Few sports unite people from around the world like tennis. From actors to princesses to regular old folks, everyone loves a good match. Players come from all continents to compete on the world stage at big events like Wimbledon, the United States Open, the Australian Open, and the French Open. 

If a tennis pro wants to become ranked, he or she will participate in tournaments hosted by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), and Women's Tennis Association (WTA). The best results from the last year are pooled into a points system, and the athlete with the most points is ranked the highest. We took a look at current rankings for both men and women and put together a list of the top 15 from each category.
