I'm trying to predict tennis match outcomes in R using only match scores from previous opponents to predict winners/losers for future matches. The match scores, however, are only as granular as the set score and game score (there is no knowledge of point scores or other statistics). The resultid is largely irrelevant, I believe.
If this sounds confusing, please have a look at my
I've hypothesized that I might need to use Markov chains to do this with different game scores (1-1, 1-2, 1-3, etc) as different states, but I'm not sure if this is possible, due to how limited the data is.
Please advise. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
