I know this may sound really stupid but I can't tell the difference between an ATP Masters Series and an ATP Tournament. Like Monte Carlo is a Masters Series but Queens Club isn't. I dont know the difference between the two. Like when I look on wikipedia its just very unclear. Thanks guys

That can all be found on the ATP site, but basically, there are 3 tiers of ATP tournaments now. 250, 500 and Masters 1000. The numbers mean the amount of ranking points the winner gets. The Masters are basically one level below the Majors. They are mandatory tournaments (with the exception of Monte Carlo.)
