Roger Federer is the favorite to win ATP Finals, says Tim Henman

The former world No. 4 Tim Henman spoke about Roger Federer's chances to win the ATP Finals in London. After a stunning win over Novak Djokovic, the Swiss will face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semifinals. Henman backed the Basel native to lift the title for the first time since 2011: “I think he is the favourite now.

It was an amazing performance against Djokovic. I was disappointed in myself almost that we sit in the commentary box and try and write him off. On an indoor court that’s playing a bit quick, that’s borderline naive.

Every time he got the chance to pull the trigger from the baseline, he did. And he didn't make many unforced errors. One of his very best performances I have seen. Now getting through to the semis he takes huge confidence from that”.

Greg Rusedski spoke about the dominance of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic: "What's been great is having these three guys push each other. Because they've been in the same generation playing, it's kept Federer playing.

It's kept him fresh at 38 because he's worried about the two guys stealing all his records. Then Rafa is pushing himself because Novak's on his tail. Having these guys at the same time has forced them to lengthen their careers."
