ATP Finals History


The ATP Finals began as the Masters Grand Prix in 1970 and was originally part of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit. The Masters Grand Prix ran in conjunction with the WCT Finals on the rival World Championship Tennis Tour. 

The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) began organising the men's tour in 1990 and replaced the Masters Grand Prix with the ATP Tour World Championship. The ITF continued to run the Grand Slam tournaments seperately from the ATP, creating another year-end event known as the Grand Slam Cup. The Grand Slam Cup was contested by the 16 players with the best records in Grand Slam competitions that year.

In 1999 the ATP and ITF agreed to create a new event called the Tennis Masters Cup. The Tennis Masters Cup followed the same format as the Masters Grand Prix and ATP Tour World Championships where it was contested by eight players. 

In 2009, the Tennis Masters Cup was rebranded as the ATP World Tour Finals and has been held at The O2 Arena in London from 2009. In 2018 it was announced that London, Manchester, Singapore, Tokyo and Turin were on a shortlist of five cities to host the event with Turin, Italy hosting the ATP Finals from 2021.

The ATP Finals has been played on indoor hard courts but was previously played on indoor carpet courts.
