Djokovic, Murray Drawn Opposite Federer at ATP World Tour Finals
Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic and U.S. Open winner Andy Murray were placed in the same group at the ATP World Tour Finals today.
Serbia’s Djokovic and Murray of Britain were drawn in group A, alongside former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic and France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who made the finals of the season-ending event at London’s O2 arena last year.
Defending champion Roger Federer of Switzerland will start his quest for a record-extending seventh ATP World Tour Finals title in group B. Spain’s David Ferrer, former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina and Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic were also drawn in group B.
The ATP Finals, which start Nov. 5, feature a round-robin format, with the top eight singles and doubles players on the ATP rankings divided into two groups. Each plays the three others in the group, with the top two in each section moving into the knockout semifinals.
