I will travel to London - Rafael Nadal hopeful over ATP Finals participation

Novak Djokovic 'Second part of the week in Paris was terrific'

Matteo Berrettini was unlucky in the draw for the ATP Finals getting Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Dominique Thiem in the Borg Group. He last won the title in 2011.

Nadal has won four titles in total this season: a ninth Rome Masters crown; a 35th ATP Masters 1000 trophy at the Montreal Masters; his 12th Roland Garros triumph; plus a fourth US Open to round off the Slams in style. He finished as the runner-up in 2010 and 2012.

The pair will do battle in the Bjorn Borg group at the O2 Arena and are joined by French Open finalist Dominic Thiem and Italian debutant Matteo Berrettini.

Rafael Nadal has returned to the top of the ATP rankings, regaining top spot from rival Novak Djokovic for the first time since November 2018. He has previously made two finals, the last one in 2013.

Djokovic is hoping to play on for as many years as possible.

The Spaniard said an MRI scan had confirmed a "small" abdominal injury, which forced him to withdraw from the semi-finals in Paris.

Apple fixes bugs in new iOS 13.3 Beta
Apple's iOS 13 had a rocky start ever since its release in September and this iOS version is still very buggy . These issues also triggered many frustrated users to air their complaints in various inline forum sites.

Zverev did not have a preference about which group he was in.

Defending champion Zverev has had a hard year winning only one title at the ATP 250 in Geneva, as it has been a year of disappointing early losses and off-court issues for the German.

Despite his injury pull-out last weekend, the 19-time grand slam champion returned to the top of the world rankings on Monday, displacing Novak Djokovic.

While the Greek may not be as settled or consistent as some of his peers, like Medvedev and Thiem, he definitely has proven himself capable of defeating any and all of the contenders in London.

Each match won in the group stage in the ATP finals is worth 200 points, the semi-finals are 600 points and the final an extra 500. He then had to endure a month of no tennis due to the severity of the injury.

"I am very happy to play at the O2 again".
