ATP Finals: Day 2

Now that everyone has played once it is a good indicator on who has performed and who needs to perform and soon. The great thing about this format as it quickly turns into must win for players and two who did win on Day 2 were Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev

Djokovic and Daniil Dominate!

It was a good start for both Djokovic and Medvedev.

In their respective matches the Serb and the Russian found themselves down an early break but went onto win in style.

Djokovic was down 1-2 and went onto win eleven of the next fourteen games to see off Diego Schwartzman in style. Novak really nullified the attack of the Argentine with his excellent defensive work and it needed more variety from Diego in attack to pick the lock of the world number one.

Daniil Medvedev took his time but he picked the lock on Monday night, the first six games took around 41 minutes to get through but at the sit down it was the Russian with some control breaking for a 4-2 lead. He dug in well and was smart with his tennis, opening up the court with his forehand and was flawless at the net.

This continued into the second set where Daniil gained more control and was continuously flawless dropping just five points on serve against Zverev who lacked any plan and for the second time in eight days the Russian got the better of the German.

Doubles delight!

Over four matches we have had four tie-breaks in the mens doubles matches and for the third time already this week a third set tie-break was needed.

First up on Day two we saw Granollers and Zeballos win two very close sets against John Peers and Michael Venus 7-6 7-5 to claim their first win of the event.

To kick off the night sessions Mate Pavic and Bruno Soares found themselves in a little bit of bother, the top seeds lost a first set tie-break 6-8 to Melzer and Roger-Vasselin but went onto drop just fourteen points in the remaining two sets to win 6-7 6-1 10-4.
