In the rest of the year, players continue to play around the world completing seasons on the 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 with the upper classes in English-speaking countries, but today it is a global sport. It’s divided in two categories: the men’s (ATP) and the women’s (WTA) competition.
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 (where the winner of the tournament will receive 1,000 points to add to the ATP ranking), ATP 500 and ATP 250. Below these tournaments, on a lower step, would be the ATP Challenger Tour, where the future stars of world tennis fight. In addition, he also handles the Grand Slams.

The Spanish Rafael Nadalthe Serbian Novak Djokovic and the swiss Roger Federer they compete to break all the records and achieve the greatest number of Grand Slams. The three players are popularly called as ‘Big Three‘ versus the new generations or ‘Next Gen’.
