Rafael Nadal's dramatic withdrawal from the ATP Finals in London leaves Roger Federer as the only megastar standing at a tournament now looking seriously short of star power.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion guaranteed his place in Saturday's semifinals by defeating Alexander Zverev 7-6 (6), 5-7, 6-1 on Tuesday.

While this has been an event shorn of some of the biggest names the quality of the matches has, so far, been better than in many recent years, and last night was no disappointment either.

The Swiss re-found his focus and some consistency on serve in the decider as Zverev's level dipped, earning three breaks to close it out 6-1. "I'm relieved and I know now I can play freely against Marin Cilic knowing that I have qualified".

The 36-year-old usurped a 4-0 lead to the 6ft 6in bit-hitter, who netted his own set point opportunity at 6-5, and paid the price as Federer took it 8-6 after 54 minutes of spectacular action.

"It was a good battle and I always enjoy myself at this attractive arena", said Federer, who has now reached the semi-finals 14 times.

Along similar lines, Nintendo is set to launch a Netflix-like service for classic retro games on its Switch platform in 2018. When Kotaku reached out to GameStop about the suspension, the company said "program limitations" were largely to blame.

Sock, who seized qualification by winning the final Masters event of the season in Paris, lost his debut match to Federer, but he is now 1-1.

Sock blasted a ball into the crowd in frustration, but channeled his anger to break in the first game of the second set and was clearly enjoying himself, moving around the court nimbly as he levelled the match in dominant fashion.

Federer only landed 43 percent of first serves in the second set and it finally cost him in the 12th game, when Zverev capitalised on his third set point to force a decider.

Jack Sock recorded an enthralling three-set victory over Marin Cilic to enhance his chances of progressing past the round-robin stages of the ATP Finals. "It's been an interesting morning, a fire alarm went off at 4am and we all had to exit our hotel so it was a long morning. It's an awesome atmosphere, you make me feel like home". My coach growing up nicknamed me "Showtime" because I love playing in front of people, and there is always a lot going on.

The top two players from each group qualify for the semi-finals and after top seed Rafa Nadal pulled out through injury Federer is now a massive odds-on favourite to win the tournament.
