Cilic was beaten in three sets by Alexander Zverev on Sunday in match he felt he had chances to win, especially after taking a 3-1 lead in the deciding set.

However, the 20-year-old German roared back to win five of the next six games and inflict Cilic’s sixth ATP World Tour Finals defeat in seven appearances.

Sock meanwhile could not even take the comfort of a set from his opening encounter with six-time champion Roger Federer, who eased through the gears to secure a 6-4, 7-6 victory.

The American qualifed for the competition at the last possible moment, capitalising on injuries to Federer and Rafael Nadal to win the Paris Masters, the biggest win of his career to date.

Cilic vs Sock LIVE

2.05pm: Right. The doubles (or Barney Rubbles as one Express correspondent amusingly calls them) are done in a relatively timely fashion and the arena has been plunged into darkness for the dramatic entrances of the players. One thing that does do is hide the empty seats of which there are still plenty.

1.45pm: Woken up yet? That was a late one last night as Rafael Nadal ran himself into the ground in a 157-minute epic against David Goffin before admitting defeat to a knee injury in the immediate aftermath.

Without the Spaniard, it opens up the draw for the likes of Cilic and Sock – although losing for a second time this evening would make qualifying for Saturday’s semi-finals almost impossible.

The doubles clash between Henri Kontinen & John Peers and Jean-Julien Rojer & Horia Tecau appears to be running long – they are about to go into a champions tie-break to decide the match – so we might be starting closer to quarter past two than 2pm.
