Djokovic and Federer

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer have been drawn in the same group at the ATP Finals tournament, billed to begin on Sunday at London’s O2 Arena.

Five-time winner Djokovic and six-time winner Federer are drawn alongside Dominic Thiem and Matteo Berrettini at the season-ending championships, which features the year’s eight best players.

World number one Rafael Nadal is in the other group with Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.

The Spaniard, who pulled out of Paris Masters due to a “small” abdominal injury, has already announced he will be participating in London.

Nadal overtook Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings this week but could lose the position as year-end number one in London.

If the Spaniard does not play or fails to win a round-robin match at the ATP Finals, Djokovic will take top spot if he wins two group-stage matches and reaches the final.

Djokovic will also finish the year as number one if he wins the tournament and Nadal does not reach the semi-finals.

At the ATP Finals, the players play three round-robin matches with the top two in each group progressing to the semi-finals.
