It is semi-final day in the ATP Tour Finals and with the big names topping the 2 teams, our tennis columnist Dan Weston is back with his perspectives on whether either will be defeated today…
Djokovic and Zverev straight back into action
Following straight-set successes for Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic yesterday in London, the duo qualified for the semi-finals, together with the unbeaten Djokovic winning the team and facing Kevin Anderson this day. Second-place Zverev faces Hewitt Group winner Roger Federer, in today.
Before discussing the two matches individually, it’s worth noting that both Federer and Anderson have experienced an extra rest day, though neither of the competitions today had a specially arduous final group match yesterday, both concluding their games in about one hour and a half
Federer with a Large statistical edge over Zverev
Before 14:00 UK time, Federer faces Zverev, and the Exchange marketplace has the Swiss guy priced right at 1.41 to create the closing – a price my version agreed with entirely.
Indoors there is very little contrast between both players. Federer has won 70.8% of service factors, and 41.5% on yield. This combines to 112.3%, a figure which is without doubt elite degree, and in addition, is a figure far in excess of what the German can boast.
Zverev is down in 103.0percent (63.4% support points won, 39.6% on yield ) – a joint figure that isn’t even top 10 flat – and with this large ability gap on the surface demonstrated with these numbers, it’s clear that Federer should be a solid favorite with this clash.
