ATP Final at O2

Grigor Dimitrov won his maiden ATP final last Sunday by defeating David Goffin in a three set exciting final. A number of Athlone tennis players were in the O2 to witness the top eight players compete in a round robin series of matches. Some witnessed the unexpected defeat of Roger Federer by David in the first semi-final and naturally this was their main topic of conversation afterwards.
