Ferrer said: “Maybe it’s my best match this season. I enjoyed it a lot tonight.”

David Ferrer followed up his victory over Andy Murray by thrashing an out-of-sorts Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-1 to reach the semi-finals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London. In many ways the world number five had been the outsider in Group A prior to the start of the O2 tournament and his win over Murray was overshadowed by the Scot’s subsequent withdrawal through injury. This setback was only Djokovic’s fifth defeat of the season but it really looked like his amazing year had caught up with him and he will now need to beat fellow Serbian Janko Tipsarevic on Friday to be sure of a place in the last four. Ferrer said: “Maybe it’s my best match this season. I enjoyed it a lot tonight. He was maybe a little bit tired and made some mistakes but I didn’t make any mistakes. This tournament is very important to me.”

The Spaniard had beaten Djokovic four times in their 10 meetings, but three of those had come on his favoured clay. The one time he did have success on indoor courts came at this tournament four years ago, though, when he went on to reach the final.
