World number one Novak Djokovic looked imperious in a straight-sets dismissal of Andrey Rublev on Wednesday to see himself safely through to the semi-finals of the ATP Finals. The 34-year-old has broken too many records to list here this season but he is chasing a sixth title at the illustrious year-end tournament to level Roger Federer’s all-time record. The Serb also drew level with Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 Grand Slams each this year after winning the Australian Open, Roland-Garros and Wimbledon.
World number 12 Cam Norrie took the first set against Casper Ruud before losing in three in his sudden air-drop into the ATP Finals to cover for an injured Stefanos Tsitsipas. The 26-year-old cannot qualify for the semi-finals now with one of Ruud and Andrey Rublev set to go through in the other group match but he has thoroughly deserved the experience after a stunning breakthrough on tour. Norrie’s 50-22 win record on tour is bested only by Novak Djokovic (50-6), Alexander Zverev (56-15), Daniil Medvedev (56-12), Stefanos Tsitsipas (55-19) and Ruud (54-16) with an incredible run to a first Masters title at Indian Wells last month the crowning glory.
This match could go anywhere at all as a pretty exciting dead rubber, with Novak Djokovic already through and not needing to overtly exert himself and Cam Norrie playing the last tour-level match of an incredible season. The new British number one will lead Team GB at the Davis Cup next week but a first meeting with the world number one feels a special, symbolic reward for all his efforts in 2021. Given that both players are playing for nothing here but Djokovic will have half a mind on the semi-finals, taking Norrie to snatch at least a set here could be the wise move with the real potential for an upset. The line in this match-up on any normal occasion would of course be Djokovic to win, and probably Djokovic in two, but Norrie will be up for this in a huge way and he deserves the backing to end his season on a high even if he loses in three here.
