What a way to end infamous 2020 but w/ a rebroadcast of equally infamous Adria Tour or the last 2020 tourn. w/ normal attendance thanks to EuroSport. I’m aware it was an exhibition but kudos to them for having the hutzpah to air these controversial but historic matches which occurred at one of the lowest periods of the pandemic when no one knew what was going to happen in the future for many sports.

The Adria Tour will forever remain a historic staple in the rich history of Tennis...

What a glorious event.

Thank you Eurosport, for airing such treasure.

Kudos to Domi for travelling Anywhere for competition in crazy 2020 even if he still has to prove himself at a major w/ at least 2 of the big 3/4 in the draw.

Novak didn't manage to win either. (y)
King won:

ATP Cup
Australian Open
Dubai
Cincinnati
Rome
ATP Player of the Year/Year End #1

The fact Thiem/Massu got completely snubbed at the awards shows the ATP agree that his season just wasn't that remarkable.

Thiem won it fair and square. Not his fault Nadal focused on RG, Fed is 1000 years old, and Djokovic could not control his anger
Actually i think If Fed were to return to form, he might have as good a chance as Novak now that Laykold surface has replaced Decoturf but my point is though Thiem earned it, he was very fortunate not to face any big 3 or even a healthy experienced Murrinka.

LOL the Djokovic fangirling over some whocaresaboutit tournament just because Eurosport of all channels are replaying it. As if they don't usually replay useless bullshit, starting on their boring commercials paid by the two or three brands who still invest on them.

Prehistoric tennis was lagging behind pretty much any other sport.

If it wasn't for that tournament, the rest of the season might have been different with possibly some events not even taking place.

It wasn’t so much the ‘quality’ or ‘prestige’ of the tourn. as much as the convivial nature of it during a severely depressing period of the pandemic ‘imprisoning’ element to keep the sport afloat in deprived regions of the world.
