The international organisations The Association of Tennis Professionals and the Women’s Tennis Association were founded to protect and represent the interests of professional tennis players. Accordingly, their short names are pronounced and spelled as: ATP for men and WTA for women. At the same time, these sport associations organise the ATP and WTA Tours, which are held among the strongest athletes around the world. The men’s tour consists of five categories: Masters Cup, 1000 Series, 500 Series, 250 Series and Challenger Tournaments. The Women’s Tour consists of a series of international tournaments, including 31 tournaments with small prize pools. Within these men’s and women’s tours, there is an official ATP and WTA ranking, which is calculated according to a special system based on the results that athletes have shown in the tour.
The Serbian Open is a professional tennis tournament held in spring on the outdoor clay courts in the Serbian capital, Belgrade.
