2009 saw the return of Brisbane to the tennis circuit, boasting its $82 million tennis center with a center court dedicated to local hero Pat Rafter. This meet is one of this season's joint male/female tennis stops, with the WTA and the ATP coming together to provide double the tennis thrills. The WTA Tour is the female professional tennis circuit organised by the Womens Tennis Association. There's well over 2000 players competing for close to $90 million in prize money at over 50 events in more than 50 countries. Not bad for a competition that has humble beginnings in the 1970s when Billie Jean King and 8 other trailblazers started women's professional tennis! The ATP World Tour is the male tennis circuit organized by the Association of Tennis Professionals comprising of the best tennis tournaments in the world. It includes the four ultra-prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, the inter-country battles of the Davis Cup, the top ranking the ATP World Tour Masters 1000, the slighter lower tier ATP World Tour 500 series, the lowest ranked ATP World Tour 250 series and, to round off the year and sort out the rankings, the ATP World Tour Finals.
