The ATP schedule 2024 is now out there for tennis fans around the world to see. Once again, the stage is set for an action-packed year of top-level tournaments from all over the world. And in my opinion, it should be one of the most exciting seasons we’ve witnessed in recent times.
On the one hand, Novak Djokovic is looking to extend his dominance over the rest of the pack and capture even more Grand Slam titles. Yet on the other hand, the young guns are now making a real push to take the throne that he has held for so long. This alone means that the ATP schedule 2024 should host some truly legendary matches.
Additionally, we have confirmation of the Nadal 2024 comeback, which just adds even more spice to the upcoming season. However, when it comes to exact tournaments, when they are played, and what you can expect from them, that’s precisely what I’d like to get into now.
Overview of the ATP schedule 2024
Looking ahead to the key details of the ATP schedule 2024, tennis fans will not be disappointed with what’s coming up over the next 12 months. Concerning key numbers, the schedule reveals that a grand total of 63 ATP-sanctioned events will be held across a whopping 29 countries. Additionally, it’s a unique year since the 2024 Olympics also form part of the schedule.
However, if you wanted to include every single event that’s listed in the ATP schedule 2024 – the total number of events is actually 70. This includes those that aren’t strictly ‘ATP sanctioned’, so to speak. As you may have guessed, this covers team events such as the Laver Cup, Davis Cup, and others.
Furthermore, if you wish to mark the official start date for the ATP schedule 2024 on your calendar, it will all begin on December 28th, 2023. This is in line with the WTA schedule 2024 because the season officially kicks off with the United Cup – the only mixed team event of the year.
As for when it all comes to a close, the season is set to officially conclude in November 2024, although the exact date has not yet been revealed.
Anyway, the schedule clearly looks promising! And I will now go into further detail about the key tournaments that make up the full season.
ATP schedule 2024 – the four majors and ATP Finals
Despite the 60+ tournaments set to be played in 2024, as always, it’s the four majors that form the backbone of the ATP Tour. I say that because these are the most significant tournaments held each season.
Adding to that, the top performers in these majors, which combines with individual performances in other events, lead to the ‘chosen ones’ who will qualify for the ATP Finals at the end of the year. Needless to say, you will certainly want to get these five tournaments registered in your calendar too.
So on that note, let me cover the key dates and locations for these five tournaments in line with the ATP schedule 2024.
Australian Open 2024
The 2024 season is kicking off down under with the United Cup, as you’ve seen above. However, January 2024 will also host the Australian Open – the first of the four majors set to be played between January 14th and January 28th, 2024.
Roland Garros 2024
There are a few months between the first Grand Slam of the ATP schedule 2024 and the second. Of course, the second one is Roland Garros, also known as the French Open. And this clay court event, held in Paris, will run from May 20th to June 9th, 2024.
The tournament many consider to be the most prestigious in tennis will be held from July 1st to July 14th, 2024. As you can see, these are the dates for Wimbledon 2024, and this grass court event should be extremely interesting following last year’s surprises.
US Open 2024
Wrapping up the Grand Slam calendar, the ATP Tour heads to New York for the US Open between August 26th and September 8th, 2024. This hard-court tournament is always a thrill, and just like the other events, plenty is at stake in 2024.
ATP Finals 2024
Following the results from all qualifying tournaments in the ATP schedule 2024, the top eight performers will head to Turin for the ‘end-of-year finals’. These are set to begin on November 11th, 2024, and this is the last sanctioned event of the ATP calendar for 2024.
Masters 1000 events – how the ATP schedule 2024 is shaping up
Following the tiers of professional tennis, it’s the Masters 1000 events that are directly beneath the four majors. Of course, these are still huge events, and the ATP schedule 2024 is made up of nine of these tournaments.
Let me share the exact events and dates right now:
- March 4th – Indian Wells Masters, USA
- March 18th – Miami Open, USA
- April 8th – Monte Carlo Masters, Monaco
- April 22nd – Madrid Open, Spain
- May 6th – Italian Open, Italy
- August 5th – Montreal Open, Canada
- August 12th – Cincinnati Open, USA
- September 30th – Shanghai Masters, China
- October 28th – Paris Masters, France
To further clarify, each of these tournaments has 1000 points available for the respective winners – hence the ‘Masters 1000’ classification.
ATP schedule 2024 – the remaining tournaments
Given that I’ve covered the four majors, ATP Finals, and Masters 1000 tournaments so far, this leaves all of the remaining events. So, if we include all 70 tournaments that make up the ATP schedule 2024, by process of subtraction – this leaves a further 56 events that are set to take place next season.
More specifically, there are 13 ATP 500 tournaments, 38 ATP 250 tournaments, as well as 3 team events on the 2024 calendar. As for the other events that are missing, these include the Next Gen ATP Finals and the Summer Olympics.
However, it should be noted that for the Next Gen Finals, Davis Cup, Laver Cup, and Summer Olympics, no ATP rankings points will be awarded. This has been the case for several years now, so it’s no surprise that this trend will continue into 2024.
Nevertheless, all of these ‘extra tournaments’ should be very exciting in their own rights, and these put the icing on the cake for a truly mouthwatering ATP schedule 2024.
