Published

On Sunday, Grigor Dimitrov became the first Bulgarian to win the ATP Finals after a hard fought contest against David Goffin. However did withdrawals affect the success of the season ending finale in London?

Despite Grigor Dimitrov claiming a 7-5 4-6 6-3 over David Goffin on Sunday, was the absence of some of tennis’s top star names impacting the quality and success of the tournament? Big names such as Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori were missing from the fifth biggest event of the season, so did the quality of tennis decrease or get better as a result.

UBITennis founder Ubaldo Scanagatta reflects on the tournament and gives his thoughts on whether the lack of star power had an affect on the quality of tennis shown.
