No early meeting for Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at the ATP Finals
World No 1 Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer won’t meet in the round-robin phase of the ATP Finals as the two are in different groups.
Five-time champion Djokovic leads the Group Guga Kuerten and will face Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner, the man who replaced Rafael Nadal in the draw.
Nadal pulled out of the tournament on Monday as he still hasn’t recovered from the abdominal injury that kept him out of the Paris Masters last week.
Six-time champion and second seed Federer, meanwhile, headlines the Group Lleyton Hewitt with Kevin Anderson, Dominic Thiem and Kei Nishikori his round-robin opponents.
