It's a good move for Nadal. He has a clear lead and he'll be safe until the clay season. If he has another clay season like he's always had, then he'll have a good shot at finishing #1 next year as well and will have a chance to add points from the TMC. The only downside for him is that if he does mess up at one of the big tournaments, he won't have the buffer from the year-end points in case it's a close race. He wasn't going to risk his DC chances in any way.

I think Fed will be fine for TMC.

Re: ****" The "TMC Shanghai 2008" thread ****

Is the finals best of 3 this year ? I'm worried if that is the case. Roger has been vulnerable in 3 setters lately. If it's best of 5, I'm pretty confident of Rog winning his 5th TMC.

Slam No: 18 is coming soon.

My thoughts exactly, on all accounts.

Love the "startled" photo. He's just such a geek! I love you Rogi!!!!!!

P.S. He does look a little tired and jaded in these photos. But it must be because of such a long flight.

They are my two favourites players....Roger is the best of the best of the world -FOR SURE!!!!- But also I love Niko so much......I adore him....and is amazing game.....!!!

It's random, so 50% chance that Davydenko will be in Roger's group. However, being in the same group doesn't mean that two players can't be in the final; most of Roger's finals have been against players that he already played at the round robin stage.

Well I'd like it better if he put a comb through it, but I'm guessing that's not why you don't like it.
