Novak Djokovic began on Monday night with a convincing victory at the ATP Finals in London. The Serbian, who has risen from # 22 to # 1 since Wimbledon and defended him until 2019, has no problems with world number one John Isner (US). Djokovic beat the 2.08 meter giant smoothly 6: 4.6: 3 and now meets Alexander Zverev (GER-3) on Wednesday in a group attack.
Germany had previously beaten Marin Cilic (CRO-5) in two sets closer and measured themselves on Wednesday as possible in the "Night Session" with the best players currently in the world. "I played a fantastic match, breaking Isner three times, it was usually an impossible mission. It was a very good start for the tournament," Djokovic said happily.
Cristiano Ronaldo in the audience
In front of the eyes, among other things, world soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo in the O2 arena, Djokovic, who only received the year-end trophy for the No. 1 position the night before, was not naked. It was Djokovic's 50th victory this year, where he once again scored several records. Leap from a position outside the top 20 on a tennis throne at the end of the year, which is done before him is not there.
Djokovic in the form shown on Monday night appeared to be ready to equalize the next record: Roger Federer is a record winner in the Masters with six titles (two each in Houston, Shanghai and London). On the other hand, Djokovic belongs to London's Greenwich district, just like the O2 Arena itself: from 2012 to 2015, he has triumphed here four times. If he wins again on Sunday, he has won half of the previous ten editions in London.
First of all, "Djoker" has a perfect start. Not enough 74 minutes is Djokovic against Isner's "substitute" in the field. The competition can definitely continue if Djokovic continues to play. Isner has entered the eighth best of the year only after Rafael Nadal's refusal.
