Amazon.com: 4.3 out of 5 stars 3 reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars A clear and concise exposition 21 Feb. 2014
By Robert Schewior - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authors do an outstanding job of demonstrating the use of both less and more sophisticated tools to analyze some standard cliques regarding tennis. Bravo!
3.0 out of 5 stars Tennis analytics and advanced mathematics 7 April 2016
By Graham Webster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've given this book 3 stars to highlight the fact that the book is aimed at a particular market. To quote: "the typical reader we have in mind has some knowledge of and interest in mathematics and statistics, for example, at the level of a third or fourth year undergraduate in the US college system, and of course some interest in tennis. The book should also be of interest to tennis enthusiasts with less mathematical background. Chapter 13 (the final chapter) is written especially for this audience"

I have a Masters in Applied Stats, and I found the content in chapters 1 - 12 very hard to follow. That said, I'm not mathematically fluent. For example, Chapter 6 introduces the Generalized Method of Moments, and the illustration demonstrated the value of this. However, I could not follow the idea any further once the authors went into detail, or extended the idea in subsequent chapters.

So, for a general audience, 3 stars. A mathematically literate reader would probably give it a higher rating. The authors clearly enjoy tennis; it's just a pity I couldn't understand.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best (and only) quant-based book on Tennis 26 Jun. 2015
By Elihu Feustel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Klaasen and Magnus have written a book that will appeal to fans of Tennis, as well as those interested in the mathematics of Tennis. The authors identify many myths of tennis, and subject them to rigorous statistical analysis to get an answer. Is a player only as good as his second serve? Is it an advantage to serve first? Is Women's Tennis as competitive as Men's?

The authors have published several academic articles on tennis. This presents new ideas and concepts that for the most part don't directly address gambling questions. However, the methods and approaches they use to attack problems will be of interest to anyone trying to do a precise quant-based analysis of anything in tennis.

No book on tennis comes close to this. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys watching tennis, or is considering modeling it.
