ATP World Tour Finals - Who's the favourite?


The world’s top eight players are gathering at the O2 Arena in London for the big finale of the Tennis year, the ATP World Tour Finals.

Roger Federer who has now slipped down to fourth in the world rankings – his lowest since 2003 – is aiming to finish off the year with a record sixth title at the event. His opening match will be against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Rafael Nadal will be playing his opening match against American, Mardy Fish. The Spaniard has been out of action for a month, and his last match was a shock defeat against Germany’s Florian Mayer in Shanghai in October.

He will be hoping to remind everyone what he’s made of.

Meanwhile the man who took claimed the top ranking, Novak Djokovic, will be seen as the man to beat, having won three of three of the years four grand slams. Although he has had some shoulder problems he claims that he’ll still play at 100 per cent.

But there are still those who favor Andy Murray on home soil. The Scot who has reached the last four in every grand slam will be aching for a victory here. He also has to watch out, as his third place ranking could still be snatched away by Roger Federer.
