Since 2020, the ATP launched a Mental Health program together with Headspace (a successful meditation app) and Sporting Chance, founded by Tony Adams. It was the former English footballer who gave a talk with Jamie Murray.
The talk was the start of a series that is open to players, coaches, agents and workers of ATP tournaments, with the aim of promoting health development in ATP members.
Tony Adams, who was captain and emblem of Arsenal and the England team, had alcohol problems during his career. During the talk, Adams spoke with ATP members about their experiences, from their moments of addiction and low self-esteem, anxiety and depression to the great moments on the court and their recovery. Adams recounted how difficult his path was and the lessons he learned from dealing with his problems and the pressures of professional sports.
At the close of his career, Adams founded Sporting Chance, a non-profit foundation that aims to treat, advise and accompany the people of sport.
