Did the ATP Finals 2020 mark the days of the future? Ten participations, two finals, zero titles for Rafael Nadal. Fresh from victory in the play-off with Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Spanish champion is unable to break down Daniil Medvedev's resistance.
Even if he somehow wins the first set and finds himself serving for the match at 6-3 5-4. The Russian player fixes the success at 3-6 7-6 (4) 6-3, remains unbeaten in London and reaches Dominic Thiem in the final. Dominic Thiem beats Novak Djokovic in the other semifinal.
The Austrian talent does not exploit four match points in the tie break of the second set, but recovers a 0-4 disadvantage in the final rush and seals the success at 7-5 6-7 (10) 7-6 (5). The world number three, who among other things joined the club of three hundred career victories in the most romantic way available, has also recovered among other things the result of the previous edition.
Below the highlights of the two semifinals.
