Here is a newbie approach:

In[1]:=
lst = Table[{ToExpression[
StringJoin["x",
ToString[i]]],
ToExpression[StringJoin[
"y", ToString[i]]]},
{i, 5}]
Out[1]=
{{x1, y1}, {x2, y2},
{x3, y3}, {x4, y4},
{x5, y5}}

In[3]:=
({#1[[1]], f[#1[[1]]]} & ) /@
lst
Out[3]=
{{x1, f[x1]}, {x2, f[x2]},
{x3, f[x3]}, {x4, f[x4]},
{x5, f[x5]}}
