17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer is the latest player to secure his spot in the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in November. He will join Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, who were confirmed several months back.
The world No. 3’s entry into the Finals marks a record 13th consecutive time that he has made it to the year-end tournament. He earned his spot this year after winning his sixth title at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.
“It’s always one of the big goals I set myself at the beginning of the season,” said Federer. “It’s always an absolute honour being part of the best eight. Getting a chance to win an extra trophy at the end of the season – which is so prestigious, one of the biggest ones we have in the game and one I’ve done so well at – is a great feeling. Returning to the season finale is something I’ve been a part of since 2002, so to do it again is a privilege and I will try to play my very best there. I hope I can save some of my best for last.”
Federer compiled a 44-10 record this season, as well as three titles (Dubai, Halle & Cincinnati). He also reached the finals of the Brisbane International, Indian Wells, Monte Carlo, Toronto and the Wimbledon Championships.
The Barclays World Tour Finals takes place between the 9-16 November, 2014 at The O2 arena in London.
