ATP World Tour Finals on TV

Brendan O'Neill in Tennis 30 Sep 2015

The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals has established itself as the biggest indoor tennis tournament in the world since moving to the O2 Arena in London in 2009 and certainly deserves to be in the category of the world's top sporting events. 

Interest in the tournament has gone through the roof in recent years and global broadcasters have responded in kind with coverage to match the expectation of fans. Andy Murray of Scotland in action6x5x4x3x

Sky has played a major role in the increased commercialisation of sport around the world since 1991 and with five dedicated sports channels and a 24 hours Sky Sports News service subscribers are never left out of the loop.

You can watch Sky Go on your computer, on your tablet or smartphone through the Sky Go app with each option designed to give subscribers a different way to watch live tennis.

There are currently 62 tournaments on the ATP tour in 31 countries and they're split into three categories in order of importance with the top ranked Master 1000 events followed by the ATP 500 and ATP 250 tournaments.

The ATP World Tour Finals wrap up a long and arduous season with the Emirates ATP Race To London concluding at the Paris Masters at the start of November and the top eight singles players and double pairs in the ATP Rankings booking their tickets to the English capital for the competition, which takes place in the same month.

Unlike all other singles events on the men's tour, the ATP World Tour Finals is not a straightforward knock-out tournament. Players are divided into two groups of four and play three round-robin matches each against the other players in their group in the hope of booking a place in the top two and securing a place in the semi-finals.
