He has won with 7: 5, 4: 6 and 6:3, reported Nova TV.

Few gave the willowy world number eight a prayer against the Swiss maestro who had glided through his three round-robin matches unbeaten for the 10th time.

Dimitrov, playing the season finale for the first time, joins Group Boris Becker victor Roger Federer as the only unbeaten singles players, and the Bulgarian will fight for the champion berth against American Jack Sock on Saturday.

Grigor Dimitrov produced a second victory of the week against David Goffin to win the season-ending ATP Finals for the first time in his career on Sunday.

Although Dimitrov - making his first appearance at this event in 2017 - broke straight back, Goffin raced into a 40-0 lead on his way to restoring his advantage by winning the next.

"Both are really special".

Both finalists entered new territory regardless of the result, with the title match having two qualified debutants contesting it for the first time. "Then the semi-final, to beat Roger for the first time here in such a big event, big tournament, it was the ideal moment", Goffin, who beat a hobbling Nadal on Monday, said.

The Belgian runner-up will try to take his form into this weekend's Davis Cup Final against France.

On Saturday, it appeared he would have an extra day to prepare for national duty as 36-year-old Federer feasted on the elegant Goffin's medium-pace game to boss the opener. Four break points for Thiem in the sixth, but a string of wild backhands allowed Goffin to claim the game before Goffin closed in on the final set 6-1.

Dimitrov needed just 22 minutes to clinch the first set having raced into a 5-0 lead, wrapping it up as Carreno Busta dumped a return into the net.

"I was in my match, so that was the key tonight, was to be in my match from the first to the last point".

"It's disappointing to finish on this note".

"I was in my match which was the important thing". So, yes, I'm happy with it.

"I'm just looking forward to some time off now, away from the match court, away from the pressure, then hopefully play well in Australia", the 36-year-old said. Sock began to offload on his seismic forehand though and roared back to snatch the opening set.

Dimitrov made five break and pulled one break point.

Dimitrov believes the manner of his victory is further proof he is overcoming the "hurdle" that has previously stopped him from winning a series of tight matches throughout the season. The mistakes were starting to creep in as Sock pushed Dimitrov hard on the attack; forcing him wide off the court and then forcing a sprint with a slice drop shot.
