I've posed a similar question here a few years back, but I can't seem to find the thread. But I'm wondering what stats the active tennis cappers find the most useful? And also what information you can't get your hands on that you would like to see.
I've been working about 2 years on and off putting together something
in the way of a tennis stats site to fill what I see as a major void in
this sport, at least in the states.
The two things I've focused most on:
Is creating a power ranking system for tracking the strength of players
at a given point in time, and thus the value of their wins/losses more
accurately; as the current atp rankings are really built to protect top
players, not show weekly and monthly momentum.
And then, obviously, there is a huge void out there for finding
reputable stats analysis outside basic h2h matchups. So you can't
easily see things like serve percentage for Nadal on grass. Or quality
wins for Jack Sock over the last 6 months.
I've put in about 200 hours this month and I'm getting close to
finishing up the first version of the site, but I'd love to hear any
specific requests for statistics people would find especially
beneficial. Of course I will continue to add things over time, but it's
much easier to fine tune things before the site layout is finalized.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
