This study aimed to discover whether elite tennis player’s match performance increases, decreases or remains consistent in women’s 3 set matches, and men’s 4 and 5 set matches. The study analysed a total of 99 games from both men and women’s matches at all four Grand Slam tournaments from 2013. All statistics were taken from the websites of the four tournaments and were typed into a Microsoft Excel document. The data was then transferred into a software called SPSS which allowed various tests to be performed to reveal if there were any significant differences in the data. The results showed that there were significantly more unforced errors made in the 3rd set of a match for both men and women (p = .000). The study also found out that there was a significant difference in the number of break points in men’s 5 set matches (p = .010). The findings of this study can be used to produce future studies relating to the match performance consistency of elite tennis players.
