It's just a glorified exhibition that gives the ATP one last chance to fleece the punters before the holidays.

The Olympics laugh at how shit the WTF is.

LOL he is only jelaous. In this case Djoko is just better indoor and ovrall better player than Murray and he can't stand it. So childish bickering is his thing

Murray is a pussy whipped man-child, an embarrassment to the human race and living proof that evolution isn't all that it is made out to be. If he had any dignity he would retire now rather than face further humiliation.

The Olympics? You mean that tournament that you can win without playing a single top 10 player?

Well by that time his Mono/Back injury/Vaginal Thrush, or whatever it is he's been dealing with, will have cleared up.

That's the only reason he's not winning.

I think he's only doing some useless PR for the ATP. He probably doesn't even think what he says is really true.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Djokovic - Chardy

I can understand grass cant be done indoors but why cant they make indoor clay?

Even Beijing , Nadal said that the ball was hardly spinning... all indoor courts like that should employ slower balls for balance... or clay like surface.

who wants to see a boring match like Beijing Finals , some spin would have allowed Nadal to show his skils.. right now it was simply one dimensional skillless service play
