The 21-time Grand Slam champion made it to the final by defeating American Taylor Fritz 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (8/6). The world number eight punished Fritz for his errors and was efficient on his serve. He delivered in crucial moments of the game, especially a stunning forehand winner that ended the first-set tiebreak. Novak Djokovic was in danger of losing the second set, going down 4-5, but gained a break point chance after Fritz swung a wayward backhand into the net. That error was costly for the American as the Serb took three of the next four games to emerge victorious and secure a spot in the final. The five-time ATP Tour Finals champion went undefeated in three group games against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev to barge into the last four.
Casper Ruud, who made it to the finals of the French and US Opens this year. Improved on his ATP Tour Finals semifinal stint last year as he reached this year’s final with a victory over Andrey Rublev 6-2, 6-4 in the final four. The Norwegian weathered the early charge of the Russian and strung up eight consecutive games. To take a commanding 4-0 lead in the second set. Ruud, who only coughed up eight errors during the match, took advantage of Rublev’s 23 unforced errors to secure the opportunity to meet Djokovic in the final. The world number four was 2-1 in group games, winning over Felix Auger-Aliassime and Fritz. His only blip was against Rafael Nadal 5-7, 5-7.
