Rafael Nadal managed to get a pass for the semi-finals of the ATP Finals 2020. In the challenge with Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Spaniard remedied a missed pass in the tenth game of the second set and restored the hierarchy in the third set.
The 6-4 4-6 6-2 final matured after just over two hours was in some way emblematic. Nadal made it past the round robins cut at the Finals for the sixth time in his career, the first time since 2015, and sits above all on Daniil Medvedev's side.
Dominic Thiem was uninfluentially defeated by Andrey Rublev, 6-2 7-5, in just over seventy minutes. Thiem postponed the appointment with his 300th career victory in the ATP Tour. Waiting for him on Saturday there will be one between Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic (both they will play today).
Below the highlights of the matches.
