Djokovic, Federer drawn together in ATP Finals

The Spaniard was drawn in the Andre Agassi group on Tuesday, and has avoided long-term career rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

Medvedev, the Russian world No. 4 who has been in astonishing form since Wimbledon, will arguably be viewed as the favourite to come out of their group given Nadal's injury woes, while Federer and Djokovic will be fancied to progress ahead of Dominic Thiem and debutant Matteo Berrettini.

The ATP finals take place between November 10-17 and it is played in a round robin format, with the top two players from each group advancing to the semi-finals.

With the draw being released in London earlier today, this year the groups have been named after Andre Agassi, who won the 1990 season finale when the tournament was held in Frankfurt, and Bjorn Borg who won the 1979 and 1980 titles at Madison Square Garden in New York City. "Yesterday I had [an exam] in Mallorca and despite having a small strain in the right abdominal rectum, I will travel to London". "Thursday or Friday I will start hitting services. The idea is to be able to play the [ATP Finals] in London". "Thank you for all the love and support!", noted Djokovic in his post. The Swiss will nevertheless rue his missed opportunity at Wimbledon, serving for the championship against Novak Djokovic with two match points. The Serbian leads his group as the highest-ranked player.

According to The Verge , the truck will seat six, offer between 400 to 500 miles of range and start at around $50,000. A Wednesday tweet from Elon Musk revealed that Tesla plans to unveil its electric truck later this month.

The 33-year-old had to end last season prematurely due to injury, but in 2019 he has recorded a 51-6 match record and won two Grand Slams. He will play Djokovic for the 49th time to continue their epic rivalry.

With the season-ending money-spinner taking place in London at the O2 Arena between Sunday 10th November and Sunday 17th November, the eight qualifying players have been grouped into two sets of four for the initial group phase, and the seeding set up some intriguing battles.

The competition sets the path for the sprint to the top of the ATP rankings. It could have gone both ways, either way Ias going to play world No. 1 or a recap of the final in my first match.

Defending champion Zverev has had a hard year winning only one title at the ATP 250 in Geneva, as it has been a year of disappointing early losses and off-court issues for the German.
