What began as a conversation in 2019, sparked a global movement to reform and grow the business of tennis.

The PTPA is an organization created BY the players FOR the players. We are the leading advocate for professional tennis players worldwide and we serve to support, protect and advance players’ well-being on and off the court.

We aim to maximize the power of the collective and united player body to ensure fair representation and consideration. We work on behalf of the best interests of all players and players alone and do not answer to any other stakeholders.

In 2019, Vasek Pospisil and Novak Djokovic realized that the association that was founded in 1972 to protect the interests of professional tennis players, had grown into an anti-competitive organization that it once vowed to protect the players from. Vasek and Novak were inspired to launch a grassroots movement.

In 2020, at the US Open, their inspiration had grown into a movement, and that movement matured into an association committed to advocating for all players, at all levels, free from all conflicts of interest, so all players could focus on what they do best: train, compete and win — without worry.

In 2021, The Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) was formally founded as a not-for-profit corporation in Canada that addresses player challenges and influences fair change within the business of professional tennis.
