Rafael Nadal is on the verge of
finishing the year as the world No 1
after opening his ATP World Tour
Finals campaign with a 6-3, 6-2 win
over David Ferrer today.
Nadal arrived at London s O2 Arena
still smarting from a surprise loss
against fellow-Spaniard Ferrer in the
semi-finals of the Paris Masters on
Saturday, but he was quick to avenge
that defeat with an emphatic victory in

" ey are never easy games against
David Ferrer, the No 3 in the world. He
is great and having an amazing career,"
"He played a lot better than me in
Paris last week but today I played a little
bit better than him and it s important
for my confidence to start with a victory
If Nadal does end up in top spot, it
will complete what the 13-time Grand
Slam champion regards as the most
satisfying year of his illustrious career.
When Nadal returned in February
after a seven-month battle to recover
from tendinitis in his knee, his ranking
had dropped to No 5 in the world --- his
lowest position since 2005 --- and he
was worried if he would ever recapture
his top form.
But he showed no signs of having
lost a step as he stormed to his eighth
French Open title and then won the US
Open, as well as claiming eight other
After Nadal broke Ferrer in the
opening game of the match, the world
No 3 hit back with an immediate break
of his own.
However, that was the last time the
31-year-old really troubled Nadal, who
was gifted another break for a 4-2 lead
thanks to a pair of careless forehands
from the out-of-sorts Ferrer, who made
33 unforced errors in total.
Nadal continued to blitz Ferrer with
his booming backhands and broke
again to take the set.
Ferrer was looking increasingly
unsettled by Nadal s barrage and he
cracked again in the second game of
the second set before another break
for a 4-0 lead which effectively sealed
Nadal s win.
Nadal had claimed he was not
concerned about finishing top of
the rankings, but his fist-pumping

Controversial Newcastle NRL signing
Russell Packer says he is confident of
winning a premiership at the Knights
under supercoach Wayne Bennett in the
next few years.
Former Warriors prop Packer, who
gained widespread notoriety when he
urinated on the field at the start of a
match against Brisbane in June, joined
the Knights on a four-year deal beginning
in 2014 and said his desire for a change
of environment prompted the move.
Newcastle were the surprise packets
of the finals this year, enjoying back-
to-back upset wins over Canterbury
and Melbourne before being thumped
40-14 by eventual premiers the Sydney
Roosters in their preliminary final.
e 24-year-old Packer, nicknamed
Package , believes the club will build on
that effort in years to come.
"It s a good opportunity for myself to
come over here and to get out of my
comfort zone," Packer told the Knights
"I ve been at my old club since I was
17. It was about time to move on and
try something new. We re all here trying
to get a premiership. It d be pretty good
if we could achieve that in the next few
e 112kg, 188cm Packer played two
tests for New Zealand in 2011 but his
career had stalled somewhat since.
He will be looking to follow in the
footsteps of fellow NRL badboys Willie
Mason and Joey Leilua who have turned
their careers around under Bennett at
Packer said he was looking forward to
proving himself at the Knights who start
pre-season training next week.
"Mentally, I m ready. I don t know about
physically. I ll give it a go, rip in and see
how I look next year," he said.
e Warriors were hit with a $15,000
fine by the NRL for the June incident
at Suncorp Stadium, for which Packer,
a veteran of 108 first-grade games for the
Warriors since 2008, later apologised.

Novak Djokovic ground down Roger
Federer 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-2 in his opening
match at the ATP World Tour Finals
today to preserve his slim hopes of
ending the year on top of the rankings.
Serbian Djokovic, who beat Federer in
last year s final, must win at least two of
his group B matches to have any chance
of toppling Rafael Nadal who opened
his group A challenge with an easy
victory over David Ferrer earlier in the
World No 7 Federer, bidding for a
seventh title at the year-ender, fired
a forehand wide to give Djokovic the
opening set after 37 minutes of an
eagerly-awaited contest in front of a
sell-out crowd at the 02 Arena.
e 17-times grand-slam champion
produced some vintage play in the
second set but squandered a set point at
5-4 as the crowd willed the 32-year-old
to go the distance.

dominated the tie-break against an
opponent looking weary under the
Just when Federer appeared to have
given himself a fighting chance of an
increasingly rare victory over one of the
big guns, however, Djokovic slammed
the door in his face.

up a two-game lead he never looked like
Another break condemned Federer to
his first opening-match defeat at the
Tour Finals since 2008 when he failed
to survive the group stage and defeat by
Frenchman Richard Gasquet on Friday
would leave him staring at a similar fate.
Djokovic, whose winning now spans
18 matches since he lost to Nadal in
the US Open final, joins Argentine Juan
Martin del Potro, whom he plays on
Friday, at the top of the group.
