The 17-times Grand Slam champion cruised to a 6-3 6-1 victory over the Serbian world No 9, taking his haul of victims in the event to 40, one more than Ivan Lendl.

Federer, who has won the title a record six times including the last two editions at London's O2 Arena, seized the initiative when he broke Tipsarevic's first service game and never looked like loosening his grip in a one-sided contest.

"I was striking the ball well today," said world No 2 Federer, who is playing at the Tour Finals for the 11th consecutive year.
