  • Federer Into ATP Semifinals

Continuing to defy Father Time, Roger Federer has seen off generation next to surge into a record 14th semi-final in 15 appearances at the ATP Finals. Despite the defeat, the young German also still has the opportunity to advance to the last four.

Zverev is tipped to become world number one in the near future but on this occasion the master got the better of the apprentice as Federer battled to a 7-6 (8-6) 5-7 6-1 victory at the O2 Arena in London.

"I wouldn't be out here playing, competing if I didn't think I could give myself a chance to win tournaments, to be here", Sock said. But I love playing here in London, it's an incredible atmosphere, you make me feel like home.

While mentioning Zverev's name alongside that of 22-year-old Nick Kyrgios and 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov as youthful players who impressed him, Federer added: "What I like about Zverev is he's got the full package". With his win over Zverev, he secures his place in the semifinals.

Corden and Pink hit numerous singer's hits while on their drive, including " Raise Your Glass ", " Get This Party Started " and " Beautiful Trauma ".


Sock earlier produced a dramatic comeback triumph 5-7 6-2 7-6 (4) over the erratic Marin Cilic, 29, who is now eliminated after two straight defeats.

"I'm not the type of guy that will just enter a draw and be happy to make the third round or the quarters or whatever".

Coming into Tuesday's match, Federer and Zverev, 20, had faced each other four times and each had won twice.

In the absence of Rafael Nadal - who withdrew from the Nitto ATP Finals late on Monday night - it is hard to see who might stop Roger Federer from capping his glorious season with trophy No 8.
