ATP Masters: Djokovic reaches his eighth final out of 15 appearances

Serbian Novak Djokovic ensured Saturday in Turin his qualification for an eighth Masters final in fifteen appearances. He thus beat in the semi-final, the American Taylor Fritz (9th) who was in his first in this tournament, with the score of 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (8/6).

For this final, Djuko, 35 years old and 8th in the world, will be opposed, on Sunday, to the winner of the duel Andrey Rublev (7th)-Casper Ruud (4th). He will try to equal the record held by Roger Federer, namely that of six titles in this tournament bringing together the eight best players of the season.

He will also aim for his second major title of the year, after Wimbledon, having missed a significant part of the season (including the Australian Open and the US Open) for his refusal of the anti-covid vaccine.

The question was whether Djokovic would be recovered from the huge slack he experienced the day before against Daniil Medvedev during a terrible showdown of 3:11, however without any stake for the rest of the tournament.

The Serb held on thanks to the efficiency of his serve (he won 85% of the points played on his first ball in the first set and 75% throughout the game), and his ability to deliver the fatal blow at the right time.
