Berrettini makes history with Thiem win in London

"I performed unbelievable and I knew I needed to as a result of that is what Novak does". It was a privilege to play that match, so many ups and downs.

'He was the better player in all aspects, ' said the Serb.

Djokovic is the strong market favourite at [1.38] to progress and I think that this looks a little short, although not to the extent of Thiem in that opening match today. From his end, I think he did everything right. I'm excited to see how he's going to play tonight, as well. I couldn't read his serve well. "Just a pretty bad match from my side".

"He played in the first round against Hungary in Frankfurt the beginning of the year, and he did his bit and he's won his points".

When Djokovic did belatedly muster a break point in the fourth game of the second set, it only spurred Federer to new heights. "I'm sure at some point this year I felt great. Maybe even Basel because I ran through the tournament there", he added, referring to the title in his hometown last month. From my end, I just - you know, I was just playing too neutral.

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic will represent Serbia alongside Dusan Lajovic against South Africa, Chile and France in Group A.

Federer and Djokovic will battle it out in the second session for the right to join Thiem in advancing from Group Bjorn Borg in London.

The huge-hitting Austrian lost his flawless record, however, falling to Matteo Berrettini in Thursday's day session at the O2 Arena, 7-6 (7-3) 6-3. Dominic Thiem has been supreme in our group, made life hard for both of us, and made it so that it was victor goes through.

Nadal takes on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the other group on Friday and should he win and Alexander Zverev lose to Daniil Medvedev, it would set up a Nadal versus Federer semi-final. However, Berrettini raced out to a 6-1 lead in the tiebreaker and converted his third set point with an ace.

Thursday wasn't almost as dramatic.

Federer had played down talk of revenge when asked about his impending clash with Djokovic, but his victory celebration showed exactly what it meant.

Eight teams - with up to five players each - will emerge from the round-robin stage to compete in the knockout phase in Sydney until one is left standing, with ties comprising two singles and one doubles match.

Federer was always knocking on the door, starting the second set with a couple of chances to break before finding himself in the position of saving a break point.
