Rafael Nadal will begin his latest bid to win the ever-elusive ATP Finals title against Alexander Zverev on Monday, providing he wins his battle with his fitness.

Nadal has been a finalist on two occasions at the season-ending event in 2010 and 2013, losing both to his old rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, who by contrast have racked up 11 titles between them.

The 33-year-old Spaniard has much to worry about as he prepares to face the defending champion, having been forced to pull out of his Paris Masters semi-final against Denis Shapovalov with an abdominal injury last week.

He has trained as normal, however, and is hoping to be fully fit in time for the off.

“It's a tournament [where] you will face the top guys since the beginning, so you need to be 100 per cent ready,” he is quoted as saying by the ATP's official website

"But I really hope that I will be able to serve every single day a little better, and my goal is to be on Sunday serving normal. I have good hopes to be 100 per cent ready for Monday."
