Roger Federer vs Kei Nishikori Preview & Prediction

Nishikori will be making his fourth appearance at London's O2 Arena where he reached the semi-finals in 2014 and 2016

"I feel you can very quickly play top-30 level", Federer replied when quizzed about Federer's return.

The Japanese star's form has been very consistent in recent months, as after reaching the semi-finals at the US Open, he has gone on to appear in two finals, another semi-final, and two quarter-finals. Anderson came back from two sets to love down to beat the 20-time Grand Slam champion at Wimbledon in July on his way to the final.

"I would reckon the Novak Djokovic group is the tougher one", Becker said, as quoted on the Express. Being honest, I would not change with players who have a Grand Slam title and then they do not even have as half as many match wins as I do.

His defeat in Paris was against great rival and world number one Novak Djokovic in what was a stunning, closely-fought match so he will be feeling confident about his game as he kicks off his campaign in London. For all his achievements in the sport, the Spaniard has never managed to win the Tour Finals and will be denied the opportunity this time again, despite another stellar season under his belt.

"I hope it happens sooner rather than later, but I'm happy to wait as well".

Its longest stay in a single venue was across 13 consecutive editions at Madison Square Garden from 1977 to 1989 but it has been held at London's O2 arena since 2009 - drawing more than 250,000 fans annually.


Also featuring at the Tour Finals will be local favourite, Kiwi player Michael Venus, who has qualified for the ATP Tour Finals Doubles competition with his partner Raven Klassen.

Completing the field is Japan's Kei Nishikori, who has an impressive comeback story of his own.

Nishikori returned to action in January after a five-month absence due to a right wrist injury but fell to number 39 in the ATP rankings in April, his lowest position since 2011.

Nadal confirmed on Monday that he will miss the season-ending ATP Finals and that his season is over due to injury.

"Will he be able to play week in week out or will he have to play less tournaments like I do but still be successful?" He has a win-loss record for 42-19 in 2018 and finished the Race to London at No 9. The battle royale will begin in London on Sunday, with Anderson and Thiem playing the opener.
