Federer eyes ATP Finals crown to reach career 100

Former champion Andy Murray, still making his way back from injury, and defending champion Grigor Dimitrov are other star names missing.

Going into the season-ending ATP Finals, where the two have won 11 of the last 15 editions, Federer's six to Djokovic's five, it is their potential clash which will assume primacy.

Federer will lead the charge in Group Lleyton Hewitt, which also consists of Dominic Thiem, Kevin Anderson and Kei Nishikori.

Nishikori opens his tournament against world number three Roger Federer and admitted it would be tough after two recent losses against the Swiss.

"I don't think it matters really where I win my 100th as long as it's going to happen at one point", said the 37-year-old, who has not won the ATP Finals since 2011. I was playing with them in the weekend, which cost me much more.' Asked if people would remember him for not being able to win a Grand Slam, Ferrer replied: 'Well, sometimes, but it does not matter.

"But there was always part of me that believed I could make it back and I never thought it was impossible". He reached the semifinals twice, in 2014 and 2016, and was beaten by Novak Djokovic both times.

Isner followed this up by capturing his fifth Atlanta Open title in six years and made it through to the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

Djokovic, who underwent elbow surgery in February and ended the year as world No. 1, received the Comeback Player of the Year award on Friday.

"Maybe Wimbledon and the US Open didn't go the way I was hoping but those were really the only two disappointments of the season", he said. "That was a massive highlight in my career to be among the best eight and I actually had a great run too, that very first time in Shanghai".

The Spaniard said he needed an operation on his right ankle and is also yet to recover from the abdominal problem that kept him out of the Paris Masters, meaning Djokovic is guaranteed to end the year top of the world rankings.

Zverev, 21, has been touted about as one of the leaders of the new generation and has won three Masters titles in his short career but he has flattered to deceive at the Grand Slams.

Federer will be the night match on Sunday against Nishikori, while the first singles match of the tournament will see Anderson face off against Thiem.
