Roddick 'in' just in time
Andy Roddick made it just in time. He managed to rack up enough wins to be the eighth man to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals in London next week. Roddick will join world No1 Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Robin Soderling and Tomas Berdych for the season-ending championship at the London O2 Arena. India's Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi have also respectively qualified for the doubles segment while Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi failed to make the cut.
This has been one of the most closely-fought seasons in Formula One history. While Fernando Alonso's chances are the brightest, he holds a lead of eight precious points over his nearest rival, Red Bull's Mark Webber. Sebastian Vettel with his victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix has managed to keep his name in the hat too. While Ferrari have no qualms about sacrificing one driver for the benefit of another and the team, Red Bull will not follow suit.

Don't miss out all the action!
After the midweek action, which saw Chelsea hold on to a four-point lead, football picks up again during the weekend. Manchester United could manage just a draw against Manchester City and have Aston Villa to contend with on Saturday while Arsenal have Everton on their plate. With just a point separating United and Arsenal, a win or loss could go a long a way.
