Andy Murray out of ATP Finals after Federer thrashing

Andy Murray has been emphatically knocked out of tennis' ATP World Tour Finals after a punishing 6-0 6-1 defeat to Roger Federer.

The first set score at London's O2 Arena confirmed the British number one's tournament exit as he could no longer better the record of his inspired Swiss opponent nor his previous Group B conqueror Kei Nishikori.

Federer's dominance proved unrelenting as he raced into a 5-0 second set lead until Murray salvaged some pride and a few home court cheers by winning a game at the 12th attempt.

Both Federer and Nishikori progress to the semi finals of the competition, which features the year's top eight players only.

Murray to face Federer in London

Andy Murray will go head-to-head with six-time champion Roger Federer at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Despite that, the British number one looks to have been given a kind draw as he was matched with Federer, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic in Group B, with the latter two competitors playing in the season-ending tournament for the first time.

Murray avoided world number one Djokovic, who has beaten Murray on the four occasions they have played each other this year.

Djokovic will face Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic in Group A.

Andy Murray swayed by No campaign 'negativity'

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has broken his silence on the Scottish referendum, announcing his support for independence on Twitter:

He has been quizzed on the issue previously but dodged the question, although in an interview in June he did criticise Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond for waving the country's flag at the tournament last year.

Wimbledon runner up Roger Federer said he 'felt the love' from the crowd on Centre Court despite losing out to Novak Djokovic.

The 32-year-old, who was going for a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon title, said: "It was a great final. I can't believe I made it to five sets. It wasn't looking good out there for a while."

He added: "Going into a match with Novak is always going to be tough. I felt the love out there. I enjoyed myself a lot. See you next year."

Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic said 'I don't know how I managed to do it' moments after beating Roger Federer.

The 27-year-old Serb had tears in his eyes as he won the All England Club trophy for the second time, stopping Federer from making history for the most wins in Wimbledon history.

If Federer had won he would have clinched his eighth Wimbledon title- the current record is seven.

Djokovic has now won seven Grand Slam titles. He reached his last three Grand Slam titles but lost so this win is a welcome return to form.
