Seriously, stop complaining that this match in particular was horrible.

It's not like the other "top players" have been playing well since the beginning of this Masters (or even during Bercy)! Horrible performances all around (mostly). The only good match I've seen was DelPo vs Ferrer and even this one was sometimes terrible.

So this one wasn't any worse than the others, and no, given their current form, I'm really not convinced that any of the others would have routed Fed.

I hope the final H2H is at least 20-0. Since Ferrer can't secure his place in tennis history by winning a Slam, here's a good alternative way to get in

It is possible but I am not sure he'll reach it.

Really? This was by far the worst quality match of the World Tour Finals. At least in Federer vs Tipsarevic, Federer played well.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Nope. Ferrer is 2-3 in sets (2-1 vs Delpo, 0-2 vs Fed), if JMDP wins in 2 today he'll be 3-2 in sets. If he beats Fed 2-1, he goes 5-3, while Ferrer can go 4-3 max if he wins in two.

Not to mention that if JMDP wins in two today, a Tipsy win over Ferrer would make him qualify even if he lost in straights to Federer.

Roger played like crap but who cares as long as he wins.

Roger is the only player to qualify to the semis after 2 matches.

Now it's time to get ready to exact revenge on del potro.

5 double faults from Ferrer and -8, that is pretty bad for him. Stop thinking its Fed on other side of the court.

His best is nothing special anyway. Fed would still beat him even if he played worse than today.

Federer was far from great, but no need to exaggerate his bad play. He found the way to win in straights - says a lot itself. Though I`m a bit afraid of his back right now, he just couldn`t find 1st serve till tie-break.

Ferrer is still making semi, Tipsy won`t beat him.

Gasquet is next №1
