Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

Well deserved. Despite losing some important matches this year Djokovic has had another stellar season of staggering consistency. He didn't quite have the same mental stranglehold on the tour this year but technically, I think he is playing at a very, very high level.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Well deserved!

Was a good year with lots of top players playing close to or at their best.

give credit where the credit is due ... doesn't matter if it is Nole or whoever. and what is this BS about the computer #1? let me try to explain... players play 52 weeks of tennis, they get points for what they do... nowadays we use computers to calculate this stuff ...
Alex, explain this to the horde of morons who went on about computer #1 when Fed had it.

Anyway, this was kinda expected and well done to him for finding some form at the end of the season in comparison to last year.

Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

I am not a Fed fan by any means, but I have to say I am shocked that he gave up the race for YE#1. I know it's cliche'd to say that this may be his "last chance" to do anything, but at his age YE#1's are going to be rarer and rarer to come by. I guess it would be nothing more than a footnote if he ended this year as #1 considering all he's done, but as close as he is I'd have thought he'd have given it a go.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

it was impossible, I can't remember Fed winning (and even playing) 3 indoor hardcourt tournaments in 3 weeks ever, not even to mention at 31 years old and in his current condition which is not very good, which is understandable at his age after what he did in the last year(s).

Besides, Djokovic looked great in Asia and seems to finish the year very well and even if Fed had won everything, which I think had 0.5% chance, Djokovic surely would have got the necessary points.

Yes for Fed it was certainly the last final possibility to be year-end number 1. Well he lost it in the US Open and Asia to a great player in his prime years (it would have been easier in the end of the 90s or beginning of the 2000s).

Now back to other goals : hoping to win the WTF, giving it a try in all slams and staying in top-4 as long as he can, because this is important to keep opportunities of winning slams, and this is not a given : Berdych, Del Po, Ferrer are fighting hard and Fed has not had a good second end of year so far which should usually be good for him.

Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

The tard war over the real no 1/computer no 1/No1e/No2e is fucking boring.

Expected Novak to re-take it though.

Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

Who cares if it was boring, it was a legitimate discussion on the fact that Novak had much better results in the big tournaments and was miles ahead in the race, and therefore could be seen as the real #1.

Now order has been restored

Because it's the first time I can ever recall the ATP Race being considered the real world ranking and not the entry system. Suddenly it was all about the year and not the whole 365 days.

Boring fucking subject between two tedious fanbases.

Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

Objetively speaking, its a good season, but losing two grand slam finals (with one of them going to 5 sets) has got to hurt

I would liken this to federer's 2008 year, its good but equally disappointing in many ways espicially when compared to their previous seasons.

Re: Congratulations No1e! Year-end number 1!

2nd year as the #1, congrats Nole

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

it can very roughly be compared with Fed's 2009 by the disappointments in slam finals (and luck in another one : Aus 2012 and Wim 2009), but not with Fed's 2008 (Fed was not number 1 in 2008, only finished number 2 thanks to a win by Tsonga over Djokovic in the round-robin part of the WTF, and didn't win any masters 1000 tournament)
