Nadal produces stunning ATP Finals comeback to deny Medvedev

Nadal produces stunning ATP Finals comeback to deny Medvedev

Nadal had just lost to the German in straight sets in his opening group match on Monday when the Italian journalist Ubaldo Scanagatta made the unusual accusation.

In a captivating first set the players swapped a break apiece but Djokovic, a five-time ATP Finals champion, edged the tie-break.

'This is definitely a place and a court that I love, and that brings the best out of me, ' Zverev said after his straight-sets win over Nadal.

But he could not manufacture a single break point against the dogged Tsitsipas, who secured the only break at 5-4 in the second set before serving out. "I would not say I have a special relationship with him, but I have to be honest: after his interview in Shanghai, I told myself that I will probably not forgive him, I will remember it all when I will speak". "Is this a serious question or is it a joke?" Nadal shot back after the 6-2 6-4 defeat. It was a great night for me, especially as I've been struggling all year.

"It doesn't matter if you put a ring on your finger or not".

'Now I'm here, I want to use the opportunity as much as I can and do the best as I can.

Nadal then ended the line of questioning with the reporter: "OK".

"No, just Sascha, well played, and me, bad played, honestly".

The 21-year-old, the first Greek player to qualify for the elite eight-man season-ender, backed up his opening win over Daniil Medvedev with a virtuoso performance at the O2 Arena.

Nadal, 33, next meets Greek star Tsitsipas in his final group match as he seeks a semifinal berth, but also knows that he will hold on to the world number one spot should Novak Djokovic fail to win the tournament.

Earlier, Federer defeated debutant Matteo Berrettini 7-6 (7/2), 6-3 in their round-robin clash to keep his hopes alive of reaching the last four at the season-ending event.

Nadal returns to action against Daniil Medvedev this afternoon and he has received praise for the way he has gone about his business. Nadal is bidding to end the year as world No. 1 for the fifth time, although Djokovic may take the crown from him in London.
