Dominic Thiem stunned Novak Djokovic to become the first player into the semi-finals at the ATP Finals in London.

The win means Thiem is now the first player to ever beat both Djokovic and Federer in the ATP Finals round robin after beating the Swiss maestro in his opening match.
Earlier, Federer put himself back into the mix at the end-of-season event with a 7-6 (7/2), 6-3 win against Italian debutant Matteo Berrettini in their round-robin clash.
Federer and Djokovic will face off on in a repeat of the Wimbledon final to determine who else will progress from Group Bjorn Borg.
n a captivating first set lasting more than an hour, Djokovic, last year’s beaten finalist, drew first blood, breaking in the fourth game, but Thiem responded immediately, breaking back with a rasping backhand down the line.
Neither player managed to force another break and the set went to a tie-break, which Djokovic, a five-time ATP Finals champion, edged 7-5.
Undaunted, Thiem broke his opponent at the first opportunity in the second set and, with Djokovic’s error count climbing, went on to level the match.
Thiem then broke in the first game of the deciding set and stayed strong to hold under severe pressure.

The Austrian won a thriller 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 7-6 (7-5) to advance, ensuring Djokovic and Roger Federer will fight for the other place when they meet in their final group match on Thursday.
Federer, who had lost his opening round-robin match to Thiem on Sunday, had earlier got his campaign on track.
He beat Italy's Matteo Berrettini 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 to keep alive his hopes.
The results set up an enticing winner-takes-all battle between 16-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic and 20-time major winner Federer, who played out an epic Wimbledon final in July that the Serb eventually won.
The top two players in each group after the round-robin stage progress to Saturday's semi-finals.
The event, which is taking place in London for the penultimate year, features the top eight male players of 2019.
