What is ATP and how does it operate?
The ATP, otherwise known as the Association of Tennis Professionals, is the sport’s governing body that operates on a worldwide scale as they look after the various tournaments and events that come under its jurisdiction.
The ATP had been formed in 1972 by a handful of former tennis players who had wanted to try and better protect their interests and those of other professional tennis players who competed then and in the future.
One of the biggest changes that the governing body managed to introduce was in 1990 when they launched the ATP Tour, as this helped to turn the sport into the competitive game that it is today.
Biggest Events in the ATP
Known as the ATP Tour, the event is the premier worldwide tour for the best male tennis players within the sport that has been organised by the ATP organisation, with a number of different events being competed in across the year.
The ATP Tour consists of each of the four Grand Slams that can be contested for in each season, with the Australian Open, the Roland Garros (otherwise known as the French Open), Wimbledon and the U.S. Open all on the list, whilst these are then followed by the season-ending ATP Finals; an event that is considered to be second to the Grand Slams but higher than all of the other events.
There are a number of other ATP Tour events that take place throughout the year, thus providing bettors with a number of opportunities to wager on, with a variety of different ATP scores being announced seemingly on a daily basis.
Big Names on the ATP Tour
Considering that the ATP features so many of the world’s biggest events in Men’s tennis, it should not come as a surprise to learn that a number of the world’s best players have all competed in ATP tennis over the years and will likely continue to do so.
The ATP rankings have seen the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi and many other players all occupy the number one spot at one point throughout their careers.
The ATP rankings are published on a weekly basis and is based on a 52-week rolling schedule, therefore meaning it is updated each week of the year.
The ATP rankings are important in determining qualification and seeding for various tournaments on the ATP schedule and players will be able to increase their position on the leaderboard by achieving positive ATP scores when competing in professional events and matches throughout the season.
The player who sits at the No. 1 spot at the end of the season is considered to be the best player of the year.
The ATP tennis schedule is one that is hectic and extremely busy, which is why it has proven to be incredibly popular with sports bettors in Canada over the years and continues to remain as favourable as it is today.
