Thanks, Eden. Unfortunately, for legal reasons it's only available in Switzerland, but I expect from previous experience that I'd have needed subtitles anyway!


So, I know people were saying that, given that he pretty much didn't stand a chance of beating Djokovic anyway, it was probably just as well he didn't get through to the final, but since Andy couldn't manage it either, would you rather, in hindsight, that Roger had got through to the final?

Would've made an ... interesting final.
I didn't hear it firsthand, but this Swiss journalist tweeted about it:

They may be tied of AOs, but they will never be tied on French Opens, Wimbledons or US Opens!

Yesterday I posted a video of the press conference but unfortunately the clip has been taken down from the internet and I also can't find it elsewhere.

Oh well, Djokovic won. Now he has as many AOs as Roger. Anyways, since it was a toss up between this and the rankings, ... to move on....

OK it's true that Fed drew Murray instead of Ferrer in the US Open, Shanghai and the Aus open (but not in the Olympics and Cincy) and had to play against him in the WTF Semi,

but if he keeps number 2 for Madrid, Roma or Roland-Garros, he would at least be sure to avoid Djokovic in semis even if Nadal could always be there

... and I know you would like Roger to bring his weeks in the top-2 as long as possible (atm 413 weeks guaranteed until the end of Indian Wells, it's still possible to argue between him and Lendl at this number)

Nadal might of course be concerned from QF )

At the moment, Fed is guaranteed the number-2 seed in Indian Wells, but for the seeds in Madrid and Roma, he's just 935 points ahead of Murray. If Murray wins 800 points in the final, clearly it will be tougher to keep the number-2 seed in Madrid and Roma.

Roger will play Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian Wells until then.

Murray will play Indian Wells, Miami and probably Monte-Carlo and/or Barcelona. He will not play in february, preferring to prepare in Florida for Indian Wells and Miami.

For the number-2 seed in Roland-Garros, Roger is 335 points behind Murray and 1315 points ahead of Ferrer atm.
I'm not thinking along those lines. Every time I've been excited about a possible easy draw it hasn't materialized. In the FO I fully expect another difficult SF, either Djokovic or Nadal.
