Federer keen for Australian Open after shocking ATP defeat

ATP Finals 2017 prize money: How much money do you make for winning the season-ending tournament?

In the end, though, Grigor Dimitrov has shown that he might yet make good on that obvious promise, claiming the biggest prize of his career at the age of 26.

Grigor Dimitrov came from a set down to beat Jack Sock 4-6 6-0 6-3 and reach the decider of the ATP Finals.

"I'm just looking forward to some time off now, away from the match court, away from the pressure, then hopefully play well in Australia", the 36-year-old said.

"Match after match, I took more confidence until the final".

"I'm just pretty relaxed right now".

Goffin, who became just the sixth player in history to beat Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the same tournament, forced his opponent back in the opening game and broke in stunning fashion with a scintillating forehand victor.

Grigor Dimitrov consoles David Goffin after the final.

It soon became apparent that Dimitrov would not have the third set all his own way, though, as Sock composed himself and began to attack his opponent's awkward slice with heavier forehands.

'Again, some very bad mistakes.

Dimitrov, who will end the year at three in the rankings, will start as hot favourite having thrashed Goffin 6-0 6-2 in group play this week.

Apple delays HomePod release until 2018
If you were hoping to buy a HomePod for your honey this holiday season, you'll have to come up with plan b. Instead of being available in December, it will ship early next year, the company told CNN Tech.

He added: "I was hoping he was going to miss that last volley. He had to be aggressive in order so he doesn't let me play my game".

However, Dimitrov fought his way back.

Dimitrov needed five championship points to get over the line as an untimely wobble invited Goffin back into the final set. The momentum back with him, Goffin broke the following game for a 4-3 lead and calmly closed out the set.

After an hour-long opening set, the two players matched each other in the second until the Belgian broke for 4-3 having survived a break point in the previous game.

So it was fitting in a way that "Baby Fed" Dimitrov came through to win, breaking Goffin in the sixth game and then holding his nerve to clinch the title on his fifth match point.

"I've never found a key to beat Roger", said Goffin, who has lost all of his six meetings with the 19-time Grand-Slam champion.

"There is the generation of Federer, he's nearly 10 years older than me, so we are not from the same generation".

"I was a little bit exhausted in the third", Goffin said.

Federer made two wrong challenges within the first four games and there was a glimmer of upset. "He was really solid".

Since teaming up with Dani Vallverdu late in 2016, Dimitrov has won four titles, including his first Masters trophy in Cincinnati, and recaptured the form that propelled him into the top 10 for the first time in 2014.
