Nitto ATP Finals 2019, Roger Federer vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Semifinals: Where to watch, TV Schedule, Live Stream details and more
Roger Federer exacted his revenge on Novak Djokovic when he took to the court to clash with the Serb in the last round robin stage match at the ATP Finals 2019. The painful history of not having defeated the agile 32-year-old in their past four meetings clawed at the Swiss and finally, he triumphed in their 49th face-off. In what was a classic Roger Federer match, the 103-time tour-level-titlist wrapped up the proceedings in a comprehensive 6-4, 6-3 display.
Federer unleashed a clinical game and fired aces and jaw-dropping winners throughout the match. Djokovic seemed to struggle and on several occasions, the Serb gave up, making the job easier for the 20-time Major winner. With this loss, Djokovic's hopes of ending the year as the World No. 1 for a record sixth time were over. Federer came through and entered the ATP Finals semi-finals for a staggering 16th time.
Chasing a seventh title at the ATP Finals, Roger Federer will have to tackle the threat of Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek sensation, who is making his London debut this year, has been in brilliant form at this tournament.
He did not drop a single set in his matches against Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev. Against Rafael Nadal, Tsitsipas bagged the first set after things went south for him and Nadal took home the match in a gritty affair that lasted 2 hours 52 minutes.
Federer leads the head-to-head record at 2-1 and will come in with theconfidence after having defeated him recently in the Basel semi-finals. Should Federer maintain this clinical form, he will well be on his way to an 11th ATP Finals final soon.
