6 Comments for ATP Final 8 Freeze Up For The #MannequinChallenge

RZ Says:

Fun! I’m more entertained by the mannequin challenge than I should be.

J-Kath Says:

RZ: I enjoyed it too. Wasn’t it great to see Andy and Nole grinning away at each other – must say Nole looked very much like his old self.

I thought Milos was a mannequin, that he was the real wax deal and the others were real. In camera floodlight unblinking, devoid of any soul or personality popping out. I guess Canadians have this ability!

Not surprised Djokovic and Andy getting along as almost always. Djokovic has a rep as one of the nicest guys on Tour, getting along with basically everybody but Fed. And who he has worked to have a good professional relationship while telling Mom and especially Dad to let the “offenses” of Roger when Nole was starting out – go.
Andy supposedly has his moods, especially while losing or after losing that make interaction at those times awkward, but also a rep as a great guy otherwise, who truly cares about his fellow male and female pros and people in non-playing parts in the organization.

I look forward to a Novak-Murray rivalry playing out in the next 2, maybe 3 years. They are on roughly equal terms and have this amazing history as mates and rivals thrown together , going back to preteen years.

Don’t think Roger can get it done anymore against either guy, but I am not ruling out Rafa Nadal making one, last brief comeback and giving us another couple classic matches playing Novak or Andy. (Not Roger because the outcome is not in as much doubt).

And of course big congrats to Gael, Dominic, and alternate David Goffin on their 1st trip to the Championships. And tell them to say “Davydenko!” before they play, as it’s round robin and the heavens could align to each of them as well.

I Doubt we will see anymore classic matches between Novak and Rafa anymore, when the matches become one sided as they have lately, then they lose there appeal, i can understand it obviously when ones favorite is on the winning side, they are bound to love it, why wouldnt they ? ….

Willow Says:

Very nice, they looked great in suits ….

Khb Says:

They’re actors too. Ah, wise guys, ehh?
