Novak Djokovic on battling for year-end No. 1 spot

Djokovic romps to victory in ATP Finals opener

Novak Djokovic began his quest for a record-equalling sixth ATP Finals title and sixth year-end number one spot on Sunday with an imperious 6-2, 6-1 victory against Italy's Matteo Berrettini.

The 32-year-old needs to reach the final of the season-ending showpiece to reclaim the number one spot from Nadal and match Pete Sampras's incredible record of finishing six separate seasons as the world's number one player.

The Swiss lost serve in the very first game after spraying a forehand error, pulling it back in the fourth game thanks to a forced mistake from the Austrian to level the score at 2-2.

He says, "No one seems to have any first-hand knowledge" and claims that, "Every one of those people canceled themselves out". He says if House investigators want to see a summary of the April 21 call, he's "happy to give it to them".

"There's no other reasonable explanation (to that reaction) than trying to play as ideal as possible", Djokovic said from London. "Earlier this year I had a great stay in London, and over the years I've played well in this arena". "It was not easy for him to be playing his first Tour Finals match and I knew he might be a bit nervous".

"I was fortunate to get the break midway through the first set". Roger got broken at love in the 11th game following a deep return from Thiem who fended off a couple of break chances with good first serves in the next game to convert the second match point with a service victor that carried him over the top.

Djokovic beat Roger Federer in a Wimbledon final for the ages in his last appearance in London, and the Serbian was swiftly into his rhythm against world number eight Berrettini.

Berrettini's forehand was responsible for 18 of those errors, including two shots into the net to hand Djokovic the two breaks of the first set.

Berrettini claimed a brilliant point in game two of the second set, managing to reach for a low backhand that Djokovic could only skew into the air, providing his opponent with a simple volley.

Another break for Djokovic followed, though Berrettini did capitalise on the only break point he was afforded.

Trump opposes public hearings during impeachment inquiry
The House issued a subpoena for Mulvaney on Thursday. "I don't like doing it because it's such a bad precedent", Trump said. Democrats have been releasing transcripts of the closed-door interviews as they prepare for the public hearings.

But it merely stalled Djokovic's process for a brief moment - Berrettini, who is renowned for his powerful serves, going 2-0 and a break down.
