For the eighth year, the ATP Tennis World Tour Finals season-ending showdown will be taking place from 13th to 20th November at The O2 in London, featuring the world’s best eight qualified singles players and doubles teams.

 All eight qualification spots in singles and doubles are at stake throughout the season as the world’s top players battle for a chance to compete for the last title of the year in London.  The draw of the World’s top players such as Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray constantly attract large crowds to the O2.

Each day has an afternoon and evening session which features one singles match and one doubles match.  Unlike Wimbledon, it is possible to get tickets online for the various matches especially in the early stages and the atmosphere courtside is more upbeat than Wimbledon with bright lights and music being part of the action.
