    Djokovic is almost certain to finish the season ranked No 1. If he wins his three round robin matches this week, that spot is guaranteed, but if not, Roger Federer needs a perfect week and a singles rubber victory in the Davis Cup final next week to have any chance to overhauling the Serb.

    These two have met three times this year and Cilic has gotten a little closer each time. Their first meeting was a 1-6 6-2 6-3 win for Novak in Indian Wells, before he won in four sets at the French Open. At Wimbledon they clashed in the last eight and Cilic went two sets to one ahead only to lose in five as Djokovic claimed the last two 6-2 6-2.

    Marin Cilic looks down on most players at 6 feet 6 inches tall. He's making his debut here after winning a personal-best four titles in five finals this season and this is his first competitive action for three weeks since winning in Moscow last month. He will need to adjust to both the arena and the fact he's facing the best player in the world pretty quickly if he wants to make an impression in this best-of-three match. Coach Goran Ivanisevic - who appeared in five season-ending events himself - has his work cut out.

  • Djokovic gets a huge ovation as he makes his way into the arena. The toss and warm-up to come and we'll be set to go.
    11/10/2014 8:04:58 PM
    The Cilic serve gets us underway and he holds to love as Djokovic begins with some looseners that fly long. Time to recalibrate the radar.
    11/10/2014 8:16:07 PM
    An ace brings his first point of the match, but Djokovic isn't in his groove as more unforced errors - that's five already - push him to deuce. He then has the perfect chance to get on the board, only to dump a smash into the net. Cilic then tests him with some utterly booking forehands that Djokovic does brilliantly to defend and force a mistake and a big serve then sees him through.
    11/10/2014 8:21:36 PM
    Brilliant cross-court pass from Djokovic wins him his first point on the Cilic serve and a second duly follows with a slap into the net from the Croatian. He recovers to 30-30, but a loose forehand hands Djoko his first break point of the match, which he takes as Cilic pulls a straightforward forehand wide. He'd done the hard part, pushing Djokovic wide - bad miss.
    11/10/2014 8:25:17 PM
    Cilic misses a simple volley that would have made it 15-30 and put some pressure on Djokovic, who comes through the game with some hitting in that final rally that suggests he's found his groove. Very clean, perfect approach, clinically dispatched.
    11/10/2014 8:31:04 PM
    Stunning cross-court winner on the run from Djokovic has Cilic shaking his head. Brilliant fetch. Cilic then pushes a forehand wide and Djokovic has three more break points. He needs only one as he repeats the shot from earlier in the game and gives the crowd a little fist pump in recognition of the fact.
    11/10/2014 8:34:16 PM
  • Super guy "super coach" 2 @keinishikori Michael Chang, 7-time @ATPWorldTour F's shares ideas on coaching #halloffame

    Djokovic holds his serve to love. I would say the fact Cilic has only landed 36% of his first serves has been crucial, but then he's only won 40% of those points, so the point is moot.
    11/10/2014 8:38:51 PM
    A thunderous forehand return from Djokovic earns him set point - which is duly saved with an ace - but that only spurs him to pull out a cross-court forehand from the Gods to set up another and this time Cilic has no answer, dumping a backhand into the net and that's the set done.

  • DJOKOVIC 6-1 1-0 CILIC*
    Djokovic impeccable, Cilic untidy and rushed. No contest. 
    11/10/2014 8:45:28 PM
  • DJOKOVIC* 6-1 2-0 CILIC
    Cilic's second serve is dispatched down the line. He gets back into the game with some booming forehands only to then hand Djokovic break point with a volley that flies out off the netcord with the court gaping. A frustrated forehand slap into the net later and he's down a break again. He looks a lot older than his 26 years suggests and this match won't be doing anything for him

  • EXCITING NEWS: @jamie_murray is taking over to live tweet for a period of the #Djokovic #Cilic match #SkyTennis

  • DJOKOVIC 6-1 2-1 CILIC*
    Coach Becker umoved as Djokovic puts himself under a little pressure at 0-30 and another piledriver of a forehand from Cilic earns him three break points and a chance to fight his way back into this match. He obliges with an excellent winner from behind the baseline. He's in the game.
    11/10/2014 8:54:29 PM
  • That break back for cilic came out of nowhere really and he now has a chance to build some momentum in this match. JM
  • much needed big serve from marin to keep himself in the game. JM
  • DJOKOVIC* 6-1 3-1 CILIC
    Djokovic just misses out with an backhand cross-court extravaganza that would have earned a break point, but he pushes Cilic back to deuce off the second serve. Cilic saves one break point with a big serve, but another loose forehand gives the Serb another chance. Out comes the big serve again, but it's unforced error time again as his droopy drop shot flops into the net. Djokovic climbs into a second serve and he has his break again.
    11/10/2014 9:01:50 PM
  • I think Novak just snuffed out any chance Marin had of getting back into this match. JM
  • DJOKOVIC 6-1 4-1 CILIC*
    Djokovic not letting this one get away. He has Cilic on the run in this game, punctuated by a devastating smash from behind the service line. He holds to love. 
    11/10/2014 9:03:35 PM
  • Nice quick hold for Djoko. One way traffic JM
  • So @DjokerNole breaks Marin Cilic for a 5th time to lead 3-1 2nd set (1st set 6-1) @ATPWorldTour on @SkySportsTennis right now #lookingeasy
  • How often does Djoko return a first serve right onto the baseline of the server??? JM
  • Gotta go back to the studio! this match has been too quick. Good chatting! :) JM
  • DJOKOVIC* 6-1 5-1 CILIC
    Djokovic's returns are so deep Cilic is being forced to play half-volleys on the baseline and he has no answer. Another break and the end is nigh...
    11/10/2014 9:08:20 PM
    Djokovic wastes no time, winning his service game to love and that was as easy as Wawrinka's win earlier today. Considering we're watching the top eight players in the world this week, we've had some very one-sided affairs in the first two days.

  • Well, we've had less than two hours of tennis today after two 6-1 6-1 matches. The games are bound to get more competitive as the week progresses as players fight to stay in the tournament and find their feet, because it feels like there have been several cases of nerves in the huge O2 Arena. There is obviously some adjustment, because this isn't a run-of-the-mill ATP tournament. Anyway, tomorrow brings the return of Group B and Andy Murray, who will bid to keep his hopes alive as he takes on Milos Raonic. Kei Nishikori also returns to court after his impressive victory over Murray as he plays Roger Federer - so impressive last night in dispatching Raonic.

    So that's where we leave you for the evening. Thank you for your company today and we'll see you tomorrow for day three of this season-ending extravaganza.

  • GOOD AFTERNOON! [recommend]
    We're back for day three of the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 on the Greenwich peninsula in London. Yesterday saw the four players in Group A get their tournament going, with both world no.1 Novak Djokovic and Australian Open champion Stand Wawrinka sweeping aside their competition in Marin Cilic and Tomas Berdych respectively.

    We begin this afternoon with the legendary Roger Federer taking on the other unbeaten member of Group A, Kei Nishikori. The Japanese superstar beat Andy Murray in the opening game of the tournament, but can he cause another upset today? Then, this evening, Murray will battle with Milos Raonic and both players will be desperate for a win to keep hopes of qualifying for the finals a reality. So settle in with me for the day as I take you through the third day of the ATP's season finale.
