Odd thing happened tonight. Not sure if it was the sensor malfunctioning or if an update to the App changed the way it calculated the data.
I usually get between 4000-4500 PIQ score for a session that is focused on ground strokes or playing singles.
Tonight I played my buddy and in our warmup my PIQ score was round 4800. Higher than normal, and I felt I was hitting well but nothing special.
Then after volleys, I reset the sensor for our competitive hitting and it registered me at about 7,000. With this my style was an 8, Avy MPH 55 and spin% was 66.
I played well but not out of my mind tennis. Nothing else seemed odd.
Typically my style is between 5, 6 on a good day. Speed will be closer to 45-50 and spin is between 25-30%. So I wonder what happened? Sensor seemed to stay in place well.
Then when I looked at my Profile that breakdowns your average peak score (for the last 6 sessions), Obviously my avg PIQ will be up since I got this boost from today's 7,000 session. Avg PIQ was 5009 with a style of 6, Average speed listed as 20, but the blue color dial takes up almost half the rolling column and then spin was at 34%.
So is something wrong with the output regarding average speed for the Average PIQ score? The picture looks more around 50mph plus, but it says 20 which would not correlate with a 5009 PIQ. Strange.
Got a 5100 and 6300 today.
Not sure I like the updated PIQ scores.
First, if a pro tennis player is around 10,000. It made sense for me a 4.0 to be around 4000-4500.
But now I've gotten a 5K, 6K and 7K. I think I'm at best 40% of the lowest pro tennis player, not 60%.
Also the variability seems even wider than it was before. If I had 2 session where I felt the same they might rate 4100 and 4300.
Now I had a session of 5100 and 6300. Only difference were more groundies in the second session. Play overall close. But now over 1000 points away.
Spin numbers have gone up greatly. Did that mean the old method was way off? I might agree with that since I thought I hit with a lot of spin.
Also the Average FH or BH speed will be around 50, but then the AVG speed reported on the PIQ score will be 55. How can it be higher if my Avg FH was 50 and Avg BH was 50?Yet all I hit were groundies. No serves and maybe a handful of smashes.
I'll give it more time obviously.
Yes, the PIQ score calculation has been adjusted, and thus scores may appear higher, as they are for you. In regards to the output, I'm not exactly sure what is occurring there, but I will share it with the team.
I appreciate all of the feedback you offered here, and we'll discuss it with the team as they continue to work on updates to POP.
