Follow The Long Game

towards a Top 10 WTA/ATP [TENNIS] Ranking

The Long Game was developed and designed to allow players a benchmark and/or ranking range as fundamental milestones to head towards a Top 10 tennis ranking to ensure they know where they stand and when. Not only does this allow coaches to ensure training programs are designed accordingly, but The Long Game also feeds into a player’s overall development from the initial 10 Years of Play towards the next. Cumulatively, that’s 20 Years of Play we’ve put together to help you reach the top of the tennis world in correlation with The Pathway.

But How?

This is where it gets interesting. Due to the landmark findings of Dr Berge’s work, no coach education provider nor federation has access — globally. This means there is not a single coach worldwide who knows these fundamental steps in place.

However, there are a very small number of coaches who have been able to develop more than one player and for them to achieve a Top 10 ranking. This very small number of coaches has attributed to and feeds into our data. Which means, if they’re not your coach, you’re in luck! And even better, by following The Long Game and the work of AM8 International you’ll be safeguarding your body i.e. mitigating injuries, which is even more scarce across this very small cohort which does not include those who claim to know more for good reason. The truth prevails.

Due to privacy measures in place to conduct this groundbreaking research, our ethical bounds (per research protocols) protect all involved whilst Dr Berge remains the world’s leading authority. For those who claim to be otherwise, our question is simple: where is your data? With less than 8% (inside the Top 100) with these tools — and by no means concrete, and 20 cumulative rankings up for grabs on the WTA and ATP tours, that Top 10 tennis ranking remains as elusive as ever with a simple twist. Even more? Olympic implications are one of many success-outcomes of our PoW (Proof of Work).

The Differential

By design it has never been about preventing access to the Top 10, rather it is the complete opposite. Therein is the twist with the answers now available — the data dispersed throughout our Books, to allow each and every player a fighting chance to join the 8% without being left at a disadvantage — the differential.

We’re evening out the playing field. And after 20 years of collective analyses, 12 years of ongoing predictive analytics that have uncovered the likes of Swiatek to Sinner — before their maiden Championship wins, this just touches the surface of what our data has done, where it has been, and where it is going with the capacity to take you to the Top 10 over and over again.

With a unique formula that remains 100% backed by science, it’s the PoW (Proof of Work) and PoC (Proof of Concept) that has rigorously been cross-checked and the results continue to show how our data delivers the new edge for the next generation of play. As a bonus, Dr Berge built The Long Game as a pacer in sync with The Pathway, the 7 Keys and the 8th Key to afford each and every player and coach to work better — together, towards a Top 10 tennis ranking.

The Long Game

Pacers in place to act as a guide as The Long Game falls into place. Be prepared for the long haul. Be prepared for the climb. An ascension awaits from Top 750 towards the Top 50 and beyond.

The Pathway will guide you up until you reach this point and then it’ll turn it up a notch as your level reaches a new baseline to coincide with these ranking ranges.

Still note sure? That’s okay, too. Read our Blogs to get a feel for what’s to come. Listen to our Podcast — Beyond Top 10 Tennis to really learn about the data with direct implications for active players.

At the end of the day, the resources are right here to guide you towards that Top 10 tennis ranking and AM8 International is designed as your home away from home with the toolkit to get you closer towards the Top 10 and achieve Grand Slam success.

*Typically this is a maximum timeframe with players progressing much sooner as denoted by players on the WTA/ATP tour. However, it is possible to achieve a Top 10 to Top 5 ranking inside these age ranges and it’s fundamental to take into account key metrics and progressions. These timeframes may fluctuate and vary, however, typically it can be expected to be shortened if a player adheres to all 8 Keys and that they remain solidified in their game.

The 5 Differentials:
2011 — 2024

Over 13 Years of unrelenting analysis to investigation, the research continues to deliver. From a developmental tennis coach to touring with national players and beyond, a stellar high performance career was just the beginning. With the highest tennis coaching qualification available, the answers were still an unknown.

And that’s one of many reasons why this work was necessary — to uncover what was yet to be found, until now. AM8 International was founded for this very reason by Dr Berge herself to give players, coaches and parents a Tennis Lab they could rely on and trust to get them towards the pinnacle of play.
