World Tour Finals 2010: Can Roger win a record equalling 5th Championship?

In a few days’ time, the world’s elite 8 tennis players will meet in the O2 Arena in London to contest one of the most anticipated tournaments of the year – the Barclays World Tour Finals. After a season with mixed results, Federer was second to qualify for the year ending competition after his first round win at the US Open. Since then he has played some inspired tennis. But the question is, can he maintain it with a victory in the finals here, his first at the new venue?



There is a lot at stake for Federer and not just including the shiny trophy above. Whether it be attempting to become the greatest player at the Year-End Championships by winning a record equalling 5th title (won in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007) or accumulating more ranking points towards what may be a final assault on the number 1 ranking, this could prove to be a very important tournament for him. Besides this, there are a number of other records at stake. For more details, please see my other thread by clicking here (to be updated shortly).


Federer has been pitted against Soderling, Murray and Ferrer in Group B.

Best of luck Rog, good luck in your quest for more trophies and show the world who is number 1!



PS: The winners of the ATP World Tour Awards 2010 will also be announced during the tournament as well and Federer is in the running for a few more to add to his collection. Fingers crossed!

Update: Roger won the ATP Fans' Favourite Award for a record 8th consecutive year. Way to go, Champ!


Update 2: Federer wins the ATP World Tour Finals for the 5th time, beating Nadal 6-3 3-6 6-1. He won all his other matches in straight sets and picks up 1500 ranking points! Thanks for all of the support

Re: World Tour Finals 2010: Can Roger win a record equalling 5th Championship?

Thanks for starting this thread

Roger got drawn against tough players. Söderling is really dangerous indoors and will go to London with the selfconfidence of having won his first Masters title in Paris a few days ago. Murray always seems to be especially motivated to play against Roger. Ferrer is probably the least dangerous player on paper but he also won an indoors tournament this year in Valencia and as we know from the past he has once reached the final of the Masters Cup in 2007, being unbeaten until he met Roger.

But a draw is like it is and Roger is experienced and talented enough to handle it.

I wish everyone who has the opportunity to go to London a great time, entertaining matches and most of all lots of fun in watching Roger play

Cheer loud for him and support him for those of us who are at home.

Good luck for the tournament Roger and also of course for collecting some more ATP trophies, decided by your fellow players and by the fans

Good luck Fed. However it turns out, it's all good



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Blech. Just hand the trophy to Nadal already. With these slow high bouncing courts no one will beat him. He finally bagged the SE award, guess the ATP has to make sure he wins WTF too.
