In the finals of the World Finals, the favorite Federer begins with a defeat – and under pressure. There is a win and therefore a chance for a semifinals. Then he could wait for the German Zverev.

Tennis star Roger Federer looks at the semifinals at the ATP World Tour Finals. Switzerland won 6-2, 6-3 in London against Dominic Thiem from Austria and so she tried to start Sunday. After a smooth double success, the 20-year-old Grand Slam winner and the last record on Thursday in the final match against Kevin Anderson still get a chance to advance on the go.

Unlike Sunday, Federer showed steady and strong from the starting stage this time. With early breaks, he quickly sat in both groups of Thiem and left no chance to the Austrians. Federer, who has won the tournament six times at the end of the year, is looking for his win on the 100th tournament. "I feel good, I'm very happy, I showed a reaction after the last game," said the 37-year-old after his safe victory. "I like to play here," the veteran added.

Favorite audience "Fedek"

For fans in a well-stocked arena, "Fedek" is absolutely dear. Already at the beginning of the match, some 20,000 people loudly greeted him with calls and songs. Switzerland was released after her victory, threw her head in the audience and laughed. With the increase, his match would be sealed after two group matches.

Anderson had previously defeated Kei Nishikori of Japan from 6: 0, 6: 1 and thus celebrated his second victory. Austrian Thiem has only a slight chance of progress after the second defeat. Federer, Anderson and Nishikori are possible semi-final opponents of Alexander Zverev, who started winning in London. The 21-year-old Germanman will meet Primus Novak Djokovic on Wednesday (15:00).
