Having completed the Fans Calendar Grand Slam this year by attending the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, I ended the 2018 tennis season by watching the ATP World Tour Finals, which took place in London. In the men’s doubles final, the American pair Jack Sock and Mike Bryan defeated French pair Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

In the men’s singles final, Alexander Zverev stunned 14 times Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic in straight sets to capture the biggest title of his career. With this victory, Zverev is the youngest winner of this competition. I first saw Zverev in 2014 when I went to Australia for the Australian Open where he captured the Boys Singles Australian Open title. At the time of watching the 16-year old win the junior title, I never imagined that in four-years time, he would dismantle one of the all-time -greats in a year-end championship. Without a doubt, Zverev is the future of men’s tennis and he if can consolidate on his performance on Sunday, tennis will be in safe hands in the next decade.

With the 2018 season ended, what could we expect in 2019? Will Djokovic continue his domineering performance? Will Federer pick up? Will Nadal reach a dozen Roland Garros titles? Will Osaka add to her maiden Slam title? Will Zverev break his Grand Slam duck? Finally and more importantly, will Queen Serena equal and eventually break Margaret Courts Grand Slam haul? Time will tell.

Attached are the images I took at the ATP World Tour Finals.

Happy viewing.
