Djokovic beats Federer to win World Tour Finals

Novak Djokovic wins ATP title

Novak Djokovic capped a remarkable season with victory over Roger Federer to claim a record fourth straight ATP World Tour Finals title, reports BBC.

The world number one from Serbia broke serve three times to win 6-3 6-4 in 80 minutes at London’s O2 Arena.

Djokovic also made amends for defeat by six-time champion Federer in the group stage on Tuesday.

“I am enjoying every moment on the court, I cherish every moment after dreaming of it as a kid,” he said.

He ends the year with 11 titles including three Grand Slams, taking his total to 10 majors.

The 28-year-old has now won the season finale five times and surpasses Ivan Lendl’s 1987 achievement, when he won his third straight Tour Finals title in New York.

Federer said: “It is never fun on the not winning side, but it is better than not playing at all like last year. This week was great, there were some crazy points tonight, but like plenty of times this year Novak deserved it.”
