- Serb overcomes Norwegian 7-5, 6-3 in final in Turin
- Djokovic equals Roger Federer’s record for ATP Finals titles
Novak Djokovic defeated Casper Ruud in straight sets to secure the Nitto ATP Finals title for a record-equalling sixth time in Turin. The Serb was pushed all the way by Ruud but eventually won the title 7-5, 6-3.
Ruud saved two break points in his first service game of the opening set to hold but it set the tone for the match, with the Norwegian regularly forced on to the back foot. There were a number of lengthy rallies during the game, including 36 shots in the final one to set up a championship point for Djokovic who then clinched the title with an ace.
