Coose one (there are most propably more possibilities):

data = Table[ToExpression[StringJoin[#1, ToString[n]]]& /@ {"x", "y"}, {n, 5}]
--> {{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}, {x4, y4}, {x5, y5}}

{#1, f[#1]}& /@ First /@ data
--> {{x1, f[x1]}, {x2, f[x2]}, {x3, f[x3]}, {x4, f[x4]}, {x5, f[x5]}}

Transpose[{#1, f /@ #1}&[First[Transpose[data]]]]
--> {{x1, f[x1]}, {x2, f[x2]}, {x3, f[x3]}, {x4, f[x4]}, {x5, f[x5]}}

data /. {x_?AtomQ, _} :> {x, f[x]}
--> {{x1, f[x1]}, {x2, f[x2]}, {x3, f[x3]}, {x4, f[x4]}, {x5, f[x5]}}
