The Open Era in tennis began in April 1968, when the Grand Slam tournaments agreed to allow professional players to compete with amateurs. A professional tennis tour was created for the entire year, where everyone could compete in. This meant that the division that had existed for many years between these two groups had finally come to an end, which made the tennis world into one unified competition.

The first event to go "open" started on April 22, 1968 at The West Hants Club in Bournemouth, England, while the first Grand Slam tournament to do so was the 1968 French Open (Roland Garros) starting May 27. Records and titles from before this date are difficult to compare with those of the Open Era, since many of the best players were not allowed to participate in the respective tournaments.

Year-end championships

(1970 – present)


The ATP event began in 1970 and was originally known as the Masters Grand Prix as part of the Grand Prix tennis circuit. It was organized by the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF).

In 1990, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) took over the running of the men's tour and replaced the Masters with the ATP Tour World Championship. In 2009 the Championship was renamed the ATP World Tour Finals.


(1971–1989) The WCT Finals, as the season-ending championship for the World Championship Tennis tour, was held in Dallas, Texas and played on indoor carpet courts.

Masters tournaments (1970–present)


This collection of 9 annual tournaments are the most important after the Grand Slams and the year-end championships. They have existed in two phases, first as the Super Series of ITF's Grand Prix tour. When the ATP took over the men's tour in 1990 they became the Super 9 and then the Masters; their official name is now the ATP World Tour Masters 1000.
