The official Twitter handle of ATP World Tour posted videos and pictures of the tennis stars on their journey, which quickly went viral on the social media platform. He won two slams and got back to the apex position.
"I think I've taken the towel once or twice this year, once in Acapulco and once in Washington when it was like 120 degrees and when it was 150 per cent humidity".
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.
Anderson will make his debut in London following another strong season, which included a second grand slam final appearance at Wimbledon, where Djokovic outclassed him in the decider.
Federer will have been buoyed by his battling performance against Djokovic in the semi-final of the Paris Masters last week but he still lost the match - his fourth consecutive defeat against Djokovic, with the Serb now leading their head-to-head 25-22.
"It is fantastic to be here, I've worked hard and wanted to get here for so long", said Anderson, who is the first South African in 23 years to compete at the season-ending championships.

The event is for the top eight players and with Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro also withdrawing it has left two spaces which Japan's Kei Nishikori and American John Isner have filled. It's a very cool way to make an entrance. The top two in each group progress to the knockout semifinals. Fans can continue relishing the rivalry among the three men who could each lay claim for being the greatest of all time. After scooping the Wimbledon title, Djokovic has won the Cincinnati Masters, US Open, Shanghai Masters and Paris Masters, making him the hot favourite to win the ATP Finals title.
Kevin Anderson overpowered Dominic Thiem 6-3, 7-6 (12/10) to win his ATP Finals opener on Sunday as Roger Federer prepared to launch his bid for the 100th title of his storied career.
While Alexander Zverev, Marin Čilić and Dominic Thiem, the other participants in London, will score those odd wins over these champions, they still don't have the mental strength to consistently rule the world of tennis.
