As usual, Roger Federer is looking to add to one of his many records. And as many expected, Novak Djokovic will be trying to stop him.
The top two players in the world advanced to the championship match at the ATP finals on Sunday, each looking beatable early before turning things around.
Federer, a six-time champion at the season-ending event, advanced by beating U.S. Open champion Andy Murray 7-6 (5), 6-2. The top-ranked Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
"I knew that if I lose today it's the end of the season, so I gave everything I had and couldn't be more happy," Federer said on court after the match.
The ATP finals is the last tournament of the season, and Federer will face Djokovic in the final match on Monday at the O2 Arena.
