Federer sees no reason to move ATP Finals from London

  • ATP Finals Preview- Novak Djokovic

And once Federer was out of contention in the same tournament and Nadal had formally withdrawn from the World Tour Finals, Djokovic was assured of the year-end No1 for a fifth time.

As he slammed back returns from every corner of the court, stretching like a band and focused like a monk, the Swiss had just one wow moment. "Either it happens or it doesn't", he told Germany's Tennis Magazin this year, referring to the 109.

As Federer sought the old magic-which comes in bits and pieces these days because the body cannot achieve what the mind believes it can at age 37-Djokovic played the game he knows best, one of negligible errors.

The Swiss tennis legend has won everything there is to win on the tour, including all four Grand Slams.

I don't want it to move from London, I just feel like the concept of this event should be the one that travels, he said.

In chronological order, first came Rafael Nadal's inability to recover fully from injury and subsequent withdrawal from the Rolex Paris Masters last week (and later the ATP Finals as well).

"It turned to out to be a ideal five months of the year, with two Grand Slam titles", he added.

Roger Federer is aiming to complete a century of titles at the ATP Finals but will likely have to find a way past the irrepressible Novak Djokovic, who is looking to round off his astonishing season in style.


Thiem reached a career high ranking of world No.4 in November of 2017, and is now ranked just inside of the Top 10 at No.8.

That said, he would likely need to play on at the top level for another few years to edge ahead of Connors in the standings.

Unsurprisingly, Federer is a heavy favourite, with the Exchange now pricing the Swiss legend at [1.29], although I think this is a little short. "I'm ready to go again now", he said. The second of the 2018 tennis season has been incredibly kind to the Serbian.

Apart from Nadal, Juan Martin Del Potro withdrew from the tournament as well due to an injury. "It's a very cool way to make an entrance", World No.10, John Isner said.

"I've watched it since I was a kid so to play here in this unbelievable atmosphere and get a win, I couldn't be more happy". Fans can continue relishing the rivalry among the three men who could each lay claim for being the greatest of all time. Djokovic, Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner are in the other pool, "Group Guga Kuerten".

Nishikori has been drawn into "Group Lleyton Hewitt" alongside Federer, Kevin Anderson and Dominic Thiem.

Djokovic has made an incredible comeback following elbow surgery early in the year, overcoming indifferent form to win Wimbledon and the US Open and haul himself back to the number one spot. In may, Djokovic thought the end of his career, but in the second half of the year, he's not going to stop.
