Djokovic battles past Cilic, goes undefeated in ATP Finals round-robin play

039;I wasn't gonna get drunk yet but okay!': Zverev reveals 'wild' plans after ATP victory

Zverev, 21, clinched the biggest title of his career so far with a 6-4 6-3 win over Djokovic in the ATP Finals decider on Sunday.

"Obviously us young guys, we're coming through", he said.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest returners in the history of the game, it is his serving numbers that have been so striking during his run to the final in London.

"I won't let that get in my head, make me go insane, because it should be something I'm excited about and not something I should feel extra pressure". Let's not go there for now. Zverev has called the 20-time grand slam champion a "true inspiration", "the greatest player of all time" and "someone that I've looked up to my whole life" across several Instagram posts. The rising star got to the final by defeating Swiss great Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (7-5) on Saturday, reports Efe news.

Novak Djokovic has produced an awesome gesture for the man who's been driving him around London for the ATP Finals. After the two players held their serves for 4-all, Khachanov broke for the first time before bagging the first set 6-4. "Hopefully he (Zverev) can surpass me".

Victory against Djokovic at the O2 Arena would surely go down as his biggest triumph. Zverev stopped play as a ball rolled onto the court, slipping from a ball boy's grasp.

At 4-4 in the opener a couple of poor Djokovic forehands gave Zverev the chance to serve for the set and he sealed it thanks to three consecutive aces.

In addition, the over 9.5 game line for the first set is 5/6 with the Sportsbook, and perhaps this is a little more tempting.

Djokovic, who outclassed Zverev in the round robin, saw his service game disintegrate in the second set as Zverev pounced on a long Djokovic service game to break the Serbian again. Khachanov winning the Masters in Paris was a big thing.

"You deserved to win and well done", Djokovic told Zverev.

"Overall it was a phenomenal season that I have to be definitely very proud of", Djokovic said. A backhand victor on the run drifted past the helpless Djokovic and Zverev sunk to the ground in tears.

This breakthrough win meant he became just the fourth player to beat Federer in a semifinal and Djokovic in a final in the same tournament.

He started the year with a career-best 17 straight wins, winning in Melbourne and Rotterdam before losing to Juan Martin del Potro in the final at Indian Wells.

Then at 3-3, Isner got into some trouble after a double fault and a fine backhand pass from Zverev, but held on with two aces and a lovely backhand volley.

Federer said: "He apologised to me at the net".

The young boy sparked controversy during the second set of the semi-final at the ATP World Tour finals.

Having failed to take advantage of five championship points during the first-to-10 match tiebreaker, Bryan and Sock then had to save one against their French opponents before finally closing out victory.
