It's that time of year again. This year it's the fifth time there's tennis on in this country. This time it's the season ending 'top dog' competition for the men with The top 8 doubles and top 8 singles players.
Of course, as with everything that's not Wimbledon you're hard pressed to know there's any doubles going on at all if you're watching on telly. And only the afternoon matches are on TV, the evening ones are on the radio. And worse - digital radio, so I can't even listen to the afternoon matches at work. Although I've been so busy at work today that I only really had time to read the live text commentaries for about three games.
It'll get more exciting on Saturday when I'm going. I definitely won't be seeing Murray, since that'll be a group B day, but there is a chance of seeing Marray. But even if I don't, it'll still be exciting to watch. And dark.
In previous years we've sat in the cheap seats, which give you a good view, but they're very high up and a long way back. This year we're in the corner (because I can't look from side to side), but six rows from the front. Which will be the closest we've ever sat in any tennis match. And will complete my round up of all the tennis in this country this year, as I went to Queens, Wimbledon, the Olympic tennis and the Paralympic tennis.
