ATP Tennis Rankings, Results, and Stats
For now, this contains my master ATP player file, plus historical rankings.
The player file columns are player_id, first_name, last_name, hand, birth_date, country_code.
The columns for the ranking files are ranking_date, ranking, player_id, ranking_points.
ATP rankings are mostly complete from 1983 to the end of 2014. 1982 is missing, and rankings from 1973-1981 are only intermittent.
My ATP match result database is now here, as well. There are up to three files per season: One for tour-level main draw matches (e.g. 'atp_matches_2014.csv'), one for tour-level qualifying and challenger main-draw matches, and one for futures matches.
To make them easier to use, I've included a fair bit of redundancy with the biographical and ranking files: each row contains several columns of biographical information, along with ranking and ranking points, for both players. Ranking data, as well as age, are as of tourney_date, which is almost always the Monday at or near the beginning of the event.
MatchStats are included where I have them. In general, that means 1991-present for tour-level matches, 2008-present for challengers, and 2011-present for tour-level qualifying. The MatchStats columns should be self-explanatory, but they might not be what you're used to seeing; it's all integer totals (e.g. 1st serves in, not 1st serve percentage), from which traditional percentages can be calculated.
There are a few tour-level matches with missing stats. Some are missing because ATP doesn't have them. Others I've deleted because they didn't pass some sanity check (loser won 60% of points, or match time was under 20 minutes, etc). Also, Davis Cup matches are included in the tour-level files, but there are no stats for Davis Cup matches
2015 rankings, results, and stats are now available through last week's play. The results files are named according to the same conventions as the others. The rankings file for the current year is atp_rankings_current.csv.
