The Nitto ATP World Tour Finals draw took place this morning and you can see the groups in the table below. Roger is in Group Boris Becker along with the heavy hitters Zverev & Cilic and last-minute qualifier Jack Sock.
I think the groups are fairly balanced but if you look at the type of opponent Roger can struggle against then they're both in his group in the shape of Cilic and Zverev. Group Pete Sampras is arguably the easier of the two with Thiem who's hardcourt form is a shambles, Dimitrov who still isn't pulling off big wins consistently and Goffin who has one eye on the Davis Cup. Based on that Nadal should be coming through the group easily if his knees hold up. I think Fed will too but it might not be plain sailing.
|Group Pete Sampras||Group Boris Becker|
|Rafael Nadal||Roger Federer|
|Dominic Thiem||Alexander Zverev|
|Grigor Dimitrov||Marin Cilic|
|David Goffin||Jack Sock|
What do you guys think of the groups? Let me know in the comments.
