ATP finals, London: Roger Federer to play Kei Nishikori

"Roger Federer has a big serve".

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

Roger Federer, who is seeking his 100th career title, headlines the other group.

"I'm really happy. It's not easy to come here". Early in his career, Federer already was sounding blasé about tennis math.

But that does not mean Connors's 109 is not a worthy target. "I think the options clearly are also important to look at". He will be opening his campaign against Alexander Zverev, who for the second year in the row as opted to play the ATP season finale while also being eligible to play at the Next Gen Finals. He went on to reach the semifinals at the U.S. Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic.

The title is contested by the eight players who have accumulated the most ranking points over the season and is in a round-robin format, with the best four players reaching the knockout semi-finals stage.

Evert's and Navratilova's gargantuan totals are a reflection of just how long they dominated and how many tournaments they played each year.

Federer won seven titles in his dreamy 2017 comeback season.

"I won a bunch of tournaments again, played great at the Australian Open".

The ATP, the governing body of men's professional tennis, announced in August the opening of an global tender process to determine the future location of the season finale featuring the world's best eight qualified singles players and doubles teams.

It has taken Federer longer to hit cruising speed in the second half of 2018, perhaps in part because of a hand injury.
