The round-robin stage is over and we’ve moved into the business end. Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson will slug it out in today’s semifinals at The O2. Two, as it should be, will make it through.
Here’s what I think will go:
Roger Federer to beat Alexander Zverev at 1.30 on Wakabet, ATP Tour Finals
Roger Federer will seek to stay on track for an unprecedented seventh Nitro ATP Finals crown, and I think he should. The great Swiss is in special form at the moment. Since his loss to Kei Nishikori in his first match in London, Federer has dispatched the rest of the group in straight sets. Zverev might not be able to match Federer’s overall quality of play as the 37-year-old possesses too much guile and craft for the young German.
1.30 for the win is quite generous. Bank on that!
Novak Djokovic to beat Kevin Anderson in straight sets at 1.44 on Wakabet, ATP Tour Finals
Novak Djokovic has appeared unbeatable, and against Anderson, he’s won six of seven meetings.
The Serb boasts the best defence in the game and his return of serve is sure to neutralize Anderson’s big serve. Aside that, Djokovic has also been serving really well. I can’t see him dropping a set.
The Serb should get this done in two sets. 1.44 for that is a great pick!
