Djokovic beat Medvedev to lead Serbia into ATP Cup final

Novak Djokovic outlasts Daniil Medvedev to lead Serbia into 2020 ATP Cup final.





World number two Novak Djokovic played tactical tennis on Saturday to stay away Russia, Daniil Medvedev at the inaugural ATP Cup in Sydney and earn a place for Serbia in the tournament’s final.


The Serbian won the match 6-1 5-7 6-4 after he relentlessly pushed the 198cm (6.5 ft) tall Russian around the court, forcing Medvedev to constantly scrape shots off his shoe laces.


 Serbia now faces the winner of host nation Australia, led by Alex De Minaur, and Rafael Nadal’s Spain in Sunday’s final.

 Earlier, Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic beat his more highly ranked opponent, Russia’s Karen Khachanov, giving Serbia an unassailable 2-0 lead going into the doubles match.



 Djokovic said, "his tactics worked for a set before his opponent responded."

“He started figuring out the strategy and I had to adjust and I had to change,” Djokovic said after the match.
 "Medvedev is one of the best players in the world and he showed today why," Djokovic said after their rubber.

 "This was the most difficult challenge I have had so far this year."



 The 19-time Grand Slam champion later withdrew from the ATP event in Adelaide, which begins on 12 January. The Australian Open - the first Grand Slam of the year - starts on 20 January.
