Novak Djokovic's incredible gesture for chauffeur at ATP Finals

Novak Djokovic's incredible gesture for chauffeur at ATP Finals

Novak Djokovic will target a record-equalling sixth ATP Finals title when he takes on Alexander Zverev in Sunday's showpiece, live on Sky Sports.

Already considered amongst the world's most highly thought of young players, Alexander Zverev has only made it as far as the quarter-final stages in any of the major events thus far; achieving this feat at the 2018 French Open.

Zverev, coached by Ivan Lendl, parried a question about how he felt about being viewed by many as leading the future of tennis. "I think you need to be a little bit more respectful, they are the rules". "The ball boy dropped a ball and..."

Federer, who will have to wait until next year for his 100th career title, was briefly rattled in his post-match news conference when asked if the incident had affected him.

An increasingly ragged Djokovic then dropped his opening two service games of the second set, either side of breaking Zverev for the first time. "This trophy means a lot, everything, to all the players". "I wasn't gonna get drunk just yet but, okay, I mean, it's nice!".

With Russian Karen Khachanov, who beat Djokovic to win the Paris Masters, and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas also making huge strides, including a win over Djokovic, Zverev believes the new generation are starting to make inroads.

To come back after a hard start to the year and an injury to win Wimbledon and the US Open this year, and become the dominant player in the second half of the year, speaks volumes for his mentality and love for the game.

6ix9ine Faces Life in Prison
In a 2015 case in NY , 6ix9ine was sentenced to probation for his involvement in a sexually explicit video of a 13-year-old girl. Last night (Nov 18), 6ix9ine as well as his ex-manager Shottie , got picked up by ATF agents in New York City.

But his 21-year-old opponent showed no fear at a packed O2 Arena, trading heavy blows with his illustrious opponent from the back of the court and outlasting him in long rallies to win 6-4, 6-3.

"I wasn't happy that he beat me, but I was happy for the victory that he had because I'm quite good friends with him". I knew I had to take care of my service games, because he's serving really well.

Djokovic moved effortlessly around the court, and while Anderson has clearly played better matches over the year, it's churlish to castigate him for a sub-standard percentage of first serves, if only because Djokovic was as adept at returning the first serve as he was the second.

The Serbian world number one looked unbeatable heading into Sunday's final, winning all four of his matches in London in straight sets and not dropping serve once. "You try your best". "Hopefully I can keep that going". Today wasn't a great day for us but if we put things into perspective it was an fantastic year, an incredible comeback'. "It seems like he's definitely right back playing some of the best tennis of his career". Continuing the theme in a tournament where we've picked our spots with decent success, don't go too heavy with your staking here. "I hope I'll be able to do that tomorrow". I didn't feel like I'd done anything wrong.

"I want to thank my team for a great season".

"I was very emotional afterwards".

I was impressed with how he started the match, obviously he was the underdog, he lost in straight sets to Novak a couple of days ago, and he didn't blink.
