American player Jack Sock celebrates taking the second set against Croatian Marin Cilic, during day three of the ATP World Tour Finals being played at the O2 Arena in London, Tuesday Nov. 14, 2017.

"It was a tough one for sure", Sock said after defeating Cilic for the third time in as many attempts.

Cilic broke for a 2-0 lead in the deciding set, but Sock displayed the fighting spirit that carried him to an unlikely Masters victory in Paris last month, breaking back in the fifth game and force a tiebreak.

Cilic looked set to come out on top when he claimed the first mini-break of the tie-break, but Sock showed incredible athleticism to dart in and guide away a victor after a Cilic shot struck the net cord and he won five points in a row to seal a hard-fought victory. I'm here to win matches.

"I have so much fun playing in London and I have been so successful here". He is appearing in this end-of-season event for the 15th time, and has only once failed to get out of the group stages.

The Swiss star composed himself again to break down a man 16 years younger with six straight games in the third set to make it through to the semi-finals after two hours and 11 minutes of action.

Federer will play his last round-robin match against Marin Cilic, who he beat in the Wimbledon final earlier this year, while Jack Sock will take on Zverev in a winner-takes-all clash for the right to join the world No 2 in Saturday's semi-finals.

In the absence of Rafael Nadal - who withdrew from the Nitto ATP Finals late on Monday night - it is hard to see who might stop Roger Federer from capping his glorious season with trophy No 8.
