The stars of the tennis world are gracing London this week for the season-ending ATP Finals.

But how good are they at deciphering cockney rhyming slang?

The 36-year-old Swiss guaranteed himself a place in the last four of the Nitto ATP Finals at the 02 Arena when he saw off an initially vigorous challenge from Germany's Alex Zverev, who finally showed a British crowd what all the fuss is about.

While this has been an event shorn of some of the biggest names the quality of the matches has, so far, been better than in many recent years, and last night was no disappointment either.

World No. 3 Zverev, 20, has set tongues wagging having won five tournaments this year, including beating Federer in the final of the Rogers Cup in Canada.

Sock, who seized qualification by winning the final Masters event of the season in Paris, lost his debut match to Federer, but he is now 1-1.

Cilic, playing in his third ATP Finals, made the first breakthrough in the decider to help the Croatian move to a 3-0 lead but Sock recovered his composure to claim three games on the bounce, including a fourth break of Cilic's serve.

Meantime, five groups of injured people were transferred to the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Monday to receive further treatments. The head of the elite Revolutionary Guards, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said many older buildings collapsed.


Twice he had to save break and therefore set points in that 12th game, but Federer's unforced error count was unusually high, affording Zverev the freedom to swing for the fences.

Cilic looked set to come out on top when he claimed the first mini-break of the tie-break, but Sock showed incredible athleticism to dart in and guide away a victor after a Cilic shot struck the net cord and he won five points in a row to seal a hard-fought victory.

When Federer broke a frustrated Zverev at the start of the next set, the writing looked to be on the wall.

"It's definitely disappointing in both matches in that third set after being in a good position and putting myself in a good position".

Simultaneously, the players seemed to lift their level again and the speedy pace of the first set returned in the middle of the second. But there were three of them on this occasion and Federer could only save two of them.

The decider was sure to be one of attrition with both players looking less than fresh and Federer drew the first blood, given a sniff by a a double-fault before making Zverev save it, blocking a first serve back at 15-40 and watching a forehand drift wide.
