Even Tsonga, who has lost both his matches in the ongoing ATP world tour finals can make it to the last four of the competition from Group A, given the level of competition. Novak Djokovic is close to sealing the semi-finals berth after his yesterday's win over Andy Murray.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC is close to sealing an ATP World
tour semi-finals spot after he defeated the London Olympics
gold medalist, Andy Murray in three sets with the score reading 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 in London. It was the Brit, Murray who was looking in better shape in the initial phases but Djokovic came back strongly to surprise Murray with some great display of tennis. The competition is very tight in group A.
There are four contenders - Novak Djokovic
, Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych and Jo Tsonga from Group A, out of which only two are going to make it to the semi-finals of the competition. It could be anyone's game with even Tsonga in the picture, irrespective of his two losses in the competition, though he has a difficult task ahead, but nothing is impossible. If Djokovic wins his last match against Berdych, he is sure to qualify. The rest of the players will play for another semi-finals spot from Group A. Djokovic has not lost a single game in the competition till now.
In group B, all eyes would be on Roger Federer and David Ferrer, as they are scheduled to play their match today. With both the players having won their first matches, the winner of this match would inch closer to the semi-finals spot. Another match between Del Potro and Janko Tipsarevic will also take place later today. Both these players lost their first match. But, it is Federer and Ferrer who are favourites for the last four from group B.
The real test of these players would lie in the business end of the competition, when the last four places are sealed. The knock out competition brings the best out of the players, especially in the tennis arena. The ATP World Tour Finals is the season ending major tournament of the year, so everyone wants to finish the year on a high.
