This is perhaps the match that everyone was waiting for ever since the Wimbledon final took place, some four months back. Nearly everybody had been aching for a rematch between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic and it will finally happen at the ATP Finals tonight. After suffering a loss at the hands of Dominic Thiem, both players will give it their all in their 49th meeting on the court.
While the 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer succumbed to the Austrian in his opening match on Sunday, it was Djokovic who suffered a similar fate on Tuesday. Those bitter losses aside, both Federer and Djokovic have vanquished the hopes of Italian debutant Matteo Berrettini. Scheduled to play against each other for a spot in the semi-finals, Djokovic is eyeing a record-equalling sixth title in London to match Federer's record. A loss at this stage would dash all those hopes.
Most notably, Federer's last victory against Djokovic took place four years back when he took down the Serb in the group stages of the tournament. After that win, Djokovic has thoroughly dominated their rivalry.
The agile Serb leads their head-to-head record at 26-22. However, Federer came dangerously close to winning Wimbledon this year and Djokovic was the reason behind his heartbreak. If not for anything else, Federer will give his all to try and avenge the gut-wrenching loss. A high-octane three-set blockbuster can be expected when they take the court on Thursday night for a place in the semi-finals.
