I never had a chance against Roger Federer, says David Ferrer

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic were split yesterday over whether the season-ending ATP Finals should remain in London after 2020 as tennis chiefs consider where the event should be staged in future.

Nadal this week pulled out of the tournament in London - guaranteeing Djokovic will end the season as the world number one.

The two players had been due to meet in Jeddah's King Abdullah Sports City on December 22 but faced calls to withdraw following the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the country's consulate in Istanbul last month.

The Swiss broadly supports it staying in the United Kingdom capital, where huge crowds of over 250,000 are attracted, while Djokovic favours moving it around the world. I never thought it was impossible but I thought it might take more time. I was playing with them in the weekend, which cost me much more.' Asked if people would remember him for not being able to win a Grand Slam, Ferrer replied: 'Well, sometimes, but it does not matter. I knew that if they were doing well and I was doing well, I would have struggled. Connors said recently. "Would I like 109 to live forever?"

When Djokovic began the year outside the top 10 in the ATP rankings and battling the elbow injury that sidelined him for the second half of 2017, few imagined he would arrive for the season-ender in London back as leader of the pack. "This event is the biggest event that the ATP owns and you have the best eight players in the world in a unique format, a round-robin system". It's not anything to do with London or the event.

"There are a lot of numbers", Federer said in an interview after winning the United States Open in 2005 when presented with some of his already-flashy statistics.

"I don't want it to move from London", he said.

'I personally have had phenomenal success and I should be the last one talking about moving it anywhere. And he was not at 100 per cent.

"The problem is that he has been No. 1, has won double Olympic gold, it's not enough to play last-16 or quarters".

"It's going to be interesting to see how he comes back but I'm confident it's not going to be a problem if he returns at 100%". "Maybe until Monte Carlo I was playing terribly and didn't feel like I had any confidence and I wasn't playing good tennis at that time". I just can't tell you how he's feeling'.
