Every year, four tournaments (the so-called ‘Grand Slams’) attract all the world’s attention: the season begins with the australian opencontinue with the clay track of Roland Garrosthen moves to London with the celebration of Wimbledon and finally ends up in the United States with the US Open.

The rest of the year, players also compete around the world completing seasons on different surfaces: hard or fast track, clay either herb.

tennis was born in Europe at the end of the 18th century and since 1926 it is a professional sport after the creation of the first tour. It was especially popular among the upper classes of English-speaking countries, but is currently a global sport. It’s divided in two categories: the men’s competition (ATP) and the women’s (WTA).


The ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) is the association of professional tennis players that brings together players from all over the world in the men’s category.

The ATP tour holds several tournaments throughout the year: ATP Masters 1000 (where the winner of the tournament will take 1000 points to add to the ATP ranking), ATP 500 and ATP 250. Below these tournaments, in a lower step would be the ATP Challenger Tour, where the future stars of world tennis compete. In addition, the association also takes care of the Grand Slams.

The Spanish Rafael Nadalthe Serbian Novak Djokovic and the swiss Roger Federer they compete to break all records and achieve the greatest number of Grand Slams. The three players are frequently referred to as ‘big three‘ in front of the new generations or ‘Next Gen’.

Players like the Polish Iga Świątek (Roland Garros champion in 2021), the Greek Maria Sakkari either Paula Badosa (the first Spanish winner of Indian Wells) are fighting to stay in the famous top 10 of the WTA ranking.
