The two major associations are described below

ATP Tour
In 1988 members of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) convened a press conference in the parking lot at the US Open to announce to the world that they were taking over control of the game. The use of the parking lot emphasized the point that they were banned from using on-site facilities by the then ruling body, the Men's Tennis Council. By 1990 a significant number of players as well as tournament directors had signed up.

This has evolved into something that is quite unique in the sporting world, an equal partnership between players and tournament organizers. In January 2001 the ATP Tour name was shortened to ATP

WTA Tour
The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) went through a similar battle as the ATP to improve the lot of women tennis professionals. Back in 1970, women were being paid only one third of the prize money that men were earning.

It took a handful of determined players to buck the system and start up their own 3 tournament circuit.
In the following year this grew to 19 tournaments and the rest is history. Equal prize money for men and women's now the standard for international tennis.


Some facts and History of Australian open



The Australasian Tennis Championship were first held in 1905 at the Warehouseman's Cricket
Ground in St Kilda Road, Melbourne, in the same city that it was destined to return to for good.
It was originally organized by the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia, which has since been
renamed to Tennis Australia. After a brief break during the First World War, the women's singles
tournament was added in 1922 and the competition was renamed the Australian Championships in 1927.

More history and facts about Australian Open tennis here


 Real Tennis as it is called in Britain, Royal Tennis as it is called in Australia, Court Tennis as it is called in the States, Jeu de Paume as it is called in France or Tennis as it is properly known, is the oldest of all the racket games, and unlike most of the others, such as squash or lawn tennis, it is a product of evolution rather than pure invention.

 The game started to form into something recognizable in the 11th century. It started as hand ball, played by monks around the cloisters of monasteries in Italy and France, much as schoolchildren do in any appropriate corner of their school, and rules varied to suit local whims and conditions. Gradually, as monks traveled to other monasteries, the more enjoyable rules were more generally adopted, the more bizarre rules abandoned and people started to add features to their courtyards that improved the pastime, and demolish or modify others that detracted from it. The monks enjoyed the game so much that the Pope banned the playing of it, and by the 14th century the game had spread from cloister to castle and become a game of the nobility.



2004 winners of the Australian Open


Roger Federer takes title

Roger Federer's effort to win the Australian Open 2004 final against Marat Safin may not havebeen his prettiest, but was easily one of his sweetest.

New world number one Roger Federer comprehensively outplayed Marat Safin to win the Australian Open. Federer displayed the kind of breathtaking form which took him to the Wimbledon title last July in acommanding 7-6 6-4 6-2 win over Safin.

What a great start to the year," said Federer, who became world number one with his semi-final win over
Juan Carlos Ferrero.

"To win the Australian Open and become number one in the world is a dream come true.

After two hours and 15 minutes, 22 year old Roger Federer seized a double break in the third set to
take a 4-1 lead to beat an exasperated Marat Safin.
  Henin takes Australian crown

Justine Henin-Hardenne took her first Australian Open title with a dramatic 6-3 4-6 6-3 win over Kim Clijsters.

But Clijsters fought back to level the match, after falling 0-4 down. Henin-Hardenne found her form at the right time and for the third time to deny Clijsters a first major title. The turning point for Clijsters came at 3-4 in the deciding set.

The 20-    year-old twice had game point, but each time delivered a nervy double fault.

Henin-Hardenne forced a break point which Clijsters looked to have saved with a powerful drive volley on to the baseline. As Clijsters and the crowd celebrated, the umpire called the ball out and Clijsters could not recover.

Serving for the match, Henin-Hardenne held her nerve and after clinching the win, dropped to her knees to celebrate.
