Ali, I hope you had a great time anyway Looking forward to hear about your day
I agree with this: even Roger said so...
“I thought it was a tough match,” admitted Federer. “Looking at the score line, it doesn't reflect how tough it was. There were many close games, especially in the second set. Possibly the first set could have gone faster, too."

But I think David was nervous and he didn't get off to a good start which is not a good thing against Roger

Ah well - first match out of the way - hope David he finds his mojo now..... Whatever happens, he's still one of the world's best players - which given the talent out there isn't a mean feat at all!!

Good Luck David.....

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

Good luck to you David in today's match. Ferru fought hard against Roger and it was a good match. It was hard to see two of my favorites play each other. Beat Soderling today, Ferru!

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

Poor David - he's having one rough ride.... that was a really tough match. However, if he beats Murray, I think there's a chance he could still go through... just got to hope, eh?

He needs a bigggg hug I think!

Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow all you folks in the US

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

I finally saw the match. This was really a sad loss for Ferru because Soderling, though serving well, was not sharp in his volleying or his forehand. Ferru had a real shot to get the 2nd set to a tiebreak but a netcord went against him in his final service game and that may have played negatively on him. He took his foot off the gas and it was over.

I hate to see him screaming in frustration and biting his shirt. But that's how it is for him against the top 5.

I hope he can beat Murray for his own well being.

Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes Carol.

Poor Ferru! He's having such a hard time. It hurt me to see him so upset.

Which ones? Is he at Seville with Charly Moya?

I can only suppose that David knows his fitness best, but yeah, surely he needs some down-time and R+R...

So hope he can beat Murray this evening:it's not as if he can't do it - he's beaten Murray twice this year (OK, on clay) and if Murray plays like he did against Federer...

He absolutely needs this win, not just for a chance of going through to the semis, but for his own self-confidence and plus he'll be the only one to not win a RR match which would be so sad as it really, really does not reflect David's talent...

So sad that match against Robin Soderling... yes Edda, it's horrible to see him so frustrated and upset with himself. I always want to rush over and give him a huge hug ;-) (not that he'd thank me for it I daresay, hee, hee)

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

I really started liking Ferru after his come from behind victory in the Davis Cup final against Radek Stepanek. Ferru just seems like a very nice guy. He and Juan Carlos Ferrero are both very nice.

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

David lost 2:6, 2:6 to Murray

Well, this was surely not his best week, but he played a fantastic season and I am glad he will have at least a few days off until he plays the exhibition tournaments

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

While I'm sad that Ferru didn't do well in London, I have to remember how excited I was when he qualified. He is a good player and a nice guy, and I wish him the best next year.

Re: Barclays Atp World Tour Finals

Oww, that was painful... whatever David did, it just wasn't enough. I have to admit I was in tears at the end - David sort of gets to you like that... at risk of repeating myself, I absolutely adore him!

Yes, he can still look back on a super year - and better still, a consistent one. It's not easy when there's just so much talent out there with Rafa and Roger and Novak, and yes, I've got to include Andy M and Robin S too, I suppose :-s

From what I can make out from his site (my Spanish is nonexistent - thank you Google), he's signed up to play the same tournaments in 2011, so hurray for that!!

"David has told us that "sign" and "pay" to return to make next year the same season that culminates in which again placed among the eight best in the world. "Since I signed on to redo the same season. Come on, pay for it," said David who, at 28, ended the year as number seven in the world ranking." "David nos ha dicho que "firmaría" y "pagaría" por volver a hacer el próximo año la misma temporada que culmina ahora, en la que volvió a situarse entre los ocho mejores del mundo. "Ya firmaba yo por volver a hacer la misma temporada. Vamos, pagaría por ello", dijo David que, a sus 28 años, cerró el curso como número siete en el ránking mundial."

Auckland will be with us before we know it, hee, hee!

I hope David can continue the good work he's done this year! I loved seeing him at the year end championships, and am enjoying the successes of Rafa and Roger this year as well.
