  • How Craig O’Shannessy brings the analytics revolution to tennis
  • Craig O’Shannessy grew up like any other young tennis fanatic. He would run home from school each day, then run to the courts so he could get in as much play as possible before the sun set. There were plenty of courts, including 25 made of grass, in his hometown of Albury, Australia. The city of 47,000 in New South Wales was small, but it loomed large in tennis history. Margaret Court and Dianne Fromholtz honed their world-class games there. And while the great Australian tennis empire built by the country’s Davis Cup captain, Harry Hopman, had begun its decline by
