ATP World Tour Finals Pictures

Here are some pictures I took when I went to the O2 arena for the first day of the ATP World Tour Finals.

Practice courts/fan zone

This is a picture taken on the way to the courts. The large building on the left is the main practice courts. The entire area pictured is the fan zone. The buildings on the far side of the picture is where fans can play a variety of games. One of these games is serving as fast as you can and the winner gets tickets on a plane. The buildings on the bottom left are fan areas, which include the art balling area, which will be mentioned later.

This is the other, smaller, practice court.

 ATP World Tour Finals trophy

Here is the trophy to be won by the winner - it was on display, available to take a picture with it in the fanzone.

ATP World Tour Finals players

On the way to the O2 arena from the tube station there were columns with players on them - there was only 4 of Murray, Nadal, Federer and Djokovic. Here they are.


Over the entrance of the O2 arena there was a photo with all the players who qualified.

Art Balling

Art balling is basically hitting a ball with paint on to paper to make a shape. It is how the top 8 players made their paintings going on auction. Here is a normal example of art balling and was made at the place where fans could make their own art balling picture.

Here are the eight pictures of the top 8 players, with their racquets, photographed at the O2 arena by me.

Roger Federer

Novak Djokovic

Robin Soderling

And finally here are two pictures of the players warming up.

Another video should be made by tomorrow.
