Zverev aims to build on breakthrough season

Although the Red Raiders will be afforded one final opportunity for a winnable game to conclude the season against Texas, losing to the Horned Frogs would leave Texas Tech with minimal momentum after five losses in six games.

Belgium's David Goffin stormed into the semi-finals of the Association of Tennis Professionals World Tour Finals with a comfortable straight sets victory over Dominic Thiem in London.

Federer was asked if he would be competing in the Davis Cup, a competition that hasn't seen him since 2015, with the journalist letting the reigning Wimbledon champion know that he is required to feature in two matches before the next Olympics if he wants to compete.

Bidding to become the youngest Tour Finals semi-finalist since Rafael Nadal in 2006, the 20-year-old was bundled out by Jack Sock as the American eighth seed claimed a surprise 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 victory to snatch second place in the Boris Becker group.

Sock leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head series 3-1, including a three-set fight earlier this year at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells in which Sock saved four match points, including three consecutive, to advance. But Dimitrov continued to press him, charging the net and winning most of the points.

Goffin, who was coming off the back of a 74-minute thrashing by Dimitrov, was this time able to recover from another slow start. Sometimes you have to let your frustration out and it worked I guess.

Roger Federer isn't thinking about a return trip to the No. 1 ranking in the world. Texas Tech will need to in hopes of avoiding a potentially disastrous end to what once appeared to be a promising season.

Croft also joined in the debate and the former British No 1 believes Goffin must up his levels "a few degrees" in order to stay competitive against the world No 2. This one's going to be another one. "I will try to do my best to play a better match than in Basel, for sure".

But that's not Federer's motivation.

Nadal's opponent in the French Open final, Stan Wawrinka, had beaten him in their only major final encounter (the 2014 Australian Open) and had won in Paris before (in 2015).

Thiem had little to show for his efforts but a graze on his left knee.
