The Association of Tennis Professionals, or the ATP, was formed in 1972 to protect the interests of male professional tennis players. The ATP are the main organisers of worldwide tennis events for men and have linked these tournaments with their own name, such as the ATP Masters Tournaments. The counterpart organisation in the women’s game is the Women’s Tennis Association.
Aside from protecting the interests of male professional tennis players, the ATP also embarked on a computerised ranking system for all players which still remains today. Such a device was created as a fair way of assessing a players yearly performance, as well as an objective means for entry into tournaments. Currently, Pete Sampras has been number 1 for the highest amount of accumulated weeks (286 weeks), whereas Roger Federer has been number 1 for the most consecutive amount of weeks (237 weeks).
The Association of Tennis Professionals have been using MailBigFile for 3 years now, starting their account up in 2008. As a what is now large governing body, the ATP rely on MailBigFile’s easy-to-use and secure method of sending files so they can then get on with the really important tennis stuff. Our Business Account also allows them to retain their corporate identity by integrating their image onto their pages.
