Its once again the time of the year where the creamiest of the cream tennis players defend against each other. It’s unfortunate to miss out two precocious jewels of tennis this season. The first one being the World Number two, Nadal and the other being the World Number four Del Potro. Also, both of them played against each other in three Grand Slams this year and one of them being the most interesting matches of 2018 at SW19. Their plaguing injuries compel them to withdraw from the Nitto Finals. However, the two men have excelled on the ATP circuit this year. The Japanese, Kei Nishikori and the American John Isner take up their vacant spots.
So yes, the Swiss legend, Roger Federer and the invincible man from Serbia, Novak Djokovic hold the crest at the tournament. Djokovic might dwell arduously on the tennis courts of London as his draw seems plausibly hard to get through. He is grouped with Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner. Also, the World Number one surrendered to the Australia Open finalist, Cilic at the Queen’s final. Djokovic has been handed arguably the most difficult group as he is paired with Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner. Additionally, their quarter-final in Paris last week encounter was enthralling.
Simultaneously, the 20-time Grand Slam champion, Federer must tussle against Kevin Anderson, Dominic Thiem and Kei Nishikori. The world is excited for the quarterfinal final repeat of the Wimbledon and this time Federer’s gears up to avenge his grass court major loss from Anderson. The South African seems to be the one who could hinder Federer to cross the threshold for the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals. Federer might open against Nishikori. The Swiss great has defeated him in all of their last six meetings. Federer will be ranked World Number two if he pulls off this ATP tournament. In addition to that, Federer must win every group match and seize the 100th title of his career for surpassing Nadal.
