ATP World Tour Finals

After the majors, one of the highlights of the tennis season is the ATP World Tour Finals. This annual event runs every November at the O2 Arena in London and features the eight best singles players and doubles pairings from the previous calendar year battling it out in this prestigious end-of-season tournament. This is one of the most important tournaments on the ATP calendar and the fans love it.

The ATP World Tour Finals offers the best players a great prize fund of $5million as well as the honour of being the No. 1 player of that season. With every entrant being one of the top players over the last season, every game plays like the end games in the major tournaments.Any player can win any game and they are all trying their best to get one over their rivals and show they are the best tennis player in the world.

The Tournament

Throughout the year, tennis players get points for their performance in each tournament they enter. The ATP uses these points to produce a rankings list of the best players over the previous year. The tennis players in the top eight positions at the end of the world qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals.

Played over a week in November, the top eight players battle it out in two groups playing a round-robin format. The two best players in each group then play off through the semi-finals and final to find the champion.Last year, Roger Federer won the men’s tournament and the pairing of Daniel Nestor and Max Mirnyi won the doubles tournament.

The Best Men

Tennis fans from around the country will love this great tournament and the last opportunity to see the best players compete before they pack away the racquet’s for the winter. With the top players, like Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic battling it out to take the title from defending champion Roger Federer, the hard court action will thrill tennis fans.


As well as the top individual players, the tournament also features the top men’s doubles pairing battling it out in their own tournament. This tournament works on the same round-robin basis, and the winners can claim to be the top doubles players in the world.
