The 8 contenders — ATP Finals

Diego Schwartzman speaks about relationship with Rafael Nadal

Nadal, who has never won the ATP Finals despite his trophy-laden career, dethroned Djokovic from the top of the rankings this week.

Speaking at the O2 Arena, he said: "I need to go day by day".

Zverev and Federer are due to tour South America after the ATP Finals as the pair play a number of exhibition matches.

As a effect, if I manage to get the year-end number one, that would be fantastic. "I need to see how things evolve every single day", he said.

Nadal, 33, withdrew from that tournament with an abdominal injury, but signaled on social media this week that he would do all he can to be fit for London.

"Everything Roger does, he does 100 per cent, so I think he's 100 per cent behind Sascha otherwise he wouldn't sign him".

Federer has been leaking his 2020 gradually over the past few months and has already committed to play all the Grand Slams plus some other major events such as the Olympics, but now he's confirmed that he's decided not to play any tournaments in the run up to the 2020 Australian Open.

"I'm confident that I can be very competitive but of course it's a tournament that you will face the top guys from the beginning so you need to be 100 percent ready", he said.

Germany's Alexander Zverev, who triumphed closing three hundred and sixty five days, is joined by Russia's Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece and Italy's Matteo Berrettini.


The Spaniard said this week that he had had a scan in Mallorca after straining an abdominal muscle and would work on adapting his serve but he remained bullish about featuring at the ATP Finals after missing out a year ago with an injury.

"What I like about the young guys qualifying for the first time, it goes away from just saying we've got some talented players on the Tour", he said. "In order for me to be in the position to be year-end number one I understand I have to be healthy and schedule well".

Djokovic also beats Nadal on head-to-head, 3-2 in this instance, and has won both of their meetings since 2010.

"These guys are great guys off the court", he said.

"I have done it in the past, and I like playing there".

The season-ending event, featuring the year's best eight players, is contested in a round-robin format with the best four players and doubles teams reaching the knockout semi-finals stage.

We broke down their head-to-head numbers and analysed whether they have dominated the ATP Finals like they dominate Grand Slam tournaments.
