Dominant Djokovic heads betting

Novak Djokovic Wins The BNP PARIBAS Masters - Paris

Novak Djokovic has won the last three ATP World Tour Finals events and followed up victory in London last year with all but one of the 2015 Grand Slams to cement his dominance of men’s singles tennis.

Coral don’t expect this status quo to change, making Serbian racket star and world number one Djokovic a firm odds-on 4/9 favourite for a fourth consecutive crown at the O2 Arena, and it begs the question who, if anyone, will lay the gauntlet down to him?

With Great Britain hope Andy Murray (9/1) clearly focusing on the forthcoming Davis Cup final against Belgium, as he is training on clay courts as much as the hard surface upon which the ATP Tour Finals take place, it’s down to 7/2 chance Roger Federer to stop Djokovic.

Nadal and Wawrinka are Murray group foes

Swiss sensation Federer will get up close and personal with the Serbian during the group stage, joined by Tomas Berdych and Kei Nishikori, who appear to offer little more than making up the numbers in the Stan Smith section.

Murray, meanwhile, is fancied to top his pool at 13/8, which also contains 12/1 tournament chance Stan Wawrinka. Rafael Nadal (14/1), seeded fifth, has also been drawn in the Ilie Nastase group which is completed by compatriot David Ferrer.

Although he’s never won the ATP World Tour Finals title, the Spaniard is a fearsome opponent when in form, and his recent runs to both the Shanghai Masters and Swiss Indoor finals suggests injury struggles are behind him for now.
