The ATP has announced today that World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has qualified for the year-end finals held in London. Djokovic joins Rafael Nadal as the only two players thus far who have locked in positions for the 8-man round-robin event beginning on November 4.

“[Being defending champion] adds a little bit of extra expectation and pressure,” said Djokovic who beat Roger Federer in the 2012 final. “Knowing that I can play that well on the centre stage gives me enough reason to believe that I can do it again. That is something that inspires me to prepare well and perform my best.”

Djokovic also beat Nikolay Davydenko to win the tournament in 2008, the last year it was held in Shanghai. He has now qualified for the event seven straight years.

The Serb is currently ranked No. 1 but has only one title (Monte Carlo) since his early March triumph in Dubai.

Tennis x Hippy Chic Says:

its still a long way off,but well to to Nole in joining Rafa in qualifying for the WTFs,the way i see it most of the usual players will most probably get there anyway,with Tipsaravic been the only one who doesnt,the question mark will be Roger hopefully he wont fall anymore,it would be unusual if he were not to qualify.


Tennis x Hippy Chic Says:

Sorry meant well done to Nole in my 1st sentence.


Steve 27 Says:

With 3500 points is enough to qualify to the WTF
So, Murray and Ferrer are in th london , too.


Michael Says:

Congrats to Novak for his qualification at the World Tour Finals. But he needs to buck up pretty fast. The No.1 ranking is at stake. The only way he can gain points in Us Open is by winning it.
