Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic May Win $2.7 Million — ATP Finals

Also featuring at the Tour Finals will be local favourite, Kiwi player Michael Venus, who has qualified for the ATP Tour Finals Doubles competition with his partner Raven Klassen.

Novak Djokovic says an exhibition match against Rafael Nadal in Saudi Arabia has been called off because the Spaniard underwent ankle surgery.

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.

"Having players start their year in Auckland and go on to have such successful seasons is a badge of honour for us".

John Isner, like Anderson, will also be making his debut at the tournament.

It happens annually and signifies the season's end. Thiem has recorded two wins in two editions so far.


The pace at which Federer plays and the rhythm he gets into on fast courts have never been to Djokovic's liking. "Djokovic, Zverev, Cilic, Isner is a pretty rough one". De Minaur was selected for Newcomer of the Year after reaching a career high ranking of No. 31, which places the 19-year-old as the second-youngest ATP player inside the Top 100.

Swede Mats Wilander, seven-time Major champion and one of the most serious watchers of modern-day tennis, had an interesting explanation for the lack of breakthrough champions.

What was to follow this year has seen Nishikori dig deep through perseverance, not giving up his childhood dream of becoming a professional tennis player and pure determination to reach the top of the game again.

"That level he found quickly and very easily, he wasn't 100% so that makes me feel good about his chances".

"It is a great success here and I personally have had phenomenal success so I should be the last one talking about moving it anywhere because I enjoy it". There were Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Marat Safin.

"It seemed to me that Sampras and Agassi had to be out of the picture before Federer gained the confidence to win". "It just shows you how good Connors was for so long and how much of a great competitor he was", said Darren Cahill, the ESPN analyst who coached the former men's No. 1 Andre Agassi and now coaches the women's No. 1, Simona Halep.
