Developed by #Israeli military veterans who adapted technology used to train their country’s fighter pilots, #Playsight’s #SmartCourt technology records players via six fully automated high-definition on-court cameras and then crunches the numbers for instant analysis at an interactive touch-screen kiosk.
The fifth-seeded #Romanian has improved her serve by lowering her ball toss after her coach, #DarrenCahill, introduced SmartCourt video and analytics technology in practice in March.
During practice in #IndianWells, #California in March, #Cahill used SmartCourt to show #Halep comparisons in serve speed, spin rates and serve placement between the old ball toss and the new one.
The changes have paid off as Halep, a former #FrenchOpen finalist, promptly won two clay-court titles in #Madrid and #Bucharest, reached the #Wimbledon quarterfinals and tuned up for the #US Open by winning #Montreal.
