I've always wondered this but where do the scores come from? Directly connected to the piece of tech the umpire uses? :confused:

I think they're connected to betfair's market fluctuations.

I also thought about that last time, and you can see in every match some gyus with notebooks, si i think they are conect to thery system- softwere and maybe 5 guys immediately after each point, write that score- for example immediately after winner from one player they give to their computers 30:15 and click enter and if it is the same from all 5 it goes to ATP livescore. In davis cup you can see also many guys with notebooks too. Davis cup used it own live score system.

Where does the Live Scoring data originate from?

The live scoring data originates from the Chair Umpire. As all data is received directly from the assigned ATP/WTA Chair Umpires, the data is considered official.
