Top-seeded Rafael Nadal has been picked in the Pete Sampras group alongside Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov, and David Goffin for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals that begins on Sunday. Roger Federer will lead the Boris Becker Group, which has Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic, and Jack Sock.

Nadal has had an exceptional 2017, winning six titles that include his 10th Roland Garros and third US Open crown. The Spaniard, who has a 67-10 match record in 2017, has been placed in the Group Pete Sampras alongside Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov, and David Goffin and will try to cap off the year on a high at the O2 arena in London. 

Nadal’s arch nemesis, 19-time Grand slam champion, Federer, has been drawn in Group Boris Becker with Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic, and Jack Sock. The Swiss will try to capture his seventh year-end title (2003-04, 2006-07, 2010-11). Recently, to keep himself fit for London, the Shanghai Masters champion Federer pulled out of the Paris Masters. 

Eight different countries are represented in the eight-man singles tournament for the second consecutive year, with Group Pete Sampras matches scheduled to begin on November 12. Group Boris Becker matches will begin on the next day, on November 13. The groups are named after two Pete Sampras, who had won the 1991, 1994, 1996-97, 1999 season finale crowns, and Boris Becker, who had won the 1988, 1992, 1995 titles.
