#1 Novak Djokovic

Top seed Novak Djokovic has already sewn up the year-end world no.1 ranking thanks to Rafael Nadal's withdrawal - the first man in ATP history to end the season as world no. 1 after having ranked outside the top 20 during it. 

But there's still plenty on the line for Djokovic at the O2. Winning the Nitto ATP Finals in 2018 would see him equal Roger Federer's all-time record of six titles at the season-ending championships, for one thing, and it would also ratify the Serb's resurgence back to dominance in the second half of the year after struggling with injuries and motivation. One thing is for certain - Djokovic will be extremely hard to beat in London, even if he fell to Karen Khachanov in the final of the Rolex Paris Masters.

ATP Finals appearances: 11 (2007-16, 2018)

Best result: Champion (2008, 2012-15)

Win-loss record: 31-11

2018 titles: Wimbledon, US Open, Cincinnati Masters, Shanghai Masters

2018 win-loss: 49-11

#2 Roger Federer

All-time Nitto ATP Finals title leader Roger Federer heads Group Lleyton Hewitt and enjoys a combined 12-5 head-to-head record against the other three players in his group. 

The 37-year-old Federer's season hasn't quite lived up to the promise of its beginning, which saw him win the Australian Open and become the oldest man to rank world no. 1, but he has picked up titles in Stuttgart and at the 500-level Swiss Indoors Basel a few weeks ago before losing in the semifinals to Djokovic at the Rolex Paris Masters.

ATP Finals appearances: 16

Best result: Champion (2003-4, 2006-7, 2010-11)

Win-loss record: 55-13

2018 titles: Australian Open, Rotterdam, Basel, Stuttgart

2018 win-loss: 46-8

#3 Alexander Zverev

The youngest man in the eight-player field, 21-year-old Alexander Zverev is making his second appearance at the Nitto ATP Finals after another successful season cemented him as the best young player on the ATP World Tour. 

Zverev may not have made huge inroads at Grand Slam level, although he did make his first quarterfinal at the French Open, but he continued to solidify his status as a top-five player, capturing his third Masters 1000 Series title in Madrid and winning titles in Munich and Washington, D.C. as well. 

After going 1-2 on his ATP Finals debut last year, can Zverev make the semifinals for the first time?

ATP Finals appearances: 2 (2017-18)

Best result: Round-robin (2017)

Win-loss record: 1-2

2018 titles: Madrid Masters, Washington, D.C., Munich

2018 win-loss record: 54-18

#4 Kevin Anderson

Making his debut at the Nitto ATP Finals in 2018 is Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson, hoping to find on his return to London some of the same magic that saw him come back from two sets down to shock Roger Federer in the quarterfinals at the All England Club, then defeat John Isner 26-24 in the fifth set in the longest men's semifinal ever recorded at Wimbledon.

Also a champion at the inaugural New York Open and the 500-level Erste Bank Open in Vienna a few weeks ago, Anderson's big serve will be a formidable force on the indoor hard courts at the ATP Finals.

ATP Finals appearances: 1 (2018)

Best result: -

Win-loss record: -

2018 titles: Vienna, New York

2018 win-loss record: 45-17

#5 Marin Cilic

In three previous appearances at the Nitto ATP Finals, Marin Cilic has won just one match - can he turn that terrible record around in 2018?

The Australian Open runner-up had his finest moment this season when he captured the title at the 500-level Fever-Tree Championships on the grass of Queen's Club. Cilic also made the quarterfinals of the French Open and US Open and Masters 1000 Series semifinals in Rome and Cincinnati.

ATP Finals appearances: 4 (2014, 2016-17)

Best result: Round-robin (2014, 2016-17)

Win-loss record: 1-8

2018 titles: Queen's Club

2018 win-loss: 41-18

#6 Dominic Thiem

French Open finalist Dominic Thiem had his best results of the year on clay, with that run to the Roland Garros final, titles in Lyon and Buenos Aires and a runner-up finish at the Madrid Masters, where he beat Rafael Nadal, to boot. 

But the Austrian has also been improving on hard courts, making the quarterfinals of the US Open, winning the 250 in St Petersburg on indoor hard courts and making the semifinals in Paris.

ATP Finals appearances: 3 (2016-18)

Best result: Round-robin (2016-17)

Win-loss record: 2-4

2018 titles: Buenos Aires, Lyon, St Petersburg

2018 win-loss record: 53-18

#7 Kei Nishikori

Kei Nishikori qualified for the Nitto ATP Finals for the fourth time after Juan Martin del Potro withdrew due to a fractured kneecap.

The 28-year-old Japanese superstar had a tough start to 2018, having shut down his 2017 season due to a wrist injury and returning to play Challengers as he tested out his wrist. But although a recent title continues to elude Nishikori - he has lost nine finals in a row - he has come back strong from injury, making finals in Monte Carlo, Tokyo and Vienna and the semifinals of the US Open.

ATP Finals appearances: 4 (2014-16, 2018)

Best result: Semifinals (2014, 2016)

Win-loss record: 4-7

2018 titles: -

2018 win-loss: 42-19

About the Nitto ATP Finals

Regarded as the second most prestigious annual tennis event behind the four grand slams, the ATP World Tour Finals sees the year’s top eight-ranked players descend on the O2 Arena in London in search of capturing the lucrative season-ending championships.

The season finale was first held in 1970 and it is currently under contract to be played at the O2 Arena in London annually (from 2009 - 2020). It was originally known as the Masters Grand Prix and ran by the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ITF), whereby it did not contribute towards any world rankings points for the players. However, the ATP took over in 1990 and the tournament became known as the ATP Tour World Championships. The event then underwent further changes throughout the following two decades, which included a rule and a name change to the Tennis Masters Cup, before it was officially renamed to the ATP World Tour Finals (as it is known today) in 2009. 

Players are now also rewarded with rankings points with a maximum of 1500 to be awarded to an undefeated winner. However, with each round-robin loss, there is a deduction of 200 points from that amount.

Roger Federer holds the record for most season-ending championship titles with six, winning twice when the competition was known as the Tennis Masters Cup and held in Houston (2003-04) and two more times in Shanghai in 2006-07, while he also captured duel crowns as the tournament was rebranded as the ATP World Tour Finals and moved to London, prevailing in 2010-11.

David Nalbandian (2005), Nikolay Davydenko (2009) and Grigor Dimitrov (2017) are the only players outside of the ‘Big Four’ since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002 to have won the ATP Finals title.
