About ATP and WTA Tours
The Association of Tennis Professionals came to life in 1972 when the leading figures of the men's game joined forces and embarked on a journey that would eventually lead in 1990 to the ATP Tour, a worldwide circuit of men's professional tennis.

The ATP Tour currently boasts 62 tournaments played in 31 countries, which are split into three categories in order of importance with the top ranked Master 1000 events supported by the ATP 500 and ATP 250 tournaments.
This new three tier system was introduced in 2009 alongside a $1 billion investment in infrastructure and facility upgrades and a 33% increase in player compensation.
Top events include the Madrid Open, Internazionali BNL d'Italia and Shanghai Masters amongst a host of others
The season culminates at the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals, featuring the top eight singles players and doubles teams in the ATP Rankings.
The Women's Tennis Association (WTA), meanwhile, was founded in 1973 by the legendary Billie Jean King and is now the main organising body for women's professional tennis, governing the WTA Tour.
It boasts over 2,500 players representing 92 countries and competing for a record $129 million in prize money at the WTA tour's 55 events.
The BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells and the Mutua Madrid Open are just two of the top events on the women's tour, whilst the end of season WTA Finals are the equivalent to the ATP World Tour Finals.Back to Top
The Emirates ATP Rankings were introduced in August 1973 and quickly earned legitimacy and credibility to become an indispensable part of the sport.
Before that, rankings were generally calculated by national tennis associations, circuits and journalists and it was evident that a system free of personal opinion and bias was desperately needed. So 12 months after the ATP was establised, Ilie Nastase became the first ATP World No. 1.
Only 25 players have reached that summit, with just 16 finishing the season as year-end No. 1.
