US Open champion Stan Wawrinka meets Kei Nishikori in the opening game of the John McEnroe group on Monday at the World Tour Finals.After the Ivan Lendl group got underway on Sunday, it is the turn of the second group on Monday and with Andy Murray taking on Marin Cilic in the evening session, Wawrinka and Nishikori will look to start with a win in the first match of the day. John McEnroe Group Andy Murray (Great Britain) Stan Wawrinka (Switzerland) Kei Nishikori (Japan) Marin Cilic (Croatia) Wawrinka will start as favourite despite a run of indifferent form since he claimed the third Grand Slam of his career, beating Novak Djokovic to claim the US Open title in September. In fact it is that form which is likely to make world No 3 Wawrinka a dangerous competitor and the main rival to Djokovic and Andy Murray, whose consistency makes them the lead contenders for the title in London. Stan the danger man We profile the three-time Grand Slam champion and the ability to raise his game Wawrinka is rarely in top form when he has delivered his major success and his ability to motivate himself for the big tournaments is well known and underlined by three successive World Tour Finals semi-finals.He is also up to his career high in the world rankings and claimed four ATP titles this year, only Djokovic (seven) and Murray (eight) won more.The Swiss ace has the edge in matches with his Japanese opponent, winning four of their six encounters including a four-set semi-final victory at Flushing Meadow but Nishikori does not have to far to look for a win having beaten Wawrinka in the semi-final in Canada prior to the US Open. A look back at Kei Nishikoris highlights of 2016 which helped him reach the World Tour Finals for the third year running Nishikoris year has been another case of what might have been having reached five finals but only claiming one title, in Memphis.However, its been a year of huge consistency as he has made two Masters Series finals (losing to Novak Djokovic in Miami and Canada) as well as reaching two Grand Slam quarter-finals.Nishikori beat Murray at the US Open and he will be looking to emulate his debut in the World Tour Finals where he reached the last four in 2014. Nishikoris next step Is the Japanese ace ready to win big?

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Matt Dominguez took no offence when the Angels intentionally walked a .247-hitting catcher so they could pitch to him in the seventh inning of a tie game. After all, playing for the Houston Astros these days is filled with all types of indignities. On the very next pitch, Dominguez took a swing that thrilled his family and capped the Astros best week in a long while. Dominguez hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, and Houston won back-to-back series for the first time in nearly two months with a 7-5 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday. Dominguez tied his career high with four hits in his native Southern California, while L.J. Hoes had his first career homer among his three hits in the major league-worst Astros fourth win in six games. Dominguez homered after Angels reliever Juan Gutierrez (0-4) walked Carlos Corporan, and the Astros hung on to their seventh win over Los Angeles this season. "They just wanted a matchup, I think," said Dominguez, a San Fernando Valley native who left 15 tickets for family. "He hung the slider, and I got it good. Feels good. I guess they had confidence they could get me out more than they did Carlos. Thats how baseball is. No hard feelings or anything. Ill just go up and try to do what I can." Slowly, the young Astros are getting things done. They scored 20 runs while taking two of three games at the Big A, winning with offence after a pitching-dominated series earlier in the week in Oakland, where they also took two of three from the Athletics. "At some point, were going to start to get our breaks," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "Were swinging the bats real well, and were getting good starting pitching." Brett Oberholtzer (3-1) blew an early three-run lead, but pitched six effective innings during Houstons sixth win in seven games at Angel Stadium. He gave up seven hits and struck out four in his fourth major league start, even retiring nine of his final 10 batters after Hamiltons tying homer. Oberholtzer attributes the Astros recent success to "staying loose. I think were playing with a little swagger, a little confidence about ourselves." Thats in short supply for the Angels (55-68), who have lost 11 of 16 and 23 of 34 -- yet Houston (41-82) is still 14 games behind Los Angeles for fourth place in the AL West. Mike Trout had two hits for the Angels before leaving in the sixth inning with rightt hamstring tightness.dddddddddddd Josh Hamilton homered and tripled for Los Angeles to follow up his extra-inning homer Saturday night, while Mark Trumbo drove in three runs and hit his 28th homer late in the Angels sixth loss in eight games. "Its frustrating losing to anybody," said Hamilton, who delivered his 19th homer. "It doesnt matter who it is. If it was the Yankees in here today, or the Rangers, it would be just as frustrating. Its one of those things where youre playing a team with that kind of a record, but you dont want to relax or take anything for granted. Im not saying that were doing that, but some years, some teams have your number. Thats how it goes." Trout went 2 for 3 with a third-inning double, but left the game after flying out in the fifth. The Angels All-Star outfielder reached base for the 40th straight game, extending the majors longest current streak. "Its all right. Im just sore," said Trout, second in the AL at with a .333 average. "Its not like it popped or anything. It was just a little grabbing, so it shouldnt be too serious. ... Ill see how it is tomorrow. I came out just because I didnt want it to get worse. Its definitely frustrating when you cant be out there. For me as a speed guy, Ive got to take care of my legs." Houston boosted its lead to 7-3 in the eighth on Jose Altuves sacrifice fly. Trumbo trimmed the deficit with his two-run shot to left off Jordan Lyles, the Astros scheduled Monday starter, who pitched 2 1-3 innings of relief before leaving with two runners on in the ninth. Rookie Kevin Chapman got pinch-hitter Peter Bourjos to ground into a game-ending double play, earning his first career save. Jason Vargas recovered from an awful beginning to his first home start in two months to pitch into the sixth for the Angels, allowing seven hits -- all in the first three innings. The left-hander walked three and struck out three in his second start since returning from injury. Hoes homered in his 19th major league game, drilling a one-out shot in the first inning. NOTES: Lyles unexpectedly made his first relief appearance of the season. Porter said RHP Lucas Harrell will start the series opener at Texas on Monday night. ... Dominguez also had four hits July 31. ... Hamiltons triple was his first since May 21. ... Gutierrez, who made his major league debut with Houston in 2007, struck out four during his 1 2-3 innings.
