As a former professional tennis player and current television analyst, you need to prepare a scouting report for an upcoming tournament. Select either two men's or women's singles or men's or women's doubles from the current list on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) or the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) websites. Once two players or doubles teams are determined, write a 750-1,000-word report that analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the players. The report may include either quantitative or qualitative data, or both, based on the following areas:

  1. Technique – describe the strengths and weaknesses of groundstrokes, serve, return, volley, and overhead.
  2. Tactics – describe the preferred strategies (playing the baseline or at the net) and patterns of play (serves vary, player known to be a hustler, etc.).
  3. Mental game – describe the level of focus, temperament, etc. of the players.
  4. Fitness – describe the speed and endurance of the players.
  5. A summary with tips and best practices for each competitor.

Prepare this assignment according to guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
