2014 ATP World Tour Finals: format
If you bag a seat for the 2014 event, you’ll get a chance to sample one of the most raucous atmospheres in the tennis world – perhaps only New York’s Arthur Ashe Stadium can rival it in this respect. You’ll also get to experience a tennis tournament with a difference, as the Finals, played on indoor hard courts, differ from most other ATP events; namely, the format is not a straight knock-out competition, but rather a series of round robin matches. Thus, the winner can experience defeat - even more than once - en route to the final. Games, incidentally, are best-of-three-sets, both in singles and doubles.
