Default London calling! ATP World Tour Finals 2014 - Rog withdraws from final :-( DC next!

The WTF are upon us! Roger is seeded second and the draw has been made

Group A: Djokovic, Wawrinka, Berdych, Cilic

Group B: Federer, Nishikori, Murray, Raonic

A tough draw, as Rog has a tough H2H with both Murray and Nishikori, but a strong one vs Raonic.

I expect Roger to come out of this, maybe losing a match to Murray but 3-0 is definitely achievable.

Roger will also play his first match on Sunday evening against Milos. He lost his last match to Raonic in the Paris QFs, but should be well rested and looking for revenge.

I am also going to the WTF, all day Monday and Tuesday, so I will see Rog on Tuesday against Nishikori or Murray

I made the thread for the WTF in 2012 where Rog was finalist, hoping to go one better
Lets go, Hopp!

well, given the possibilities, it's a tough group. Hopefully Fed will be looking good again next Sunday. No matches are easy here, but Raonic is an acceptable first opponent.

I'm not very good at predictions (as my MTF games history will show you ) but I think a 3-0/2-1 is more than likely for Roger. I would fear Nishikori more than Murray, at this particular moment, though.

Have fun watching Roger (-: Im trying to get tickets to see him at the australian open next year but even just seeing him out praticing would be worth it.
Overall, im happy with the draw.
Raonic played the match of his life against Roger in paris and i highly doubt he'll be in that form again + WTF courts suit Roger then Paris.
Nishikori can be dangerous but in their last match, Roger dealt with him so im confident leading into that match.
Murray is the big one. He can play great for a bit then lose faith and blow up.
All in all, it should be a great tournament.
How good would it be if Roger won the WTF and the davis cup.

Federer got the tougher group again, like last year. But I still think Federer should be able to make it, it would be quite disappointing if he doesn't. He's currently the better player than all his opponents in the group. Hope he can be unbeaten as well while doing so.

It's better to get a tougher group because you'd get an easier SF in theory.

The one positive compared with last year is that his group goes first, so no having to play Friday-Saturday (of course, DelPo isn't there this year anyway ) - assuming he makes the semis, that is.

He HAS TO make it past the Round Robin stage because I have tickets for both semis and the final and I want to see him at least once (preferably twice, lifting the trophy at the end ).

GO ROGER

I am correct in thinking Roger plays his second match Tuesday right?
