How the ATP Rankings work: Men’s tennis singles rankings explained
- June 23, 2023
While the ATP Rankings have only existed for a fraction of the time that tennis has been a global sport, they are central to how the men’s game functions.
Rankings determine entry into all tournaments on the elite circuit and also dictates the seeding for events.
The ATP Rankings are the official men’s rankings for tennis and offer another front for the sport’s best to compare and compete with one another.
While the most points are available at Grand Slams and then the Masters events, rankings points are on offer across events right down to the ITF circuit level.
Being world No 1 is now the goal of thousands of youngsters setting out on their tennis journey.
Here we look at the mechanics of the ATP Rankings .
How do the ATP Rankings work
A player’s ranking is determined by their best performances across 19 singles events. *The ATP Finals is an extra event (20th) in the ranking breakdown which effectively offers bonus rankings points to those who qualify to take part.
Top players who compete at all mandatory events will have the following breakdown according to ATPTour.com:
- One (1) Nitto ATP Finals* (additional event in the ranking breakdown)
- Four (4) Grand Slams
- Eight (8) mandatory Masters 1000s
- Seven ‘Best Other’ (ATP Cup, ATP Masters 1000 Monte Carlo, ATP 500, ATP 250, Challenger or ITF events).
The rankings operate on a rolling 52-week ranking logic, where in most cases players will see their points from a previous year’s tournament fall away in the week the next edition of the event takes place, there are exceptions when events are moved in the calendar.
This logic explains references to players ‘defending their points’ where a player would need to match or better their performance from the previous season’s event in order to maintain or improve their
ATP Rankings are updated weekly on Mondays, but the organisation also tracks so-called live rankings which will update according to a player’s progress through the week.
There are currently 2007 players ranked by the ATP but those eager to avoid qualifying tournaments on the ATP Tour generally need to keep themselves in and around the top 50 players in the world.
Novak Djokovic is the player to have spent the most weeks at the top of the ATP Rankings and looks set to set incredible records through the standings in the near future.
How are players separated when they tie ATP Rankings points?
When two or more players land on the same total number of points, ties shall be broken as follows according to the ATP:
- The most total points combined from the Grand Slams, ATP Masters 1000 mandatory tournaments and Nitto ATP Finals main draws, and if still tied, then,
- The fewest events played, counting all missed Grand Slams, ATP Masters 1000 tournaments and Nitto ATP Finals they could have played – as if played, and if still tied, then,
- The highest number of points from one single tournament, then, if needed, the second highest, and so on.
What is the ATP Race to Turin
The Nitto ATP Finals are open to the top seven competitors in the ATP Race To Turin after the last week of the regular season on November 11. One current-year Grand Slam winner qualifies in eighth place if he is placed between positions eighth and twenty in the Race. If there are two Grand Slam champions from the current year who are placed between eighth and twenty in the Race, the player who is placed highest among them advances as the eighth and final qualifier, while the player who is placed lower serves as the alternate. The participant at position eight in the Race will be awarded the eighth and final spot if no current-year Grand Slam champions are positioned between positions eight and twenty.
The ATP Race to Turin will always be based on points gained in the current season and the standings will only align with the rankings themselves at the conclusion of the season.
What is the points breakdown for all tournament categories?
* ATP Finals, 1500 for undefeated Champion (200 for each round robin match win, plus 400 for a semi-final win, plus 500 for the final win)
Note: In 2023, due to all points being stripped from Wimbledon and the cancellation of the Shanghai Masters last year, players will count three Grand Slams, seven Masters 1000s and nine ‘best other’ events. At the conclusion of 2023 Wimbledon, players who chooses to compete in the Wimbledon main draw must have their points from that Grand Slam count and reduce the number of ‘best other’ events counted to eight. A player who also chooses to play the 2023 Shanghai Masters must count his 2023 Shanghai points, further reducing the number of ‘best other’ results he counts to seven.

Kyrgios’ season has been riddled by various injuries, which have ruled him out of all four grand slams and resulted in his ranking falling well outside the top 100.
He pulled out of the Australian Open on the eve of his home grand slam, citing a nasty cyst in his knee that required surgery.
Kyrgios also sustained a laceration on his foot while helping his family chase down a man who allegedly threatened his mother with a gun and then stole his Tesla.
But despite being out of action, Kyrgios has scored a new job commentating on the end of season World Tour Finals in Turin, Italy that begin later this week.
The ATP Finals see the world’s top eight players based on the calendar year rankings face off in a round robin format to crown the best player of the season.
It’s been announced Kyrgios will join the Tennis Channel to commentate on the prestigious event.
The channel said in a statement: “Nick Kyrgios, whose electric style of play and straight-to-the-point conversational approach have endeared him to millions of fans around the world, is joining Tennis Channel as an analyst during its coverage of the ATP Finals November 12-19.
“It will be Kyrgios’ first time working with the network, and it will happen during the most exclusive event in men’s tennis, with just the top eight singles players and doubles teams qualifying for the event based on points earned during the 2023 season.”
Kyrgios is known for having one of the sharpest tactical minds in tennis and the move could set himself up to be the next John McEnroe of commentary.
The former Wimbledon finalist is a major drawcard for TV networks and was one of the subjects of Netflix’s Break Point documentary.
Novak Djokovic will be aiming to win the ATP Finals for the sixth time after claiming victory at the Paris Masters. Iga Swiatek won the women’s end of season event this week in dominant fashion.
Kyrgios has shared glimpses of his injury rehab on social media and will likely target a return to the court at January’s Australian Open.

For the second consecutive year, Iga Swiatek finishes the year as the WTA World No.1. Swiatek won her final 11 matches of the season en route to titles at WTA 1000 Beijing and the WTA Finals, marking the first time since 2009 that the No.1 ranking changed hands at the year-end championships.
The WTA Finals champ, the World No.1 and another Iga Swiatek masterclass
In 17 Tour-level events (not including United Cup which does not crown an individual title winner), Swiatek reached the semifinals 12 times and also advanced to finish as runner-up at two WTA 1000 tournaments – Dubai and Madrid – winning a Tour-leading six titles.
Swiatek returns to the top of the WTA Rankings for the first time since holding the World No.1 ranking for 75 consecutive weeks. At 22 years old, she becomes the sixth youngest player in Tour history to finish the year at No.1 in consecutive seasons, followed by Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis and Caroline Wozniacki.

About the year-end Top 10
Swiatek’s end of season move to No.1 pushes Aryna Sabalenka to No.2 in the final rankings. Swiatek and Sabalenka are the only two players to hold the WTA World No.1 this season; Sabalenka held the No.1 ranking for eight weeks.

Americans in Top 10: Gauff is the first American teenager to finish in the year-end Top 10 in consecutive years since Serena Williams (1999, 2000). This year marks the first time that two Americans have finished in the year-end Top 5 since 2010, when Serena Williams and Venus Williams finished at No.4 and No.5 respectively.
Greek streak: Sakkari finishes the year in the Top 10 for the third consecutive year. She has maintained her Top 10 ranking since making her debut on September 27, 2021.
Big leaps lead to first-time Top 10 finishes: Muchova, Rybakina and Vondrousova are all finishing in the year-end Top 10 for the first time in their careers.
