Rafael Nadal The Latest Top Tennis Player To Leave IMG
Published December 27, 2012
THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT: USA TODAY's Jon Swartz reported Nadal has a new iPhone app called Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy that "will be available within the next few days on iTunes." The app, "developed with video-analysis firm Vstrator," offers "in-depth tennis tutorials of Nadal's strokes, along with Vstrator's easy-to-use video coaching tools." Video can be recorded or "imported from a smartphone camera into the app." So-called "Vstrate" technology lets users "highlight video to zero in on any part of their game." Users of the app can "frame video forward and back to compare their technique with Nadal and other players." Vstrator video "can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or text message" (USA TODAY, 12/26).
