TURIN (Italy): Novak Djokovic remains on course for a record sixth place ATP Tour Finals title after a 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (8/6) win Taylor Fritz in Turin on Saturday.
Djokovic brushed off his deadly encounter with Daniel Medvedev the day before to lead the semi-final against the ninth-seeded American.
The 35-year-old Serb will face the winner of the second semi-final between Andrei Rublev and Casper Ruud.
His victory in Sunday’s final will allow him to equal Roger Federer’s six victories in the tournament gathering the eight best players in the world this season.
“I had to fight to survive,” Djokovic said.
“I didn’t feel very responsive or very comfortable. I knew that going into today’s game after yesterday’s grueling battle against Medvedev, it would take me some time to adapt and find the dynamic movement I need against Fritz, who is one of the best servers on the Tour.”
