Is there any such thing as a database with all pro tennis match results above a certain level enabling reports to be run on earnings within specific periods, historic rankings etc?

I've found the web browser based databases where individuals can be looked up, but I wanted something a more versetile, even if that means a subscription.

Thanks :)

Since 1968 you have the ATP and ITF sides. Both are far from complete for the period 68 to 77/78, but especially the ITF webside has many draws of the years. Go to 'tournaments' and give in the name of the tourney or the player and the year from 1. Jan to 31. Dec. Pre 68 it is difficult to get all results. There are books by John Barrett on Wimbledon with complete reconstructable results since 1877. In his book 'Winners-Vainceurs', Frenchman Michel Sutter has compiled a list with all tournament winners and final results since 1946, which he could find in the archive of L'Equipe. For the pro tours 27-68, the most compelling event and match list was made by Joe McCauley (with help of Robert Geist) in his book ' History of Professional tennis'.
