ATP World Tour Finals—London, England

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic capped off a sensational year on Monday in London, defeating defending champion and six-time former winner Roger Federer to claim the ATP World Tour Finals title.

Dismissing Federer 7-6(6), 7-5, Djokovic failed to close out the first set when serving at 5-4, but regained his form to take the crucial opening set. Trailing 3-1 in set two, Djokovic once again upped his return game and back-court defense to even the set before prevailing. Capturing his sixth title of 2012 and second World Tour Finals trophy, Djokovic improved to 75-12 on the year and drew his head-to-head with Federer to 13-16 for the second seed.

Taking home $1,760,000 for his victory, Djokovic will now head into 2013 the favorite to three-peat at the Australian Open.

For Federer, his stellar year included seven titles, a Wimbledon crown, and over 300 weeks as the No. 1 player in the world.
