    Points won by each set: | 32-28, 30-25 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    25 % Djokovic – 14 of 56
    27 % Federer – 16 of 59

    Djokovic [1] and Federer [3] co-created their third Year End Championship final (they played against each other for the second time) joining: Ivan Lendl vs John McEnroe (1982-84) & Lendl vs Boris Becker (1985-86 & 88)… Djokovic broke twice in the opening set, and once at 5:4 in the 2nd set when Federer committed a double fault facing second match point. “I’m obviously very proud to have these achievements with my team,” said Djokovic during the trophy ceremony. “It’s been a long season, but the best of my life. Without their support and my family, I wouldn’t be where I am. I’m just trying to cherish every moment at this level. As a kid growing up, you dream to be at tournaments like this and fighting for the biggest trophies in sport.”

    Djokovic’s route to his 5th ‘Masters’ title (4th in London):
    rr Kei Nishikori 6-1, 6-1
    rr Roger Federer 5-7, 2-6
    rr Tomas Berdych 6-3, 7-5
    S Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-3
    W Roger Federer 6-3, 6-4

    Djokovic had reached the final in 15 consecutive tournaments.
    Here’s a comparison of the Open Era best achievements:

    18 – Ivan Lendl (1981-82)
    17 – Roger Federer (2005-06)
    15 – Novak Djokovic (2015)
    13 – Guillermo Vilas (1977)
    11 – John McEnroe (1984)
