The ATP Finals is one of the wealthiest tournaments on the tour in terms of prize money and on a par with the Grand Slams.
If his first match at the ATP World Tour Finals is any indication, this could be a rough week for Federer as he seeks not only the championship here, but his 100th career title.
Nishikori double-faulted to hand Federer the first break of the match at the start of the second set but Federer gifted back the advantage in the next game when he again had words with the chair umpire after taking too long to challenge a call.
Nishikori's stunning win stopped Federer's win streak in opening matches at the ATP Finals at 15 consecutive wins, and the Japanese star was happy to finally overcome the Swiss maestro.

Anderson fired down an ace to save a second set point and, despite failing to convert a third match point, he would not be denied. He committed 34 unforced errors and he was tetchy, impatient and, quite simply, frustrated.
"Then I started to feel better in the second set".
"I thought 'What was his argument, why the warning?"
As Federer sought the old magic-which comes in bits and pieces these days because the body cannot achieve what the mind believes it can at age 37-Djokovic played the game he knows best, one of negligible errors.
The first match of the Finals will take place between Anderson and Thiem before Federer locks horns with Nishikori later at night. I think out of the taller guys, he's playing outstanding from the baseline. It's something that's very important to me.
