What followed was an epic at the O2 Arena as Kevin Anderson won 12-10 in a second-set tie-break to overcome young upstart Dominic Thiem.
Today sees top-man Novak Djokovic take centre-stage after the competitive Alexander Zverev and Marin Cilic lock horns this afternoon.
Stay with us as we run through the two big clashes…
Alexander Zverev v Marin Cilic

This is the second-straight year they meet in the London finals. Zverev won in three sets last year and also boasts a 5-1 winning record over his opponent.

Zverev could win the match in under 21.5 Total games at 9/2.
But if it were to go the distance, Cilic’s experience could tell. He’s at 3/1 to win in three sets.
Novak Djokovic v John Isner
Djokovic could cap off a remarkable return to form and bag his sixth World Tour Final title.
Nole reclaimed his number one ranking on his way to winning Wimbledon and the US Open this season.
This all mean he’s 1/9 to secure a victory here.
He faces the powerful John Isner who has an often uncompromising style. The American did beat Zverev in the final of the Miami Open in a three-set epic, but this is a different proposition entirely.
