atp world tour timeline

The ATP is in its fifth decade as a leading governing body in professional tennis. The organisation was formed in
1972 when a handful of the games top players met in a secluded stairwell at the US Open to discuss the need for
a players association. Under the leadership of newly elected executive director Jack Kramer and president Cliff
Drysdale, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) came to life with a goal of changing the game for the better.

The following is a look back aT aTP highlighTs over The PasT four decades:
1973: The ATP establishes the computer ranking system, providing a fair analysis of a players performance and
creating an objective way to determine entries into tournaments. The ATP Rankings are introduced on August
23 with Ilie Nastase debuting at No. 1. Other actions include placing tournament representatives on the road and
standardising prize money distribution and the conduct and discipline code. The ATP shows its strength and sends
message of player unity after players boycott Wimbledon to defend Niki Pilics position against a Yugoslavian
Federation suspension for missing a Davis Cup match.
1974: The Mens International Professional Tennis Council (MIPTC), made up of ATP, ILTF and tournament
directors, is formed to govern the sport as an independent, democratic, international body for the administration
of professional tennis.
1976: The ATP Doubles computer rankings begin on March 1.
1979: Full-time MIPTC supervisors are employed on the mens tour, and Penn becomes the official ball of the ATP.
In a groundbreaking move, four young Chinese players compete in U.S. tournaments for the first time in over
21 years after being sponsored by the ATP.
1980: The ATP sets up a player pension fund.
1985: At the request of the ATP, MIPTC passes a Drug Testing Rule, making tennis the first professional sport to
institute a workable and well-designed drug testing programme.
1986: In an effort to make the calendar more coherent, the MIPTC moves the Australian Open a month back to
January (87) and The Masters a month earlier to December (86).
1988: The players, under ATP CEO Hamilton Jordan, hold a press conference in the US Open parking lot to
announce that they will assume more control of the game. Tennis at the Crossroads outlines a plan for players
to form a new tour in which they would play a major role and bear greater responsibility for the future of the sport.
The idea is quickly embraced by the membership. Eighty-five of the Top 100 ranked players sign a letter of support
for a new tour within weeks of the news conference. Tournament directors representing many of the worlds
leading events voice their support for the players and join them in what was to become a partnership unique in
professional sports players and tournaments each with an equal voice in how the circuit is run.
1989: All Top 50 players contractually agree to play the new ATP Tour in 1990. A new calendar is structured
allowing for an eight-week off-season and tournaments are realigned.
1990: Sponsored by IBM, the ATP Tour era begins with an equal partnership between players and tournaments.
The circuit features 76 tournaments in 28 countries on six continents, with prize money averaging a 50% increase
at the events. Indianapolis tournament director Mark Miles is named ATP CEO.
1991: The first television package for mens tennis broadcasts 19 tournaments to a worldwide audience.
1993: The ATP Tour extends its global reach, adding Arabian Gulf tournaments in Doha and Dubai. Prize money
continues to rise, increasing by 23%.
1995: The ATP Tour launches its first ATP web site, ATP Online, and further broadens its reach by enlisting the
song Bring It On from pop star Seal, which he sings at the ATP Tour Awards Gala and Night of the Stars at the
ATP World Championships in Hannover.
1996: The Mercedes-Benz/ATP partnership begins with a four-year agreement. As the Official Car of the ATP,
Mercedes-Benz provides official transportation at ATP tournaments, showcases prominent car displays at
tournament sites and positions its Mercedes-Benz star signage on nets.
1997: The ATP Senior Tour of Champions is sanctioned.
1998: Players form a new STARS program as the ATP Tour helps make players more accessible to media,
sponsors and fans. ATP broadcasts extend their reach to more than 200 countries.
2000: The ATP Tour changes its name to ATP for 2001, introduces a new logo and rebrands its nine
premier tournaments the Tennis Masters Series.

well as reduced draw sizes at five ATP Masters Series events to lessen the physical demands on top players and
enhance TV scheduling. The ATP also increases prize money for the first time since 2000 and creates a new
multi-million dollar marketing fund.
2008: The top three players, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, take a leadership role by
becoming ATP Player Council members with Federer as President. Its the first time in the organisations history
the top three players have joined the council in the same two-year period. All worldwide tennis organisations

PR & MARKETING FAQS
(FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)

Q: How do I get a media credential for a tennis tournament?


A: Each ATP World Tour and Grand Slam tournament is responsible for the media accreditation.
Please contact the tournament press officer listed in the tournament directory (pages 19-31).
Please remember some tournaments have very early media credential deadlines so apply early.

Q: How do I interview a player at a tournament?


A: A member of ATP PR & Marketing is on site at all ATP World Tour events and will liaise with the media
for all interviews. Interviews can be either post-match availability (in the press conference room or in
the mixed zone) or special features. For features as well as photo shoots and TV show appearances,
please contact a member of ATP PR & Marketing (below) before the tournament starts.

Q: What is the mixed zone?


A: It is a different approach to post-match player interviews allowing a more efficient interaction
between media and players. The mixed zone facilitates immediate contact between media and
athletes right after a match in a designated area near the entrance to the Locker Room. At the
beginning of each day of main draw play, the ATP will determine the list of press conferences with
the rest of the player post-match interviews taking place in the mixed zone.

Q: How do I receive ATP media information such as tournament updates,


press releases, ATP Tennis Weekly?
A: If you wish to receive all ATP media information by email, please send a request to
Alison Kim (akim@atpworldtour.com). For all media information including live scoring,
miscellaneous statistics, updated player bios and results, please visit ATPWorldTour.com

Q: How do I get footage of tennis matches for broadcast purposes?


A: Please contact David Cotton at ATP Media (david.cotton@atpmedia.tv).

Q: How do I get photos of tennis players and tournaments?


A: Please contact any independent photographer or agency.
