ATP Finals: Federer fends off Zverev to reach semis

Roger Federer at the 2017 Nitto ATP World Tour Finals London

And a frustrating match for the world number four came to a fitting end as Goffin wrapped things up by giving a poor second serve the appropriate treatment with a return to which Thiem could not respond to clinch second spot in Group Pete Sampras.

The sixth seed stormed to a 6-0, 6-2 win against World No.7 Goffin in only 74 minutes, joining six-time victor Roger Federer as the only two singles players who secured semifinal places on Wednesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I started to feel the ball better at the end of the first set, so I wanted to be more aggressive". According to Forbes.com, the victory took Federer's career earnings to $110 235 682, surpassing Woods' tally of $110 061 012.

"I don't know what to say".

Sock had an 80% record on service games won coming into this match and he attacked this game with no less muster and sealed the first set 6-4.

"I think in the beginning I was slightly overaggressive in the first set on some crucial points rather than maybe being patient". Today was like the last month, I guess. It paid off. I started to serve well. A shot through the legs by Sock in the fourth game - be it laziness or his "showtime" alter ego it isn't quite clear - either way it looked as though Sock was losing his focus and fell quickly to 4-0 down in the second.

David Cassidy Hospitalized In Critical Condition
We're told David was rushed to a Florida hospital 3 days ago. and his condition has been worsening since his admission. Cassidy starred in the beloved "Partridge" series from 1970-1974, and the role made him a popular teen idol.

Goffin needed just the one break in both the second and third sets and displayed a previously unseen grit to deny Federer his lone break point opportunities in either set. "He served well", he added.

Having already secured qualification with wins over Thiem and Goffin, Dimitrov later plays his final round-robin match against Pablo Carreno Busta. Swiss defeated David in all 6 previous meetings but it wasn't the case today, with Goffin scoring a remarkable 2-6 6-3 6-4 triumph in an hour and 45 minutes, reaching his 11th and by far the biggest ATP final in his career.

"So we've seen some swing of momentums in a lot of the matches this week". This one's going to be another one.

"Of course, the US Open was very painful".

The world number two had never lost to his opponent and all seemed to be going to plan as Federer cruised through the first set. "I'm just so humbled to be able to play the final tomorrow".
