Can someone please explain to me the tier structure in place for the ATP?

With the WTA, I feel its more clear what type of tournaments there are. GS, Tier 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

For the ATP I find it more blurred. You get a bigger diversity in the rankings of players entering. A few top names enter each event, whereas in the WTA you don't find top players in low tier events. You get International Series and International Series Gold, but when I look at the names for commitments, I can't see a strong pattern.

Can anyone help? Maybe post the type of tiers, and give examples (or all even!) of tournaments in that category?

Thanks!

hmmm, let me try. Writing the all here is kinda pushing it a little, though, isnt it???

International Series events
35 race points - Adelaide, Sydney...
40 race points - Buenos Aires, Estoril...
45 race points - London-Queens Club, Halle...

International Series Gold events
50 race points - Dubai, Acapulco...
60 race points - Barcelona...

Tennis Masters Series events
100 points - All of them

Tennis Masters Cup
Dont remember exactly, but each round robin win means X points, and then it goes as the others.

Grand Slams
200 points - All of them

I took the rank points based on how many the WINNERS of each tournament wins. Also, it included only the tournaments played this season untill this week.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

The tennis masters cup winner, if undefeated gets 150 points.

20 per round robin win, for a total of 60, if three are won.

40 for the semi finals.

And 50 for winning the final.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

You´re welcome.
Its divided by both. Usually, the tournaments with more prestige award big prize money too.

But its kinda weird that we can have IS AND ISG awarding 50 race points for winners both...
