Watch the men's professional tennis season wind to a close in London
Tennis fans out there who've been following the men's season since the beginning will surely want to book up a London hostel and enjoy the ATP World Tour Finals in November, but even those who don't know much about the event should check out what all the excitement is about.

Tickets are now on sale for the occasion – which takes place between November 21st and 28th - and even if you're not that keen on tennis you could still go to check out its amazing venue – the O2 arena.

It's situated on the Greenwich peninsula and anyone who visited the Millennium Dome back in the day will know exactly what it looks like - because it's the same building!

There are loads of gigs and shows that go on at the complex so if you go just to please your boyfriend or girlfriend and aren't sure of the difference between Rafael Nadal and Andy Roddick – come on the US! – then you could convince them to see a gig at the superb venue soon after.

I hear that Suede are playing a bit later at the O2 and Andrea Bocelli is on just under ten days before the tennis feast begins. Use those powers of persuasion!

I will of course be cheering on Roddick, if he makes it to the tournament but he's not guaranteed. The way it works is that the top eight singles and doubles teams from the whole season compete against each other to be crowned the overall winners for the campaign in each section, so there should be some quality on show.
