Roger Federer snapped Novak Djokovic's 23-match winning streak on Tuesday night to reach the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals.It was the most eagerly awaited match of the group stages at London's O2 Arena and the capacity crowd of mostly Federer fans went home very happy after watching the Swiss upset the world number one 7-5, 6-2.Djokovic had only lost a single set since beating Federer to win the US Open in September, while this was his first defeat indoors since 2012.There was plenty at stake for Federer in his 43rd meeting with Djokovic, not least supremacy in their head-to-head record. The pair were tied at 21 apiece and a win for Djokovic, who is bidding for a fourth straight title, would have taken him ahead for the first time.But the 28-year-old looked unusually flat and, once Federer had claimed the decisive break to win the opening set, a comeback never looked on the cards.Djokovic is still in a good position to reach the last four, with a straight-sets win against Tomas Berdych, who lost to Kei Nishikori in the earlier match, tomorrow enough to put him through.
