Stephanie Kovalchik, senior data scientist with Tennis Australia's Game Insight Group, joins Thirty Love Host Carl Bialik to explain why a first-time Slam champ is so much more likely in the women's draw of the Australian Open than in the men's draw, and to invite entries to the other big January tennis tournament: to crack the code of what makes an error forced or unforced, using the biggest-ever public release of Hawk-Eye data.
Thirty Love is produced and edited by Jorge Estrada, with music by Lee Rosevere.
