Andy Murray is a man who desperately wants to win the upcoming ATP World Tour Finals in London, which get underway this weekend at the O2 Arena. Obviously winning a tournament of any size, no matter what the quality level of the players assembled, is a nice feeling, but Murray believes that winning this one, in front of a home crowd, would provide a massive psychological boost as the season draws to a close and preparations quickly begin for the 2011 season.
Murray's bid to secure glory in front of British fans in London won't be an easy one. He's been drawn against Roger Federer, the in-form Robin Soderling and David Ferrer in Group B. Only the top two from four will progress to the semi-final stages, where Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Roddick or Tomas Berdych will be waiting and the ATP tennis betting
reflects just how tough things will be.
With Murray also hoping to end the season as world number three, after dropping a place in the latest world rankings, he'll have to battle it out for supremacy with two other players in the form of the Soderling and Djokovic who are also hoping to finish the year on a high behind Nadal and Federer and the online tennis betting
suggests they have every chance of doing so.
Although the Scot didn't have the best of times at last year's ATP World Tour Finals, failing to make it through his group, hopes are high this time around that he can make a real and lasting impact, as he seeks to finish off a year that has been relatively disappointing and inconsistent with a performance to keep his fans happy.
