Djokovic Defeats Wawrinka to Set Showdown With Nadal

WTF SF - Djokovic

In his most convincing win of this ATP World Tour Finals, the Serbian Novak Djokovic beat Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland to set up the final that most had anticipated, with Rafael Nadal having won his semifinal earlier in the day.

The 28-year-old Swiss has been enjoying the most successful year of his career, and was making his debut at the ATP World Tour Finals.  He came out looking to start strong, threatening Djokovic’s first serve, and breaking his second. But the Serbian broke back immediately, and then seemed to kick things up a notch to counter any significant threats that Wawrinka threw at him.  In the end, Djokovic blew past him, 6-3, 6-3.

The final will be played in London’s O2 Arena tomorrow at 8pm GMT.  It will be the 38th meeting between Djokovic and Nadal, a record, and their sixth match of 2013.  Nadal leads on the year 3-2, though the most recent win went to the Serb.
