the nitto atp finals. nick parrott reports. this is a stage that roger federer has often dominated, and the six time champion is hungry for more. victory next sunday would be his hundredth career title. the form book suggested he would beat kei nishikori after defeating him twice in recent months, but the japanese showed he had learned from the experiences. and he was helped by federer‘s form going missing, to ta ke federer‘s form going missing, to take the first set on a tie—break. that saw the confidence of the swiss slump and nishikori's saw. he broke the world number three for a 11—2 lead in the first indoor victory over federer was within reach. in the end, it almost that easy as nishikori one in less than 1.5 hours. but fear not, federerfans. this is the fourth time he has lost
his opening match at the event, but in 2007 he still went on to win the title. i want to do well at every tournament. i think fans know that, tournament. i think fans know that, tournament directors know that, i know that, my team does it, so i don't think, per se, know that, my team does it, so i don't think, perse, i know that, my team does it, so i don't think, per se, i am know that, my team does it, so i don't think, perse, iam playing worse because of it. i think i have had that pressure not going out early most of my career. 0nce had that pressure not going out early most of my career. once i became world number one, anyways. and then once you have been a former world number one, you always have that for the rest of your career, for every competition.” that for the rest of your career, for every competition. i had to play with my idol and always it is a big challenge to play roger. so it was great to win today, and obviously the first match is not easy, i mean, those of us are playing a little bit out, this first set especially. but i think the second set i was playing better. in the earlier match, kevin anderson fulfilled his childhood dream by making his debut at the finals. it has got even better for
the south african with a straight sets victory over austria's thiem, and to cap a wonderful day he made ita and to cap a wonderful day he made it a special one for his wife as well. it is my wife's birthday today, so i don't know if you will humour me and sing happy birthday to her. are you guys ready? all right, one, two, three. # happy birthday to you. # happy birthday to you. # hgppy you. # happy birthday to you. # happy birthday dear kelsey. happy birthday to you. maybe just gave her flowers next time. monday's action at the nitto atp finals sees novak djokovic face john isner, but before that match, it is alexander zverev against marin cilic. zverev won three titles this year, and is the youngest of the eight finalists in london. here is the story of his year, as described by former us open finalist greg rusedski. the most wins on tour this year, so
thatis the most wins on tour this year, so that is impressive, but the expectation level for this youngster is always a lot. a third masters series in 21 years of age, there's very few players that have done that. i think for me that was his best performance of the season. this year was a little bit of a breakthrough for him, making his first quarterfinals of a major in paris. i love the backhand. the backhand is a thing of beauty. i mean, it is one of the best in the business. i think he's got to be aggressive, he's got to be positive. every match is like the finals. you have the best eight players in the world going head to head. if he goes on to win this event, you know,, as you say, that would be an incredible performance. you can get all the latest sports news at our website. that is bbc.com/sport. but from me, holly hamilton,
and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello. the week ahead will once again be a fairly mild one for this time of year, even if we start the week on a fairly fresh note for some. but it's a week that starts the way the weekend finished, with some fairly blustery showers around, particularly in the south and west. we've got low pressure with us, basically a zone of rising air helping to build those shower clouds. and this weather system across northern france will be close enough for the south—east and east anglia not only to produce some showers, but for a veil of cloud to stop the morning sunshine. the breeze is coming from the south and west, so it's southern and western counties of the country most likely to see showers for
the morning commute. around the irish sea coasts, we could see winds close to gale—force. those showers filtering up are parts of west wales, isle of man, into south—west scotland. much of northern ireland, much of north—east scotland start dry with sunshine. and it is the north—east of scotland most prone to frost in the morning. for most, it's going to be a frost—free week. through the day, showers in the west will push a bit further northwards and eastwards, given the strength of the breeze. but there'll be parts of the midlands, north—east england, northern scotland, northern ireland that will stay completely or almost completely dry throughout the day. temperatures 12—14 degrees. still a little bit higher than it should be for the time of year, and it will be one of the cooler days of the week. now, as we go into monday night and into tuesday, a few more showers will push eastwards. the wind switches around in direction to more of a westerly one into the morning. it will be a cool night. temperatures down into single figures. most will be frost free thanks to the breeze as we start tuesday. but the key for tuesday is this little bump in the isobars, bump in the pressure pattern, northwards. that's an indication we've got a ridge of high pressure. that puts a cap in the atmosphere and stops some of the showers from building. there'll be a few around in the west to begin with.
one or two may push eastwards, but for the most, most will have a dry day with temperatures similar to those on monday. but the breeze will ease down a little bit. finish the day with cloud increasing in northern ireland and western scotland, a damp night to come, here. and into wednesday, outbreaks of rain across northern western parts of the uk. into wednesday, outbreaks of rain across northern and western parts of the uk, most persistent west of scotland, cumbrian fells, and across gwynedd. to the east is a hazy day with sunshine, but across the board, hazy sunshine or rain. a very mild day for the time of year, and it's across some eastern parts of scotland, north—east england, and eastern northern ireland with temperatures around 16 or 17 degrees. and we stick with the mild theme as we go through into the end of the week. high pressure builds a little bit across continental europe, keeping weather fronts out to the west, keeping things dry, and keeping that southerly airflow. so the warmer air will largely remain with us, but as winds fall lighter later this week, we've got a greater risk of seeing mist and fog fall. bye for now. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america
