Novak Delighted With Opening ATP Tour Finals Win Sports pundit

Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have both won their opening matches at the ATP Tour Finals in London.

Djokovic got past Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 6-3 while Murray was too good for Tomas Berdych 3-6 6-3 6-4.

“It’s a pleasure to play here once again. I was really looking forward to it because we always enjoy the atmosphere,” Djokovic said.

“It’s the last tournament of the year so we both wanted to win. It means a lot. Especially here, there are no easy matches and no favourites.

“You just want to do your best and give the crowd something to cheer about.”

Meanwhile, Murray’s triumph was his first on British soil since his US Open triumph.

In Tuesday’s games, world number one Roger Federer takes on Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic, while David Ferrer and Juan Martin del Potro also meet.
