After finally tasting Wimbledon glory, becoming the first British player to lift the trophy in 77 years, Andy Murray is enjoying the year of his life. Tennis fans won’t want to miss out on seeing the Great Scot sign off 2013 in style by competing at the sport’s traditional season-ender, the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. Taking place at London’s 02 Arena on November 4th- 11th, the event brings together the eight best-ranked singles players and doubles teams to compete on a round-robin basis.
As ever, fans with ATP World Tour Finals tickets will be able to catch a galaxy of stars this year, with World Number One Novak Djokovic and living legend Roger Federer expected to compete, along with the first confirmed qualifier, Rafael Nadal. Returning after his shocking first-round exit at Wimbledon in June, the Spaniard is back with a steely resolve and the determination to prove he’s back on top of his game. Spectators will also be able to witness three-time Barclays ATP World Tour Finals champions the Bryan brothers work their magic on the doubles courts, where they look to be strong contenders for 2013’s title.
40 Years of Top Tennis
Established in 1970, the tournament has since gone through a number of evolutions and names changes over the years before moving to London in 2009 under its current guise. With winners of the tournament scoring the same number of World Ranking points as they would for coming first place in one of the Grand Slam tournaments, the stakes couldn’t be higher for the world’s top players, who slugged it out in some epic battles. Swiss master Federer is currently out in front with the most title wins – six – while legendary stars of the past such as Ivan Lendl, Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg all feature on the roll call of winners. Meanwhile, 2012 saw Djokovic lift his second title following his 2008 triumph.
