Despite his win, this was Cilic’s last match of the year as he was eliminated from the Finals. Nishikori, however, advanced to the semifinals as this loss didn’t affect his standing in his group. He play Novak Djokovic on Saturday. Djokovic is 10-2 in their head-to-head.
In the other semifinal match, Andy Murray faces Milos Raonic. Murray leads 8-3 in their head-2-head. Murray and Djokovic are battling for the year-end No. 1, which will be decided this weekend.
