ATP TENNIS WEEKLY
Off i c i a l N e w s o f t h e ATP

NEW YORK, NY, U.S.A. -- The ATP announced on
the eve of the US Open that in 2007 it will increase
prize money, establish a multi-million marketing
fund and introduce significant changes to the way
the sport is played on its circuit. In a plan designed
to build on the success of this tennis season, the
changes reflect the ATP’s desire to enhance both
player and fan experience at tournaments.
“We plan to transform men’s professional tennis
into an integrated entertainment business based on
what makes sense to fans, players, tournaments
and media,” said ATP Executive Chairman and
President Etienne de Villiers. “We are going to
actively create more stars, enhance the entertainment
element of tournaments and place a much
greater emphasis on marketing and promotion. The
ATP wants to change the game not because the
product is broken but rather because it’s so strong
right now that I find it unacceptable we are not maximizing
its potential.”
ATP World No. 3 Ivan Ljubicic, a member of the
ATP Player Council, said: “I support the new direction
and leadership of the ATP, and I’m glad that
they realize that change is overdue. With Etienne’s
leadership and vision, I’m confident that we are
heading in the right, positive direction for the ATP
and tennis.”
The ATP will introduce a number of enhancements
to the 2007 circuit that seek to improve the
on-court game for players and spectators alike:
START EARLY, FINISH STRONG
Many tournaments will begin not on the traditional
Monday but on Sunday, when ATP tournaments will
feature singles and doubles matches, pro-ams,
charity events and family activities. ATP tournaments
will phase in Sunday Starts next year, with 8-
day events mandatory by 2009.
“You don’t open a movie on a Monday morning,
and we shouldn’t start our tournaments then either,”
said ATP Chief Marketing Officer Phil Anderton,
hired by the ATP in March as its first-ever CMO. “We
want tournaments to begin in a fun-filled, festival
atmosphere, and build interest as events culminate
in an exciting final weekend.”
ROUND-ROBIN FORMAT TO COME
ATP tournaments will introduce a round-robin format
at circuit events, with plans to use it more fully
the following two seasons. The format increases
spectators’ chances of seeing their favorite stars,
as one loss in a round-robin pool does not automatically
eliminate a player, and also improves scheduling
for broadcasters and tournament promotion.
"I have said it at our meetings with Etienne, I think
this is a great idea,” said Rafael Nadal. “Finally we
really move forward and we do something really
good for our sport. This will be good for our tournaments,
for us the players and especially for fans
and television since they will be able to have and
see their favorite players more than once for sure."
BEST-OF-5 SETS TO BE ELIMINATED
ATP tournaments with few exceptions will feature
best-of-3-sets matches including finals, a change
to ensure player health throughout the season. The
shorter length of the match also will benefit broadcasters
by offering an entertainment product with a
more predictable, reasonable length.
“The players strongly support the move away
from best-of-5-sets finals at ATP tournaments,” said
James Blake, a member of the ATP Player Council.
“This is one step toward ensuring that the last two
players standing at any given tournament aren’t
sidelined the next week or even longer.”
