Andy Murray will go head-to-head with six-time champion Roger Federer at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Despite that, the British number one looks to have been given a kind draw as he was matched with Federer, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic in Group B, with the latter two competitors playing in the season-ending tournament for the first time.

Murray avoided world number one Djokovic, who has beaten Murray on the four occasions they have played each other this year.

Djokovic will face Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic in Group A.
