Join us while we analyze Monday's action at ATP World Tour Finals. The Ilie Nastase Group will get underway and we've selected the best tennis pick for you to play on.

Andy Murray (2) vs David Ferrer (7)
This will be a very unusual week for Andy Murray, he has been practicing on a different surface and his main goal is to end this tournament in good physical conditions to play Davis Cup final.

As we mentioned in our ATP London preview, Murray said that he’s not expecting to play great tennis this week and that the first matches should be even harder for him. Andy also said that the change of surface might affect his back and if he feels some sort of pain, he should retire from the competition.

David Ferrer is the lowest ranked player on this group and his chances to qualify for next stage are quite low, however David is a tremendous competitor and he won’t go down without a fight.

Ferrer’s terrific footwork is very important on Indoor Hard Court and this year, the Spaniard has been playing at great level on these game conditions. After winning two titles at Kuala Lumpur and Vienna, Ferrer was only defeated in Paris semifinals against Murray. David’s ability to return to serve is extremely important on these courts and the Spaniard won 31.1% of returning games this year on Indoor.

Ferrer has always been a tough match-up for Murray with the Spaniard winning 6 of their previous 17 matches.

The movement on Clay has nothing to do with the movement on Indoor Hard Court and Murray might struggle in longer rallies against such a solid player as Ferrer. The British, priced as moderate favorite for this match, might be able to get the win at the end but David should win at least one set.

The game spread on Ferrer is at +4 and is quite unlikely that he covers this line if he loses in straight sets. The +1.5 Set Handicap tennis odds on Ferrer are at -114 at Bookmaker and our suggestion to add this bet to your tennis picks.
