AS USUAL, Roger Federer is looking to add to one of his many records. And as many expected, Novak Djokovic will be trying to stop him.

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.
