Alexander Zverev looks to the future as ATP Finals begin

Novak Djokovic says the ATP Finals should be 'travelling more'

I'm not going to recommend something that my numbers don't advocate, and I'll be back tomorrow to preview the two matches in the Kuerten group, as well as all week as the tournament continues.

In a see-saw tie-break, 25-year-old Thiem had two chances to level the match but Anderson kept his cool to seal the victory with an ace on his fourth match point.

"I'm satisfied, of course (with this week)", said Djokovic in the post-match press conference in Paris last Sunday.

That set a 31-2 run through six months, and he comes to London, where he has qualified 11 times, as the favourite to equal another of Federer's records, a sixth World Tour Finals trophy.

Roger Federer got the audience award and Rafael Nadal - award Stefan Edberg for "fair play".

Djokovic, on the other hand, has had a sensational return to form since the Wimbledon.

Dead Brothel Owner Wins Local Nevada Election Running as a Republican
The Love Ranch brothel that Hof owned became notorious as the place where former Laker Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015. When Hof died , it was already too late to remove his name from the ballot, and ballots had already been printed and mailed.

"Besides the guys who have won this tournament many times, things are pretty even".

Thiem reached a career high ranking of world No.4 in November of 2017, and is now ranked just inside of the Top 10 at No.8. Not just because of the rankings, being No22, but also because of how I felt on the court and how I played. I'm going to be the underdog.

The event is for the top eight players and with Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro also withdrawing it has left two spaces which Japan's Kei Nishikori and American John Isner have filled. No.6 South African Kevin Anderson, enjoying the best phase of his career at age 32, makes his debut in the tournament and remains its most unsafe floater, while the presence of No.10 John Isner, Nadal's replacement, will increase the chances of at least one marathon match next week. Nishikori was a fan of Shuzo, who would later go on to become Nishikori's mentor.

While Federer, Nishikori, Kevin Anderson, and Dominic Thiem are a part of the former, the remaining four, namely Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic, and John Isner, are a part of the latter.

"I'm really happy that I've been playing really good tennis for the last couple of months after the US Open and I hope I can have one more good week next week here", he said.

Djokovic has made an incredible comeback following elbow surgery early in the year, overcoming indifferent form to win Wimbledon and the US Open and haul himself back to the number one spot. If surprise successes in men's tennis are few and far between, London, hosting its 10th edition of the ATP Finals, may not provide one either, because Djokovic has moved on from a will-he-won't-he at the beginning of the year to becoming the man to beat at the end of it.
