Tennis, a great sport
Tennis is undoubtedly a classic sport. Every year, four tournaments (the so-called ‘Grand Slams’) gather the world’s attention: the season begins with the Australian Opento continue with the clay track of Roland Garrosthen moved to London with the celebration of Wimbledon and finally closes in the USA with the US Open.
In the rest of the year, players continue to compete around the world completing seasons on the different surfaces: hard or fast track, clay either herb.
Tennis emerged in Europe at the end of the 18th century and since 1926 it is a professional sport date the tour opened. It was especially popular with the upper classes in English-speaking countries, but is now 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, we would have the ATP Challenger Tour, where the future stars of world tennis compete. In addition, he also handles the Grand Slams.
The fight to be the best in history does not stop in the men’s category. The Spanish Rafael Nadalthe Serbian Novak Djokovic and the swiss Roger Federer compete to break all records and accumulate the largest number of Grand Slams. The three players are often referred to as ‘Big Three‘ versus the new generations or ‘Next Gen’.
These new future tennis stars have entered the world 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.
The WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) was founded in 1973 by the famous former tennis player billie jean king. The Californian won 39 Grand Slam titles during her active career and is a benchmark and icon for the world of tennis.
Currently, there are many women’s tennis players who are also struggling to stay at the top of the world tennis elite and surpass Stefanie Graff or Serena Williams. Players like the Polish Iga Świątek (champion of Roland Garros in 2021), the Greek Maria Sakkar either Paula Badosa (the first Spanish winner of Indian Wells) are fighting to stay in the famous top 10 of the WTA ranking.
In the year 2022, the Australian tennis player Asleigh Barty announced his final retirement from the world of tennis and put an end to an impressive career with several Grand Slams behind him. Now it is the turn of the other players to take over from him and become number 1.
