Fognini!

Time to reach first career M1000 F.

I only watched the last few games, Nishikori was obviously bothered by something.



a.k.a.
Doktor Carpet -- The Fogmeister -- Ragnar Lothbrok -- Sicario



Do you wonder what I've been doing the last 3 months?

Keeping injury aside, Nishikori form seems to have declined in last few months and this year overall. Now was his golden opportunity to shine when Djokovic is terrible since FO and Murray not so good this year. Now add to that both are injured and struggling. If not now then I am not sure if he can really win any gs. In a year or so someone new will start to dominate the courts and Nishi will always look down about this missed opportunity in his career.

Fed moves up to world number 5, passes Kei and Raobot.

Only Nadal can still catch him.

He's clinched 5, may still get up to 4, but that's up to Nadal.

Great to see The Fog in a 2nd Masters semi. Win or lose, I hope he displays the full range of his athleticism & shot-making in the semis. I hope he plays at a consistently high level for the rest of the season, but that's unlikely, of course.

As for Kei, I agree with the pessimists. It seems as though his body will never hold up long enough for him to challenge for slams or No. 1, & you have to wonder how long he can stay in the Top 5.

No Nadal will not move to #5. Male tennis players protect their biggest star who has done a lot for them . Which is very nice to see . Something really is going on but i am not sure what is it. Definitely something about Federer. Some people said something that they should not say . Del Potro was getting ill advised . Well we will get soon what is going on.

Lol. I knew Fognini is there for something . Kei went to play on clay in SA for something to see. Well both coaches / Fognini' and Kei' / are Argentinian , They for sure know something. I will not be surprised if Berdych is sick or injured for tomorrow match as well if Rafa loses to Sock. So Fed could move to SF without playing because he will be something like Donskoy' match. If Rafa moves ahead Fed will moves as well. But if Rafa loses Fed will lose as well. So it depends on players who they want to stay in the game Fed or Rafa ??? Things got to this point.
