ATP Finals bid a final farewell to London

Tennis is back in London this weekend, as the O2 Arena once again hosts the annual ATP Finals, albeit for the twelfth and final time before it relocates to Turin for 2021. The most prestigious non-Grand Slam tournament in men’s tennis, the event features the eight currently top ranked singles and doubles players on the circuit, and therefore proves to be hugely popular with spectators, as is the generous prize money with the players. However, with Covid-19 still raging, this year’s matches will sadly be played behind closed doors. Rafa Nadal, fresh from his 1000th ATP Tour win, joins Novak Djokovic as the top seeds, followed by the likes of Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and reigning champion, Stefanos Tsitsipas, so it’s sure to be a highly competitive week, even without the side-lined Roger Federer and Sir Andy Murray. Unfortunately, Jamie Murray and his partner Neal Skupski are reliant upon a withdrawal, having narrowly missed out on the doubles, although Joe Salisbury will at least be flying the home flag. With vaccines and hope on the horizon, and Christmas around the corner, what better time to buy some Wimbledon 2021 tickets and debentures, and see these superstars for real.
