Federer, Djokovic top the bill for London finale

Federer, Djokovic top the bill for London finale

While Zverev does not support numerous new innovations at the Next Gen Finals - a tournament for the best players aged 21 and under and which he skipped to play at the ATP Finals in London, he says towel rails or boxes could be a benefit. "I just feel like this is a great leverage, an opportunity to promote tennis all around the world", he added, suggesting it could move around every few years.

Isner said of facing Djokovic on nittoatpfinals.com: "I'm going up against the number one player in the world". Early in his career, Federer already was sounding blasé about tennis math.

When asked whether Federer's number of 20 Slams was important to him, he simply replied: 'Yes'.

But that does not mean Connors's 109 is not a worthy target. Ten more titles is a big task at age 37 with a limited tournament schedule, and there are plenty of other obstacles beyond his direct control.

Federer will have been buoyed by his battling performance against Djokovic in the semi-final of the Paris Masters last week but he still lost the match - his fourth consecutive defeat against Djokovic, with the Serb now leading their head-to-head 25-22.

Alexander Zverev is at the sharp end of that group, a precocious talent who hit 6ft 6in while still a teenager, has been mentored by Federer, and has won three Masters titles from five finals.

But it was clear that Federer was a player to watch and he began to rack up the tour titles.

But when Anderson fashioned a fourth match point with a forehand victor on Thiem's serve, the world number six smashed his 13th ace of the match to secure victory.

"I'm satisfied, of course (with this week)", said Djokovic in the post-match press conference in Paris last Sunday. "I'd be insane not to".

The 32-year-old, making his debut at the season finale, won 84 percent of his points on serve in the first set, compared with just 58 percent for his ragged Austrian opponent.

Three women have done it: Steffi Graf with 107, Chris Evert with 157 and Martina Navratilova with 167.

"It's not because of London and not because of anything to do with this event which is a great success here at the O2 Arena".

He has returned sensationally in 2018, winning both the Wimbledon and US Open Grand Slam titles.

Federer won seven titles in his dreamy 2017 comeback season. The US Open is the most lucrative, paying its champions $3.8 million this year while the Australian Open also has a winners' pot of $2.9 million.

"I love playing this event, always have since the first in 2002, that was a massive highlight in my career and I had a good run..."
