Roger Federer sees no reason to move ATP Finals from London

  • He fell to Marin Cilic in the final of the 2014 US Open

"If they stay I think it's definitely a good choice", said the Swiss.

Along with Juan Martin delPotro, the Japanese star was tipped to be one of the guys that would eventually break the stranglehold that Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray had on the men's game for so long.

There are expected to be only two more editions of this season-ending finale in London after this one before it moves elsewhere, and Federer and Djokovic disagree on the event's future. I know this is the biggest yearly event they have here at the O2. "You don't get any presents when you're playing against the Top 8". "And, of course, I'm very, very happy and proud about it". 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. "It turned out to be a flawless five months". Nadal cited an abdominal injury to close his season early - he hasn't played since the US Open. Kevin Anderson and John Isner, who have qualified on the back of their career-best years, are long shots.

Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem, from a generation further below, are still developing. Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic, the players expected to follow in the footsteps of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, have shown no inclination to do so. In fact, the trio of Cilic, Zverev and Thiem collectively won two matches out of nine at the 2017 Finals and crashed out in the round-robin stage. "We've always been proud of our ability to bring some of the world's best talent to New Zealand, and having players go on and qualify for the Finals just emphasises that" said Budge. He has won four this year, including the Australian Open, in what has been a less consistently transcendent campaign.


"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".

"It seemed to me that Sampras and Agassi had to be out of the picture before Federer gained the confidence to win". But at the same time I feel as a general idea of this event is that it travels more'.

"It's going to be interesting to see how he comes back but I'm confident it's not going to be a problem if he returns at 100%".
