London: Novak Djokovic has been drawn in the same group with Roger Federer at the season-ending ATP Tour Finals. Dominic Thiem and Matteo Berrettini complete the line-up in group Bjorn Borg.

Rafael Nadal, who will be bidding to clinch year-end No. 1 in the ATP Rankings for the fifth time, is in the other group alongside Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and the defending champion Alexander Zverev in group Andre Agassi.

Eight different countries are represented in the elite eight-man singles field for the fourth consecutive year, with Group Bjorn Borg matches beginning on Sunday, 10 November. Group Andre Agassi matches are scheduled to begin on Monday, 11 November.

Roberto Bautista Agut and Gael Monfils, the 2016 qualifier, are first and second alternates respectively in the singles field.

Nadal declared himself fit for the finals on Tuesday after he pulled out of last week's Paris Masters semi-finals -- a scan revealed a "slight strain to the left abdominal".

Nadal had still replaced Djokovic -- who won the Paris Masters -- as world number one but the Serbian can reclaim it.

Djokovic will take top spot if he wins two group-stage matches and reaches the final and if the 33-year-old Spaniard -- who has yet to win the finals -- does not play or fails to win a round-robin match.

Djokovic will also finish the year as number one if he wins the tournament and Nadal does not reach the semi-finals.

Here is what the groups look like:

Group Andre Agassi -

[1] Rafael Nadal (ESP)

[4] Daniil Medvedev (RUS)

[6] Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE)

[7] Alexander Zverev (GER)

Group Bjorn Borg -

[2] Novak Djokovic (SRB)

[3] Roger Federer (SUI)

[5] Dominic Thiem (AUT)

[8] Matteo Berrettini (ITA)
