ATP Supporting UNICEF At The Nitto ATP Finals

The ATP will donate £100 per ace hit at The O2 this week

The ATP is once again supporting UNICEF, working together to try to make the world a better place for children. 

For every ace hit at the 2018 Nitto ATP Finals in singles and doubles, the ATP will donate £100. In 2017, the ATP donated £30,400 for the 304 aces struck at the season finale to help protect children in danger around the world. And since 2016, the Nitto ATP Finals has helped raise more than £300,000 for the world's leading children's organisation.

The ATP has also given fans a chance a special opportunity in 2018 to buy a limited number of tickets to round-robin play for just £10 and an accompanying booking fee, from which £10 for each ticket is being donated to UNICEF.

Entering this year’s Nitto ATP Finals, the tournament’s eight singles competitors had hit 4,860 aces in 2018, with six London contenders in the Top 12 on the ATP World Tour in the category this season, according to Infosys ATP Scores & Stats. John Isner (1,173) and Kevin Anderson (1,058), the eighth and fourth seeds at The O2, respectively, are the only players who have passed the 1,000-ace mark this year.
