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 US Open champion Andy Murray 7-6 6-2. The top-ranked Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro 4-6 6-3 6-2.
