ATP Finals 2021: Alexander Zverev defeats Novak Djokovic in semis, Will play finals against Medvedev.

Novak Djokovic's quest for a record-equalling sixth ATP Finals title was ended by German third seed Alexander Zverev in a high-quality semi-final.

World number one Djokovic was beaten 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-3 as 24-year-old Zverev booked his place in Sunday's final against Russia's Daniil Medvedev.

Zverev played superbly throughout, serving well and patiently trading from the baseline to wear Djokovic down.

Defending champion Medvedev beat Norway's Casper Ruud in Turin.

Earlier on Saturday, world number two Medvedev cruised past Casper Ruud in the first semi-final, winning 6-4, 6-2.

The Russian will be a slight favourite for the final and has won six of his 11 previous meetings with Zverev, including the last five.

Zverev sealed victory with a huge ace at 11:40pm local time and goes on to meet US Open champion Medvedev, who clinched a comfortable 6-4 6-2 win several hours earlier, at 5pm (16:00 GMT) on Sunday.
