NOVAK Djokovic won the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals after a thrilling victory over six-time champion Roger Federer at the O2 in London last night.

World No1 Djokovic was victorious in straight sets but was pushed all the way by Federer in a high-quality final.

Federer got off to a flying start but Djokovic hit back and took the opening set 8-6 on a tie-break. And then won the match’s last four games to take the second set 7-5.

It was only the fourth time the top two players in the world have played in the final since the inaugural tournament in 1970.

Earlier Spanish sixth seeds Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez who knocked out Sheffield’s Jonny Marray and partner Freddie Nielsen from the doubles semi-final on Sunday beat fifth-seeded Indians Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna 7-5, 3-6, 10-3 in the final.
