Trends & Predictions

✪ Four of the last five ATP World Tour Finals have been won by the year-end no. 1 player. Rafael Nadal has already clinched the year's top ranking, so he is theoretically the favorite in London. However, injuries may force him to withdraw from the Finals or at least hinder his progress in London. He also has a Federer's problem. Roger has won their last five meetings including four in 2017. Moreover, the last reigning no. 1 player to not win the Finals is none other than Nadal (2013).

Last five winners & rankings: Andy Murray (#1), Novak Djokovic (#1), Djokovic (#1), Djokovic (#2), Djokovic (#1)
Past winners (in field): Federer (6) *None after 2011

✪ In a strong and limited field like the Tour Finals, a good head-to-head record against other top players is key to performing well. Rafael Nadal is the only one in the field to hold a positive career record against each of the other seven players. As previously mentioned, he does have a Federer's problem having lost their last five meetings. Roger enjoys a positive record against most players except Nadal and Dominic Thiem. The worst scenario for Federer is to meet Thiem in the semifinal and Nadal/Zverev in the final. Since these are single-elimination matches, the Swiss star won't have a second chance.

Nadal against Federer (23-15), Zverev (3-0), Thiem (5-2), Cilic (5-1), Dimitrov (10-1), Goffin (2-0), Sock (4-0)
Federer against Nadal (15-23), Zverev (2-2), Thiem (1-2), Cilic (7-1), Dimitrov (6-0), Goffin (6-0), Sock (3-0)
Best performers in Masters 1000 (2017): Federer (3 titles), Nadal (2 titles), Alexander Zverev (2 titles), Jack Sock (1 title, 1 SF), Grigor Dimitrov (1 title)
