The Tennis elite gears up for Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

With the WTA Finals in full swing, the attention has shifted from the men’s competition to the women’s main_visual_hr_no_lif03e2ctournament but things are going to change.

Next week, the girls complete their activity in Singapore and the BNP Paribas tournament is set to begin.

This will provide players with one more chance to improve their position in the standings and secure a Barclays ATP World Tour Finals berth.

This is the most important event outside the Grand Slam tournaments of the year, so everyone hopes to be in London when the festivity starts. A couple of players have already booked the seat at this prestigious event and Novak Djokovic is at the top of the list. He has almost twice as many points than the runner-up, but Andy Murray will be the one who will enjoy the support of more fans.


Home pitch advantage means a great deal for tennis players, but Roger Federer has fans all over the world including in the capital United Kingdom. He secured his place at the table a long time ago and the same can be said about Stan Wawrinka, the winner of Roland Garros. The two Swiss players have a good chance at defeating the world number one as they’ve done it before this year.

Rafael Nadal had to fight for every point last week but his back-to-back victories ensured his presence at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. He currently sits in the fifth-place, just a couple of points ahead of Tomas Berdych who is also confirmed after winning the tournament.

Kei Nishikori is almost certain to play in the aforementioned tournament despite the fact that he had a hard time winning back-to-back games recently and suffered untimely eliminations.

David Ferrer was twice on the brink of elimination but somehow he found the resources to get back in the game and he is on the verge of finishing in the eighth place.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga would need to achieve something remarkable in Paris next week to leapfrog him, but Richard Gasquet has a better chance. The two Frenchmen will enjoy the support of an enthusiastic home crowd, but Richard is already involved in the ATP Basel tournament.

If he can earn enough points in Switzerland, if you won’t actually have to win the BNP Paribas tournament to overtake David Ferrer.
