ATP Finals: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer clash in doubt

ATP Finals: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer clash in doubt

Federer, whose win was his 50th of the season, said he was pleased with his form, having last played competitively in his Swiss Indoors Basel final win over Juan Martin del Potro in late October.

"I missed one first serve in the first game", Sock said.

Belgium's fleet-footed world No.8 David Goffin may trail Rafael Nadal 0-2 in head-to-head clashes, without even a set to his credit in the two clay court features played over the summer, but the 26-year-old feels a faster surface, like the one at the Nitto ATP Finals, could even out the meeting with the world No.1 on Monday night.

"Sure, I would have loved to be it, but you can't be it with that many tournaments, so it's no problem for me".

Federer, however, reported positively from his exhibition match with Murray in Glasgow when the pair played out three light-hearted sets.

"I don't have to make a decision [yet]", he said.

"Could it be switched up to clay once in a while?"

"We need to think seriously about all these rule changes if ever you're going to do it because once you do it, you don't want to bounce back and forth with changing something and then you don't like it later on", said Federer. "I am number one in the world, I have achieved a lot of things but if the game needs something to be more attractive for the fans, that's the way that the game will move forward". "But I get his point, it's a fair point". "So, I don't have any regrets because I feel like in my stage of my competition, my age, either it comes to me or it doesn't", Federer told reporters.

In his mid-30s there were those who wondered whether he could come back from such a big injury but he certainly did return in style, also lifting two Grand Slams.

No player now on tour is flawless by any means, though Nadal is certainly one of the best at making it extremely hard for an opponent to expose his flaws. "That target was bigger than the down-the-line court that I had". "I did it more for fun", Sock said.

In the late match, Alexander Zverev beat Wimbledon runner-up Marin Cilic 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

Federer and Zverev will go head to head in what now looks a crunch match on Tuesday evening, with Cilic and Sock playing earlier in the day.
