Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic beats Alexander Zverev: ATP Tour Finals – live!

There was also a rare sight at the beginning of the game as Zverev requested a video review after Lahyani ruled that he had not reached a Djokovic drop shot in time.

He executed another very nice backhand volley at 30-15, then snatched the second break point with a big unreturned serve down the T. Djokovic is under plenty of pressure here.

After a couple of sloppy errors from Zverev to fall down 0-30, Djokovic nailed a brilliant backhand crosscourt passing shot that kissed the line.

As Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev face each other this afternoon, the winner will seal the final spot against Dominic Thiem and the loser will go home.

He struggled to pierce the Russian’s defence and he did not have the patience to ride out some of the longer rallies, often bailing out of points with drop shots or overhit groundstrokes.

Firstly, between recent encounters with Medvedev, Pablo Carreno Busta and Rafael Nadal, there is certainly increasing evidence that he does not quite have the patience of old against players who can make things extremely physical.
