World No 1 Rafael Nadal will be aiming to win his maiden ATP World Tour Finals title when he heads to London this week.

The 13-time Grand Slam champion has been drawn in Group A alongside David Ferrer, Tomas Berdych and first-time qualifier Stanislas Wawrinka.

He has an immediate chance to erase a frustrating loss as he starts the Tour Finals against fellow Spaniard Ferrer, who defeated him in the Paris Masters semi-finals on Saturday.

Nadal has never won the Tour Finals, losing his only final against Roger Federer in 2010, but he will be a strong contender this year after winning the French and US Open titles.

"There is one tournament remaining so I will try to play with the best attitude I can," the 27-year-old Mallorcan said.

"I know at the end of the season a lot of times my body and mind find it tougher. I arrived in Paris a bit more tired, but I'm going to try to play better in London."

Novak Djokovic, Federer, Juan Martin del Potro and Richard Gasquet are drawn together in Group A.

The winner of each group will face the runner-up from the other section in the semi-finals.
