The draw for the group phase of the ATP World Tour Finals is out.

Our champ will compete against Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and David Ferrer in Group Ilie Nastase – not an easy draw!

Group Stan Smith:

  • No. 1 Novak Djokovic
  • No. 3 Roger Federer
  • N0. 6 Tomas Berdych
  • No. 8 Kei Nishikori

Group ​Ilie Nastase:

  • No. 2 Andy Murray
  • No. 4 Stan Wawrinka
  • No. 5 Rafael Nadal
  • No. 7 David Ferrer

Rafa’s record against other World Tour Finals qualifiers: 123-53

  • vs. Stan Wawrinka: 13-3
  • vs. Tomas Berdych: 19-4

Rafa reached the final in London in 2013 and 2010. He missed last year’s tournament after undergoing a late-season appendectomy. Our champ was also forced to miss the season finale through injury in 2005, 2008 and 2012.

The competition begins at The O2 in London on November 15, with the final scheduled to take place one week later.

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

    The most important thing is that Rafael Nadal is in London, looking confident and happy, .All good wishes to him. I do think that the surface should alternate between clay and hard court. It would be a fairer system. Vamos Rafaaaaaa
