The ATP Masters tournaments (previously known as ATP Masters Series) is a series of nine tennis tournaments featuring the top-ranked players on the ATP Tour. The series is the most prestigious in men's tennis after the four Grand Slams. The series' event are held annually in Europe, North America and Asia since the debut of ATP Tour in 1990.
In singles, Novak Djokovic holds the record for the most titles with 36 since the Masters Series began in 1990. By completing the set of all nine Masters 1000 singles titles by 2018, Djokovic became the first and only player to complete the Career Golden Masters. Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray have each won seven different titles. In 2020, Djokovic completed his Career Double Golden Masters.
The series was introduced in 1990 with the inception of the ATP Tour by bringing together the nine most prestigious tournaments of the preceding Grand Prix tennis circuit. Results in ATP Masters events earn players more ranking points than regular tournaments but less than Grand Slam events or the year-end ATP Finals. Up until 2007, most Masters Series finals were contested as best of five set matches, but from 2008 all Masters Series events were decided in best of three set matches.
As part of a shake-up of the tennis circuit in 2009, the Masters Series became the ATP Tour Masters 1000, with the addition of the number 1000 referring to the number of ranking points earned by the winner of each tournament. Contrary to earlier plans, the number of tournaments was not reduced from nine to eight and the Monte-Carlo Masters remained part of the series although, unlike the other events, it does not have a mandatory player commitment. The Hamburg Masters event was downgraded to an ATP Tour 500 event. The Madrid Masters moved to May and onto clay courts. A new tournament in Shanghai replaced the Hamburg Masters and took over Madrid's former October indoor slot. In 2011, six of the nine Masters level tournaments were combined ATP and WTA events.
