On Sunday at 9 a.m. ET, RDS2 will kick off the network’s live coverage of all men’s singles matches in the 2014 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. Held at the O2 Arena in London, the tournament features eight of this year’s top men’s tennis players.

Milos Raonic (CAN)

Group B

Having earned his place in the ATP World Tour Finals thanks to a strong showing at the Paris Masters last week, Canada’s Milos Raonic has his work cut out for him, having been drawn in a tough group including Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori—ranked second, fifth and sixth in the world, respectively. 

Spain’s Rafael Nadal, ranked third in the world, was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to various health issues.
