2006 ATP CALENDAR!!!

2006 ATP CALENDER CLICK HERE



ATP Announces 2006 Calendar

The ATP today announced its 2006 calendar, which comprises 64 tournaments in 31 countries and stamps tennis as the world’s leading international sports circuit. It is projected that more than 330 players from 55 countries will participate in ATP tournaments next year.

The ATP circuit is highlighted by nine premier tournaments, collectively known as the ATP Masters Series, and the Tennis Masters Cup, the circuit finale co-owned by the ATP, ITF and Grand Slams that in 2006 will be played for the second consecutive year in Shanghai, China.

See the 2006 ATP Calendar (PDF)

In 2006, 47 tournaments will be played outdoors - 24 events on clay, 18 on hard court, five on grass – and 17 tournaments will be played indoors.

Exactly half (32) of the tournaments – including five ATP Masters Series events – will be played in Europe. The first European event begins January 30 with the Internazionali di Lombardia and the final European event, the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris, concludes November 5.

The calendar features the second edition of Pilot Pen Tennis in New Haven, the new $650,000, 48-draw men’s tournament to be played in Connecticut alongside the Tier II Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event in the week before the US Open. The 2006 calendar also will feature the third year of the US Open Series, beginning with the RCA Championships in Indianapolis the week of July 17 and journeying to the Mercedes-Benz Cup in Los Angeles (July 24), the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington (July 31), the Rogers Masters (Canada) in Toronto (August 7), the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati (August 14) and Pilot Pen Tennis on the eve of the US Open.

Also on the calendar is the second edition of a new tournament in Ho Chi Minh City, the first ATP-level tournament ever held in Vietnam. The addition of Ho Chi Minh City reflects the ATP’s growing presence in Asia. In 2006, there will be six ATP tournaments in Asia, including the prestigious Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai. The other Asian tournaments are the Chennai Open; the China Open in Beijing; the Thailand Open in Bangkok; and the AIG Japan Open Tennis Championships in Tokyo, which was first held in 1972.

The 2006 season begins January 2 with three tournaments: the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, the Chennai Open in India and the Next Generation Hardcourts in Adelaide.

Re: 2006 ATP CALENDER!!!

The only change I see between this year and next is that Houston and Casablanca have traded places. This makes sense as those that wanting to play Houston won't now be faced with the choice of either going from Europe to the US and back again or missing Monte Carlo. So no more excuses for missing Monte Carlo then

Re: 2006 ATP CALENDER!!!

Most tournaments start rather later than this year, uh??

for example, I see Roland Garros begins at 29/05 next year when it begun at 23/05 this year

USA don't have many tournaments. Europe have half of circuit. Compare USA with Europe, no with Italy, France or Germany.

Europe - 37
North America - 17
Asia - 7
Oceania - 4
South America - 3
Africa - 1

USA - 15
France - 5
Germany - 5

Re: 2006 ATP CALENDER!!!

Houston before Monte Carlo

But... no big changes.

Please, put Aussie Open to March.

I don't like many tournaments out of South America and Spring Clay Seasson. 9 after Wimbledon Why?
