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.

10 monthes 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.
