Some of the best Tennis players in the world will set the court alight at the O2 Arena, London when the ATP World Tour Finals begin on Sunday.
The group draws have given out some tantalizing fixtures to look forward.
Group A includes Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Tomas Berdych and Andy Roddick and Group B throws in Roger Federer, Robin Soderling, Andy Murray and David Ferrer.
The tournament starts off with Sweden's Robin Soderling taking on local hero Andy Murray, before David Ferrer battles against World number 2 Roger Federer.
On Monday's afternoon match, Novak Djokovic will take on Tomas Berdych, before World number 1 Rafael Nadal faces Andy Roddick.
Rafael Nadal, who was forced to pull out of the Paris Masters to recover from a tendinitis in his left shoulder, is keen to impress and cap off an outstanding season in which he won three Grand Slams.
The Spaniard said, I going to be with special motivation, with special allusion, and I'm going do all in my hands to play well there (London). It is a goal for me to try to improve the image of last year in London. I think I am focused to try to do this.
We will see what happens; I am focused on trying to play well. It is probably the most difficult surface against the most difficult opponents for me, so probably it is the more difficult tournament for me to win during the year. But I am here to try.
Local favorite Andy Murray will be especially motivated to perform in front of his home crowd. The Englishman has been inconsistent over the last couple of weeks. However, with the crowd spurring him on, he will look to impress.
In his website, Murray said, It's an incredible atmosphere, a huge arena and it's one of the biggest competitions in tennis behind the grand slams, so I'm really looking forward to it. The last couple of weeks weren't as good as I'd have liked, although I actually won my first doubles competition with my brother (Jamie), which was cool. But playing in front of a home crowd is always great. It would be a big one psychologically to win, so I'll give it my best shot.
However, Murray faces a tough task as he will have to face Roger Federer who will be keen to get back on track after a surprising loss to Gael Monfils in Paris. The Swiss master will surely try to end 2010 on a high after winning just one major trophy - The Australian Open - at the beginning of the year.
Federer, who went to Paris after recovering from an injury, said, I feel good physically. In a way it is a relief that I was able to finish the tournament (in Paris) in good physical health. I'm fresh mentally, too. This is the most important thing. Victories are important, but when you're not fit and when you're injured, it's bad. I think I'm going to recover quite fast after that loss.
