Abstract:

This study highlights recent observations in tennis which have revealed that the head position and gaze direction during the hitting process distinguished significantly elite players (with significant results in Grand Slam tournaments) from other top players: Elite players spent more time tracking the ball and fix the contact zone (or hitting zone) throughout the hitting action. These characteristics of elite players provide the basis for a simplified hitting model which emphasizes the fixation on the contact zone until the end of the follow-through.
