The 1985 Nabisco Grand Prix was a professional men's tennis circuit held that year. It consisted of 71 tournaments held in 19 different countries. The tour incorporated the four ITF grand slam tournaments, three World Championship Tennis tournaments and the Grand Prix tournaments. Total prize money for the circuit was $23 million. The circuit was administered by the Men's International Professional Tennis Council (MIPTC).[1] In November 1985 the MIPTC sued player-management agencies ProServ and IMG alleging that these firms were holding the tennis game hostage and were 'exerting extensive power over players'.[2][3]

The 1985 circuit marked the last time the Australian Open was held in November before moving to its current slot in January. In January 1986 at an awards ceremony in New York the ATP players elected Ivan Lendl as the 1985 ATP Player of the Year.[4] Lendl won the most tournament titles, played the most finals, was the points leader of the Grand Prix circuit and finished the year as no.1 in the ATP Ranking. The Grand Slam tournaments were won by four different players (Wilander, Edberg, Becker, Lendl) and for the first time since 1934 all winners were European.[1]

Standings

The 1985 Grand Prix tournaments were divided in 18 separate point categories, ranging from the Grand Slam tournaments (700 points for the Singles winner and 120 points for Doubles winner) to the smallest Regular Series tournaments (80 points for the Singles winner and 15 points for Doubles winner). At the end of the year the top 64 Singles players and top 24 Doubles players received bonuses from a $4,000,000 bonus pool. To qualify for a bonus a player must have participated in at least 14 tournaments. The best 16 players in the points standing at the end of the season qualified for the Nabisco Masters which was played in January 1986.[1]
