Abstract: We present statistical evidence that in professional tennis the probability of winning a point may depend on whether the serving player serves from the deuce court or from the ad court. Moreover, in this case of distinct win-probabilities, we show how to calculate the probability of winning a game, as well as winning a tiebreak.
