November 9, 2019 4:25 am

The second seed at ATP World Tour Finals 2019, Novak Djokovic has won three of the five matches against Roger Federer on London’s O2 Arena. The duo will once again lock horns on the English hardcourt and excite the tennis fans worldwide.

Besides that, Federer is delighted to play against Djokovic once again this year and he is thrilled to be in the same group as the Serb. “Honestly I’m very excited to play against Novak again here. I’m happy to be in his group,” said Roger Federer. Previously, the duo gave an exhilarating performance at SW19 and probably recorded one of the best matches of the decade. 

Federer was asked will the indoor conditions in London give him the head-start against Djokovic. “I hope so, I don’t know,” Roger Federer responded. “He’s been playing indoors okay, too. So it’s not like his record is nonexistent or is like so much worse than mine. I don’t even know if it’s worse than mine or mine is better.”

The Swiss maestro, Roger Federer has won 26 indoor ATP titles and Novak Djokovic has 13 of them. Federer’s winning percentage of indoor matches has been 81.3 on the ATP Tour and the Serb has won 78.7 percent of his indoor matches in his career.

Clearly, both the tennis Goliaths have impressive statistics on the indoor terrain and now they have got on-board to attain another crown in the O2 Arena. 

The Swiss is eying for his seventh crown at the ATP World Tour Finals 2019 and he hopes to triumph here. “Of course it would be nice. I’m not the only guy who has that hope and that dream. So we’ll see how it goes,” Federer said. “But I think indoors, it’s more of a nostalgic thing for me as well. That’s where I had my first success on the Tour.”
