Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are going to lock horns in what is going to be one of the most fascinating matches of these Finals in London.
Roger and Novak were considered the obvious favorites of their group. Still, Dominic Thiem was in complete disagreement with that to beat them back to back and being the first to qualify for the semifinals. The unexpected consequence was that Roger and Novak will fight in their last match of the round-robin to be the second player to qualify for the final 4 in their group.
Why Roger can beat Novak. PREDICTION
Even if it is widely believed that Djokovic is the favorite to beat Roger also because the Swiss looked never dialed in this week, according to tennis pundit Annabel Croft the Maestro can still beat Novak to comment:
“I think we are going to get a few spicy moments. I think if we can get anything close to what we got in that Wimbledon final it will be extraordinary. I have learned over the years never to write Roger Federer off. Over the years I have seen him play not such great tennis at times and in the same tournament come out and play and produce a completely different level.
