2020 ATP Finals

The 2020 ATP Finals (also known as the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals for sponsorship reasons) was a men's tennis tournament played at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom, from 15 to 22 November 2020. It was the season-ending event for the highest-ranked singles players and doubles teams on the 2020 ATP Tour. This was the final year that London hosted the event. On 14 August 2020, it was announced the tournament would be held without spectators in attendance following guidelines imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.The tournament took place from 15 to 22 November at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom. It was the 51st edition of the tournament (46th in doubles). The tournament was run by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and was part of the 2020 ATP Tour. The event took place on indoor hard courts. It served as the season-ending championships for players on the ATP Tour. In singles (and in doubles with teams in place of individual players), the eight players who qualified for the event were split into two groups of four. During this stage, players competed in a round-robin format.


2022 ATP Tour

The 2022 ATP Tour is the global elite men's professional tennis circuit organised by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) for the 2022 tennis season. The 2022 ATP Tour calendar comprises the Grand Slam tournaments (supervised by the International Tennis Federation (ITF)), the ATP Finals, the ATP Tour Masters 1000, the ATP Cup, the ATP 500 series and the ATP 250 series. Also included in the 2022 calendar are the Davis Cup (organised by the ITF), Wimbledon, the Next Gen ATP Finals, and Laver Cup, none of which distribute ranking points. As part of international sports' reaction to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the ATP, the WTA (Women's Tennis Association), the ITF, and the four Grand Slam tournaments jointly announced on 1 March that players from Belarus and Russia would not be allowed to play in tournaments under the names or flags of their countries, but would remain eligible to play events until further notice. On 20 May 2022, the ATP, ITF, and WTA announced that ranking points would not be awarded for Wimbledon, due to the All England Club's decision to prohibit players from Belarus or Russia from participating in the tournament.


ATP Finals

The ATP Finals is the second highest tier of annual men's tennis tournaments after the four Grand Slams. The ATP Finals are the season-ending championships of the ATP Tour and feature the top eight singles players and top eight doubles teams based on their results that year. It is one of several events tennis fans sometimes refer to as a "fifth Grand Slam," due to the prestige that comes with qualifying for and winning the event.The tournament uses a unique format not seen in other ATP Tour events: The players are separated into two groups of four, within which they each play three round robin matches. The top two players from each group after the round robin stage move on to the semifinals, followed by a final to determine the champion. The tournament was first held in 1970, although it was then known by a different name. Roger Federer holds the record for the most singles titles with six, while Peter Fleming and John McEnroe jointly hold the record for the most doubles titles with seven. In the tournament's current format, the champion can earn a maximum of 1,500 ranking points, if they win the event while staying undefeated during the round robin stage.


ATP Tour Masters 1000

The ATP Masters 1000 tournaments (previously known as ATP Masters Series) is an annual series of nine tennis tournaments featuring the top-ranked players on the ATP Tour. The series' events have been held in Europe and North America since the debut of ATP Tour in 1990, and also in Asia since 2009. The ATP Masters, along with the ATP Finals, constitute the most coveted trophies in men's tennis after the four majors, hence the tournaments are collectively known as the "Big Titles" (alongside the Olympics).In singles, Novak Djokovic holds the record for the most titles with 38 since the Masters Series began in 1990. By completing the set of all nine Masters singles titles in 2018, Djokovic became the first and only player to achieve the Career Golden Masters. In 2020, Djokovic completed the Career Golden Masters for the second time in his career.In doubles, the Bryan brothers (Bob and Mike) have won a record 39 doubles titles as a team. Daniel Nestor and the Bryan brothers are the only doubles players who have achieved the Career Golden Masters.


ATP rankings

The Pepperstone ATP rankings are the merit-based method used by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) for determining the qualification for entry as well as the seeding of players in all singles and doubles tournaments. The first rankings for singles were published on 23 August 1973 while the doubles players were ranked for the first time on 1 March 1976. Ranking points are awarded according to the stage of tournament reached, and the prestige of the tournament, with the four Grand Slam tournaments awarding the most points. The rankings are updated every Monday, and points are dropped 52 weeks after being awarded (with the exception of the ATP Finals, from which points are dropped on the Monday following the last ATP Tour event of the following year). Daniil Medvedev is the current world No. 1.
