The ITF, or International Tennis Federation, was formed in 1913 and is responsible for the rules of the sport, the specifications, and the technicalities. It takes care of organizing the 4 Grand Slams, the Davis Cup, the Fed Cup, the Hopman Cup, the Olympics, and the lower-level circuits.

The ATP, or Association of Tennis Professionals, and the WTA, or Women's Tennis Association, formed in 1972 and 1973, respectively, are responsible for organizing the top-level circuit: the ATP and WTA World Tours, the Masters, the WTF, the 500s, the 250s, and the Challengers. It further handles the rankings.
