TEN­NIS

The Cairns Post - - SPORT -

THE ATP World Tour Fi­nals is the last event on the ATP cal­en­dar for 2018 and the mar­ket sug­gests it will be No­vak Djokovic and Roger Fed­erer who meet in the de­cider. Djokovic has won the tour­na­ment on five oc­ca­sions and he is a dom­i­nant $1.62 favourite to win for the sixth time. Stand­ing in his way is the only player who has al­ready won the event six times – the great Fed­erer. The Swiss Mas­ter is $3.75 to win the tour­na­ment for the first time since he beat Jo-Wil­fried Tsonga in the 2011 edi­tion, but his re­cent record against Djokovic is poor. Djokovic has won eight of the past 10 matches be­tween the pair, in­clud­ing the past four, and he has been in peer­less form in the sec­ond half of the sea­son. Alexan­der Zverev is on the third line of bet­ting at $11 from Marin Cilic ($13), Kei Nishikori ($15), Kevin An­der­son ($21), Do­minic Thiem ($26) and John Is­ner ($29).
