BBC to broadcast ATP Finals event

Nikolay Davydenko

ATP World Tour final highlights - Del Potro v Davydenko

The BBC has agreed a two-year deal to broadcast the ATP World Tour Finals at London's O2 Arena in November.

The tournament is the conclusion to the men's professional tennis season and features the world's best eight singles players and doubles teams.

Under the deal the BBC will screen a live match every day of the 21-28 November event, including the opening match, one semi-final and the final.

All the matches broadcast on the BBC will be available on the iPlayer.

In 2009 the tournament moved from Shanghai to London, where it will be held for a period of five years.

The BBC first showed last year's finals - with the showpiece setting an all-time indoor tennis attendance record as 256,000 fans packed into the east London venue over eight days.

Nikolay Davydenko triumphed in London last November, becoming the first Russian to win the ATP World Tour Finals with a superb display against Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro.

The 28-year-old Davydenko claimed the biggest title of his career, and a cheque for just over £900,000, with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of the US Open champion Del Potro, having beaten Rafael Nadal, Robin Soderling and Roger Federer en route to the final.
