In golf, the Masters tournament has the highest tradition and honor among the four major tournaments. The Masters Tournament held at Augusta National Golf Club in the U.S. in April is literally the ‘artisan competition’ with the best players participating. In tennis, there are tournaments called Masters. If the Masters is the best tournament in golf, the Masters in tennis is just below the four major tournaments. It is a tour event with status and authority next to the four majors such as Wimbledon and the ATP Finals. (Refer to this corner #915, ‘Why do we say ‘tour’ in tennis’) The
etymology of the word ‘Masters’ is ‘Magister’ in Latin. Masters is the plural of master. Originally, master means head, teacher, director, master. From the ancient times of the West to the pre-modern era, it was mainly used in master-servant relationships based on differences in social status. It meant a master who had servants, servants, slaves, etc. In modern times, master was used as a general noun meaning a craftsman who learned a certain skill or content. When used as a verb, ‘mastered’ means mastery or proficiency. The German word ‘Meister’ also includes the meaning of master, so it can be seen that it actually means the same thing. In martial arts, a person called a master means a master. In addition, master is also used to mean a master’s degree between a doctorate and a bachelor’s degree. It should be said that the word master, which has multiple meanings, essentially contains the meaning of the best. (See Episode 93 of this corner, ‘Why do they say ‘Masters’?)
