Russia's Daniil Medvedev and Germany's world number three Alexander Zverev will face off in the 2021 ATP Finals final. Alexander Zverev surprisingly defeated world number one and top seed Novak Djokovic 7-6(4) 4- 6 6-3, on Saturday Italian time or Sunday WIB.
After a draw in the first two sets, own faults began to creep into Novak Djokovic's game in the third. He hit a long backhand that actually gave Alexander Zverev the opportunity to lead the match 3-1. Two games later, the German looked even more fiery, but instead opened the door for the Russian to retaliate. Not to be outdone, Zverev hit a second serve that Djokovic couldn't handle to lead 5-2 before closing the match.
"Once Novak got into rhythm when he came back he was very difficult, so I tried different things," Zverev said.
