Henman & Becker on why Roger Federer failed to capture Djokovic ‘sparkle' vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

Federer waved goodbye to the ATP Finals
Two days after putting Novak Djokovic to the sword, Roger Federer put in a stuttering display in a 6-3 6-4 defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas as he tumbled out of the ATP Finals.
On Thursday night, Federer served metronomically, hit aggressively and simply overawed a man he had failed to beat for four years. Come Saturday, Federer failed to recapture that, as Boris Becker puts it, ‘sparkle'.
Two missed smashes during his first service game - in which he was broken - set the tone, with Federer always playing catch-up from that point.
Tsitsipas played a...

Stefanos Tsitsipas overcomes Roger Federer to reach final of ATP Finals

29 days ago   |   By The Guardian

• Greek wins 6-3, 6-4 in titanic semi-final encounter
• Tsitsipas: ‘Beating him is the biggest honour I could have' Stefanos Tsitsipas, looking eerily like a young Roger Federer, reached the ninth final of his young career by beating the game's most enduring champion, 6-3, 6-4, for a place in Sunday's deciding match in the ATP Tour Finals. The 17-year age differential between them is the biggest in the 50-year history of the event, and a pointer to the power shift in the game. He saved 11 of 12 break points in a match that see-sawed for most of the hour and 36 minutes it held the packed...

Tsitsipas pulled off a big win
Stefanos Tsitsipas was immensely proud of his straight sets win over Roger Federer to reach the final of the ATP Finals, hailing the 6-3 6-4 win as one of his best of the season.

The 17-year age gap between them is the biggest ever seen at the season-ending championships but youth seized the day, keeping Federer's ‘magic' at bay as he saved 11 of 12 break points to claim...
