Ferrer beats Djokovic at ATP Finals

Ferrer's relentless hitting proved too much for Djokovic on Wednesday, giving the fifth-seeded Spaniard a 6-3, 6-1 win and a spot in the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals.

"I think today maybe was my best match of the season," Ferrer said.

The exact opposite was true for Djokovic. The winner of three Grand Slams and 10 titles overall this season looked far from the player who dominated most of 2011, and lost for only the fifth time this year.

His body already aching after a season of almost unceasing success, Novak Djokovic ran into a brick wall in David Ferrer.

Starting when he was ahead 3-2 in the first set, the slumping Serb lost seven straight games. He made 33 unforced errors, exactly three times as many as Ferrer.

Djokovic can still advance to the semifinals if he beats fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic on Friday, but he isn't hopeful.

"If I don't play at least 50 percent better than I did tonight, I don't think I'll have any chance," he said. "You always hope that tomorrow will bring something better. That's the way I'm thinking now."
