10-17 November   

Spanish tennis icon Rafael Nadal will be looking to clinch his maiden ATP Finals title in London, England.

The 33-year-old is widely regarded as one of greatest tennis players of all-time and he is currently placed at the top of the ATP rankings.
 
Novak Djokovic in action
 
Nadal, who has won 19 Grand Slam singles titles, the second-most in history for a male player, has never won the ATP Finals title.
 
The Mallorca-born player was defeated in the 2013 final by Novak Djokovic after finishing second behind Roger Federer in 2010.
 
Nadal is hoping to shrug off an injury ahead of this year's tournament and he is determined to compete in Britain. 
"Yesterday (Monday) I had a resonance in Mallorca and despite having a small strain in the right abdominal rectum," Nadal said.

"The idea is to be able to play the ATP finals in London. Thanks for the support."
 
Roger Federer in action 
 
Nadal will face stiff competition from the likes of Djokovic and Federer, who is the most successful tennis player in history.
 
Swiss superstar Federer also holds the record for the most ATP Finals titles having won the tournament six times. 
 
Lastly, the 45th edition of the doubles competition will also be played in London.
 
The defending champions are Mike Bryan and Jack Sock, who won last year's doubles titles.
 
They are hoping to continue their dominance having also won the competition in 2014.
