dc.description.abstractThere is a skewed birth month distribution of Grand Slam tennis players with more players than expected being born in the first half of the year. The current investigation found that (a) female players in Grand Slam tournaments were younger than male players, (b) the birth month distribution of Grand Slam players was not as skewed in 2009 as it was in 2002-03, (c) the skewed birth month distribution increased as female players became seniors but decreased as male players became seniors, (d) male players born in the second half of the year played Grand Slam tennis to an older age than male players born in the first half of the year, and (e) female players born in the second half of the year increased the number of Grand Slam tournaments they played between 2006 and 2009 more than female players born in the first half of the year.
