Nole wins Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title

Nole wins Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title

Novak Djokovic won the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title, his fourth season finale crown, when Roger Federer withdrew due to a back injury ahead of Sunday’s final at The O2 in London.

"We always give 100 per cent," said Djokovic. "I'm sure that if he could've played, he would've done. So I wish him the best in his recovery.

"I'm not one of those players that celebrates these particular wins, but I have to reflect on the whole season. This trophy is definitely the crown for all the achievements that I had this year. I owe the credit to my team, to all the people who supported me all the way through, and plenty of joy. I'm very happy to be able to stand here and finish with this trophy."

Nole wants his third consecutive Barclays ATP World Tour title

Nole wants his third consecutive Barclays ATP World Tour title

Novak Djokovic is looking ahead to a potentially historic week at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals as he will have the chance to imitate Ivan Lendl, who 27 years ago won three consecutive titles from 1985-87.

The Serb, who is also vying for a third year-end No. 1 in in four years, acknowledges there is plenty on the line as the season reaches its conclusion.

“It started in China,” said Djokovic, referring to his recent run of form that included titles at the China Open and BNP Paribas Masters. “Now I’m in a good place. I’m fighting for (year-end) No. 1 in the world. I won this tournament two years in a row. It gives me enough reason to do well this year.

“It’s the last tournament of the season. Only the best eight players in the world play here. It’s a unique format, round robin, that we don’t have on the Tour at all. It’s the crowning achievement for all players here and they all want to finish in the best possible way. That’s why every match that you play in the group is like playing in the semi-finals or final of a Grand Slam.”

Follow all the action and watch matches online at Bet365

Novak Djokovic scored a 6-2, 6-3 win over Kei Nishikori at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris and set up a finl clash with Milos Raonic.

"It was a great match," Djokovic said. "I haven't dropped a set getting into the finals. I definitely feel fresh and motivated to play well tomorrow. We could see Kei wasn't serving at his best, maybe he was fatigued from finishing late last night. Regardless, I played well and concentrated on what I needed to do. I served exceptionally well in the important moments and it's something that encourages me for tomorrow.

"I've been very impressed with Raonic. He's one of the best servers in the game. He isn't missing too many and his second serve is bouncing very high. He has very good movement for somebody of his height. He's improved his baseline game and he's a complete player now. He's experiencing the best time of his career and he's coming off back-to-back wins against Federer and Berdych and I'm sure he's motivated to win tomorrow. Having said that he's one of the best servers, one of the keys of the match tomorrow will be trying to get as many returns back in the court and make him play."

Proud dad Djokovic already feels 'number one'

Proud dad Djokovic already feels 'number one'

Novak Djokovic already feels 'number one' after becoming a father last week, and says his battle with Roger Federer for the year-end top global ranking is no more than a luxury problem.

The 27-year-old Serb comes to the Paris Masters, which began on Monday, as defending champion, but his lead at the top of the ATP rankings has been slashed to less than 500 points as the charging Federer looks to snatch another impressive milestone in an already glorious career.

With 2,500 points on offer at the year-ending tournaments in the French capital, closely followed by the World Tour Finals in London, both players have it all to play for.

However, the mild-mannered Djokovic says becoming a father has been the best moments of his life, and while tennis is still a priority, it is now not the only thing that counts.

Nole unstoppable in China

Nole unstoppable in China

Novak Djokovic beat David Ferrer 64 62 for a place in the Shanghai Rolex Masters semi-finals.

Nole is enjoying a winning streak of 29 matches on Chinese soil but next faces Roger Federer, who beat Julien Benneteau 76 60, and I must say that as a Federer lover I have to bet on him to end the Serb's winning form.

Djokovic broke Ferrer’s serve in the second game and went on to save two break points at 5-4. He won 25 of his 33 service points in the 57-minute first set.

Ferrer was broken at the start of the second set and at 2-4. The match lasted one hour and 35 minutes.

Nole wins China Open title.... Again....

Nole wins China Open title.... Again....

China it is really Nole's place to be.... Novak Djokovic won his fifth China Open title after crushing Tomas Berdych 6-0, 6-2 in the final.

Djokovic was one point away from handing Berdych a "double bagel" - a 6-0, 6-0 defeat - but the Czech player fought off match point, then broke Djokovic to win his first game. He raised both arms in celebration and smiled with relief as the crowd roared.

The Serb sealed the victory two games later to improve his sparkling record at the China Open to 24-0.

"I met somebody in the final who I've never seen before," Berdych said. "I was just swept out from the court."

Djokovic said he woke up Sunday with a good feeling, and that continued when he stepped on court and broke Berdych in the first game.

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters, Federer keeps winning

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters

Tommy Robredo beat Novak Djokovic 7-6 (6), 7-5 in the round of 16 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Too bad I did not wager on tennis this time as this was only the second time Robredo defeats a top ranked player. It would have been a big gain.

Nole dropped the first set after fighting back from a 6-3 deficit in the tiebreaker but Robredo took it with an ace.

Robredo failed to convert two match points before completing the victory with a slam on Djokovic's short lob.

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battled it out in one of the most historic Wimbledon finals ever.

Djokovic took down Federer in a five-set final Sunday that nobody will soon forget.

The crazy thing about this Wimbledon final is it looked over early in the fourth set, when Federer found himself down a set and inn a 3-5 hole to a man who was battling injury at times, but seemed to bounce back faster and stronger with each visit from the trainer.

Djokovic was serving for the match at 5-3 in the fourth after some loose service games from Federer, but the 17-time Grand Slam winner was able to break Novak to keep himself in the match. Federer went on to win the final four games of that fourth set, and took all the momentum of the match to the deciding fifth set where Federer has seen both triumph and heartbreak.

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Andy Murray became the first British to win Wimbledon in 77 years but if I have to bet I wouldn't bet on him to win the title again at the men's Wimbledon betting market.

The Scott crushed out of Roland Garros badly against Rafa Nadal and suffered an early defeat at Queen's .

“In some ways, it can be good [to have the extra time], providing I use next week properly,” he explained after his defeat. “For me, it’s probably going to get quite hectic towards the end of next week. So over the next few days it will be nice just to have a bit of peace and quiet.”

At Wimbledon Murray will have a difficult time as Roger Federer is playing at a very high level and Wimbledon is his place.

Let's have a look at some early predictions for the fantastic four going into tennis' grass season.

Rafa wins 9th French Open title

Rafa wins 9th French Open title

Trying to beat Rafael Nadal at the French Open is, without a doubt, the toughest task in tennis. Indeed, must be among the greatest challenges in all of sports.

The pressure he applies, from set to set, game to game, point to point, shot to shot. That bullwhip of a high-bouncing, topspin lefty forehand. Those quick-reflex returns that help him break an opponent's serve - and his will.

Doing what he does so well on the red clay of Roland Garros, a surface and site he dominates so completely, the No. 1-seeded Nadal wore down No. 2 Novak Djokovic 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 in a muggy final Sunday to win his ninth French Open championship and fifth in a row, both records.

''For me,'' Nadal said, ''playing here in Roland Garros is just unforgettable, forever.''

It is also his 14th Grand Slam title overall, tying the 28-year-old Spaniard with Pete Sampras for the second most by a man, behind only Roger Federer's 17.

Djokovic looks to maintain edge over rival Nadal

Djokovic looks to maintain edge over rival Nadal

Novak Djokovic looks to continue his recent dominance over archrival Rafael Nadal at the Monte Carlo Masters and boost his confidence as he bids to win his only missing major at the French Open.

Monte Carlo is the first of three Masters tournaments played on clay and is followed by Madrid and Rome in May, leading up to the French Open, which starts May 25.

Nole narrowly lost to Nadal in a dramatic semifinal last year at Roland Garros, where a clumsy error at the net late in the fifth set curtailed the Serbian player's comeback, and then Nadal beat him in their next two meetings.

"Winning this title last year in the final against Nadal was definitely one of the highlights of my career. I really love playing in this tournament," Djokovic said Sunday. "My family comes in big numbers during this week so it makes me feel very comfortable, and at home."

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the Indian Wells 2014.

Federer rallied from a break down and a 5-3 deficit in the third set to force the tiebreaker Sunday, but he made a slew of mistakes to lose the 33rd meeting between the two rivals.

Federer still leads the series 17-16, having beaten Djokovic in three sets in the semifinals at Dubai two weeks ago. Djokovic will remain No. 2 in the world, while Federer will rise three spots to No. 5 on Monday in the ATP Tour rankings.

Nole earned $1 million while Federer collected $500,000.

Djokovic upset by Wawrinka in Australian Open quarterfinals

Djokovic upset by Wawrinka in Australian Open quarterfinals

Novak loss to Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 in the quarterfinals of the 2014 Australian Open.

Djokovic held off Wawrinka 12-10 in the fifth set in a 5-hour, 2-minute fourth-rounder that finished at 1:41 a.m. here last year.

This time, it was Wawrinka's turn.

"Last year I finished it was really tough but this year I came back it was a new year," he said. "I tried everything. He's an amazing champion. He never gives up. I'm really, really ... really happy."

This one took exactly four hours and featured some stunning rallies, with both players openly showing amazement at some of the shots coming back from the other side. And just to add to the drama, there was a five-minute rain delay with Wawrinka serving at 5-5 in the fifth.
