Barclays ATP World Tour finals
« on: November 07, 2012, 16:46 »
Murray beaten by Djokovic.

It means that Djokovic will qualify for semis if Tsonga beats Berdych. Pretty much confirmed that...

Murray though has a lot to make up with his match with Tsonga going to be very likely a decider.
Murray played extremely well in the first set though and he looks to be in good form once again this year.
It would certainly be a terrific cap off for his year if he manages to win this, but if so he will have to get past Djokovic again and this time defeat him which seems to be a rather tall order.

And of course Berdych if he beats Tsonga which is certainly possible, then will be level with Murray and will leave all still in the balance.

Federer V Ferrer tomorow and that will certainly be a good match.
I will be attending the DelP V Tispy match, which hopefully will also be a cracker. 
Ferrer is in great form and after his win in Paris, this match up will certainly be one of the games of the tournament again a player who has won this particular meeting a staggering total of 6 times.

    Djoko-Murray was a thriller apparently, too bad I missed it. Those two are building up quite the rivalry of long, exciting matches.

    I would be inclined to agree as based on current form (as it should be) I see Djokovic beating Federer and Murray should make it past Ferrer, though that game will certainly be worth watching.

    Quote
    Fifth seed Tomas Berdych ensured Group A will be decided on Friday after he beat seventh seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5, 3-6, 6-1 in one hour and 52 minutes during Wednesday’s night session at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London. It was a repeat of last month’s If Stockholm Open title match.
    So indeed it will go down to the wire very possibly.
    Murray should beat Tsonga though..

    Quite right Archie

    Just got back from the O2 and was certainly a good experience.
    It was nice to see the Bryan brothers who got awards for World no.1 and fans favourite.
    Of course the singles game itself was pretty one sided and over reasonably quickly. Tispsarevich has no chance of progressing further in this tournament tbh and he was obviously too full with nerves tonight to really play at his best. Del Potro on the other hand was truly impressive. He strikes the ball as hard as I have seen any player and he made it extremely difficult for Tipsarevich to gain any sort of advantage with his serve as Del Potro's return was so good it evened the odds.

    It is great to see him playing so well after his injury and it seems like next year he will make inroads into the Elite 4, and I certainly see him capable of him adding to his US Open title he won in 2008.

    Glad to hear you had a good evening at the O2 Froomee.
    Tonights evening session looks good as well, apart from the Murray match the doubles game could be an excellent watch also.
    Marray/Nielsen v Lindstedt/Tecau, which is a repeat of the Wimbledon doubles final which went to 5sets. Also its good to see Marray have a good run here as only ranked 8th seeds and already qualifyed as group winners. Chapeau Marray/Nielsen..

    Gotta say I also like the idea of the "Aces for Charity". There will be some very happy school kids after this event with their new gear. A great way to get youngsters into the sport. Cycling could certainly learn from it.

    Thanks Archie and agreed...

    Del Potro very impressive so far, especially considering that Federer seems to be imperious at this time of year.

    :pray

    Currently actually hoping Fed meets Murray as tbh I think Murray stands a better chance again him than DelP  :D

    A must see match currently on in the O2..

    Del Potro is currently totally bossing Djokovic and Djokovic currently does not seem to have any reply to DelP's magnificent ground strokes, the power behind them means that DelP can boss the rallies and means that Djokovic finds it hard to maneuvre the ball where he wants as he is always on the back foot.

    Was planning to watch the football, but can't take my eyes off the tennis atm..

    six to four in the first set..

    So maybe it was inevitable that Djokovic would come back :D
    He truly is an unbelievable tennis player in that he is never beaten, the amount of times he has come back is truly astounding. It took long enough to really find range with his forehand in order to really spread it and also to play the ball more onto DelP's backhand to get on top of the rallies and therefore he can then choose the point when to change side using his forehead and therefore really dictating the game.

    It is interesting though that he did not really change his style until the 4th game of the second set, though of course it did contribute to serving up a true cracker of a game.

    Though also Chapeau to DelP he is only improving and his defeat of Federer this week will surely be his highlight and I have a feeling we will be seeing him feature more prominently this coming year in grand slams... #fanboy

    Now for the match which everyone has been really waiting for.. :woohoo

    This game seems to have the makings of a classic.

    Tie break in the first set, very high quality tennis..

    Truly brilliant and breathtaking tennis..
    :pray
    Crowds give players standind ovation as with
    Djokovic at 6-5, Federer on the brink with a drop shot from Djokovic dives and somehow manages to get to the ball and not only that but scoop it cross court away from the oncoming Djokovic who was preparing to volley :D

    Rusedsksi says it is probably one of the best shots in tennis he has ever seen.

    And Djokovic now seal the set though 7-6, can not wait for the next set, but it surely can not be better than the one we just had?
