  • On this day Novak Djokovic dethrones hometown hero Roger Federer in Basel

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic were the top three seeds when they first competed together at the tournament way back in 2007 and are still the men to beat 12 years later.

Leading 4-0 in the second set on Sunday, Djokovic hit a backhand wide to concede a break to the Italian - the only blip in an otherwise dominant 6-2, 6-1 victory - and then angrily turned toward his player's box and shouted out his frustration. But Djokovic, who won four straight titles at the O2 Arena between 2012 and 2015, broke right back and then clinched the victory with an easy forehand putaway at the net.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic celebrates after winning his group stage match against Italy's Matteo Berrettini.

"He missed a relatively easy forehand for him that gave me a break (in the first set)", Djokovic said.

Having not dropped a point in the opening game, the 32-year-old forced Berrettini to deuce on his first serve before two breaks handed him the set.

Dolphins' Reshad Jones ruled out again vs Colts
This is not a shocking growth when you take into account that Indianapolis elevated Chad Kelly from the apply squad nowadays. He did restricted work in follow this week, but the Colts didn't rule him out on Friday.

Djokovic, four times a victor of the title since the tournament moved to London in 2009, had never played Berrettini before but quickly got to grips with the aggressive style of the 23-year-old Italian. Roger got broken at love in the 11th game following a deep return from Thiem who fended off a couple of break chances with good first serves in the next game to convert the second match point with a service victor that carried him over the top. I've been enjoying it very much. "I think I started the match pretty good, but he was just better than me today".

Roger Federer plays Dominic Thiem in the same group later on Sunday as the season-ending championships.

Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Zverev are in Group Andre Agassi.

World number two Djokovic can overtake Nadal to become year-end number one this week in London but must reach the final to stand a chance.

The Serbian, a five-time champion at the end-of-season event, was last week nudged off the top spot in the rankings by Rafael Nadal, who is also in the eight-man field in London.
