Ruthless Djokovic dismisses Nadal to reach ATP Finals

Serbian, Novak Djokovic, outclassed old adversary, Rafael Nadal, 6-3 6-3 to reach the title match of the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

The world number one suffered a shock loss to Roger Federer in the round-robin section of the tournament earlier this week, but hit back and beat Tomas Berdych to book a date with Nadal.

Djokovic proved to be far too good for the Spaniard as he triumphed at London’s O2 Arena.

The Serbian ace is looking to win the end-of-season event for the fourth straight year, and fifth time overall, and will face either Stan Wawrinka or Federer in Sunday’s final.

And the 28-year-old clearly fancies his chances after confessing that he cannot play much better than he did on Saturday afternoon.

“It was a great performance, from the very beginning I managed to execute the game plan,” he said. “I needed to be aggressive and dictate play against a great defender like Rafa.

“I played my best game when it mattered the most and got to the final.”

Asked to pick out Djokovic’s main strengths, Nadal said: “Everything. He’s hitting amazing. The return was always amazing. This year he’s serving great, I think.

“When somebody’s doing like this, the only thing I can do is congratulate him and just wish him not the best of luck for the next year.”
