In fact there are pretty much weekly tournaments right up to the end of season ATP World Tour Finals in London and the end of season could actually see a fair bit of drama. Andy Murray has enjoyed a great second half of the year and ever since winning Wimbledon, has been arguably the dominant force in the men's game. This has seen him close the gap on long-time rankings topper Novak Djokovic and there is the chance that before the year is out that he could've overtaken the Serb at the top.

- Most Aces Betting
- Number of Sets Betting
- Handicap Betting
- Game-by-Game betting
