Novak Djokovic makes no particular changes to his tennis in his first match at the 2021 ATP Finals in Turin. On the contrary. Casper Ruud, parallel to the first experience in his career among the top eight, basically resists only one set.
The Serbian champion, who recovers a break from a disadvantage and who also remedies a false start in the twelfth game, considerably raises the level of joy in the moment of need, spreads without particular difficulties and blocks with a 7-6 (5) 6-2 the success.
Success number thirty-nine at the Finals. In the evening the challenge between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev (who will face each other for the eighth time in the ATP Tour) could already define the hierarchies of the Green Group.
We recall that in the Rec Group, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev won their first matches: they are basically already i the semifinal, especially after Matteo Berrettini's injury.
