Federer’s record tied
The impeccable Djokovic takes the sixth title of the ATP Finals
Delivering a rock-solid performance in the final of the ATP Finals, Novak Djokovic (ATP 8) defeated Casper Ruud (ATP 4) in straight sets to win the world tennis title for the sixth time.
Clenched fist: Novak Djokovic wins ATP Finals.
The signs of victory and Djokovic’s sixth ATP Finals title increase enormously after the first set (7: 5). Only in two of the last 36 games has the Serb lost a game after winning the opening set. And his opponent Casper Ruud has already lost in two grand finals (French Open, US Open) this year.
Djokovic wins the Big Points
Ruud’s only hope: Djokovic’s mood. The Serb sort of swooned in the first half, as he did in the group match against Daniil Medvedev. But if the Serb wins the sentence himself in this state, what will stop him?
The answer is easy to find: nothing. Novak Djokovic also plays too well in the second. Even the opponent has to acknowledge that. Ruud applauds after a crazy move in the direction of the Serb, who only gives up five points after the first serve until 2:5.
Ranking im skipped
A few minutes later, Ruud has to congratulate Djokovic for the second time. This time online. The Serbian wins the second set 6:3 and with it the season-ending tournament in Turin. He has thus won six ATP Finals, the same number as Roger Federer. In addition to the tournament victory and the record prize money (4 million euros), Djokovic will also be number 5 in the world from Monday. (pair)
