Novak Djokovic beats Matteo Berrettini in opening match of ATP Finals in London

Novak Djokovic made a winning start at the ATP Finals as he chases a record-equalling sixth title that will see him return to world number one.

The Serb was imperious, beating Italian eighth seed Matteo Berrettini 6-2 6-1.

World number two Djokovic can overtake Rafael Nadal to become year-end number one this week in London but must reach the final to stand a chance.

Roger Federer plays Dominic Thiem in the same group later on Sunday at the season-ending championships.

The event at the O2 Arena features the top eight players of the year who are split into two groups.

The group stage is a round-robin format with the top two players progressing to the semi-finals with the final held next Sunday.

Nadal is in Group Andre Agassi but is an injury doubt for the tournament with a stomach muscle issue, although the Spaniard said on Friday he is confident of playing against Alexander Zverev in his opener on Monday.
