Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic divided over future venue for ATP Finals

Monday, 12 Nov, 2018

Novak Djokovic, who returns to the O2 as world number one, won the title in London from 2012-15, and while the venue has served him well, he believes a move away from London in 2021 must now be considered by the men's Tour. The American, who won eight Grand Slams, was at his most productive in 1976, racking up an astonishing 12 titles.

"And that's why I tried really hard in Paris to get another win against him, to help me with confidence".

"What I like about my career is that no one knows what's going to happen", the Swiss ace said. Federer won his 99th ATP title in Basel, his home and bid for his 100th in Paris before he ran into Djokovic in the final, which extended his wait.

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

The Spaniard, Rafael Nadal won the best sportsmanship trophy but it was the supporters' accolade that went to Federer.

In the group named after Australian star Lleyton Hewitt, Switzerland's 20-time Grand Slam victor and second seed Roger Federer is the headline name.

"I think this is a great opportunity to promote tennis all around the world".

While Zverev does not support numerous new innovations at the Next Gen Finals - a tournament for the best players aged 21 and under and which he skipped to play at the ATP Finals in London, he says towel rails or boxes could be a benefit. The second of the 2018 tennis season has been incredibly kind to the Serbian.

Nishikori, a 2-time semifinalist in London, qualified for the event after Juan Martin del Potro withdrew. "It's a very cool way to make an entrance", World No.10, John Isner said.

The draw of the two groups maybe smiled at Federer.

He is set to play in the Nitto ATP Finals this week, where he is slotted in Group Lleyton Hewitt, which also features Kei Nishikori, Kevin Anderson, and Roger Federer. Djokovic, Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner are in the other pool, "Group Guga Kuerten". "Every tournament I will play for the rest of my life I will have a chance to reach my 100th, but reaching it here in London would be extra special, having achieved so much success here and because of the importance of the tournament".

Federer is aiming for a 100th career ATP title in London and going by the early judgements, his prime thorn will be Djokovic.

Nadal now has 80 singles titles to his name, including 11 French Open wins and, aged just 32, could conceivably move up the list in years to come.
