ATP World Tour Masters 1000 logo

This page is an ongoing piece to make it far easier and much quicker for YOU to find the information that YOU are looking for about the MAJOR ATP Tour tournaments in 2013.

There are 10 ATP Tour major tournaments each year in addition to the four Grand Slams which, when combined (10+4) make up the “BIG 14” in tennis. The BIG 14 is a term coined by OnCourt Advantage in order to increase awareness that there are actually 14 big or major tournaments and not just four.

The 10 majors (listed below) consist of nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments and the final showdown or season finale : the year-end championships for which only the best eight performed players each year qualify called the ATP World Tour Finals.

Once completed this page will provide a directory for each of the major tournaments. The directory pages contain interesting and useful details including, how to buy official tickets, how to “Like” and “Follow” the official tournament Facebook and Twitter pages, the official tournament name given sponsorship naming rights, qualifying dates, main draw dates and the day of the singles final, the current title holder, centre court facts i.e. seating capacity and how long the event has been held.

Interestingly, on four occasions in 2013 two major ATP tournaments are held in back-to-back weeks: Indian Wells then Miami in March, Madrid followed by Rome in May, Montreal to Cincinnati in August plus Paris and London in late October through to early November.

Of the ten major ATP tournaments five are held on outdoor courts (Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal, Cincinnati and Shanghai), two on indoor hard courts (Paris and London) and three on clay courts (Monte-Carlo, Madrid and Rome).

Once the 2013 directory page is completed for each of these major tournaments a link to that page will be added to the name of the city where that major tournament will be held. The links appear in blue letters and contain that particular tournament’s index or directory page to all of the posts covered for that tournament here at OnCourt Advantage.
