World number one Rafael Nadal was drawn alongside Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

The Spaniard is set to compete at the O2 Arena despite pulling out midway through the Paris Masters with a knee injury last week.

Meanwhile, second seed Roger Federer will play against Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and Jack Sock in the round-robin phase.

The top two from each group – named after Pete Sampras and Boris Becker – progress to the semi-finals.

In the doubles, Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares were drawn alongside Bob and Mike Bryan.

The draw was delayed by over an hour after Becker, scheduled to help with proceedings, got stuck in traffic.

The tournament starts on November 12.

Andy Murray lifted the trophy in 2016, cementing his place as world No.1, but will not defend his title after ending his season prior to the US Open.
