The ATP World Tour comes to a finish over the next week with the top tennis players across the world coming together in London for the ATP World Finals.Eight of the best singles and eight doubles pairs will fight it out for the final title of the year at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.
The players first play in two separate groups of four, with the top two from each of these groups going onto qualify for the semi-final knockout stages.
Novak Djokovic will still be harbouring hopes of finishing the 2013 at the top of the tennis world rankings and knows that victory in this tournament would still give him a chance of leap-frogging Rafael Nadal into first place.
The Serb comes off the back of victory in last weeks’ Paris Masters after beating David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5 on Monday and has been in good form so far this season.
He took the first Grand Slam of the season, the Australian Open, and has also picked up the Dubai Championships, the Monte Carlo Masters, the China Open and the Shanghai Masters.
He also won this tournament last season and is the early favourite with the bookies to win it again, with Boylesports currently offering the best odds of 6/5.
He’ll of course face competition from Nadal who is in the other Group, Group A but will the Spaniard be able to be as dangerous on the fast indoor courts?
He was almost unstoppable in the first half of the season, picking up the French Open and US Open along the way and is second favourite with the bookies to win the last tournament of the season.
Sportingbet provide the best odds on Nadal winning the tournament at 3/1.
Andy Murray would surely have been another major contender for the title but the Wimbledon champion pulled out in October as he’s still recovering from surgery on his back.
Fourth seed Juan Martin Del Potro joins Djokovic, Roger Federer and Richard Gasquet in Group B and the Argentinian will be hoping to add to his title sin Rotterdam, Washington, Tokyo and Basel this year.
All these tournament victories came on hard court as the O2 is, and Boylesports offer the best price on him winning the tournament at 8/1.
Federer has slipped down to sixth in the world rankings and has only picked up one tournament win this season. He’s surely the only other player who could potentially win the tournament and you can back him with Paddy Power at 10/1.
The opening match of the tournament comes from Group A where Tomas Baerdych faces Stanislas Warinka tomorrow afternoon.
This match starts at 2pm and you can watch it live on BBC2.
Then on Sky Sports 3 from 8pm, is the second singles match of the day from Group B as Del Potro faces Frenchman Gasquet.
