For a player's situational performance analysis, the basic and most utilitarian indicator of game quality is simply the achieved result on a particular sports competition. The basic aim of this research study is to find to what extent the indexes and variables directly derived from the results of individual table tennis games can predict the indexes that are described by the final result of an individual in a larger number of individual table tennis games. The research involved an analysis of an intentional sample of 914 table tennis players competing in various recreational table tennis leagues in SOKAZ during 2006. The predictive value of the indicators used has been determined, for the prognosis of direct indicators of success. Results have shown that correlations between individual variables of a table tennis competitor's efficiency are statistically significant, just as correlations between indexes of a table tennis competitor's efficiency. Positive and significant correlations were found between all the direct and indirect indicators of a player's efficacy. The correlation between individual variables and indexes of a table tennis competitor's efficiency, with the total efficacy index, is statistically significant and mostly positive. Indexes and variables directly derived from the results can, to a statistically significant degree, predict indexes and variables of final competition success: game index, set index, games won and sets won.
