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

It was a run that saw Nishikori beat then world No 3 Stan Wawrinka before coming through against Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals in four sets.

Novak Djokovic confirmed on Friday that his controversial exhibition match against Rafael Nadal in Saudi Arabia is off because the Spaniard is injured. When asked if that was due to Nadal's ailment he replied, "Yes".

It happens annually and signifies the season's end.

The Swiss broadly supports it staying in the United Kingdom capital, where huge crowds of over 250,000 are attracted, while Djokovic favours moving it around the world.

On facing Djokovic first up, he said: "I'm up against it for sure". 'I don't know what the options are. I think I did the same and at the end it came down to a few things.

"I'm very proud of that achievement and I understand that it's extra special this year because of the journey I've been through in the last 15 months, especially and particularly in the last eight to 10 months".

The Serb, who is making an appearance on Saturday's Jonathan Ross Show, believes it ought to be more nomadic.

"I feel you can very quickly play top-30 level", Federer replied when quizzed about Federer's return. "It's the biggest event the ATP owns, the eight best players in a unique round-robin system. We've always been proud of our ability to bring some of the world's best talent to New Zealand, and having players go on and qualify for the Finals just emphasises that" said Budge. It's not anything to do with London or the event. It's a great success here at the O2 Arena.

Fast forward to previous year and after cutting his season short in August after scans revealed a tear in one of his tendons, Nishikori was forced to ask himself the question that no top sports athlete in their prime ever was to contemplate - retirement. I enjoy it here.

Two recent defeats to Federer will be fresh in Nishikori's mind but he did compete well in their Shanghai and Paris matches so he certainly has what it takes to test the six-time champion.

"I don't want it to move from London", he said. And he was not at 100 per cent. "So that's what we are going to see and a great star will come through". So it's not enough to play last-16 or quarters. "Maybe until Monte Carlo I was playing terribly and didn't feel like I had any confidence and I wasn't playing good tennis at that time".

"Quite incredible, not just that I was ranked 22".
