ATP World Tour Champion: Nikolay Davydenko

O2 Arena ATP Finals

Last week, the ATP end of the year Championships took place in London.  Many people from all over the world travelled to England to watch the tournament.  Fans were skeptical as to wether the tournament would be a success at the O2 Arena.  Not only did it turn out well, many people said that it was beyond their expectations.  Some people even took it so far as to say that it was like another grand slam.  The top 8 in the world are invited every year to play in the World Tour Finals.  This years competitors included: Federer, Nadal, Murray, Djokovic, Verdasco, del Potro, Soderling, and Davydenko.  Andy Roddick qualified to play but pulled out due to injury.  Surprisingly, none of the “big 4” qualified for the finals.  Only one of them (Federer) even made it through the round robin stages to the semi-finals.  The finalists were Juan Martin del Potro and Nikolay Davydenko.  Davydenko played a great match in the finals to take the title.  He made very little unforced errors securing a 6.3 6.4 win in the final.  This is Davydenko’s biggest achievement so far in his career, and a great end to the 2009 year.
