After the victory against Alexander Zverev at the ATP Finals 2020, in completely different circumstances, the Russian Daniil Medvedev also beat Novak Djokovic.
In Group Tokyo 1970 Djokovic will now have to win the play-off with Alexander Zverev.
The number five of the group, who plays an extremely orderly game and who wins the vast majority of prolonged exchanges, breaks the balance in the heart of the opening fraction and breaks off in the second with a partial 3-0.
Djokovic, foul and without a precise tactical plan, does not find enough good weapons to get back on track. In the 6-3 6-3 final that qualifies for the semifinals there are all the hows and all the whys. From the defeat with Daniil Medvedev to the victory with Diego Schwartzman.
Alexander Zverev does not make major improvements to the London project, but at least remains clinging to second place in Group Tokyo 1970 which will be played with the world number one. Below the highlights of the two matches.
