Sources

The following are the sources of information for the Association of Tennis Professionals Web site:

  • Michel Sutter, Winners Winners 1946-2003 , Paris 2003. For each tournament, he has indicated the date of the final , The winner, the runner-up, and the final score. A tournament is included in his list if: (1), the draw for the tournament included at least eight players (with a few exceptions, such as the Pepsi Grand Slam tournaments in the second half of the 1970s); And (2), the level of the tournaments was at least equal to the present-day challenger tournaments. Sutter’s book is the most comprehensive source of tennis tournament information since World War II, Even though some professional tournaments held before the start of the open era are missing. Later, Sutter issued a second edition of his book, with only the players, their wins, and years for the period of 1946 through April 27, 2003.
