Advanced Scoring Tips

  1. Accurate STATS depend upon accurate information. If you don’t know how a point ends, don’t worry, just change which court the server is serving to. If you only know who won the point, go to the bottom of the screen and tap “P1 Wins” or “P2 Wins”.
  2. Change your Auto-Lock on your phone to 1-2 minutes so that you don’t have to log on after  breaks.
  3. You can enter player and match information at any time by tapping MATCH at the top.
  4. Scoring HELP is found by tapping the RED (?) at the top of the screen
  5. The actual game and set scores have nothing to do with the Stats, they are for your use only.
  6. Since the default of each point is that the 1st Serve is “in play”, it allows you to focus on the Return of Serve with your thumbs over the “Forehand” and “Backhand” buttons.
