Djokovic targeting sixth ATP Finals crown

Djokovic targeting sixth ATP Finals crown

Nishikori returned to action in January after a five-month absence due to a right wrist injury and fell to No. 39 in the ATP rankings, his lowest position since 2011.

"I'm very proud of that achievement and I understand that it's extra special this year because of the journey I've been through in the last 15 months, especially and particularly in the last eight to 10 months".

The 31-year-old looked tired in his defeat to the Russian big-hitter Karen Khachanov in the Paris Masters final, but there is no denying that he is back to his sliding, defending, counter-punching best. Competent off both wings, a force to be reckoned with on the baseline that allows him to dictate play by manoeuvring his opponent from side to side in order for him to create an opening to ferociously pounce with his shot of choice.

The top eight players in men's tennis head to London's O2 Arena for the season-ending ATP Finals. "It's been a good place for us to play to showcase our talents".

Cilic, Anderson, Nishikori and Thiem are all Grand Slam finalists.

As Wade explained in the post, the baby girl was delivered on Wednesday night via surrogate. Union has been open in the past with her experience with fertility issues.

Novak Djokovic can now add the "Comeback Player of the Year" award to his vast collection of honours and the Serb can complete his remarkable resurgence by winning a record-equalling sixth title at the ATP Finals next week. It has been a momentous year for the 32-year-old Anderson, who reached a career high of World No 5 in July and has become the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1995 to play in the season finale.

But just like his Argentine counterpart, it has been a career of niggling injuries. I was playing with them in the weekend, which cost me much more.' Asked if people would remember him for not being able to win a Grand Slam, Ferrer replied: 'Well, sometimes, but it does not matter. In 2013, he had knee issues during the early part of the season.

"It is a great success here and I personally have had phenomenal success so I should be the last one talking about moving it anywhere because I enjoy it".

What was to follow this year has seen Nishikori dig deep through perseverance, not giving up his childhood dream of becoming a professional tennis player and pure determination to reach the top of the game again. 'Because this event is the biggest event the ATP owns. Djokovic leads Federer 25-22, but they are neck and neck across surfaces: it's 13-13 on hard courts and 4-4 on clay; Djokovic shades it 6-4 indoor and 2-1 on grass.
