Do you know if the Sofascore API can also provide in-play stats like serve %, break points, etc...or is it just current/past scores?

If stats are available for the match you can get them via the API. I'm doing it now to pass to Guardian
This is from my current log on this match

Disappointing to say the least
Ive trading the WTA event all day. I'm currently on the Pegula v Svitolina match as I type

There's still plenty of money around, so I can't see too much impact as yet

Could turn out to be a nice bonus for manual traders. At least for getting trades on and matched

No Betfair API scoring ? No problem...
There's a bit of lag and can't go lower than a 10s refresh but it's better than nothing. Can get every in play stat going though, plus all the inplay scoring history, which is a nice bonus.

We just got an email from Betfair indicating that they are pulling the live score feed from the API for WTA events.
BDP @ Betfair wrote:Hi,

Due to a recent changes with our feed supplier, WTA tennis events will no longer be made available via the Tennis Scores API with immediate effect.

ATP events will continue to be provided as usual via the Tennis Scores API.

For a schedule of up and coming ATP events please see the ATP website (https://www.atptour.com/en/tournaments)

Kind Regards

Betfair Developer Program

This is a huge loss to Bet Angels tennis trading weapon! Must be to do with the exclusivity deal WTA have recently agreed.

https://www.statsperform.com/press/stat ... ded%20tour.

Will betfair buy the rights to stream the data again? Does Bet Angel have a plan to resolve this?

Hopefully it will be sorted soon?

Is this now an issue with ATP?

Nothing coming through for tonight's AO mens games.

I've just seen that the Tennis Trader isn't getting the scores through and on Betfair their scores aren't updating very well at all.

Unfortunately Betfair doesn't pay for the feed from the Aussie open, that includes ATP as well.
