Literature Review: Tennis problem for Sports

This “Ten Problems for Sports in the 2020s” booklet will introduce ten relevant problems, namely: coaches, performance, fundamentals, match fixing, politics, talent development, diversity, education, economics, e-sports; for the ten most popular sports in the 2020s world, as for estimated fans number: soccer, cricket, basketball, hockey, tennis, volleyball, table tennis, baseball, American football / rugby, golf.

Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the sports that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. soccer,
  2. cricket,
  3. basketball,
  4. hockey,
  5. tennis,
  6. volleyball,
  7. table tennis,
  8. baseball,
  9. american football / rugby,
  10. golf.

Each sport has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references for each open question and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

CONCLUSIONS — Tennis coaches characterize Gen Z athletes (born after 1996) as having excellent technology skills, high expectations for success, short attention spans, poor communication skills, and an inability to deal with adversity. The seeded players in Grand Slam tournaments outperform the non-seeded players in serve and return, break point, net point, and efficiency-related indicators. Tennis 10 system was created to allow children to learn and play in an environment suitable for them. Divergences between market odds and predictions coming both from sports models and from direct predictions of odds based on in-play events may signal suspicious betting activity for tennis matches. Tennis in the propaganda system of the USSR was not in the Communist Party’s favour at all as a bourgeois, not a socialist kind of sport. Tennis players seek to refine their technique in order to address an ‘attenuated’ movement pattern perceived as causing a competitive disadvantage. The interview rhetoric of several female tennis players implies the struggle to find an equilibrium between their athletic embodiment and conventional femininity. When compared to the traditional tennis teaching methods, the differential learning method is more useful and the learning is more permanent. Facial symmetry plays a positive role for female tennis matches viewership while there is no significant effect for male tennis. The competition “Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas” will take place from Saturday, March 21, 2020 to June 6, 2020 and is open to any individual aged of at least 16 years old.
