Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic aiming to liven up underwhelming ATP Finals

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic aiming to liven up underwhelming ATP Finals

"That's the issue. But I've said it before", Zverev, whose 55 match wins this year is more than any other player, told reporters.

He has lost just two matches since the start of July, winning Wimbledon and the US Open along the way and emerging once more as the man to beat as he attempts to pull level with Federer on six ATP Finals titles.

Isner, whose hopes of reaching the semi-finals required a straight-sets win and a Djokovic victory over Cilic, netted a forehand to drop the set and there was only ever likely to be one outcome after that.

Djokovic, who beat Isner in his opening group-stage match, has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance in the second half of 2018 and lifting the trophy on the banks of the River Thames would be the flawless way to finish his year.

He is some way short of the complete article - which Lendl might remind him from time to time - but he brings energy, attitude and flair to the court, and that is gold dust for a sport that can not rely on the magic of 37-year-old Federer or 32-year-old Nadal - who is not at this tournament - for many more years.

"I am going to enjoy some quality time with my family and then get ready for the last game in the group".

Croatian No. 5 seed Cilic now faces an uphill task to qualify from the group with two matches left to play.

A second tiebreak arrived and just as in the day's first shootout, it was Zverev who jumped into a lead against an edgy Cilic who double-faulted at 1-4.

Zverev is emerging as one of the Tour's brightest young stars after climbing to fifth in the world.

If Zverev survives that examination, he most likely will have to go through it again against the five-time champion Djokovic in the final.

The second set went with serve until the 7th game when Cilic broke Zverev, only for Zverev to break directly back and he was close to a decisive break when 30-40 up in the 10th game, only for Cilic to show real guts to save the match-point with an ace before serving out to make it 5-5.

The high-quality encounter reached a crescendo when Djokovic pummelled Zverev into submission in the fourth game of the second set. Outside of Novak Djokovic, Anderson has been the best player here. I started to swing through the ball. "I had three breaks of serve of John which is sometimes mission impossible, but I managed to be at the right place at the right time". The last two matches for him against (Marin) Cilic and me could have gone either way.
