ATP Finals | Djokovic starts hungry to melt Berrettini


Very easily, surely more than I expected in the face of an opponent he had never faced, Novak Djokovic completely fused Matteo Berrettini and extended to 11 his number of consecutive victories in first matches of the ATP Finals. The Serbian only made 8 unforced errors (by the 28 of his rival) in a match that solved with surgical precision before the 23-year-old Italian debutante, who paid the hazing: 6-2 and 6-1 in 62 minutes.

Thus began the attempt to reconquer number one by Nole (adds 200 points and is 440 from Nadal), serious and focused, which does not fall in his debut at the Masters since he won David Ferrer in 2007. Berrettini had nothing to lose after making history for his country, being the first Italian to play the tournament since Corrado Barazzuti in 1978. Before, in 1975, Adriano Panatta had done it. Both left the Finals with a 0-3 in the group stage. Matteo's good came a great date, in a full London O2.

Djokovic broke for 4-2 in the first set and in the second he started with a 4-0. Then he lost the serve for the first and only time, an anecdotal accident that did not make any grace. He plagued the Balkan and immediately prescribed Berrettini another break to sentence with 6-1 a duel in which he barely broke a sweat. On Tuesday, he will probably play with the winner of Federer-Thiem, who also plays this Sunday at 9:00 pm (Movistar Deportes)
