The 2019 edition of the ATP Finals is less than two days away and the eight top tennis players in the world this year will be action in this round-robin-and-knockout tournament.
These eight players have been divided into two groups of four apiece and unless they withdraw in the middle of the tournament, each player features in three matches apiece during the group stage of the ATP Finals. This is followed by the semifinals, where the top two players from each group qualify and the final is played next Sunday, November 17 as the curtains draw on the season’s tennis.
The group stage, round-robin matches will be played between November 10 and 15, before the semifinals will be played on November 16 and that will be followed by the final next day.
The players in action during this year’s ATP Finals include:
Group Andre Agassi
1. Rafael Nadal
4. Daniil Medvedev
6. Stefanos Tsitsipas
7. Alexander Zverev
Group Bjorn Borg
2. Novak Djokovic
3. Roger Federer
5. Dominic Thiem
8. Matteo Berrettini
If you aren’t one of those lucky fans who has got their hands on the ATP Finals tickets for O2, then watching it live streamed or on TV is your obvious best bet. And if you are in the UK and want to watch the tournament for free, there are a couple of things you can do to do just that.
BBC has the rights to telecast the ATP Finals live on TV with BBC2, and it will also be streamed live on the BBC website. The only catch here is only one of the matches will be broadcast live with BBC – the afternoon session singles match. What that implies is if you are a hardcore tennis looking to watch as many matches as possible, it might get difficult for you with BBC.
Still, in a tournament consisting of a glittering lineup, it would really be awesome to watch even one match a day and for free.
The following matches will be live with BBC this World Tour Finals:
- November 10, 13:50, BBC Two (Novak Djokovic v Matteo Berrettini)
- November 11, 14:00, BBC Two (Daniil Medvedev v Stefanos Tsitsipas)
- November 12, 14:00, BBC Two TBA
- November 13, 14:00, BBC Two TBA
- November 14, 14:00, BBC Two TBA
- November 15, 14:00, BBC Two TBA
- November 16, 14:00, BBC Two, First Semifinal
- November 16, 18:00, BBC Two, Final
