A sport that has come to stay
Tennis is considered a classic sport. Every year, four tournaments (the so-called ‘Grand Slams’) attract all the world’s attention: the season begins with the australian opento continue with the clay track of Roland Garrosthen travels to London with the celebration of Wimbledon and finally ends up in the USA 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 after the creation of the first tour. It was especially popular among the upper classes of 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).
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 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 fight to be the best in history is still active in the men’s category. The Spanish Rafael Nadalthe Serbian Novak Djokovic and the swiss Roger Federer they compete to improve all records and achieve the greatest number of Grand Slams. The three players are commonly referred to as ‘big three‘ in front of the new generations or ‘Next Gen’.
These future tennis stars have entered stomping on the global tennis circuit, 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.
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 career and is an icon for the world of tennis.
Today, there are many women’s tennis players 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.
