World Tour Finals London Live
The last ATP Tournament of the season is finally here as the ATP World Tour Finals in London is set to be played this week.
Novak Djokovic is under pressure by Andy Murray, who was recently crowned the world no. 1 in the Paris Masters. Both the players have been placed in different groups, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see their rivalry play out here in the final once again. Apart from the above two names, Stan Wawrinka too is playing in the tournament, who will be keen on maintaining his grip at the word no. 3 position. However, it may be a bit trickier for the Swiss, since he lost his first round match in Paris Masters to Jan Lennard Struff. He has been placed in the same group as Murray, Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic. Meanwhile, the Serbian's group boasts of players such as Milos Raonic, Dominic Thiem and Gael Monfils. The young Austrian is one player who stands out from the pack, given that he is the youngest in the lot. He has been working hard this season, but he does appear to be a bit fatigued off lately.
Same can be said of Monfils too, who despite having a great year, has lost early in his last two events. It will be intriguing to see who comes out on the top here.

The ATP World Tour Finals is an annual indoor tennis tournament held in London, England. The competition that hosts the eight best players in the world (by ranking) celebrates its 46th edition this year.
The reigning champion is the Serbian Novak Djokovic who is a four-time champion of the event, winning the last three. The tournament has been held in London since 2009 and will stay there until 2018. The Swiss Roger Federer is the record champion with six titles to his name, but he clearly won't be the favorite this year, Djokovic will. The Serbian is playing tremendous tennis in the last couple of months, possibly rivaling even his otherwise legendary 2011 season. He has won three Grand Slam titles this season (and made the Roland Garros final as well) along with capturing a record breaking, six Masters 1000 titles to boost. He is above everyone else at the moment and it's hard to envision him losing here. Maybe in the group stages but even that would be a big surprise.
If not him, Federer could certainly end up winning the tournament, as he is an excellent indoor player and pretty much the only one who while lost to Djokovic this year more times than he beat him, at least managed to make a lot of their meetings competitive, beating the Serbian twice in 2015.
