Alexander Zverev became the first German to reach the last four at the ATP Finals for 15 years when he beat American John Isner 7-6 (5) 6-3 on Friday at the O2 Arena.

The 21-year-old opted for a tight opening before winning the eighth game of the other, which closed on his second victory in the Gustavo Kuerten group, and then moved to a semi-final match against six-time champion Roger Federer.

His victory meant that the other winners of the day were among the winners of the Novak Djoković and Marin Cilic team in the group – in addition to the points classification and US $ 200,000 for each victory in a slave circle at the end of the year.

Zverev became the first German in the semi-finals of the event since Rainer Schuettler lost in the last four years to Andre Agassi in 2003 in Houston.
World number 10, Isner, still has anchored hopes to reach the semifinals despite the loss of the first two games.

Winning victory and victory for Djokovic later I would have seen him crash at the end of the week.

When he leveled the tiebreak to 5-5 with a throttled neck, this can still be seen, but Zverev responded with an extremely improvised jump to the next point before Isner turned his forhand into the net.

Despite his hopes, Isner stalled his task with another task, but Zverev still needed a victory to be convinced of his semi-final berth, which won with him at the 56th race of the year.

Zverev, the head of the next generation of players, who is expected to dominate the game in the coming years, is the youngest semi-final player on the tournament, with Juan Martin del Potro reaching the finals in London in 2009.

No matter what happens in the second match, South Africa's Kevin Anderson will play in the second semi-final on Saturday.
