No award, but Kei Nishikori in high spirits on London arrival

"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.

Djokovic looks the man most likely to deny Federer a 100th Tour title, having resumed the dominance he displayed in 2011, 2015 and 2016.

Dominic Thiem enters the 2018 ATP Finals in Group Lleyton Hewitt.

The 28-year-old said his confidence increased after the French Open and Wimbledon - he reached the semi-finals at the US Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic.

England close in on victory in Sri Lanka
Leach eventually made the breakthrough when Silva could not connect with a sweep shot and was dismissed leg before wicket for 30. The Englishmen are now having an outing in Sri Lanka for a complete series that includes five ODIs, one T20Is and three Tests.


Roger Federer would like the ATP World Tour Finals to remain in London beyond 2020 unless there is a compelling case to move the tournament.

"It's tough to have to face Federer in the opening match, but I hope to give it my all".

The schedule for Sunday 11 November and Monday 12 November of the ATP World Tour finals has been released. 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. In 2009, Nishikori didn't play any of the Grand Slam events due to a persistent elbow injury. "It turned out to be a flawless five months".

Federer, who has won the event a record six times, twice in London, said the British capital was the ideal fit. Group Guga Kuerten features top seed Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner. In fact, this is his third consecutive year qualifying for the event.

He sported a poppy, the symbol the British wear at this time of year to honour those who died in the world wars, and exalted in being a tourist in London, though his hotel room opposite the Houses of Parliament offers a view onto scaffolding and cladding round Big Ben, rather than the clock itself.

The ATP Finals, as it is now known, began in Tokyo in 1970 and spent six years on the road before a 13-year stint in NY and a six-year stay in Frankfurt before spells in Hanover, Lisbon, Sydney, Houston and Shanghai.

Djokovic and Vajda split in April 2017, then just one year after, before the clay-court season, they started working together again and had success. I expect the match between Zverev and Cilic to be the eventual quarterfinal. Recent form just about gives Thiem the edge and his return game could be key in breaking down his South African opponent's chief weapon.

Erdogan says he gave audio tapes of Khashoggi's death to Saudi officials
