London – World Tennis

As a prelude to hosting the 2012 Olympic Games, London has become a favored venue for many of the various sports’ World Championships in the years prior to the games. This year is no exception, so it’s worth watching what’s happening in London sports events while you visit.

I am giving you an early message about the chance to see sports history happen in London, when in late November, the first-ever World Champion of Tennis will be crowned during the ATP World Tour Finals 2009 being held at The O2 arena, London, SE10 0PE on the 22nd – 29th November, 2009.

The eight most successful players surviving the grueling 12 month standard tennis circuit will meet at the O2. While injuries may take their toll, it’s likely that the winner will be one of either Federer, Nadal, Djokovic or Andy Murray.

The publicity material suggests this event is to be presented more like a Vegas boxing match than the gentility of Wimbledon. Frankly, that’s a shame. But, I guess the O2 is a huge venue to fill and they want to attract young crowds, so expect it to be NOISY. Maybe bring ear plugs.

The tickets are relatively expensive, too, at £40 – £80 each. But, if you want to see the best-of-the-best be crowned World Champion of Tennis for this very first time, then make your plans accordingly!
