Hi Michael,
let's assume your data points are only 4:
In[1]:= t1 = {{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}, {x4, y4}};

Hence,
In[2]:= t2 = Transpose[t1]
Out[2]= {{x1, x2, x3, x4}, {y1, y2, y3, y4}}

In[3]:= {#, f[#]} & /@ t2[[1]]
Out[3]= {{x1, f[x1]}, {x2, f[x2]}, {x3, f[x3]}, {x4, f[x4]}}

Best regards,
~Scout~
