ATP Staff | 12 November 2015


World No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic has been drawn in the same group as six-time winner Roger Federer at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.


Djokovic, who is hoping to clinch a fifth title at the season finale next week, leads Group Stan Smith alongside Federer, Tomas Berdych and Kei Nishikori.


The 28-year-old Serb comes into the season finale on a 22-match winning streak, taking in four straight titles at the US Open, Beijing, Shanghai and Paris. Djokovic is a four-time winner of the Final Showdown, lifting the trophy in 2008 in Shanghai, before three successive victories in London from 2012-14.


These groups were going to be tough regardless of who was going to be in the group,” said Federer. “But I’m excited to be back and can’t wait for it to start.”


World No. 2 Andy Murray, competing at the elite tournament for the seventh time, has been drawn in Group Ilie Nastase alongside Stan Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer.


Murray is bidding to win the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for the first time, having reached the semi-finals three times previously. The Dunblane native is looking to finish in the Top 2 in the Emirates ATP Rankings for the first time in his career and currently holds a 1,130-point lead over Federer.
