In 1990, the ATP took over the world circuit and decided on a number of changes: one was that the top nine tournaments in the Grand Prix Championship Tour Seriesmade between 1970 and 1989, was renamed Masters 1000. These are of great importance and are only below the four Grand Slams as well as the ATP Finals.
The M1000 currently contested are: Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo, Madrid, Rome, Montreal/Toronto, Cincinnati, Shanghai and Paris. Previously there were locations in Stockholm (1990-1994), Stuttgart (1995-2001) and Hamburg (1990-2008).
