Novak Djokovic's incredible gesture for chauffeur at ATP Finals

Novak Djokovic has produced an amazing gesture for the man who’s been driving him around London for the ATP Finals.

After his victory over Kevin Anderson in the semi-finals on Sunday, Djokovic took to social media with a shout-out for his driver.

The World No.1 posted a photo of himself and the chauffeur, who was holding a large silver trophy.

“Imran Bashir (my chauffer for the #NittoATPFinals) has been part of #TeamDjokovic for 10 years!” Djokovic wrote.

“He is also a famous batsman for his local cricket team.

“He received this trophy for best batsman of the year and we need to get it out there!”


But Djokovic wasn’t done there, going one step further by sending another message to the England cricket team and coach Trevor Bayliss.

“You should keep your eye on Imran,” he wrote.

“I think he is a strong candidate for your team.”


The tweets immediately went viral, with the ATP and ICC both getting involved.



Djokovic’s luck runs out in final

An inspired Alexander Zverev beat world No.1 Djokovic 6-4 6-3 to win the ATP Finals on Monday, the biggest title of the German’s fledgling career.

The 21-year-old broke serve once in the opening set and three times in the second to pull off a shock victory in a packed 02 Arena, denying Djokovic a record-equalling sixth title at the ATP’s blue-riband event.

Djokovic was a firm favourite having looked unbeatable all week, not dropping a set or even a service game, but 24 hours after being booed following a semi-final win over Roger Federer, Zverev had the crowd drooling over an audacious display.

Zverev is the first German to win the title since Boris Becker in Frankfurt in 1995 and the youngest since Djokovic won at the same age in Shanghai in 2008.

“I really can’t describe it. It’s the biggest title I’ve won in my career,” said Zverev.

“Novak has been incredible and he’s barely lost a match but I’m glad you lost one to me today.”
