• Group A takes the court on Day 1 of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, with the World No. 1 and World No. 3 leading the way at The O2. The two doubles matches feature the No. 1 and 2 teams on the ATP World Tour.

• In the opening session , No. 3 Andy Murray takes on No. 5 seed Tomas Berdych, who holds a 4-3 advantage in their head-to-head meetings (tied 1-1 indoors). Murray has compiled a 12-2 record on home soil this year, falling in his opening match at the Queen’s Club (l. to Mahut), then reaching the Wimbledon final (l. to Federer) and following with a gold medal performance at the London Olympics (d. Djokovic, Federer back-to-back). Berdych has been particularly successful against Murray and the Scot is the only member of the ‘Big Four’ Berdych has a winning record against (he is 4-3 against Murray but 1-10 against Djokovic, 5-11 against Federer and 3-12 against Nadal). Murray has gone 7-3 since his US Open title with all three losses coming after holding at least one match point. Last week he lost in the third round of Paris to Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz. Berdych has gone 13-3 since the US Open (and 6-1 indoors - he played two indoor events, winning Stockholm and reaching the quarter-finals in Paris, falling to Gilles Simon).

• In the night session, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic enters with an 8-5 head-to-head record against No. 7 seed and last year’s finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Serb has won their last six meetings (including all four this year) but Tsonga has won all four of their indoor meetings (three in 2008, one in ’09). Tsonga has two career wins over World No. 1s, one over Federer (Montreal in 2009) and one over Nadal (Queen’s Club in 2010) and he is 2-5 lifetime against World No. 1s. Tsonga has struggled  against Top 10 opponents this year (1-12) with his lone win coming over then-No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro in Rome. Djokovic has gone 10-1 since his US Open runner-up. Last week he lost in his first indoor match of the year to American Sam Querrey in the opening round of Paris. Djokovic has wrapped up the No. 1 ranking for the second year in a row. Tsonga has gone 14-5 since the US Open (9-3 indoors, highlighted by his ninth career title in Metz, a runner-up in Stockholm (l. to Berdych) and quarter-finals last week in Paris (l. to eventual champion Ferrer).

• The doubles event kicks off as well, with three of the Top 4 seeds in action, beginning with reigning champions and No. 2 seeds Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Daniel Nestor of Canada against No. 4 seeds Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania. Lindstedt and Tecau were finalists at Wimbledon for the third year in a row (l. to Marray-Nielsen).

• In the evening session, World No. 1 Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan look for their fourth win of the season (3-0) against the Spanish duo of No. 6 seeds Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, who are making their debut at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. The Bryans have finished No. 1 in eight of the past 10 years and they are 7-3 in finals this season. In July, they earned a gold medal at the London Olympics (d. Llodra-Tsonga).
