The individual championships consist of 32 singles players and 16 doubles teams. The selection of teams and individuals for the championships is based on won-lost record, strength of schedule and eligibility and availability of student-athletes.

The ATP is capitalizing on the mobile market as the fastest-growing access point to the web with the launch of two new mobile products that will expand its reach and broaden delivery of its rich stream of ATP World Tour content, including live scores and video.

 

Available today free of charge are the:

 

• ATPWorldTour.com mobile website for thousands of internet enabled mobile devices

 

• Barclays ATP World Tour Finals mobile applications for iPhone and Android

 

The new products complement last month’s launch of the free Pro Tennis Live scoring mobile application for the iPhone. An Android version of Pro Tennis Live is planned for next season.

 

The official live scoring mobile application allows fans to follow their favorite professional tennis players, including Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki and Serena Williams, in real time competing around the globe across 115 events in 43 countries throughout the season.

 

Pro Tennis Live features:

 

• Live Scores
• Real-Time Match Statistics
• Completed Matches
• Player Head-to-Head Statistics & Past Results

 

One frequent visitor to ATPWorldTour.com, the world’s most popular website dedicated to tennis, has already given the mobile website and apps the thumbs up. “Perfect, I’m always on the go and can now track stats and results in real-time,” says Roger Federer. “No doubt, fans are going to love the mobile site too.”

 

Compelling content available on the official ATP World Tour mobile website includes live scores, results and stats, rankings, latest news and analysis, photos and video highlights from 62 tournaments in 32 countries and thousands of player profiles. Continued enhancements are planned for 2011, including tournament draws and orders of play as well as Spanish and Chinese language versions.

 

The official Barclays ATP World Tour Finals mobile application, sponsored by Barclays, capitalises on fans’ interest in the Tour’s dramatic season-ending event held at The O2 in London from 21-28 November. The application will feature exclusive coverage and behind-the-scenes content surrounding the top eight singles players and doubles teams in the world, as they compete for the coveted final title of the season. Download the free application now for iPhone via the App store and Android via google market.

 

John Phillips, ATP senior vice president of digital marketing, says, “It’s exciting to bring official live scores, breaking news and video to more than a billion mobile web browsers around the world through m.ATPWorldTour.com. Particularly for a global sport with such a geographically diverse audience, we see the new mobile website and smart phone applications enabling an unprecedented increase in fan engagement and social sharing.”

In less than three weeks, the sports world will turn its focus to the National Tennis Center in New York City for the U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

 

What you may not know is that in the past ten years the tennis industry has reinvented itself and today is the “fastest growing traditional sport in America.”  From 2000-2009, tennis has grown a whopping 43-percent, while virtually every other traditional sport actually decreased in participation (according to the SGMA and Physical Activity Council).

 

In the late 1990’s, the USTA and the entire tennis industry knew they had to make some changes. Their goal was not just to engage new players, but to keep them playing the game. They created an overall approach starting with each market segment, from the youngest players (10&U) through high school, then college, and beyond.

 

Here are a few programs that resulted from this reinvention and how they are helping to grow the game.

 

10 & Under: One of the most significant developments was the creation of QuickStart Tennis play format (QST), which is designed to introduce kids 10&U to tennis in a fun and non-intimating way.  QST uses smaller courts, lower nets, bigger rackets, bigger balls and even an easier scoring system (comparable to how Little Leaguer’s learns baseball). QST has exploded. Today there are several thousand QuickStart courts across the country; more than 500 certified QuickStart trainers and 1,000 Community Tennis Associations that offer QuickStart Tennis.

 

No-Cut High School Tennis: Imagine a high school team with 75 or 100 players, or more.  The USTA has championed a new, one-of-a kind initiative called No-Cut HS Tennis, which has grown 40% in the past year.  Today, there are more than 3,300 No-Cut HS programs across the country, and that number is growing rapidly.

 

Tennis On Campus: Less than 5% of high school players play College Varsity tennis, so the USTA aggressively launched Tennis On Campus, a co-ed club tennis program.  Today, there are 30,000 players at 550 schools playing Tennis On Campus. The USTA also formalized a National Campus Championship with both Sectional Champions and 64 teams invited to the National Championships (this year in Surprise, AZ).

 

National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL): The USTA’s NJTL program is a nation-wide group of community tennis organizations that seek to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. This program gives all kids regardless of income, race and gender the opportunity to fully develop their tennis skills and at the same time instills in them the values of leadership and academic excellence. With over 530 registered chapters across the country and over 200,000 participants this program has provided an avenue for children everywhere to play tennis.

 

It's also interesting to note that 75 percent of new players in the sport are 25 and under.

 

These are just a few of the initiatives that the USTA has developed in an effort to increase the popularity of tennis and make it easy for people of all ages to enjoy the ‘Sport of a Lifetime.’

After USOpen.org introduced the most extensive live streaming in the history of the US Open in 2009, the official website of the US Open will go even further this year, airing all matches within all broadcast television windows on CBS Sports, ESPN2 and Tennis Channel.

 

Fans will be able to stream up to five matches simultaneously, and live streaming also will continue to integrate live match stats updates, fan comments and picture-in-picture capabilities.

 

There are also a number of expanded perks planned for this year's Open, some of which include:

 

TV Coverage

For the second consecutive year, ESPN2 will serve as the lead cable broadcaster for the US Open, providing approximately 100 hours of TV coverage and more than 260 hours of coverage on its signature broadband network ESPN3.com. Tennis Channel will provide “round the clock” coverage of the US Open in 2010, with nearly 250 hours of planned total coverage. In addition to live match coverage, Tennis Channel will bring fans up-to-speed with post-match highlight shows and next-day preview shows.

 

Microphones in the Players Boxes

For the first time, microphones have been installed in the player boxes in Arthur Ashe Stadium, which will help viewers get even closer to the emotion and drama of the US Open by adding the perspective of the players’ guests as matches unfold.

 

Television Fly-Over Cameras

Two television fly cameras will be installed – one over Arthur Ashe Stadium and one running from the stadium to the food court – which will allow fans a new overhead perspective of the excitement of the US Open.

 

For Your Mobile

Working with IBM, USOpen.org will expand on last year’s popular iPhone application to provide iPhone users on-site an “augmented reality” where they can take virtual tours of the US Open grounds. The feature uses GPS and camera functionality to allow fans to scan the grounds and look through walls to check live scores and stats on specific courts, and show locations and distances of food options, restrooms, first aid facilities, wheelchair accessibility and other information around the US Open.

I just learned boxer Manny Pacquiao ran away from home at 14 because his father ate the family dog. Now that's rough! http://bit.ly

 

Federer, on the other hand, used to cry when matches didn't go his way. Come to think of it, he still does. http://bit.ly/2Z0AOV

With 19 Grand Slam singles titles between them, Jim Courier, Andre Agassi and Mats Wilander headline the second-annual Cancer Treatment Centers of America Tennis Championships in Surprise, Arizona, October 8-11.  They will be joined by Mark Philippoussis, Wayne Ferreira, Aaron Krickstein, Jimmy Arias, and Mikael Pernfors as the eight-player field competes for $150,000 in the four-day, round-robin tournament.

 

The CTCA Championships at Surprise is the seventh of eight events on the 2009 Outback Champions Series, the global tennis circuit for champion tennis players age 30 and over.

 

"The players associated with the Champions Cup Series are all thrilled to finally have a competitive forum in the United States where they can show off their talents and continue to do what they do best -- play high quality, competitive tennis," said Jim Courier, founder of InsideOut Sports & Entertainment.

 

Andre Agassi, 61 career titles (8 Grand Slams) is the only player to achieve the “Golden Slam.” Mats Wilander, 40 career titles (8 Grand Slams) is the youngest man in history to win four grand slams by the age of 20. Jim Courier, 29 career titles (4 Grand Slams). Wayne Ferreira, 26 career titles, holds the male record for most consecutive Grand Slam appearances. Mark Philippoussis, a Wimbledon and US Open finalist. Jimmy Arias, at age 15, was the youngest player to achieve a world ranking. Aaron Krickstein, with 9 career titles was the youngest player to reach the world Top 10 at age 17. Mikael Pernfors, French Open Finalist.

 

Founded in 2005, the Outback Champions Series features some of the biggest names in tennis over the last 25 years, including 14-time major tournament champion Pete Sampras, four-time U.S. Open champion John McEnroe, two-time French and Australian Open champion Jim Courier and others. To be eligible to compete on the Outback Champions Series, players must have reached at least a major singles final, been ranked in the top five in the world or played singles on a championship Davis Cup team.

 

Matches are played in the best of three set format, with the 3rd set consisting of a Champions tie-break, defined as the 1st player to reach 10 points with a margin of 2 points.
