What were the best ATP and WTA tournaments of 2023? The choice was made by men and women's tennis players, who were asked to vote for the best events, in their respective categories, of the season just ended. Other ATP Awards were thus assigned to the best ATP Master 1000, 500 and 250.

The awards were respectively assigned to the Indian Wells, Queen's and Bastad tournaments. Played on three different surfaces: hard, grass and clay-courts. California (USA), UK and Sweden are the countries that host these tournaments.

The WTA Awards always went to Indian Wells for the WTA 1000 category, Charleston for the WTA 500 and Cluj-Napoca for the 250. The players focused above all on the hospitality and organization of the event, as well as another series of parameters.
