    The British Eurosport are saying all over again, that Federer had only won 3 out
    of the last 8 meetings against the top 10 players over the last 12 months...
    Where are that getting that information from?!

    Just data analytics.

    Is your real question: where is this data and can I play with it? No. Not sure if each TV org has their own or if they are given access by the ATP.

    I found this app for my iPhone:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tennisdata/id519054852?mt=8

    One of the stats this app provides is called 'Trending' - last # of matches. In his last 25 Fed has beaten:

    Tsonga (last rd AO)
    Murray (World Tour Final)
    Tipsarevic (World Tour Final)
    Ferrer (World Tour Final)

    So unless they're not counting the World Tour Final - no idea why they would since it's a sanctioned event, that stat doesn't appear legit.

    It's correct if they were talking about USO 12 to WTF 12

    That doesn't make sense, he made the finals of the WTF so he had to beat more top 10 players than that.

    The last top 10 player he beat before the WTF in 2012 was Djokovic in Cincy.
    'Last 12 months' makes it confusing when they are just talking about his last 8 top 10 matches (not counting 2013).
