Djokovic reflects on win

Novak Djokovic dedicated his victory over Roger Federer at the ATP World Tour Finals to his ill father.

The world number one beat Federer 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 to win the season-ending title at London's O2 Arena and later revealed how he had been motivated by his father Srdjan, who is reportedly suffering from an acute respiratory illness.

"This was a title for him," said the 25-year-old Serb to the BBC. "He's much better now. At a certain stage it was very critical. We didn't know what tomorrow brings, but now he's much better and he's recovering.

Djokovic won in London to add the trophy  to his recent successes in Japan and China and he has bounced back well after losing his US Open crown to Andy Murray in September.

But he needed two hours and 14 minutes to take two sets in a match of high quality. And it is the second time Djokovic has won the ATP finale, following his triumph in Shanghai four years ago.

"I was just trying to hang in there," said Djokovic. "It's not the first time that Roger started so well against me. I've experienced before his aggression, really trying to put his mark on the match."

In terms of grand slam and tournament wins, 2011 was more lucrative for Djokovic. But despite just the one major this year - the Australian Open back in January - the Serb is delighted with his work. Make no mistake, he is the man to beat in 2013.

"All in all, it was a fantastic year where I've had to face a lot of difficulties off the courts as well," he added.

"Especially coming into this tournament, having my father fighting his own fight for health gave me extra strength that I wanted to play for him in a way, that's one of the reasons I really gave it all every match."

Djokovic and Federer set to do battle in the ATP World Tour Final this evening

It should be a cracking evening of tennis tonight as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic go head to head in the final of the ATP World Tour Finals.

Both of these men will be looking to end the year on a high and show that they are the best player around right now. The 02 Arena is sure to be packed to the rafters and the fans look as though they are all but guaranteed a superb encounter.

Federer has shown a lot of people that may have doubted him that he is still world class and capable of beating anyone this year and is of course looking to add to the Wimbledon title he won in London earlier in the year.

Djokovic has had somewhat of a frustrating year and a victory this evening will be just what he is after as he looks to end 2012 on a high.

With the form both of these men are in right now, it is difficult to see anything other than a classic at the 02.

If we look at some a betting bonus or two for this one, you will see that it is the Serbian who is the favourite to come out on top as he is at 4/7 with Blue Square to claim this season finale title.

Federer is then available at 11/8 with Paddy Power, so with the form he is in certainly does offer some good value.

These two have shown over the years that they are made for the big stage and have also made winning finals somewhat of a habit, so it seems fair that one of them will have the final say on what has been an incredible year for tennis.

The winner of this will also take plenty of momentum into the Australian Open, which of course takes place in January.
