Djokovic was given a first-set workout by French lucky loser Corentin Moutet before coming through 7-6 (7-2) 6-4.

The Serb, looking to end the year at top of the ATP rankings for a record-equalling sixth time, saved two set points before hammering his way past the 20-year-old Moutet.

"The overriding feeling is one of disappointment. I had some opportunities," said Moutet, who drew loud cheers with one audacious shot where he flicked the ball back between his legs and lobbed Djokovic. "I gave everything I had, and the fans helped me with that."

Djokovic and Edmund have played each other four times with the Serb leading 4-1, although this will be the first time they will have played indoors.

"We know how each other play," Edmund said. "I have not got anything to lose tomorrow, he is the one expected to win.

"I have started to get some momentum now and it was good to learn things going into tomorrow. It is up to me to take it to him and hopefully get something out of it."
