London backed to host Masters Cup

London has been backed to host the ATP's season-ending Masters Cup by its chairman Etienne De Villiers.

Shanghai's deal to stage the event runs out in 2008, after which De Villiers said it is likely to return to Europe.

He said: "It's an open process, but I'd love it to go to London in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games.

"There's a phenomenal facility at the Dome, and a lot of support from the city authorities, from the LTA, broadcasters and sponsors."

He added: "The Masters Cup needs to be where most of the fans are.

"It needs to follow the natural course of the European indoor season. It would make a lot more sense to have it in Europe.



If this does become true, I'm definately interested in going even if it's as far as away as London. Would be great if such an event reaches our shores
