ATP Rankings: U.S. Ranking History

For the First Time in Rankings History, U.S. Will Have No Men in Top 20:


The ATP Rankings are the “objective merit-based method used for determining qualification for entry and seeding in all tennis tournaments for both (male) singles and doubles. The rankings period is “the immediate past 52 weeks, except for: Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, singles and doubles, which is dropped on the Monday following the last ATP World Tour event of the following year; Future Series tournaments that are only entered into the system on the second Monday following the tournament’s week. Once entered, all tournaments, except the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, remain in the system for 52 consecutive weeks.


A player’s ATP Ranking is based on the total points he accrued in the following 19 tournaments (18 if he did not qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals):

  • The four Grand Slam tournaments
  • The eight mandatory ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments
  • The previous ATP World Tour Finals count until the Monday following the final regular-season ATP event of the following year.[3]
  • The best six results from all ATP World Tour 500, ATP World Tour 250, ATP Challenger Tour, Future Series, Olympics, and Davis Cup tournaments played in the calendar year.

Last month, for the first time in the history of the ATP rankings (since 1973), the United States had no men ranked in the Top 20, after Vasek Pospisil’s 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) upset of John Isner at the Rogers Cup. At Scarborough East, we`re keeping our fingers crossed for another American to enter the rankings soon, but until then, we´ll just have to take matters into our own hands with our young tennis players 🙂
