I am trying to find a resource where I can find the results for historic tennis games, where the match statistics are broken down within each set. The ATP website gives a breakdown for the entire match e.g. Wimbledon 2015 Final, but I would like to know the same statistics broken down by set (or even by game if possible).

  • I will mention that for example this website has both various stats and eve point-by-point data for top level tennis tournaments from recent years. I suppose that it is possible to find several sites which provide similar data. But I do not know about a website which has data before year 2000. (In fact, the site I linked to has only stats after cca 2010.) – Martin Aug 28 '15 at 11:55

  • Thanks @Martin, the link was just the thing I was looking for. – oliver Sep 2 '15 at 8:24

The most detailed publicly available professional tennis match dataset I'm aware of can be found on a website called tennisabstract run by Jeff Sackmann. For the information you are interested in I recommend checking out the detailed match reports, which are compiled as part of the match charting project. The "point-by-point" description of a match tells you everything that occurred during each point (including the kind and placement of each shot the players hit).

While they don't have reports on every recent match, they do have 507 mens matches and 546 women's matches; some charted matches date back as far as the 1980's, but the records are heavily weighted toward matches after 2010.

The charted matches can be found in a form more amenable to comprehensive analysis on Sackmann's GitHub page.
