Cristiano Ronaldo attends tennis finals in London with family

Cristiano Ronaldo attends tennis finals in London with family”

The elastic-limbed 31-year-old, bidding to equal Roger Federer's record of six titles at the ATP's blue-riband event, produced an immaculate display to tame American giant John Isner, who was making his tournament debut, 6-4 6-3.

"I told him [Higuain] to calm down, as he risked an even worse ban", Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

Zverev provided some fierce resistance in the opening set of their round-robin match, but as he so often does Djokovic played the percentages.

Ronaldo scored the second in the 2-0 win over AC Milan on Sunday to secure an unprecedented 34 points from 36 points available after 12 games in Serie A.

"I guess winning the first set really counts this year".

He will advance into the last four of the season-ending tournament for the eighth time if John Isner beats Marin Cilic in the evening session.

Zverev saved two break points before a double fault - his 18th unforced error of the opener - handed Djokovic the set.

World number one Djokovic, though, was playing a different game, appearing little troubled by the howitzers coming off the giant Isner's racquet - breaking his opponent three times and not conceding a single break point on his own serve.

Having failed to convert break points in Isner's opening two service games, Djokovic made no mistake when another chance came along, belting a forehand return for a victor and a 4-2 lead.

His task now will be to avoid last year's let-down when, after beating Cilic on his debut match, he then lost to Roger Federer and Jack Sock to miss out on the semi-finals.

The net game always looked risky for Zverev and so it proved as he double-faulted to concede the set. "I saw he was with his family, I didn't have the opportunity to see him after the match, but I hope to see him at the end of the week", said the Serbian tennis player.

"I don't think it was breathtaking tennis from both of us, but a win is a win", said Djokovic.

Zverev looked deflated and despite holding serve for 1-1 he offered no more resistance as Djokovic won five games in a row.
