Yeah -- We had a low come in yesterday. Night before last was so warm and balmy with a breeze from the south. Then yesterday the low began to circulate from the southeast with rains yesterday and cloudy today. So now it's in the 40s , but it's going to edge back up to 60s at the end of the week.

What did Fed mean with this quote «I was thinking more about David than about (the semis vs) Andy & Novak; more disappointed for him than I am about losing today» It was on twitter, but I don't understand.

Stupidest tournament. The round robin contributes a lot to the stupidness.


Did Feddie tank or lose?

Fed will be in SF no matter what. The only difference for him is he will face Nole or Murray. But with Federer lost, Ferrer will be out whether he wins or loses vs Tipsy. So, a Federer lost means a bigger lost to Ferrer than Federer.

He means that he feels bad that his losing eliminates Ferrer, making the last match a dead rubber. He also means that he's not trying to pick Andy or Novak in the semifinal.

I think he's honest about the second part. And I personally kinda like Nole to face Federer in the semi .

He probably lost. But he might have lost because he wasn't very into it, though... But I doubt he tanked....

I have no idea what he meant with that sentence, though.

I don't care who Nole plays tomorrow. Bring it

Fed was trying to win, but sort of couldn't be arsed to really fight. He got the early break in the second set and just sat on it. The reverse happened in the third set.

Methinks it was not a tank, but he's trying to leave some reserves behind for tomorrow's semi-final (and maybe Monday's final).

So if Tipsy win, it will be Nole vs Federer and Murray vs DelPo. The other way if Ferrer wins.

I sincerely don't know who I prefer... federer or delpo.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

I would always pull for Ferrer in that match up no matter the consequence.

Federer or Del Potro. The opponent will be difficult, and Djoko will have to play very well.

Question is: Who does Federer prefer?

I have no idea. If he wants to win this whole thing he probably has to beat both. So what does he prefer: Nole in semi and Andy in the final or the reverse? I think it would be better for him to face Andy in the final.
