In the summit clash of the ATP Finals, Djokovic eased past Rudd. The Serb beat the Norwegian 7-5, 6-3 and then celebrated the title win with his family and friends.

Extremely special for me: Djokovic
The Serb tennis star said that he enjoyed spending time with his family and was really happy to see them around. "Extremely special for me. I'm very grateful to my wife and my children for coming. I don't get to have these moments on the tour with them so much, so I, of course, try to enjoy it as much as I possibly can," said the World No. 5 in his post-match press conference.
"They make my life on the tour easier. The pressures, the expectations, the tensions that you normally go through on big tournaments like this, when they're around, it lowers a bit so I can have that time off, quality time with my family," said the oldest ATP Finals champion at 35."That really soothes me and gives me serenity in order to recalibrate and play my best tennis the next day," he added.
