Optimal Plays during a Tennis Match

Started Feb. 19, 2022

Abstract or project description

Across different sets in a match, what is the optimal play style for players at different NTRP levels? Using different statistics from the SwingVision dataset, Akshay will examine two response variables: the first is whether or not a shot was successful and the second is how many shots are in a ralley. These will the metrics we use to determine the optimal play style during a tennis match. Using variables such as shot type, we can determine the best types of shots to take at different points in a match.
