yes, I've just seen this and understand your concern

anyway, having a second thought on this, I may have been too assertive in my previous post : I think mostly the decision will depend who is on the final on sunday, and in which WTF group they are.

If Djokovic was in the final on sunday as I quite expected, yes it was certain that he would start on tuesday and Fed on monday, but if Djokovic is not in the final on sunday, it's different.

And now that he seems to be ill or something

but well if he's still ill in the end of the week, they might also tend to make him start on tuesday, as they did last year when Murray had a physical problem.

But well I was too assertive : if Djokovic is not in the final on sunday, it's still doubtful who will play on monday, although I do hope and rather think that Fed will (it would also be good because it would give him one day of rest before the semi).

useless old guy

Re: London ATP World Tour Finals - When will Fed play?

We need someone with a really good Match-thread opening record to start the WTF thread.

My own record is F-Rd32-W-SF-QF. So though I want to start this one, I hope there's a better man for the job.
My nominations are:

NYCTennisfan
Eden
KAT YZZ

...Or maybe a first timer like Suktuen?

Re: London ATP World Tour Finals - When will Fed play?

I am prepared to buy a ticket to the night session on Tuesday if Roger doesn't play on Monday. When does the draw come out? I gotta be home on the day to make sure I get a ticket, if need be, as soon as the order of play comes out.

You surely don't want me to start the thread when you know my record...


9 tournament threads started - only 2 victories for Roger

Last one going back to Cincinatti 2009...

2 Wins in 9 attempts is impressive by MTF standards.
Better than my 1 W in 5 attempts for sure.

Someone please wake up NYCtennisfan from his slumber!

...Or should we rest our hopes on a Fedal like Sunset of Age?

Yeah, a Fedal jinx might work!
