Sports log: Djokovic, Nadal to play for tour title


Defending champion Novak Djokovic set up an enticing final against Rafael Nadal with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Stanislas Wawrinka on Sunday at the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Nadal ended Roger Federer’s hopes of finishing a disappointing season on a high note, defeating the six-time champion, 7-5, 6-3, in the other semifinal. Unbeaten in his round-robin matches, Djokovic extended his winning streak to 21 matches since losing in the US Open final to Nadal. The two will play for the title Monday. In doubles, three-time champions Bob and Mike Bryan advanced to the final by defeating Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares, 4-6, 6-4, 10-8. The top-seeded American twins will take on David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco on Monday.


Dubuisson holds on, Woods ties for 3d

In Antalaya, Victor Dubuisson held off some of golf’s biggest names, including Tiger Woods, to win the inaugural Turkish Airlines Open by two shots for his first European Tour victory. The Frenchman entered the day with a five-shot lead but with Woods, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, and Ian Poulter. Dubuisson had a 3-under-par 69 that gave him a 24-under total of 264. Jamie Donaldson was second at 22 under par, while Woods and Rose tied at 20 under par . . . Adam Scott shot a 4-under 67 to win the storm-delayed Australian PGA by four strokes at the Gold Coast.

Chris Kirk survived a wild back nine to win the McGladrey Classic in St. Simons Island, Ga., thanks to one big mistake by Briny Baird that kept him winless in 365 starts on the PGA Tour. Kirk closed with a 4-under 66 for his second career win, though he received plenty of help from Baird. They were tied for the lead playing the 18th hole when Baird drove into a fairway bunker, the ball below his feet. He topped a 4-iron that went about 90 yards and into a hazard.
