The ATP’s top brass discuss the prospect of adding a grass Masters tournament to the tour’s schedule.

grass Masters.

After the French Open, there are three weeks until Wimbledon, as Gaudenzi recently told TennisMagazin.de. The only surface that a Masters 1000 tournament does not take place on is grass. This means that ATP fans will have to wait (more than) two months between Rome and the Canada Masters in the summer before seeing any premium content.

Given that most players begin their grass-court seasons in the middle of the three weeks preceding Wimbledon, a grass Masters is logical.

An ATP grass court Masters is possible, according to Gaudenzi.

Halle and Queen’s are two of the best universities in the world, and their teams always feature a bevy of A-list players.

If Queen’s is granted a Masters 1000 license, London would join Melbourne as the only cities to host both the Grand Slam and the Masters 1000 in tennis. The French Open and the Paris Masters are two of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world. As Gaudenzi elaborated, “the Germans love tennis and its history.”

The UK market is exactly the same. It has the same odds of hosting a grass Masters as Germany. Because of this, the players won’t have to travel to London just to prepare for Wimbledon. However, London is home to Wimbledon. Ten ATP Masters 1000 tournaments are scheduled for the future.

Wimbledon runner-up Nick Kyrgios has long advocated for the creation of a grass Masters tournament. Whether or not the ATP decides to introduce a Masters tournament beginning in 2023 is currently unknown.
