Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Andy Murray started the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London for the best eight tennis players in the world with a win against Tomas Berdych.

Competing in his first singles match on home soil since he won the gold medal at the London Olympics, Murray beat the former Wimbledon finalist from the Czech Republic, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

The third-ranked Murray received a huge cheer from the crowd at London’s O2 arena as he walked onto court. The 25-year-old right-hander from Dunblane, Scotland, won the Olympic gold, and then went on to clinch his first major title at the U.S. Open in September. His victory in New York, after four defeats in Grand Slam finals, ended Britain’s 76-year long wait for a male British major singles champion.

The ATP Finals feature a round-robin format. The top eight players on the ATP World Tour rankings are divided into two groups of four, with the top two in each section moving into the knockout semifinals.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who will end the season as the world’s top-ranked player for the second straight year, was drawn in the same group as Murray and will play France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the evening session.
