Agassi brands Federer the favourite over Nadal


Tournament favourite and six-time victor Roger Federer has meanwhile enjoyed a far more tranquil build-up having missed the Paris Masters after winning the Swiss Indoors, to ensure he was fully fit for the London showcase. He played more tournaments.

― Reuters picLONDON, Nov 13 ― Roger Federer says he does not regret passing up the chance to topple great rival Rafael Nadal from the top of the world rankings at the ATP Finals in London this week. He was incredibly successful throughout.

The 31-year-old, forced to pull out of the Paris Masters last week with a knee injury, is painfully aware that the ATP Finals is the one major piece of silverware missing from his trophy cabinet and he wants to put that right.

"In a couple of days you can not expect to be 100% but I had treatment and I'm expecting to be better and better every day".

Jackson needs Kizer to produce points inside the 20 to stay on the field and position the Browns to get that elusive first win. Ironically, it seems the Browns might have their best chance for victory yet this season based on the game's early going.

"But things evaporated very quickly after he (Nadal) won the US Open".

"That was it for me really".

The world No. 37 Rublev, the highest-ranked qualifier for the event restricted to players aged 21 and under, lost his cool as the relentless Chung turned the match around. "I'm happy that I won". "And like this, I can focus on playing the tournament, and not having to talk about that at the same time", Federer said. You can work on stuff, whereas if every point counts so much. there's no room for anything any more.

"I got off to a great start, and was able to play a bit more freely after that", the 36-year-old told The Guardian.

Defeat in the first match at the Round Robin stage need not be decisive for Sock, but the tournament debutant will have to do well in tough-looking matches against Alexander Zverev and Marin Cilic; it is hard to imagine the Boris Becker group's advancing pair being anything other than Federer plus one.

"I'm doing my best", said the Spaniard, twice a runner-up but never champion of the season-ending event.

Rafael Nadal hasn't been the only injured member of the Big Four getting back to full fitness at the ATP Finals in London. "But very often in a first match like this, it gets thrown overboard because at the end you're just happy to be serving well".
