There have been quite a few once sided matches so far at the WTF. Secondly people who claim how this is such an important tournament and close to the slams should just take a look around. There is not even 10% of the buzz that you see and experience during a slam. This has as much public interest as a masters 1000' date=' may be slightly more but even that is doubtful. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the North American and European clay masters actually get more TV crowd. Slams are in a completely different category. There is clear daylight between the slams and the other events in tennis.[/quote'] Spot on:nice: This is no way close to slams. Djoker might win this too. So many one sided matches so far.

I think Novak and Fed are a level above the rest at the moment, but maybe Djokovic's form is even a level above Fed, we'll find out if and when they play each other. One thing is for certain, Murray and Wawrinka who were slaughtered in their matches against the top 2, were well off their A game. In fact that's about as bad as I've seen both of them play ever. So they helped to make two greats look even greater. It's a great event the WTF, it's just a shame this one has been possibly the worst since it's been at the O2.

The surface is awful at O2. Paris Bercy used to be better but this year it felt the same. It is my least favorite surface along with Miami. Maybe they should just go back to fast indoor courts. These low and slow rubberized indoor courts produce awful tennis. Basel for example is a much better surface.

How was the O2 surface few years back?:hmmm:

Credit to Fed. Djoker vs Fed predictions? Nole looks fav to me.
Yes Federer played well but gotta say Stan choked away 3 match points on his own serve. Could not find one first serve and tried to serve and volley behind each one of those second serves. In short - panic mode!

Novak is the favorite. This court is tailor made for his game. For Fed to win he will have to serve extensively well--close to 70% first serve--and use the slice really well. That's one weapon which can keep Djokovic honest. From the baseline Djokovic is the favorite. It is near impossible to hit past him on this court.

Agree.Not much hopes on Fed. Lets see.

Whether the court is tailor made for Novak or not, it's down to the others to find a way to beat him. Novak has to find a way to beat Nadal at RG. Nadal has to find a way to beat Novak on slow HC. It's part of the beautiful game. Yes most surfaces are slow now, but you can see why. I would much rather watch longer rallies than the servebots of the 90s bombing down 40 aces per match. Novak needs to kill Fed tonight, I have dinner plans, so the quicker he wins the happier I'll be.

3 of the MPs, were definite brain farts. 1 of them you can excuse for trying something new, but the others you can't. It was definitely more of a choke than Fed playing brilliantly to save his own ass. I enjoyed the match though, whilst not the highest quality match, there was a lot of drama.

Bummer! Federer withdraws from the ATP World Tour Finals final. Says he is not match fit. Djokovic wins 3d straight title by walkover. Wish Stan had won yesterday. :((
Ooops.. didn't see something like that earlier. Guess that win against Stan took some toll on Federer.

Watched his speech. TBH it seems like a precautionary move keeping the Davis cup final in mind. First he waited till the last moment to withdraw and then he said he had a warm up session but was not match fit to contest against Novak at his age with a back issue. If this was the last match of the season he wouldn't have pulled out I suppose.

Tsonga's injury in the middle of the tie screwed France badly. Gasquet was never going to challenge Federer in singles. In fact IMO they should have played Simon over Gasquet.
Yup. Infact i was happy when they announced Gasquet as Tsonga's replacement:two_thumbs_up:
