Ber­ret­tini no match for Djokovic at ATP Fi­nals

The National - News - - SPORT -

No­vak Djokovic eased to a 6-2, 6-1 vic­tory against Mat­teo Ber­ret­tini in his ATP Fi­nals opener yes­ter­day as he tar­gets a record­e­qualling sixth year-end No 1 rank­ing. Djokovic, who won the Aus­tralian Open and Wim­ble­don this sea­son, must reach the fi­nal in Lon­don to stand any chance of dis­lodg­ing Rafael Nadal at the top but there are ma­jor ques­tions over the Spa­niard’s fit­ness. The sec­ond seed saw off the chal­lenge of Ber­ret­tini in just 62 min­utes, con­vert­ing five of seven break points and out-serv­ing his 23-yearold op­po­nent. The other two mem­bers of the Bjorn Borg group are Fed­erer and Do­minic Thiem of Aus­tria, who were due to meet later last night. Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Ste­fanos Tsit­si­pas and Zverev are in the An­dre Agassi group.
