High Tech Tennis For The Sports Techie Community Blog

Sports Techie was asked by iQ by Intel to take a look at the way tech is changing how tennis is played via connected racquets, smart courts and technology being used at this year’s 2014 grand slams, however, since I am no longer a contributor and was sent this story I researched back, I will publish it on my own for our community readers and followers benefit.
