Novak Djokovic secures ATP World Tour finals place

Novak Djokovic has become the first player to qualify for the 2011 ATP World Tour finals following his win in Sunday's Rome Masters.

The Serb, who is unbeaten in 2011, beat Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-4 in the final after defeating Andy Murray in the last four.


He is only the second man after Nadal in 2009 to qualify for the finals before the French Open.


Ajde Nole!!!!

He qualified once he reached the semis in Rome. The ATP just didn't realize that or ignored it.

Re: Novak Djokovic secures ATP World Tour finals place

I think by qualifying for WTF, there will be too much pressure on him.

He should have tanked all his matches this year starting with Rome quarters.

There is no finish top 20 rule. It's straight-up top 8 now.

Congrats, but .... like Certinfy already said.
