Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise? 2008 Champion!

Can Nole win a match? Can he play a good tounrament? Can he end the season on a high note?

Good news: He only has to win 1 match to improve last years results.
Bad news: Field will be very strong.

Good news: He's looking/playing better this year than he did this time last year.
Bad news: Still not where he (and we) want him to be.


Good news: Already said he was very motivated to do well (and not that motivated in Bercy.)
Bad news: Was also very motivated last year and didn't go well.

So I say: Be Optimitic!

Ajde Nole! Hope he get a good group and enjoys being in Shanghai for the last Masters Cup held there.

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

For those of us whose glass is half-empty right now, at least in terms of optimism, please could you define a good group for the present Nole from the current likely final eight.

Cos I don't think I can.

Nadal, Davydenko, Del Potro. As opposed to Federer, Roddick, Simon/Nalbandian/Tsonga/Blake

OK - I'll give you Davy. Curtains with any of the rest though.

We had better develop a taste for gallows humour fast.

Remember, Del Potro is half-lame.

Also, Davydenko may just be finding form in Paris. He's currently beating the crap out of Berdych. But, I'd take him over Roddick. I'd also prefer Nadal over Fed since Nadal's form is waning while Fed is playing the best he's played all season.

And I'm with you with the gallows humor part. I mean, the only two matches he's won in the last two tournaments were by retirements.

You support Sprem?

I truly hope he does not become that hopeless

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

Well, Nadal has officially withdrawn from Shanghai. That means that Nole will be the #2 seed at the tournament.

Does anyone know for sure when the draw will be? I can't find any info on the official site. I read in an ESPN article about Nadal withdrawing that it would be Wednesday. But, it was written kind of in passing and no time was given. It doesn't seem like the official site is very informative, which I hate. Though, I did find out that the first match will be a singles match played on Sunday at 2 pm in Shanghai.

Also, does anyone know when Nole will arrive?

I know the first match is at 2.00pm on Sunday, because our live TV coverage starts at 6.00am on Sunday morning (UK time), but more than that I really don't know I heard the draw was on Wednesday too, but haven't really gone onto the official site to check it all out yet. As far as I'm aware, most of the European players (Federer and Murray for example) are leaving home tomorrow, so they have 4 days to acclimatise before play starts, so I guess Nole will be the same.

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

Now that I am back, I have to be me again. So here it goes.

The only reason why Nole hasn't... humm ... been Nole lately is because I haven't watched a single match of his since the USO. I am not proud, but I do have a lot of excuses. And I so wish I had watched every single match of his ... But I just coundn't.

Anyway, what I mean is, now that I am back for good, have internet and cable tv at home, I WILL watch every match, and he WILL win all of them. Hear me Nole?

Ajde!!!
