World Tour Finals London

World Tour Finals London
It has been a fantastic year for tennis as a whole. Many of us will remember Andy Murray’s Gold Medal at the Olympics followed by his maiden slam title at Flushing Meadows New York. Azarenka enjoyed a Djokovic- esque unbeaten run at the start of the season and Serena won 2 slams and the Gold medal. Sharapova completed the Sharapova slam winning the French Open in June and who can forget Roger taking his 17th slam home on the green grass of Wimbledon. London’s O2 arena hosts probably one of the best tournaments of the year in terms of quality and attendance, the ATP Barclays World Tour Finals host the best 8 singles and doubles pairings in the world in a unique round robin format. It always book ends the season nicely and many call it the unofficial 5th slam.

Home hopes will rest on Andy Murrays shoulders once again, having come through a tough 3 setter against Tomas Berdych Murray will need to be at his best to beat Novak Djokovic in his next game on Wednesday. The two met in Shanghai last month and despite having match points Murray succumbed to the Serb. Berdych and Tsonga will still fancy their chances of progressing as both revel in the indoor courts of the O2 arena. 6 time winner Roger Federer leads the second group, also in the group are maiden Masters title winner David Ferrer, Juan Martin Del Potro and Janko Tipsarevic. A tough group but on paper the least difficult of the two. Group games finish on Saturday evening when the top two will progress to the semis on Sunday and final on Monday. Stay tuned, yours truly is going over :)
