Roger Federer has been unconvincingly involved in the ATP finals in London. On Sunday night, the Swiss retreated 6: 7 (4), 3: 6 in front of Kay Nishikori in their first game in the group.
Statistics show that this is the first time in Maestro's glorious career, in which he does not win a game in the group stage of the final Masters. Until last night, only 6 were Federer's losses in the groups, but in each case he was at least set.
The defeat of Nishikori is also the fifth consecutive tennis player of Feder. The last player of the "ten" defeated by the maestro was Grigor Dimitrov in the final of Rotterdam in February. The last time the Swiss entered a similar series of consecutive defeats against the Top 10 was in the season of 2013 when you lost 7.
Another curious fact – Federer's defeat of Nishikori guaranteed Rafael Nadal to finish the year as number 2 in the ranking.
