World number one Djokovic comfortably saw off the fourth seed 6-2, 6-2, never looking remotely troubled as he targets a record-equalling sixth end-of-season title at London's O2 Arena. Zverev takes on Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final and will be hoping to receive a warm reception tomorrow to put the controversy to bed.
Twenty four hours after being booed for having the audacity to take down a tennis great, Alexander Zverev returned to topple another one as he stunned Novak Djokovic to win the ATP Finals title on Sunday.
"We have so many great players that are a little bit older now, that it's not easy to come through for the young generation", Zverev said after beating John Isner. Zverev downs Djokovic in ATP Finals.
"But I'm happy he won the big title because we have a really good and friendly relationship". I don't want to say I can't wait for the build-up.
However the Swiss was positive about his season and excited about returning to the court next year.
From that moment on, Djokovic looked completely unruffled as he comfortably held serve without facing a single break and broke Anderson again in game seven to win the first set 6-2 in just 39 minutes. "I played very well in the group stage against Sascha (Zverev) but I don't think he was close to his best".
A mammoth 26 shot rally set up another break point opportunity for Zverev in the first game of the second set and, although Djokovic managed to save it, Zverev won another long rally moments later with a brilliant forehand victor to go 1-0 up.Читайте также: Where the Yankees may turn next now that Paxton's in the fold
"The ball boy dropped the ball and it is the rules we have to stop the point". "It's something that doesn't bother me, you know, to work hard in the off-season", he said.
Often he has asked me about what it takes to win. In the second-set tiebreaker, he stopped play as a ball boy dropped a ball and moved to retrieve it in his line of sight.
In fact he has yet to make it past the quarter-finals of a grand slam, but the affable youngster, 6ft 6in tall with his long hair and gold chains, has a definite star quality - and now he can add the London crown to his three Masters titles.
There can not be many sights that worry Novak Djokovic more than Ivan Lendl sitting at the side of the court. You have to play your best game to even have a chance.
But the South African could only land 48 percent of first serves in the first set and Djokovic was made sure Anderson pay for it, breaking in the first game and repeating the feat before serving out for the set.
"I think it was the best match I've played so far this week - it came at the right time", Djokovic, who has been nearly unstoppable in the second half of the year, said.
Federer, who ends the season with four titles, won his 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open but despite suffering disappointing defeats at Wimbledon and the US Open, described 2018 as "uplifting".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
