WORLD TOUR FINALS: London tidbits...

The ATP World Tour Finals kick off tomorrow with some of the most talented players we've ever seen facing off at the O2 Arena.

Here are some updates from the English capital ahead of the tennis extravaganza we're about to be treated to.

The players and the ATP organised a charity gala on Thursday evening and they managed to raise more than £400,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Here's a video from the gala and you can find some cool photos of Rafa, Xisca, Federer and Murray here...

Djokovic and his girlfriend Jelena took some time to go see the Twilight: Breaking Dawn London premiere and British teen Laura Robson happened to be there too looking like an absolute rock star. Robson really knows how to glam up.

Tennis couple Jurgen Melzer and Iveta Benesova tweeted that they were also going to see Breaking Dawn, but a day later. Melzer is at the WTFs with his doubles partner Philipp Petzschner, and the pair are ranked fourth in the world.

Here's a photo of 'Melzsova' at the gala...
Djokovic practiced with Rafa for 2 and a half hours on Thursday and tweeted this photo of the "best teams" in tennis.

Tomas Berdych arrived at the gala with his new girlfriend Ester Satorova. First impression: Wow! Second thought: Poor Lucie Safarova (Berdych's ex)!

And I'll leave you with this... The magnificent 8 ...
