I am a software developer and I have taken a couple classes about data science. I also love tennis. I have tossed the idea around of making a database for tennis match statistics (each player's 1st serve percentage, winners/unforced errors, etc) for the purpose of statistical analysis. The goal is to be able to predict who is going to win a match based on their recent performance.
So my question is, would this be interesting to anyone? As far as I know, there's no where online where the statistics for each match is posted, so I figure this would involve skipping to the end of record matches and manually entering the stats they show on screen. This would have to be a crowd source effort since I'd imagine there are thousands of matches a year.
Like i said, just some thoughts I've been working with, I have not begun actually creating anything yet. But if anyone has an ideas or thinks this might be worth while, please let me know.
