There is no detailed description of the methodology for the matches that were selected, other than to note that they span from 2009 to sometime in September 2015.

I checked the notebook file, the readme, the article text itself, as well as the supplement explaining how BuzzFeed/BBC put the data together, and nowhere is the match dataset specified.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the note. We downloaded the data for all ATP and Grand Slam tournaments available on OddsPortal.com between 2009 and September 24, 2015, including qualifying matches, for which at least one of the seven bookmakers we focused on had odds listed. To identify those tournaments we used this page: http://www.oddsportal.com/results/#tennis.

Thanks, @jtemplon. Did these include Challenger matches as well? (I.e. tournaments such as Curitiba Challenger, San Juan Challenger, ATP Challenger Tour Finals, etc.)
