Berdych, Tsonga, Fish complete O2 line-up

ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 Arena.

The stage is set for a thrilling end to what has been an extraordinary year in men's tennis, as Tomas Berdych, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Mardy Fish confirmed their places on the Eurostar from Paris to London for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

The international trio all needed to reach the quarter-finals of the Masters event in Bercy, Paris, to ensure their qualification for the season finale, and did so without fuss or bother, although Fish was forced to retire with an ongoing thigh injury within hours of ensuring his spot.

The three join Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and David Ferrer at the ATP's flagship event, which will kick off on the banks of the Thames for the third year in its five-year stint.

With Rihanna performing at The O2 next Tuesday, event staff have a whirlwind operation on their hands to turn the concert area into the iconic court the men's event, dubbed the 'Final Showdown,' has become so famous for.

And, with Djokovic and Federer returned from injury, Murray in the midst of a hot-streak (despite succumbing to Berdych in the Paris quarter-finals), and the other contenders more than capable of ruffling a few shirts, the event looks sure to provide fans with another week of high-calibre tennis.

The season finale also features the world's top eight doubles teams, led by the enigmatic Bryan brothers, the year-end world No.1s for the seventh time in their record-breaking careers.
