Young guns to battle it out for the last ATP Finals semi spot

Andrey Rublev takes on Casper Ruud in the final day of Green Group action with both men attempting to make it the semi finals to take on World Number Two Daniil Medvedev.

Medvedev looked impressive in Thursday night’s dead rubber against Jannik Sinner, edging out a 6-0, 6-7, 7-6 victory. The audience was pretty enthralled although the boredom of playing a ‘pointless’ match was evident as the eccentric star mock-yawned on court. ‘Mentally, it’s really tough before the match when you know the match is dead,’ he admitted.

The Russian will play either fifth-ranked Rublev or Norwegian Casper Ruud in the semi final. Ruud, making his first appearance at the ATP Finals, seemingly has his work cut out since has has never beaten Rublev in four previous attempts.

Novak Djokovic takes on Brit Cameron Norrie for the first time in his final Round Robin match. Although it’s a dead rubber with Djokovic having qualified for the semis, the World Number One could be mindful about expending too much energy.

His semi final opponent Alexander Zverev will be waiting for him with fresh legs having wrapped up his final group-stage match 30 hours earlier.
