Djokovic against Berrettini sovereign
Novak Djokovic made a brilliant start on Sunday at the ATP Finals. 32-year-old Serb Djokovic never doubted the winner in the first duel with Matteo Berrettini in the # 8 spot, scoring 6: 2.6: 1 in 63 minutes over the "Masters" debutants.
Djokovic has once again shown that the scene of London is easy. Only a few months ago he triumphed for the fifth time in Wimbledon in the west of the city, in the O2 arena in the east he has also won four of his five ATP Finals titles. Of course I've had a great stay here in London earlier this year, played well at Wimbledon and played really well in the arena over the years, "said a satisfied" djoker ".
Djokovic, last time winner of the 1000th Paris-Bercy event, has the chance, under certain circumstances, to end the year as number one in the world for the sixth time in his career. However, Rafael Nadal, if he is fit, has a say in the matter. It is already clear that Djokovic will have to reach the final again, as in the previous year.
Of course, Djokovic knew from Berrettini's debut in the Giant Hall: "It was not easy for him in his first match at the ATP Finals, I knew he would probably be a bit nervous at the beginning and I tried to use my experience and apparently the right tactic to play well, "analyzed the now 16-time major winner. "I made the break in the middle of the first set, then I read his serve better."
