A compromise between the ITF and the ATP was announced on December 9 1999, by which the Grand Slam Cup was merged with the ATP World Championship (the ATP's year-end tournament), which was also held annually in Germany, giving birth to the Tennis Masters Cup, which would be an official tour event.
In the eyes of most tennis fans, this was the end of the Grand Slam Cup because the Tennis Masters Cup is generally viewed as a continuation of the ATP World Championship, not the Grand Slam Cup.
This situation occurred at the 2004 Tennis Masters Cup (in Houston, USA), where the 8th ranked player in the ATP Champions Race, Andre Agassi, was excluded from the event in favor of Gastón Gaudio, who had won that year's French Open but was ranked 10th at the end of the year.
