The ITF Men's World Tennis Tour serves as the entry level for professional tennis and sits between the ITF Junior World Tennis Tour and the elite levels of men’s professional tennis. The results of ITF tournaments are incorporated into the ATP Ranking, which enables professionals to progress to the ATP Challenger Tour and, ultimately, the ATP Tour.
The Tour offers approximately 550 tournaments across 70 countries and incorporates two prize money levels of tournaments: $15,000 and $25,000.
Tournaments at $15,000 level include reserved main draw places for Top 100-ranked ITF Juniors, providing a smooth pathway for the best new talent to break through into elite professional tennis. The ITF Men's World Tennis Tour is also designed to target prize money effectively to help reduce costs for players and ultimately enable more players to make a living.
