Federer fends off Zverev to reach semis — ATP Finals

Federer richest sportsman

David Goffin of Belgium plays a return to Roger Federer of Switzerland during their ATP World Tour Finals semifinal tennis match at the O2 Arena in London Saturday Nov. 18 2017

Meanwhile, Cilic slumped to 1-8 career at the ATP Finals event, going 0-3 this year.

Federer will have a day of rest Friday before returning on Saturday in the semifinals to face either David Goffin or Dominic Thiem.

Federer beat Sock in three sets to give his ATP World Tour Finals campaign the perfect start.

Federer was asked if he would be competing in the Davis Cup, a competition that hasn't seen him since 2015, with the journalist letting the reigning Wimbledon champion know that he is required to feature in two matches before the next Olympics if he wants to compete.

Goffin, feather-light on his feet, struck a backhand volley so perfectly it left his famous opponent rooted to the spot, 10 yards from the ball - and the perpetrator could not resist raising his thin right arm and bowing to the four sides of Court Suzanne Lenglen, drinking in the applause.

Goffin pummelled his good friend Dominic Thiem to advance, but now faces the daunting task of facing tournament favourite Federer.

Goffin avoided that humiliation, holding serve in the 10th game, but the cheers that accompanied that feat were out of sympathy not expectation that a contest might be about to start.

Alexander Zverev has vowed to use the frustration of his ATP Finals exit as fuel to build on his breakthrough year when he returns to action in 2018.

'I was in trouble at a set and a break point down, but I got myself out of it'. Federer's most recent title - in Basel last month - also took him past Novak Djokovic as the all-time prize money leader in tennis.

"It will be a tough match, so nice to play a semi against him", said Goffin. But that's okay. I'm going to go on holidays now. After beginning the 2017 season as a Big 12 dark horse, Kansas State has fallen to 5-5, thanks in large part to a five-game stretch earlier in the year in which the Wildcats fell to Vanderbilt, Texas, TCU and Oklahoma.

The group stage of the tournament concludes with the match between Bulgaria's Grigor Dmitrov, who has already qualified, and Rafael Nadal's replacement Pablo Carreño Busta of Spain this evening. "Who knows what it is", he added further.

'It's kind of been my theme in the last few weeks to hang in there.
