Novak saved four match points in the second set and led 4-0 in the third set tie-break, but haven't made it into the Nitto ATP Finals championship match. Dominic Thiem clinched a 7-5, 6-7 (10), 7-6 (5) win in three hours. The Serbian star has enjoyed another exceptional season, capturing four titles, and has finished as world no.1 for the sixth time in the past 10 years.
Novak will receive the 2018 year-end ATP World Tour no.1 trophy this Sunday at The O2. He has also been selected by fellow players as the Comeback Player of the Year following his historic return from elbow surgery and a no.22 ATP Ranking in June to clinch year-end no. 1
