As the tennis season is quickly approaching its end, the excitement is at its peak for the ATP World Tour Finals later this month, as the Groups for the tournament have officially been announced. Only the 8 world’s best tennis players will travel to London to play in the season ending tournament on hard court; yet the world number three Rafael Nadal will be absent. The Spaniard will unfortunately not be playing for the rest of the 2014 season after developing Appendicitis; he is currently recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery on Monday.
The world number one Novak Djokovic is clearly the favourite going into the ATP World Tour Finals as he has dominated play recently and has won a Grand Slam this year. Other Grand slam winners that have qualified for the Finals are Stanislas Wawrinka, who won the Australian Open and Marin Cilic, who claimed his first Grand Slam title at the US Open. Nadal reigned victorious at the French Open, but obviously cannot play in London. Andy Murray managed to fight his way into qualification, but he did struggle as he fell out of form earlier in the year.
Britain’s number one Andy Murray has hit form only recently as he had to win 3 titles in the past 6 weeks in order to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. The Scot has been drawn in Group B alongside Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and the world number two Roger Federer. Therefore, that means Group A consists of the world number one Novak Djokovic, Stanislas Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic. Andy Murray will open the play for the ATP World Tour Finals, which is being hosted at the O2 Arena, on Sunday against Nishikori.
