This tennis year has been very intriguing and full of interesting and unexpected occurrences: magnificent Murray’s comeback, Djokovic defeat, Wawrinka’s great performance, excellent end of the year by Cilic, Gael Monfils and Dominic Thiem debuting in London. The 2016 ATP World Tour Finals will again be hosted by London and it’s predicted to become great adornment to the entire season. Let’s analyze the draw and try to make the best we can with our betting predictions.
Group A: Cilic, Murray, Nishikori, Wawrinka
Marin Cilic. His form is quite clear. The Croat lacks the glory. Yes, he has claimed the title in Basel and defeated Djokovic at the Paris Masters. But we should put it straight: many top players have run out of power by the end of the season and Cilic took advantage of this fact. Marin has already played at the O2 arena but with no success. He was bageled twice and managed to take one set only from Stan Wawrinka. We don’t think that now the story will be different. However, his opponents will make the difference.
Kei Nishikori. Judging by his performance during the latest months, the Japanese is the weakest of all competitors in London. We guess it’s due to his injury and do not take him seriously.
Stan Wawrinka. After the St. Petersburg Open the Swiss has played all the events in a slipshod manner. However, we bet that the Swiss will put himself together to show his best tennis. He has already claimed that London Finals is of great priority to him. In the previous finals he made it to the semifinals and could progress this year.
Andy Murray is in a very good form. The new world No.1 will be performing in front of the local audience and should be oversupported! However, the year-ending event has always been very tough for Andy. During the last three finals he never made it out of the group. Now he’s 100% ready and should definitely progress to the semis.
Betting prediction: Cilic – 20% for his exit to the semis, Nishikori – about 35%.
Most probably, Murray and Wawrinka will get to the semifinal clashes.
Group B: Raonic, Monfils, Djokovic, Thiem
Dominic Thiem is the evident underdog. The Austrian is too young debuting in the Finals and the surface isn’t his best. He’ll hardly win a set on it.
Gael Monfils is the dark horse of the group. By and large, we won’t be surprise if he wins the event. The Frenchmale’s technique suits well fast courts. Gael serves well, is good on return and reaches all balls from the baseline. The question is in his playing form. The fact that he didn’t show up in Paris is a bit alarming, but Monfils could be preparing for London Finals.
Milos Raonic. The question is whether there was an injury or not? If it is no joke, than how serious it is? Milos Raonic has enough cash not to risk his health. So as Raonic has confirmed his participation, he should be fit. His performance in Paris was very decent. Now we bet he’ll progress to the semi-final.
Novak Djokovic. The Serb has won three consecutive finals. Now the task is more complicated.
Betting prediction: Dominic Thiem has almost no chances (about 5% to exit from the group), Raonic, Monfils and Djokovic have equal chances (65%).
As for the semifinal and final matches, it’s highly probable that we’ll see someone from the John McEnroe Group will be playing in the final. Raonic and Monfils will lack experience and self-possession to beat Murray and Wawrinka. As for Djokovic, the semis is the limit for him now: too many mental and physical issues to overcome.
We guess that the main contenders for the title will be Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray. The Scot has richly deserved it with his excellent performance, while Stan has proved to be highly competitive at major events.

From the moment he appeared on courts, Kei Nishikori has always been one of 5 or 6 super talented promising players.
