Second Serve


Juan Martin del Potro has made his withdrawal from this year’s ATP World Tour Finals official, which means that Kei Nishikori is now a part of the eight-player field set to do battle from 11-18 November at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

The Japanese star has been on the rise since beginning his comeback on the Challenger circuit this winter. Nishikori won the Dallas Challenger in February but dropped all the way to No.39 in the rankings before beginning his climb back to the Top 10. He reached finals at Monte-Carlo, Tokyo and Vienna and has reached at least the quarterfinals in his last six events.

Nishikori joins a star-studded field that features World No.1 Novak Djokovic, Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal, Australian Open champion Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev, Kevin Anderson, Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem.

The No.1 ranking will be decided in London, with Djokovic and Nadal battling for the top spot. The winner will tie Federer by making his fifth ATP year-end No.1 finish.
