ATP- Roger Federer got back on track at the ATP Finals, beating Matteo Berrettini 7-6 (2), 6-3 on Tuesday for his first victory of the round-robin stage.
Federer lost his opening match to Dominic Thiem on Sunday but the six-time champion looked sharper against Berrettini, never dropping his serve and hitting 24 winners.
In the tiebreaker, Berrettini double-faulted to hand Federer a 5-2 lead and netted a forehand rebound on set point.
Federer broke Berrettini to open the second set, but had to overcome a slight wobble at 4-3. He broke again to seal the win when Berrettini netted a forehand.
The Italian is making his first appearance at the season-ending event for the world’s top eight players. But mistakes have hurt him in both matches, as he finished with 27 unforced errors against Federer – only one fewer than against Djokovic.
