Federer: Big finish no real advantage

Tennis: Roger Federer dismissed suggestions he will go into next year with a psychological edge after finishing the season by retaining his ATP World Tour Finals title in London.

Federer's recent form was in stark contrast to the other members of tennis' big four.

Federer said: "It gives me a lot of confidence for next year. But, regardless of how it went here, I would still have been in a good state of mind for next year."
