With Rafael Nadal beating Richard Gasquet today in the Basel semifinals, the field for the 2015 London ATP Finals was confirmed with David Ferrer and Kei Nishikori grabbing the last two spots.
I am very excited to go back to London,” said Nishikori. “Being part of the best eight players in the world is a big honour and something I work very hard for every day. This tournament is one of the flagship tournaments of the year for us and I look forward to coming back.”
Ferrer will make his seventh appearance at the season finale. The 33-year-old Spaniard reached the final on his debut in 2007 in Shanghai (l. to Federer) and qualified four years in a row from 2010-’13 before serving as an alternate last year, stepping in to play the final round robin match for Milos Raonic.
“It’s an honour to be back in London and be amongst the best players in the world once again,” said Ferrer. “It’s been a great season for me and I really look forward to the tournament.”
Ferrer and Nishikori join three-time defending champion and 2008 titlist Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, six-time former winner Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych and Rafael Nadal.
The event begins on November 15.
