. Overall, a great program, highly recommended.  Chris Johnson, Hills Road High Performance Centre, Cambridge, UK

My son of 14 is now playing full time and your software is a very valuable training tool. He now looks at the stats and really knows what went on. Pre software days he would get caught up in the emotion of the match which could easily blind him to the facts.

In my career as a professional coach I've had a lot of problems with players who made a lot of unforced errors, because they want to make winning shots from very difficult situations, instead of playing, for example semi-high and crossing balls.  After using ProTracker Tennis I resolved with my players a lot of tactical and mental problems during practice and tournaments. It is also perfect for travelling coaches, because you can store all the important information from each match - and after returning home you can show  to the player's personal coach or parent or to the club directors a report showing exactly what happened during each match and why he/she lost or won particular matches in the tournament.

Protracker Tennis is most useful for analyzing performance and monitoring areas needing improvement in my daughter's tennis game. Being so easy to use and download allows us to quickly review match statistics and discuss various issues with her coach.

The software is excellent - it has aspects which are very complimentary to my coaching.  I was impressed with the return of serve and the replay feature which I used recently for one of my players to highlight reasons why he lost his fixture.  More notably it helped him to visualize what I was saying so that he could put it into practice for his next match.  In North Queensland where it is constantly sunny I find the black / white feature a real asset, no more shielding or tilting my device to see the screen.  Good product before, even better product now

At Radford University we are recruiting more players with national and world rankings, and finding that few have had extensive match charting done of their competitions.

This is exactly what I was looking for to track matches for my two daughters....and although I have seen many folks tracking by hand, I have not seen anyone doing it like this.

Just a quick story...  Lately my son has really been on a roll playing some good tennis.  However, he has not been able to close out the big match.  I try to always be supportive and encourage him instead of telling him what he did wrong and why he lost.  After some time has passed I'll ask him what he thought made the difference in the match and he'll say something like it just wasn't my day etc.  Of course I knew it usually boils down to too many unforced errors.  However, hearing it from Dad usually doesn't carry too much weight.  After this last match, he and I went to lunch and we were talking about the match and I just gave him the HP Ipaq and let him look at the stats.  All of a sudden his mouth dropped open and he said in disbelief, "I had 49 unforced errors?"  He filtered by shot and saw that almost all of them were sailing just long.  He's getting stronger and swinging harder.  So at the next match, I watched his strokes closely and could see that he is not coming over the top of the ball to generate the extra spin needed to keep the ball in play.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, great product!    Jay Hardy, Suwanee, Georgia

Just got back from my daughter's match and ProTracker was awesome!!  I will have to practice to keep up with points but I can't wait to print out the reports and analyze them on my pc.  Everyone was really impressed at the tournament by be using a handheld to track a match.

The software is performing great. It is incredibly useful to me and my students.

Something else you may be interested in is I recently attended the French open, and I charted Andrew Murray, and the statistics I got from the match were exactly the same as those done by IBM at the tournament. Which was great, the software is great.

I have been using Pro Tracker Tennis now for about a year and have found it most helpful, it's great and I can't work without it.
Adam Malarsk, Weston Tennis Center, FL

Almost a year ago I purchased the program. It is working great! I have had a lot of people who were amazed!  It helped me a lot with the game and the training of my daughter. THANKS!
Henk Bakker, Netherlands

So far so good....I downloaded the full versions and they look (and work) great...much, much better than the ACE program that I was using, a lot more user friendly.  Andy Wild
. . .
I've tracked 116 matches so far:  78 of one of my daughter's matches and 38 on the other daughter's. I continue to show junior coaches and college coaches the product.  Interesting success story:  Courtney played a girl over Christmas in Pheonix, AZ at Winter Nationals and I was able to chart the match.  Just a couple of weeks ago, Courtney drew the same girl in the first round of the USTA National Hardcourts in San Diego, CA - the biggest tournament of the summer.  My wife was with Courtney and I was back home.  I texted Courtney a few shapshots of the "plots" of where the girl ended points. The girl ended points 4 to 1 off the forehand side.  I told Courtney to obviously play the backhand.  I also was able to recall from the charting that the girl loved pace and the turning point of the first match was when Courtney mixed up the pace.  The first match went 3 sets with my daughter being down a set and 1-4, but she came back and pulled it out.  The second time she played the girl (armed with Pro Tracker data) she won 6-2 6-2.  Andy Wild

I've been using ProTracker for quite awhile (eight months now), and I have to say that it is positively the most complete package that I've seen.  Congratulations!  The code is stable; the features are just what I need to chart matches.
I started off not tracking serve returns, but in the last 6 months have changed that.  Today, I'm charting things quite accurately, and really appreciate certain touches, such as the summary display on changeovers.  Again, well thought out stuff!
The results have really helped my daughter (age 14) get calibrated about what her strengths and weaknesses are.  I never show her the results right after the match.  It's too intimidating (especially if she's lost).  I usually give back some quick stats (important ones) and then do a full review the next day after the emotion dies down.
The Doubles part is great... the fact that you chart each player separately is really, really helpful.  My daughter and her partner are currently ranked 8th nationally.  So, with those stakes, charting also helps keep the doubles partner's coach (and parents) calibrated with what's happening, not just the players.
Peter Nance, Austin Texas

I've been using Pro Tracker since its first release when I started traveling with players for greater lengths of time and at higher level Satellite events. For some of my players ranked 125 in the world or the comp players blind to the true reason for the result in the match it is a fantastic tool.

It is not only great so players can take ownership of their performance, but it keeps a great record of their performance and tactics against players to be recalled for a pre match strategy any time in the near or far future.

It is great to help players recall as you analyze how the match went in their head and certain stages and point situations. Much better than video for this using the replay function and players giving their own feel verbally of what happened instead of pictures filling in the story!

The reporting function on the PC version is outstanding as well as the ability to blow things up like the momentum Graf on the big screen but sending PDF of the match report is a great function. Also to have my coaches or parents traveling with student on tour email me their pro tracker stats for me to report on from the other side of the world or from court 1 at our Tennis center!

The ability to have it on a few of my touch screen devices allows me to take these stats on my phone or at home on my IPad watching a video of my players match adding further to the convenience of it.

An outstanding product and a must for coaches of any player serious in development of their match play.

I congratulate you for putting together the best low cost charting software on the market.
Robert Wojcik, Program Director, WIGWAM TENNIS

Dear ProTracker, I have been using your tracking software for several years and felt it was time to give you my feedback. My daughter plays competitive tennis in Florida, USA where the depth of competition is very tough. Having the ability to analyze a match both during, and after, has proven well worth the investment in both the mobile, and PC versions.

We have had several matches that have gone to third sets. so I am able to discuss strategy with her after the 2nd set. In these instances she may not know what is going wrong, and needs some hard facts to prove my observations. When I show her the winner/unforced error ratios between the set she won, and lost, she is able to calm down and “clean up” her game. This has saved valuable time previously wasted in trying to justify my advice. We can also do a quick analysis of her opponent’s winners/errors on forehand, and backhand, to decide which side to pick on for the third set.


Another benefit is the pre-match analysis when facing an opponent in the database of matches. Being able to see where the ball lands is incredibly valuable if you look for things like where they will go on second serve, or on big points. To be able to say with confidence that my player can expect 85% of second serves to be to the forehand, allows her to more effectively attack that shot. If you know that your opponent will hit first serves wide on game point or break point, you have a big advantage over players that are trying to find patterns while they play.

Lastly, I must comment on the value of being able to send entire matches to her coach. I bought the PC version for me, and the coach, so that I can email him the data from matches he cannot attend. He has told me that being able to view all this information right on his monitor, has enabled him to craft the next week’s training to address specific issues that may not have been considered otherwise. All players perform differently in competition than in practice, so the coach needs to see performance under pressure, as well. Your program’s detail allows that better than any other I have seen.

Thank you for creating a program that has made a positive difference in our daughter’s game.

Using the program and I find it extremely useful. Not only in my coaching training in terms of guidelines, but also as direct assistance with the players training. It is always easier to show a player after a match or training, you see, this is how you play, where you served, where and how you returned. With ProTracker have "evidence" about what, together with the players analyzed, and the actual arguments for further work. Players have become much more aware of their games, the advantages and disadvantages. with time begin to understand better tennis at multiple levels and their approach to training is therefore more serious.
