Eight of the best players on the planet will showcase their skills at the ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 from November 13-20. From thumping forehands to blistering backhands and miraculous returns, fans can expect to see some thrilling tennis.Here, we pick out the trademark shots to look out for from each of the title hopefuls… Stan Wawrinka: Backhand Wawrinka has arguably the best backhand in the sport and unleashes it with not only ferocious power but also pinpoint accuracy.It is different to his rivals backhands, largely because he adopts an open stance side on and drills directly into the ball, which means it carries little top spin and arrives at his opponents far earlier and flatter than they are used to.Milos Raonic: Serve Raonic has one of the fastest and most unpredictable serves in tennis. Following an unusually high ball toss, he holds his racket face on, as opposed to the side-on style adopted by other players, which generates more power and makes it difficult for opponents to anticipate which direction the ball will travel in.Raonic is the owner of the sixth-fastest serve in history, a 250kmh rocket at the 2012 Rogers Cup.Andy Murray: Serve return Murray is a master of all tennis trades, but if you had to pick out one single shot that is narrowly better than the others, it is tough to look past his serve return.His ability to read a serve, his blink-of-an-eye reaction times and his speed across the baseline mean only the very best deliveries evade him.He knows that as long as he gets the ball back over the net, he is good enough in other areas of the game to seize back the initiative in the rally and win the point.Marin Cilic: Forehand Cilic adopts an off forehand technique to his forehand to generate more power and consequently hits harder and flatter than just about anyone else on tour.His 2014 US Open win was built on this exceptional shot, which he sends the ball over the net at angles and speed few other players can conjure.It is especially lethal on hard and fast courts, so the fast O2 surface should suit him perfectly.Gael Monfils: Flair shot Monfils is tennis showman and while his trademark exhibition shots may not always win him points and matches, they never fail to entertain.He is prepared to try shots that other players wouldnt even consider, be they hot dogs, pirouettes or flying smashes.Novak Djokovic: Defensive shot Djokovic is another all-rounder who excels in every discipline, but his greatest weapon is often his defensive play and, in particular, his remarkable stretch shot.While most players take three or four steps to reach a deep ball, Djokovic needs just two huge strides and then uses his remarkable elasticity to stretch and return it with a forehand or backhand slice.Kei Nishikori: Jumping forehand Although jumping forehands are common throughout tennis, Nishikori has to rely on it more than most thanks to the fact that, at 5ft 10in, he is almost always shorter than his opponent.Lifting feet off the ground can compromise the form of a shot, but Nishikori unleashes it without sacrificing speed or accuracy.Dominic Thiem: Backhand Thiems aggressive single-handed backhand was a sight to behold for the first six months of this season. It has changed little from his days playing tennis as a child and is one of the most natural strokes in the sport.He tends to glide at the ball, but still generates enough power capable of unerring accuracy. Thiems forehand is not as noteworthy in terms of style but is just as potent.I think the single handed backhand is a beautiful shot, the young Austrian said during a press conference. Im happy there are some young guys that play with it because it would be a shame if it dies.Watch every day of the ATP World Tour Finals, from November 13-20, live on Sky Sports. Full schedule here.

Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Max Kepler and the last-place Minnesota Twins are starting to have some fun.Theyre winning games, including three in a row against the American Leagues top team.Kepler drove in three runs with a homer and a short sacrifice fly, Tyler Duffey matched a career high with nine strikeouts and the Twins won 10-1 Thursday night in the opener of a four-game set at Texas after finishing their series at home last weekend with two straight over the Rangers.Its awesome. Its everything we ask for in a team, Kepler said. Everybodys picking each other up. No ones trying to do too much. Guys are getting on and keeping the line moving.The Twins (30-55) have won five of their last six overall.Minnesota led for good after Eduardo Nunez and Joe Mauer started the game with consecutive hits off Chi Chi Gonzalez (0-2) and both scored. Kurt Suzuki led off the second with his fifth homer, and it was 4-0 after Brian Dozier snapped an 0-for-13 slump with an RBI single later in the inning.That was a good win. It wasnt pretty early. We left men on base, but we were able to score a little bit, manager Paul Molitor said. Offensively, after four early, it didnt feel comfortable. I thought Maxs home run to extend that was good even though it was late. Then we were able to get the big inning.Keplers seventh homer of the season was a two-run shot that ignited a five-run eighth, putting the Twins up 9-0.Duffey (5-6) retired the last nine batters he faced. The right-hander limited Texas to two hits over six innings, but walked four and hit two batters.The Rangers didnt score until Rougned Odor had a one-out triple in the ninth, their first base runner since the fourth, and came home when Elvis Andrus singled.Keplers sac fly was a popup to shallow center field in the first caught by lunging shortstop Andrus. That sent Nunez home with the first run before Robbie Grossmans RBI single.Even with seven losses in nine games, the Rangers (53-34) still have the ALs best record and a 6 1/2-game lead over Houston in the AL West.For the first time in team history, Texas has gone six consecutive games without its starting pitcher finishing at least five innings.Gonzalez made it only 4 2/3 innings, throwingg 124 pitches in the longest outing by a Rangers starter in that stretch that started when the young right-hander got only two outs at Minnesota last Saturday.ddddddddddddHe allowed nine hits and walked five.Bottom line, weve got to be better, we have to be better, manager Jeff Banister said. Weve been really good in some stretches, we talk about, it all starts with starting pitching. ... We cant continue to cover four or five innings in the bullpen every single night.STRANDED RUNNERSWhile Molitor wasnt sure if the Twins had scored 10 or 11 runs, he knew how many runners they left on base. I do know we left 15, he said. I always look at that.SHORT HOPSKepler has six homers in his last 17 games. ... Every Minnesota starter had a hit. The last Twin to get a hit was No. 9 batter Byron Buxton with an RBI single in the eighth. ... The Rangers failed to homer for the first time in 18 games. ... OF Jared Hoying pitched the ninth for Texas, giving up solo homer to pinch-hitter Kennys Vargas.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: Molitor said RHP Phil Hughes indicated in an e-mail Thursday that his surgery Wednesday went well. Hughes had a rib removed to help relieve thoracic outlet syndrome.Rangers: Yu Darvish threw a 32-pitch bullpen session. The Rangers will see how he feels Friday before determining if the right-hander will make his next rehab start Saturday or Sunday for Double-A Frisco. ... 1B Mitch Moreland was out of the starting lineup for the fifth consecutive day because of a mild strain in his right calf. He is expected to play Friday.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5) goes for third consecutive victory. He has gone at least six innings in each of his last four starts, including last Sunday at home to beat Texas.Rangers: All-Star LHP Cole Hamels (9-2, 2.93 ERA) makes his second consecutive start against the Twins, who had five runs and 10 hits off him in four innings Sunday at Minnesota -- his shortest start since being acquired by the Rangers last July. He still has a chance to become the first Texas pitcher in four seasons to get 10 wins by the All-Star break.
