The grand finale will take place after 15 and may be followed by the ESPN cable signal.

Against Anderson, who finished the best season of his career at age 32, the Serbian suffered in no time. The South African giant (2.03 meters) also had a chance to enter on a night when he could not rely on his best weapon (55% of the first balls in total).

Djokovic had two break points per set to take the game in 1 hour and 15 minutes, without breaking more than necessary.

"I am very happy to play at the highest level in the last five or six months and I am happy to reach a final again," said the player who accumulated in the second half of the year 35 victories and only two defeats. The Serbian is going to get the crown of his sixth master today.
