Andy Murray has been drawn alongside Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and David Ferrer for the group stage of the 2015 ATP Tour Finals at the O2 Arena in London, the tournament held for the world's top-eight ranked players held between 15-22 November. Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic, who has won this event for the last three years in succession and recently collected titles in Beijing, Shanghai and Paris as well as at the US Open, will face Roger Federer during the opening phase, as well as Tomas Berdych and Kei Nishikori.
In the doubles, Jamie Murray and partner John Peersare set to square-off against American twins Bob and Mike Bryan, Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini and Rohan Bopanna and Florin Mergea. Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau have been placed in Group Fleming/McEnroe with Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo in addition to Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut and Marcin Matkowski and Nenad Zimonjic.
Before the draw involving mayor Boris Johnson took place at City Hall, ATP executive chairman and president Chris Kermode confirmed that a deal had been reached to keep the finals in London for at least the next three years. After moving from Shanghai to the English capital back in 2009, the competition has consistently drawn large crowds and become a staple of the winter sporting calendar.
"We are delighted to have reached an agreement which will see the tournament celebrate its 10th successive year in London in 2018," Kermode said. "The tournament has been a spectacular success since moving to The O2 in 2009, generating record crowds, incredible atmospheres and a soaring worldwide TV audience, which broke the 100 million mark for the first time last year.
"The O2 has enabled us to present the sport in a new and vibrant way, in a media-friendly time zone, and in one of the world's greatest cities. For us, there is currently no better place to stage our season-ending event."
Home supporters will be hoping that the Murray brothers come through unscathed, with the finals of the tournament scheduled to take place just five days before Great Britain face Belgium in their first ever Davis Cup final on clay at the Flanders Expo in Ghent.
