Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas was named on Friday as the most improved player of 2018 by the ATP World Tour Awards.

He posted a 22-match winning streak from Cincinatti to the Paris Masters, taking in the U.S. Open where he beat Del Potro to earn his 14th Grand Slam title and go equal third on the all-time list with Pete Sampras, behind only Nadal and Federer.

No. 2-ranked Nadal pulled out of the season-ending ATP Finals because of an abdominal injury, then underwent surgery on his right ankle to start 2019 healthy. It has been a momentous year for the 32-year-old Anderson, who reached a career high of World No 5 in July and has become the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1995 to play in the season finale. Kevin Anderson and John Isner, who have qualified on the back of their career-best years, are long shots. "You don't get any presents when you're playing against the Top 8".

Its longest stay in a single venue was across 13 consecutive editions at Madison Square Garden from 1977 to 1989 but it has been held at London's O2 arena since 2009 - drawing more than 250,000 fans annually.

Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem, from a generation further below, are still developing. He has won four this year, including the Australian Open, in what has been a less consistently transcendent campaign. I just feel this is a great leverage and opportunity to promote tennis all around the world.

Fast forward to previous year and after cutting his season short in August after scans revealed a tear in one of his tendons, Nishikori was forced to ask himself the question that no top sports athlete in their prime ever was to contemplate - retirement. There were Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Marat Safin.

Since then Wayne Ferreira and Amanda Coetzer have reached Slam semi-finals but never a final, while Liezel Huber and Wesley Moodie have won major doubles titles.

Two recent defeats to Federer will be fresh in Nishikori's mind but he did compete well in their Shanghai and Paris matches so he certainly has what it takes to test the six-time champion.

"It's going to be interesting to see how he comes back but I'm confident it's not going to be a problem if he returns at 100%".
