The men`s Tennis is facing quite an exit show for the current season. The ATP Tour Finals is going to be a huge match as Novak Djokovic is set to test his strength against Andy Murray. The Scotsman who last week took the world no. 1 spot from Djokovic will have to deal with the biggest challenge, a strange posture for him being the one to have to defend this particular position. It is something he has not really had to deal with so far. Moreover, it will be the first time when the ATP Finals will decide who is going to end the year as world no. 1. As it can be seen, the stakes are high, as well as the expectations from both sides.

Murray survived a genuine scare against Raonic

Yesterday, Andy Murray almost saw his dream ended by the Canadian player. Raonic put in some great tennis and took the opening set by a score of 7-5. In the second set, despite some difficulties, he kept his sharpness and pushed the set to a tie-break. The Scotsman proved his mastery and once the opportunity of a set point arrived, he made his move and took the set.

In the 3rd set, both athletes played a weird act. Some great shots were almost immediately followed by some errors. The tension inside the O2 Arena was critical with the crowd being almost entirely on Murray`s side. But Raonic did not give in, and the decisive set went on to a tie-break.

On his 4th opportunity, Andy Murray closed the set.

Djokovic dismantled Nishikori

Despite having a solid run lately, Kei Nishikori was way off the right path yesterday. In the semis, he was not able to bother Djokovic, not for a single moment. It was an extremely one-sided match with Djokovic claiming the victory in 2 symmetrical sets 6-1 6-1.

In their previous meeting, the Japanese tennis star put up a decent fight.

Djokovic may step into the final with significant leverage as he spent so little time on the tennis court while facing Nishikori. On the other side, Murray claimed the victory against Raonic at the end of a gruelling encounter of over 3 and a half hours.
