The Premier League is back this weekend after a short holiday as the international window took the limelight.

Coincidentally, however, the return of the England's top flight ties in with the business end of the tennis season. Only a handful of events remain before the year's conclusion at the ATP Tour Finals next month in London - no doubt the tennis giants will pop into a stadium while they're in town.

Furthermore, the women's campaign is due to end even sooner, as the likes of Maria Sharapova and co prepare for the WTA Finals in Singapore.

So why not celebrate the relationship between tennis and football?

I'm not talking about Ana Ivanovic and Bastian Schweinsteiger, but the stars of each sport are no strangers to watching their fellow athletes compete.

Just as a bit of fun, I have decided to see which tennis players match up with English football clubs. There's even a final league table at the end.

I hope you enjoy, and as always - feel free to comment below on whether you think the choices are right or wrong.
