Novak Djokovic has booked his spot in the last four of the ATP Tour Finals, after defeating Germanyís Alexander Zverev 6-3, 7-6.
Bouncing back from a straight-set loss to Daniil Medvedev on Wednesday, Djokovic broke the German early in the opening set and performed well on his serves to clinch the set with a backhand, down the line.
Zverev posed more threats in the second and was 2 - love up in the tie-breaker, but the Serbian ace won 5 of the next 6 points to eventually wrap up the match, after 1 hour and 38 minutes. He will now face Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals.
