With the US Open in the final stages of the competition and the ATP World Tour Finals starting in November, the tennis season is coming to a close.
So who will come out on top? Can Andy Murray keep up his winning streak, or will a worthy opponent take him down? And what has happened to Roger Federer? We will try and fill you in on the world of professional tennis in the run up to the ATP Finals.
Whilst Andy Murray is going from strength to strength in the US Open, he’s now through to the quarter final; Roger Federer is out of the tournament in the fourth round. After a disappointing exit from Wimbledon in a second round defeat to the world number 116, Federer’s year is not going at all how he planned.
Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal is also through to the quarters but on the other side of the draw to Murray. This means that they won’t meet each other in the semis if they get through, but could mean a battle of the greats in the finals. Nadal has already qualified for the ATP Finals but it’s still all to play for to see who will make it through.
ATP World Tour Finals
To make it through to the ATP Finals you must be in the top 8 qualified singles players of the season. This is what makes the Finals so epic; the best of the best battle it out with nowhere to hide. Described by the Tour itself as “one-on-one gladiatorial battles” the Finals are no one to miss and the O2 in England’s capital has the privilege of hosting the event.
Before the end of the season the old-school champions will battle it out at the Statoil Masters in the beautiful Royal Albert Hall at the beginning of December. There are two events in the Masters: the Legends tournament and the Champions event. Some of the legends of tennis take part in the Masters such as John McEnroe, Tim Henman, Greg Rusedski and Fabrice Santoro.
