Federer and Murray open ATP World Tour Finals in London

| 21.11.2010

London’s O2 arena is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the world’s top eight tennis players for the ATP World Tour finals which start on Sunday.

Having lost his world number four ranking, Andy Murray faces a fight with the man who took his ranking, Robin Soderling.

And the in-form Soderling will have no fears about taking on Murray in London having just won the Paris Open, and his meeting with Murray in March which was also in Paris.

But despite Soderling rising above Murray in the world rankings, the Swede is as big as 11/10 to beat Murray on Sunday.

Since winning the Shanghai Masters a month ago, Murray has lost all form on the hard courts as the season comes to an end, and the 4/6 available for Murray to win is best avoided.

The two have met four times over the years and on only one of those occassions has the tie gone the distance, suggesting the 12/5 for Soderling to win 2-0 is very good value.

Roger Federer vs David Ferrer

Ferrer has the unfortunate task of taking on the in-form Federer in his first game at the O2.

After losing to Murray in the Shanghai Masters, Federer told the world of his plan to finish the season strongly, and the Swiss star has subsequently won two of the three tournaments since then.

This should be an easy victory for Federer and his 1/8 odds suggest it will be, but at 9/4 to win the ATP World Tour Finals, Federer offers plenty of value in the ATP winners betting market.

Ferrer is yet to beat Federer in 10 attempts but a loss to the world number two wouldn’t be disastrous for the Spaniard in his hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.

A £10 stake on Federer and Rafael Nadal to meet in the final would return £60. See the full ATP World Tour Finals London betting odds here.
