Rafael Nadal's injury scare looms large over ATP Finals, possible Fedal clash

Rafael Nadal's injury scare looms large over ATP Finals, possible Fedal clash”

Federer, whose win was his 50th of the season, said he was pleased with his form, having last played competitively in his Swiss Indoors Basel final win over Juan Martin del Potro in late October. "I didn't expect him to be this good yet". "Being here is an important thing but for me the most important thing is everything that happened to me this year, the tournaments, competing nearly every week with a very competitive level of tennis, being healthy until Paris", he said.

World number one Rafael Nadal said on Friday that he still can not guarantee he will play in London's ATP Finals starting this weekend.

"But for a start, I think it was actually quite encouraging and actually okay".

The first set was decided in the first game when Jack dropped his serve, and that was the only break point we saw in the entire set, despite 4 games that reached deuce after that.

He continued to make good progress, reaching the semi-final of the Australian Open where he just came up short against Nadal in an epic five-set contest.

The Spaniard has defended his drought by suggesting the surface be switched from hard to his favoured clay, but Federer is not convinced. He played more tournaments.

The 25-year-old will be looking to give a good account of American tennis, becoming the first USA player to feature at the event since Mardy Fish back in 2011.

"I think it's not the time of the year for clay, so there you have it. But I get his point, it's a fair point".

"It was a big distraction, I'll tell you that", Federer joked about Sock's backside, "because it was very big". Now there's no more turning back.

"That's what I should have aimed for".

Federer has won a record six titles at the ATP Finals, including two in Houston, two in Shanghai and two in London.

Sock admitted he had not expected it to come off.

"He had more gas left in the tank than I did". "I probably do it three times a year, it's not a normal tactic".

Alexander Zverev produced a blistering finish to win a back-and-forth encounter 6-4 3-6 6-4 against Marin Cilic on his ATP Finals debut.

With the momentum, it appeared Cilic would take the victory as he broke for a 3-1 lead in the decider. "It's just still early days in the tournament".
