, winning 11 of 24 Grand Slam singles titles. For context, consider the other 13 major winners over the past half-dozen years: R Antworten

In the cat-and-mouse game of postmatch interviews in London, Novak Djokovic has been driven to testiness on several occasions when questioned closely. After defeating Milos Raonic in a round-robin match earlier this week, he was asked if there were times in the past when he felt unbeatable -- and if he now felt more vulnerable.Well, I never felt unbeatable, and I never will, Djokovic said. First of all, its not my mindset. Second, I dont think its fair to say youre unbeatable. There are few athletes ever in their career that have retired unbeatable.I did have certain periods of my career, especially in the last five years, when I really felt very confident on the court, and I was dominating the play.What about vulnerable?I dont feel vulnerable, Djokovic snapped.Heading into the last mens ATP match of the year, he looks like something approaching unbeatable. As difficult as it is to fathom given his second-half results, the No. 2-ranked Djokovic is a single victory from regaining the No. 1 ranking.He meets old friend and recent nemesis Andy Murray in the championship final of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN2 & WatchESPN. For the first-time in year-end history, the seasons No.1 ranking will be decided in a winner-take-all final.It would be an unprecedented fifth consecutive year-end title for the 29-year-old Serb in a year when he won at least seven titles for the fourth consecutive year and two of the four majors this year.Does this sound like a vulnerable man?Djokovic obliterated Kei Nishikori 6-1, 6-1 in Saturdays second semifinal. The match was over in a blazing 66 minutes and couldnt have been more different than the first semifinal.That exquisite piece of performance art was a 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (9) Murray victory against Milos Raonic.Very glad, obviously, that I get to experience that [dominance] the last couple matches, Djokovic said in his on-court interview. Pretty much flawless.Murray, meanwhile, looked world-weary at times and saved a match point in that extraordinary third-set tiebreaker. The question must be asked: Does Murray have anything left for Djokovic?Three days earlier, Murray and Nishikori played a 3-hour, 20-minute match -- the longest three-set match in the history of the year-end event. Saturdays epic ran a scintillating 3 hours, 38 minutes, which turns out to be the longest three-set match of the 2016 season.Thats a lot of mileage this close to the finish line.I dont know how Ill feel tomorrow, Murray said after the match. Obviously, tired just now because it was a really hard match. It wasnt just that it was physically hard, it was mentally a tough match, too.It was pretty stressful.Murray, who made the one-hour commute to his suburban home when he played day matches, will be staying at a Thames-side hotel. After the match, he immersed himself in an ice bath, stretched and had a massage from his physio. Murray said hed go through another round of recovery and try to sleep in as late as possible. Hes scheduled to practice at 2:30 local time, 3? hours before the final.Murray, riding an enormous wave of momentum, has won 22 consecutive matches, matching his career high set earlier this year.But his personal on-court history with Djokovic -- they first met 18 years ago in junior tennis -- is not terribly pleasant. Djokovic has a commanding 24-10 record in their head-to-head matches, and upon closer examination, its even more lopsided in recent years.After Murray broke through with his first Grand slam singles title at the 2012 US Open, Djokovic held an 8-7 advantage. Since then, the Serb has won 16 of 19, including the finals of the two majors hes won this year, the Australian Open and French Open.And theres this delicious symmetry: After beating Murray in four sets to win the long-sought-after career Grand Slam in Paris, Djokovic lost his way. Here, he has a chance to beat Murray again, finish the season on a breathtaking high and set himself up for the 2017 season.Since the beginning of 2011, Djokovic has dominated mens tennis, winning 11 of 24 Grand Slam singles titles. For context, consider the other 13 major winners over the past half-dozen years: Rafael Nadal (5), Stan Wawrinka and Murray (3 each), and Roger Federer and Marin Cilic (1 each).In that span, the only time Djokovic finished with the No. 2 year-end ranking was 2013, when Nadal won two Slams. Djokovic regained the top spot the following summer after winning Wimbledon, and for 122 weeks, he did not relinquish it. That glorious run ended two weeks ago in Paris, when Murray -- after slowly reeling Djokovic in following Roland Garros -- took the No. 1 ranking for the very first time.In this year-end event that is without Federer and Nadal, its appropriate these two are in the final with so much at stake. They are the best in mens tennis, and it seems likely they could continue their dominance for a few more years.Hopefully, we can have a good final, Djokovic told the pro-Murray crowd. Its really a privilege to be part of this history with Andy. There are two of us on the court.Lets try to enjoy the occasion.

Making a national comeback has been Salman Butts most difficult quest since being suspended for five years after an ICC tribunal had found him guilty of spot-fixing in the 2010 Lords Test.Having returned to first-class cricket in 2016, after completing a rehabilitation programme chalked up by the PCB, Butt struck his third century of the season - 125 off 234 balls, including 18 boundaries - to give WAPDA the first-innings advantage after Mohammad Asifs four-wicket haul dismissed Habib Bank Limited for 236 in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy final in Karachi.For Butt its not just about form and fitness; its about winning back the fans, who were hurt after the spot-fixing scandal. During his isolation he was living in denial. Not because he wasnt guilty, but to protect his self-esteem in public. Ultimately, he had to break down.Butt has become more religious now, and hopes to do things right to re-start his international career. He took a significant step in reminding the selectors that his potential is still intact, in the title bout on Sunday, batting for 366 minutes and showcasing the versatility in his game. His first fifty came off 75 balls, including 10 fours. He then held his shots back and took 103 balls for his second fifty. His innings ended when he was run out by an inch in the 80th over.Butts career seemed to be over when he was banned for five years, but he continues to keep knocking on the doors by the sheer weight of his performances. He had scored 536 runs at an average of 107 in the National One-Day Cup last year. In the subsequent ODI tournament in April-May 2016, he managed just 135 runs in five innings. In the shortest format he hit form again, finishing the National T20 Cup as the second-highest run-getter with 350 runs in eight innings. He has now hit 636 runs in 10 matches at an average of 42.40 in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. MMohammad Amir has been successfully re-integrated into the national set-up, but there seems to be some reluctance from the PCB in the case of both Butt and Asif.dddddddddddd The board isnt ready to pick them yet in the national squad, and wants them to play more domestic cricket.I am knocking very hard on selectors doors, Butt said after the second days play. I dont want to break [down] but I want to keep myself fit and keep my form alive. With my wisdom, I am trying best with the best of my intention. Being selected isnt my choice, its them [the selectors] who have to decide. I have a wish and always want to be in every squad. I have the capacity but that is something the selectors have to tell and decide.Pakistans Test squad is currently in Brisbane, preparing for the three-Test series against Australia, starting December 15. Butt, who has made 505 runs in six Test matches in Australia, including two hundreds, at an average of 42.08, urged Pakistan to be strong on the back foot in challenging conditions down under.Its difficult to foresee the result. Australia arent the same team, and Pakistan dont have the same set of players either, he said. And by playing a lot of cricket in the UAE, Pakistans batsmen are used to playing on the front foot. They block themselves from playing their shots because the pitches are very slow there [in the UAE]; in Australia this is not going to happen. The ball will bounce and seam more as well, so playing on the back foot will be more helpful.But at the same time, developing the technique overnight wont be easy and you can survive by only scoring freely. I dont know if they will mange to turn things their way by playing slowly there, but that has never happened in Australia.
