Tennis News – ATP London
It is a great day for tennis, because the 2017 ATP Finals in London have begun! We have witnessed the first two games from the Boris Becker group, where Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev enjoyed their first wins in this year’s competition.
The legendary Roger Federer faced the American Jack Sock in his first match in London. It was not an easy game for the Swiss genius, because Sock showed good tennis and remind us all why he qualified for the ATP finals. But in the end, Federer managed to enjoy a win in two sets over Sock – 6-4 7-6(4). It was not Federer’s easiest game ever, but he showed his class and proved himself to be one of the major contenders for the trophy this year.
In the second game for the day, the young and extremely talented Alexander Zverev lost a set, but took a win over the former US Open champion Marin Cilic – 6-4 3-6 6-4. It was a great battle between these two. Cilic managed to come back in the match after losing the first set, but in the decisive third set it was the young Alex Zverev who showed more. Some would say that in these moments his youth could be a problem, but today Alexander showed everyone that he’s for sure a future king in the world of tennis.
Now we are already expecting the first games from the Pete Sampras group.
First we are going to witness the game between Grigor Dimitrov and Dominic Thiem. After them, we shall see on the court the world №1 Rafael Nadal against the Belgian David Goffin.
The big question is about Nadal’s health. There were rumours that he may miss the tournament because of an injury. Is he healthy enough to be competitive? We shall see.
