How does the tennis ranking system work?
The ATP determines tennis world rankings by awarding points based on a player's performance in specific tournaments.
The higher a player advances in a sanctioned tournament, the more points they will receive.
Grand slams award the most points, with the champion receiving 2000 and the runner-up receiving 1200.
Points earned from each competition are valid for one year, with standings updated weekly.
