Defending champion Roger Federer boasts a phenomenal record in this competition. He won his sixth title last year and comes into this season's tournament bidding to achieve a feat no player has accomplished since Ivan Lendl in the 1980s, and that is to win three ATP Finals is a row.
The Swiss ace managed to avoid World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray in the round-robin phase of the competition having been drawn in Group B alongside Spain's David Ferrer, Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina and Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic. And Federer will no doubt be determined to avenge his recent Swiss Indoors Basel final defeat to del Potro.
The 31-year-old pulled out of last week's BNP Paribas Masters in Paris in preparation for the event, explaining his decision to fans on his official website, "I really wanted to defend my title as I had such great memories from last year but I need to address a few little injuries so that I am able to compete next week in London at the ATP World Tour Finals."
Novak Djokovic, who suffered a shock defeat in his first match in Paris to Sam Querrey, has been drawn in Group A meanwhile, which also consists of US Open champion Andy Murray, former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic and France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Though Djokovic and Murray will be favourites to emerge from Group A, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will have other ideas as he looks to recapture the form that saw him reach last season's final in London, where he was narrowly beaten by Roger Federer.
The action gets under way at the O2 Arena on Monday with Andy Murray opening his account against Tomas Berdych at 13:45 GMT, before Novak Djokovic meets Tsonga.
