What you need to know about #ATPMasters1000

ATP Masters 1000, which debuted as a series in 1990, features the best men's tennis players at nine top tournaments on the ATP Tour calendar. Champions at Masters 1000 events earn 1,000 ATP Rankings points. 

Masters 1000 Reigning Champions

Seven different players – Hubert Hurkacz, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Cameron Norrie and Novak Djokovic – have claimed ATP Masters 1000 titles in 2021. Zverev is the only winner of multiple Masters 1000s this season, with triumphs at the Mutua Madrid Open and Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the BNP Paribas Open was rescheduled for October, while the Rolex Shanghai Masters was cancelled. In 2020, the ATP Tour calendar featured three Masters 1000 events. Djokovic won the first two – the Western & Southern Open in August and the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in September – and Medvedev concluded the series with the Rolex Paris Masters title.
