That was some ugly tennis.
After 3 games I'd had enough. :mad1:

Some great dubs being played by Granollers/Lopez and Nestor/Zimonjic.
Nice comeback to win in the match TB.  Supposedly their last match together.

I watched the first set, it was enough.
This may have been the most uninteresting WTF so far as I remember.
However Nishikori Djokovic may be good depending what form Kei is in.
That'll be at 8AM central tomorrow.
A NishDjok match doesn't really pique my interest. :(
The doubles matches have been the WTF's only saving grace for this fan.
Fortunately TCC has been showing plenty of that. ://
CONK da ball!!!

This has been an awful tourney for singles thus far.  Let's hope the last few matches can amaze...
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I've felt the same way. You can predict the outcome of almost all encounters in the WTF from just 5 minutes of observation.

People pay big money for what is a series of exhibition matches.

The final may be worth watching, despite all.

I guess it shows how dominant the top players are these days.

Just saw the 3rd set TB between Stan and Fed.
Though neither served well, there was plenty of variety of shot from both players.  Most enjoyable to watch!
Unfortunate that Stanimal was unable to capitalize on 4 match points.
Serving at 38% (first serves) for the match, how could he expect to win?

Fed v. Nole in the final might be worth a look if Rogi is willing to move into the forecourt at every opportunity.  I think if the battle is fought from the baseline, Djoker will be more than he can handle.

B Bros into the dubs final absolutley annihilating Benneteau/R-V.
The stench from Julian's poor play made for the shortest match of the tourney at 53 minutes.  He certainly was a good sport about it though. :)

Finally a good match in the singles! 

So what time is the final today for dubs and singles?
Good Luck on the Court!!!

:lol-sign:

Anyway, no Ninja Rogi, JesusFed and the rest will show up this time. Djokoking will win this for Serbia....


However, there will be a huge asterisk next to the winner's name, with the best player on the surface, Nadal not being there :tounge-smile:

No Final!  :mad1:

Fed withdraws because of injury.

Gutted. I can't believe this. I'm in tears, in ruins.
Then we will fight in the shade.

The doubles surely shined at this tourney.
B Bros go the distance and finish at #1 for the 10th year.
Great highlight clip that includes back to back 'tweeners midway through the match.

This year's World Tour Finals was one of the strangest I have ever seen.
The anti-climax of not having a Federer-Djokovic final was very disappointing.
