Djokovic was the former No. 1 ranked Men's Singles tennis player, before Nadal took the sport by storm. Not counting the ATP World Tour Finals, Nadal went 71-6 in 2013.

Nadal is chasing his first ATP World Tour Finals championship. Djokovic will be after his third as the defending champion claimed his second career championship title in 2012.
We know Nadal is human, but in this tournament, even against the best in the world, the Spaniard has cruised to victory. He only dropped one of his nine sets played. He went to a couple of tiebreakers against Stanislas Wawrinka, but he won both of those sets. Tomas Berdych broke his streak in the final round robin match, winning the second set in truly dominant fashion, 6-1, only to later lose the third set and the match.
Djokovic has managed to survive through the first rounds of the tournament. Djokovic looks dominant at times, but he struggles heavily in points throughout his matchup. He was not as unstoppable as Nadal, but Djokovic wound up winning every match this tournament. He was pushed to the brink numerous times, needing a third set to clinch the victory, but his Group B was a lot tougher than Nadal's Group A. Djokovic battled the likes of Roger Federer, Juan Martin del Potro and Richard Gasquet, all of whom took a set from the Serb.
