The second-positioned Serb beat Milos Raonic 7 (6), 7-6 (5) on Tuesday to fit the bill for the elimination rounds of the ATP finals and enhance his record against the Canadian to 8-0.Djokovic is 2-0 at the season-finishing competition and will retake the top positioning from Andy Murray on the off chance that he improves this week. Murray is 1-0 in this way and plays his second match on Wednesday against Kei Nishikori.
Djokovic never took a gander calm in his second match at the O2 Arena, yet he could hold tight through two extreme sudden death rounds to procure the victory."It truly could have gone in any case," said Djokovic, who finished a profession Grand Slam by winning the French Open this year. "I was down right on time in both tiebreaks today evening time. In any case, I just figured out how to remain conferred and put weight on his second serves."
To get to the sudden death rounds, Djokovic spared three break focuses on the main set. He then figured out how to go up a break twice in the second set, however, Raonic reached every time. Raonic, who achieved the Wimbledon last this year, led the pack in both sudden death rounds as Djokovic battled for consistency, however, he couldn't hold on."I gave myself a few possibilities there. He played well in a large portion of those odds," said Raonic, who can in any case progress to the elimination rounds by beating Dominic Thiem on Thursday. "Here and there us tennis players, we battle to overlook. Yet, that is the main thing I must do at this moment."

In his opening match on Sunday, Thiem lost to Djokovic subsequent to winning the principal set. In the second arrangement of that match, he was blanked 6-0."I attempted to keep away from the misstep I did in the principal match, to drop a tiny bit. Didn't generally happen that great," Thiem said. "Be that as it may, I was attempting to remain extreme in the third set."He got some help this time, however.
In spite of the fact that Monfils enhanced in the second set, winning every one of the three of his break focuses on driving a decider, his administration amusement never truly went ahead. In the last round of the match, the Frenchman gave it away with three of his five twofold blames. "It was an extreme one," said Monfils, who is as yet recouping from a rib harm that constrained him out of the Paris Masters toward the end of a month ago. "I think I didn't play an incredible match, however, I gave all that I had."Because of his harm, Monfils said he may haul out of his last match against Djokovic.
