ATP Rankings

The ATP is a body which was formed in 1972 to protect the interests of male professional tennis players on the circuit. ATP tennis is a very important body which looks after the players interests and decides the fixtures of the tournaments to be held throughout the year in every season. The rankings of the players are published every week based on their performance in that particular week. There is a point system which determines the relative ranking of the tennis players. The ATP is only for the male players while the female players have got their own WTP. There is an ATP tennis ranking which determines how a player is going to be seeded for a particular tournament. All the tournaments are taken into account for the rankings except for the tennis Master’s Cup which is dropped at the end of the year. The player with the greatest number of points by the end of the year is declared No. 1.

Apart from this, there is also the ATP race which determines which players and teams are going to participate in the Master’s Cup. The top eight players from singles, according to their points, and the top four from the tennis doubles, are selected for the Master’s Cup.
