Roger Federer and Kevin Anderson won the semi-finals of the ATP World Championships on Thursday. For Dominique Thame and Kay Nishikori, the curtain dropped at the end of this year's London tournament.
Twenty-fold Grand Slam winner Federer was enough against Anderson – who was confident of the last four before the game – six games in the next round and the Swiss won the first set 6-4. The party is still busy.
Federer is a record winner in the ATP finals. He won the prestigious tournament six times and has already won his last victory seven years ago. Last year Grigor Dimitrov was the best in London.
Earlier today, Thiem was too strong for Nishikori in two sets: 6-1 and 6-4. Because of this result, the Austrian assured that Anderson could not escape a point in the semifinals of the battle. South Africa, which stood in the Wimbledon final this year, has been won from Thiem and Nishikori.
Although Thyme and Nishikori gave little to each other, the Austrian won the first set with large numbers: 6-1. Both players received a few break points, but Thame was the only one who could make use of two. In the second set, the Austrian was enough to win one for one break.
In the second group, Novak Djokovic had already reached the semifinals of the ATP final on Wednesday by beating Alexander Zverev. Zverev has the best papers in this pool and also rank among the last four.
