The round robins of the 2020 ATP Finals are over. In Group Tokyo 2020, Novak Djokovic had to win to qualify for the semifinals, and he did. As in the vast majority of cases, one would say. The Serb renounced the playoffs during the playoff with Alexander Zverev, who had won the most gorgeous previous match on the blue of the O2 Arena, but at least avoided the hassle of the third set.
With a 6-3 7-6 (4) that builds in just over ninety minutes, the number one of the big group reaches the semifinal table for the ninth time in his career and is projected on Roger Federer’s record, now two wins away. Waiting for him will be Dominic Thiem, who has probably obtained the status of favorite after the group thanks to the blow against Rafa Nadal.
In the other match, Daniil Medvedev defeated the Argentinian Diego Schwartzman in two sets 6-3 6-3. Below the match-point o the Serb and an amazing response of the Russian.
