"It turned to out to be a flawless five months of the year, with two Grand Slam titles", he added.

'I feel like he's very quickly played a top 30 level, ' said Federer of what he saw from Murray this summer.

Djokovic has made an incredible comeback following elbow surgery early in the year, overcoming indifferent form to win Wimbledon and the US Open and haul himself back to the number one spot. The Nadal-Djokovic matchup, on the other hand, suffers from the fact that there have been very few occasions when they have played each other at their absolute peaks.

That's preceded by the opening doubles match, in which another South African qualifier, the Wimbledon doubles runner-up Raven Klaasen, competes at the ATP Finals for the second time.

Though a exhausted Djokovic fell to young gun Karen Khachanov in the final of the Paris Masters on Sunday, he will once again start as the overwhelming favourite at the Tour Finals.

Djokovic picked up two awards, while Federer continues to dominate the fan favorite category. This is the third year running that eight different countries have been represented in the singles field. "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 still however, has four titles to his name this year, with further victories in the Stuttgart and Basel Open. The indoor hard-courts, with their controlled environment, provide an nearly flawless canvas for Federer's artistry.

John Isner, like Anderson, will also be making his debut at the tournament. Isner, who replaced the injured Nadal, has followed nearly the same career path as Anderson. Normally the big servers prefer indoors because they have the advantage.

The 28-year-old is one of the most complete players in the game. Though Isner lost the match, it was another marker of his progression in the sport.

"I've had another great year and qualified for London, which remains a top priority at the start of each season".

Though not debutants, Thiem and Cilic will hope to make a mark at the season finale this year.

"Will he be able to play week in week out or will he have to play less tournaments like I do but still be successful?"

The pace at which Federer plays and the rhythm he gets into on fast courts have never been to Djokovic's liking. "Djokovic, Zverev, Cilic, Isner is a pretty rough one". He's had an incredible second half to the year.

What channel is Roger Federer vs Kei Nishikori on? "I just feel the concept of this event should be the one that travels".

It has been another long, draining season for these eight men standing. The battle royale will begin in London on Sunday, with Anderson and Thiem playing the opener.
