The ATP Tennis Ranking System

by ysevaJun 6, 2015

Ranking can be a little complex to understand. The player’s ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) Ranking is based on the total points they have managed to gain in the following nineteen tournaments (in fact this is eighteen if they did not manage to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals).

  • 4 Grand Slam tournaments
    • 8 mandatory ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments
    • The previous ATP World Tour Finals count until the Monday following the final regular-season ATP event of the following year and
    • The best 6 results from all of the ATP World Tour 500, ATP World Tour 250, ATP Challenger Tour, Futures Series, Olympics and Davis Cup tournaments played within the calendar year

The latest Mens Tennis Rankings can be found below. Taking top spot is Rafael Nadal – no real shock here. Andy Murray takes eighth place, with expectations that he could successfully defend his Wimbledon title.
