dc.description.abstract We develop a test of the minimax hypothesis using field data from championship professional tennis matches, and we find that win rates in the serve and return play of top professional tennis players are consistent with the minimax hypothesis. However, the players' choices are not consistent with the serial independence implied by the minimax hypothesis: even the best tennis players tend to switch from one action to another too often. en_US
