  BlackRock Tour of Champions
This unified worldwide circuit was comprised of the ATP Senior Tour of Champions in Europe (which was the successor of the ATP Senior Tour launched in 1992); the Nuveen Tour in North America (which began in 1993); and the Champions Tour on other continents, all sanctioned by the ATP Tour.
That was the time when the Tour format was standardized: as opposed to the 8- or 12-man singles elimination format previously used in the U.S.-based tournaments, the round-robin format used in Europe became and still is the format for the whole Champions Tour.
To be eligible to compete on the ATP Champions Tour, players must have been either a World No. 1 during their competitive playing careers, a Grand Slam singles finalist, or a singles player in a victorious Davis Cup team; and they should have retired from the ATP circuit.
