The ATP Rankings track and rank all players on tour over a 52-week period. Points are awarded for performance, with larger tournaments awarding more points throughout the year.

Those rankings are used to determine many things, such as tournament seeding and who qualifies for the season-ending ATP Finals in Turin.

ATP ranking points awarded/tournament

With some minor changes for the 2024 season, the following points are awarded for tournaments at various tiers of the ATP Tour:

Competition type W F SF QF R16 R32 R64 R128 K
ATP Tour
Grand Slam 2000 1300 800 400 200 100 50 10 30
ATP Finals +900
(Max 1500)
(Max 1000)
200 for each round robin match win
(Max 600)
ATP Masters 1000 1000 650 400 200 100 50 10 (30) (10) 30 (20)
ATP 500 500 330 200 100 50 (25) 25 (16)
ATP 250 250 165 100 50 25 (13) 13 (8)

Permitted Matches

To prevent players from manipulating the rankings by playing a large number of smaller tournaments, only 19 tournaments are allowed throughout the year to make up the rankings.

That number does not include ATP Finals, which are considered an additional earned opportunity to win ranking points. However, larger and more prestigious tournaments are considered 'compulsory' entries. For example, if a player loses in a Grand Slam round, they are not allowed to drop out of the rankings in favor of the ATP 250 that earned them the most points.

Therefore, players competing in all mandatory events in a season will have the following breakdown of acceptable ranking points:

  • 4 Grand Slams
  • 8 Masters 1000
  • 7 'Best Other' shows

Rankings always cover the previous 52-week period, so any points are deducted from a player's total. However, that player will have the opportunity to 'protect' their points by repeating or improving on their previous performance.

A player who was a losing finalist at the US Open in 2023 will have 1200 points deducted from their ranking after the end of 2024. Those points will then be replaced by those won in the 2024 tournament.
