It will be the dream finale we’ve all been waiting for as Novak Djokovic takes on Andy Murray in the final of the ATP World Tour Finals 2016. In a winner take all duel, Djokovic and Murray will go mano-e-mano in a bid to finish the season at the top of the rankings and also claim the year end championship to boot.

While Murray earlier had to take the long route to the final against a defiant Raonic, Novak Djokovic strolled through to the finals following a 6-1, 6-1 annihilation of Kei Nishikori. The World No. 2 hardly broke a sweat as he swept past Nishikori in just over an hour to make his 6th final at the tournament.

In his last round robin match of Group Ivan Lendl, Novak Djokovic made short work of David Goffin winning 6-1, 6-2 in just over an hour. The Belgian was the alternate for an injured Gael Monfils and his lack of experience with the surroundings was exposed by a rampant Djokovic. The World No.2 broke Goffin four times, won 84% of his first serve points and 62 points to Goffin’s 42 to complete the rout.

The Serb is attempting to finish as year end world no.1 for the 3rd year in a row and needs to finish the tournament better than Murray in order to do so; winning all three of his group matches certainly helps.
