Tennis, a great sport

Tennis is undoubtedly a classic sport. Every year, four tournaments (the so-called ‘Grand Slams’) gather 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 ends in the United States with the US Open.

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

Tennis originated in Europe at the end of the 18th century and since 1926 it is a professional sport, the date the tour was created. It was especially popular among the wealthy classes in English-speaking countries, but today it is a global sport. It’s divided in two categories: the men’s competition (ATP) and the women’s (WTA).

ATP

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 organizes several tournaments throughout the year: ATP Masters 1000 (if a player wins the tournament, he will get 1000 points to add to the ATP ranking), ATP 500 and ATP 250. Below these tournaments, in a lower step we would have the ATP Challenger Tour, where the future stars of world tennis compete. In addition, the association also takes care of the Grand Slams.

The fight to be the best in history is still latent in the men’s category. The Spanish Rafael Nadalthe Serbian Novak Djokovic and the swiss Roger Federer they compete to improve all records and add 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’.

These potential future tennis stars have entered the global tennis circuit with a bang, as in the case of the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipasfrom Italian Matteo Berrettinithe German Alexander Zverev or the russians Medvedev Y Rublev.

Novak Djokovic currently holds the record for weeks at number 1 of the ATP rankings, closely followed by Roger Federer, the legendary American player Pete Sampras, Iván Lendl and Jimmy Connors.

WTA

The WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) was created in 1973 by the famous former tennis player billie jean king. The Californian won 39 Grand Slam titles during her active period and is a benchmark and icon for the world of tennis.

Today, there are many women’s tennis players who are also fighting to stay at the top of the world tennis elite and surpass Stefanie Graff or Serena Williams. 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 top 10 of the WTA ranking.
