World number one Novak Djokovic took a big step towards the semi-finals at the ATP Finals with a victory over Alexander Zverev on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Serb won 6-4 6-1, and maintains his run at possibly winning a first ATP Finals title since 2015.

“I don’t think it was breathtaking tennis but a win is a win,” the BBC quotes him as saying after the match.

“I played well midway through the second set and started to swing through the ball.

“I had not served that well but he made a lot of unforced errors which helped me to win.”

Indeed, it was a double-fault from Zverev that handed Djokovic the first set and a total of 33 unforced errors that contributed to the 21-year-old’s downfall.

Djokovic plays Cilic in his final round-robin match on Friday, while Zverev takes on Isner.
