It was in 2009 when the ATP World Tour Finals shifted from Shanghai to its current form at the O2 Arena in London. The eight elites of men’s tennis have given some thrilling matches over the past years. But with fan favorite, Roger Federer already out, thus preventing him a dream seventh title at the tournament and Rafael Nadal having already withdrawn earlier from this tournament, the stage is set for Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin, two of the most promising players to produce a finale worth remembering.
Here we bring to you some of most memorable ATP World Tour finales of the tournament:
ROGER FEDERER vs RAFA NADAL 2010
Winner: Federer 6-3 3-6 6-1
It was one of the most dominant and beautiful display of tennis by Roger Federer against his Spanish nemesis. While Federer took the early head start and wrapped up the first set easily, Rafa, bounced back to clinch the second with some spirited display and looked like having a lot in the tank, even after his marathon semifinal against Murray. But Roger, who had been middling the ball all week, finished off his opponent in the third, capping an unbeatable week.
The Swiss Maestro captured his 5th title at the year end championship, to finish the season on a high.
