Roger Federer qualifies for ATP Finals for the 15th time in his career- View: 14069 by Gatto Luigi
The second half of the season just started, and we have already two male players qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Not only Rafael Nadal, who booked his "ticket" already a month ago by winning his tenth Roland Garros title, but also Roger Federer who earned 6,545 points this year so far.
The Swiss player won five titles this year: Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Halle and Wimbledon, and so he is 100% sure to play in the O2 Arena from 12 November. 'I look forward to returning to London in November', the 19-time Grand Slam champion said through a statement.
'I was sad not to be able to compete last year as I love playing there and had not missed the event since 2002.' Federer played the Year-End tournament for 14 straight season from 2002 to 2015, and in 2016 despite he was relatively close to be qualified, he could not play due to injury.
Federer won six titles there (2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011), 52 Matches and lost 12. In the ATP Race to London, Dominic Thiem is third, Stan Wawrinka fourth, the Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic No. 5. Alexander Zverev, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray follow up.
