Get your ATP Finals tickets here-> tennis tickets, so you can see the biggest names in world tennis battle it out at the O2 Arena in London. The 2014 tournament is the 45th year of the event and the sixth year at London, which runs from the November 9-16.

Paddy Power are offering odds of 2/5 on any other combination of players making the singles final, whereas a Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer the singles final is at 7/4. Stanislas Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori, Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic and Marin Cilic would all like their chances of making the final given the only need to usurp one of the mega stars of the game instead of two i.e. Rafael Nadal not standing in their way due to injury.

The ATP Tour Finals trophy was renamed last year as, “The Brad Drewett Trophy” in memory of the ATP Executive Chairman and President who passed away on May 3, 2013.

Sharapova US Open 2014Venus Williams silenced her critics last week as she beat Timea Bacsinsky in the US Open second round. The older Williams sister took a 6-1, 6-4 victory over her Swiss rival, and celebrated as she enjoyed one of her best seasons for a while.

After making it through to the final in Montreal earlier this month following her sensational victory over sister Serena, she has now set in motion a winning streak which could see her gunning for the title.

“I’m happy I won a match again,” she said. “The last couple of years I fought really hard and I really played red-hot opponents. So it wasn’t like I didn’t try. Sometimes you don’t win them. That’s why you get up and you live to fight another day. So that’s really what it’s about for me.” Williams’ next opponent is Italian No.2 Sara Errani, with whom she holds an undefeated record.

But she’s not the only female who’s proven herself at this year’s event: once again, Maria Sharapova has advanced to the next stages of a major tournament. The 27-year-old had an early scare as it looked as though she might bow out early to Romanian rival Alexandra Dulgheru. After losing the first set, Sharapova managed to bounce back and reached the third round with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

It’s a particularly sweet victory for Sharapova who, this time last year, was recovering from surgery on her right shoulder. Now, having won the French Open earlier this year, folks at bookies.com are already predicting that she’s on course to winning the US Open for the first time in eight years.

Over on the men’s side, Swiss tennis fans were chanting Stan Wawrinka’s name as he managed to progress to the next stage after defeating Brazilian rival Tomasz Bellucci.

After a weak point mid-match, the 29-year-old came back for a 6-3 6-4 3-6 7-6 (7-1) victory, and things even got a little heated towards the end of the match, as Wawrinka was seen telling spectators to “shut up.”

It seems the match was a little too exciting for some fans, who Wawrinka decided was making too much noise.

He said after the match: “At the end of the day, they start to get a little bit drunk. I had to talk to a few of them. Everybody was into the match. That’s okay. It can happen.”

With tennis as exciting as this year’s event, it’s no wonder the crowds were getting a little rowdy.
