Novak Djokovic reaches ATP Finals last four after defeating Alexander Zverev

Published

Tennis icon and world number one, Novak Djokovic beat Alexander Zverev 6-3 7-6(4) on Friday to seal a last-four spot in the London ATP finals.

The 33-year-old Serb will face U.S. Open champion Dominic Thiem in Saturday’s semi-final while Rafael Nadal plays Daniil Medvedev as tennis fans brace for an expected mouth watering clash between Nadal and Djokovic in the finals.

Djokovic was defeated by Russian Daniil Medvedev in his group on Wednesday so he needed to beat Germany’s Zverev to avoid a group stage exit, which he did comfortably.

Sunday’s final will end the tournament’s memorable 12-year stay in London before it re-locates to Turin.

“In contrast to the match against Daniil I found the right shots at the right time,” he said. “I have tremendous respect for Sascha, a great player and not easy to return 140mph first serves. It was anybody’s game for most of the match.”

Djokovic wants to equal Roger Federer’s record of six ATP Finals titles, while Nadal seeks a first ATP finals title in his career.

Arsenal news live: Szoboszlai to make final decision, Eriksen’s claim, Gunners want Ozcan

Published

Arsenal news and gossip is coming in thick and fast and Sportarena is on hand to bring you all the very latest from Emirates stadium.


Dominik Szoboszlai development

Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai is reportedly to make final decision over his future in the next one or two weeks.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks with both Rb Leipzig and AC Milan also interested in signing the Hungarian international in January transfer window.

And according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, claim the 20-year-old is yet to make final decision over his future with both Arsenal and Rb Leipzig battle over the signature of talented playmaker.

Fabrizio Romano was speaking on the Here We Go podcast (via This is Futbol ), where he provided an update on the Hungary international, who has been in fine form with Red Bull Salzburg this season.

‘Get ready because, I think in one or two weeks, we will have the final decision [of] Dominik Szoboszlai. There are a lot of clubs working to sign him, we said about Arsenal [being] interested, but he’s not the only option – also [Houssem] Aouar, also many others, so he’s not the only option,’ Romano explained.

‘We also said about AC Milan – that many times they were in contact last summer with his agents and there are also other clubs. [Red Bull] Leipzig, for sure – obviously, with Salzburg, they have a direct link, but other clubs are looking at the situation.’

Christian Eriksen’s Inter stance

Arsenal target Christian Eriksen is unwilling to leave Inter Milan on loan in January, according to Italian outlet Tuttosport.

The 28-year-old playmaker left Tottenham Hotspur in January to make the switch to the Italian giants, but life at the San Siro hasn’t quite gone to plan for the Denmark international – who has been linked with a move to the Gunners.

The ex-Spurs star appears not to have a long-term future with Antonio Conte’s side, but a loan move away now appears unlikely in January transfer window.

This means if Mikel Arteta was to bring the 28-year-old to the Emirates Stadium, then he may need some funds provided by the club’s owners.

Arsenal want new Ozil

Arsenal have reportedly interesting in signing Istanbul Basaksehir playmaker Berkay Ozcan, who compared with Mesut Ozil.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has impressed since his move from Hamburg, and has broken into the Turkish national side.

And according to The Sun reports that Mikel Arteta’s side have been tracking him since his spell at Stuttgart and they prepare to launch a bid for the attacking midfielder.

My white hair has nothing to do with stress – Jose Mourinho

Published

on

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has no intention of retiring as a coach any time soon, with the Portuguese tactician stating that he could have 10 to 15 years left in his career.

One of the most successful and respected trainers in the game, Mourinho has won trophies in every country he has worked and could be forgiven for a loss of motivation after amassing such an impressive haul of silverware.

The 57-year-old insists that is not the case, however, with his mission to deliver glory at Spurs just the latest task on his agenda as he plans to continue plying his trade potentially into his 70s.

“I’m 57, very young in relation to my job, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I have 10-15 years ahead of me,” Mourinho said at Web Summit, the world’s largest annual tech conference.

“There is a difference between success and a successful career. I always believe that there is a huge difference. Success is a moment. Success can be related with your talent, but can be just the fact you are in a certain place in the right moment, in the right time.

“Another thing is a successful career, which is based on year after year after year, I always wanted that kind of career. It’s part of my DNA. If I love what I do, if I feel fresh, it’s motivation, I always like to take players into a different dimension.

“I know that people probably don’t think this about me but I consider myself a very humble person, I always try to learn, I always try to be better and this is a kind of job where experience only can make us better. I really believe today I’m much better than I was 10 or 20 years ago.

“Everybody says my career is long, which is true, but I don’t see the end. I feel exactly the same passion, the same desire to learn every day. I think it’s just a pleasure. My white hair for sure has nothing to do with a stressful job!”
