ITF Men's Tour in 2022
The ITF Men's World Tennis Tour offers entry-level professional tennis tournaments.
This is the entry-level of professional tennis. ITF tournaments typically consist of a few former top 100 players in the final stages of their careers, players returning from injury, and young up-and-comers who are just beginning their tennis careers.
Results from ITF tournaments count towards the ATP rankings, allowing professionals to advance to the ATP Challenger Tour (all Challenger bets) and then the ATP Tour, and eventually the Grand Slams. The winner of an ITF tournament earns 20 ATP pts, while the runner-up earns 12 pts.
By the end of 2021, all current Top 100 ATP players have been through the ITF player pathway, and 80 of the Top 100 ATP players have been through the ITF Juniors.
For young tennis players, making the cut opens a gateway to the elite levels of men's professional tennis.
Betting on the ITF Men's
The ITF Men's World Tennis Tour rebounded from the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 with a strong 2021 season that saw nearly 8,000 players compete in 759 tournaments.
The benefit of a large number of tournaments is that there is always an ITF tournament in progress to bet on since the season never stops from January to December.
The men's tour features tournaments in 70 countries and incorporates two tournament prize levels: $15,000 and $25,000.
Tournaments at the $15,000 level include reserved main draw spots for ITF Top 100 juniors, providing them with a seamless pathway to break into elite professional tennis.
The ITF Men's World Tour is also designed to reduce costs for players and ultimately allow more players to earn a living (all tennis betting).
Recommended Betting on the ITF World Tour
The ITF World Tour tournaments are always great events to watch and an ideal opportunity for bettors to bet on the future stars of tennis.
Some of the most promising professional tennis players aim to follow in the footsteps of their elders when they converge on the ITF tour.
One thing to keep in mind when making a bet is that young players are limited in the number of tournaments they are allowed to play. As a result, their ranking can often be lower than it should be.
Bet on ITF competitions
ITF organizes other major tennis competitions, such as the Davis Cup (all Davis Cup bets) and the Olympic Games.
