Places to go: ATP World Tour Finals

The first week of November, the last week of the tennis season. It’s here, at London’s o2 Arena, where the top eight get together and compete to be crowned king. I was there on Monday for day one, watching both the afternoon and evening sessions, leaving feeling extremely restless with a sore bottom but, despite it being fun and fairly action-packed there was one thing on my mind. I want to see Rafa. Yep, non of the ‘star’ players were competing on that day- that was being saved for bonfire night because obviously you don’t need fireworks when you’ve got Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic exploding excitement into our eyes- so as there were still some tickets available and I now live in London I came back the following afternoon.

But here’s the thing: There’s so much more to the Barclay’s ATP World Tour Finals than just the matches and, as the venue is only a 10 minute tube journey from my place, I found myself returning once again…without a ticket. You can read about it here but the best part is definitely how even without a ticket you can get up close to the players. You can see how they practice and maybe return with an autograph (sometimes finished off with a spot of post-practice sweat. Thanks Mike Bryan) So if you’re a fan and in London head to the O2 before the end of Monday…it’s all free!!
