Novak Djokovic is having a complicated week in London where he is battling for both winning the ATP Finals and get back his world no.1 rank.
However, after a fantastic start against Matteo Berrettini that he defeated in straight sets 6-2 6-1, the Serbian sensation was stunned in the second match by an inspired Dominic Thiem that won an epic 3-setter. The result is that Nole will clash against Roger Federer in his last match of the round-robin with 1 very straight outcome: the winner gets to the semifinal, the loser goes home.
If Novak loses against Federer, he will definitely miss the chances to end the season at the top of the rankings. This would be a blow for Novak that aims at breaking Roger’s famous record of being 310 weeks as world no.1.
