The ATP Finals begin on Sunday featuring the Top 8 players in the world…by ranking. Jack Sock clinched won the Paris Masters event on Sunday to close out the field which is led by year-end No. 1 Rafael Nadal and 6-time champion Roger Federer, the lone former winner in the field.

Nadal, who has never won the ATP Finals, comes in with a questionable knee while Federer is healthy and rested, thought out of the No. 1 hunt.

With Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori all absent, it’s a crap shoot who’ll be in those semifinal spots. And of the eight, only Federer and Nadal have been the semifinals at the event before.

Sock, Grigor Dimitrov, David Goffin and Alexander Zverev are all making their debut.

The Pete Sampras and Boris Becker groups will be announced on Wednesday.

AndyMira Says:

Hey!Where’s t4t??U need to come here & deal with someone annoying from California now!!…PLEASE!!Argh!!


Giles Says:

Poor skeezer, obsessed with Rafa. Who can blame him, heโ€™s with the millions! Lol


Giles Says:

In answer to the question. Letโ€™s see now :
1. He skipped a whole season of clay court tennis.
2. Been resting.
3. Claimed injury in Montreal.
4. Tanked to Delpo in US Open ( too scared to face in form Rafa in the next round).
5. Well rested for Shanghai.
6. Played Basel his home tourney (under contract).
7.Skipped Paris to avoid injury.
Soooo, considering the above, whoโ€™s the freshest ? And with Nadal not playing as well, who indeed do you think is gonna win WTF???
Heโ€™s a lock, no?

Humble Rafa Says:

I would rather take the No. 1 ranking than win an unfair online poll. I am also proud of my ownership.

Preache it! Haters gonna hate hate hate hate…


Humble Rafa Says:

Saying same thing twice is like bouncing the ball 15 times before a key point. It brings rhythm and frustrates opponents.

Humble Rafa Says:

2 Slams @36

I can never be older than the Arrogane One. In that way, he will always be olderer.

Fed-Murray charity match live on Youtube:

skeezer Says:

Thanks Fred. A lot of fun to watch….:)


skeezer Says:

Andy got Fed to wear a Kilt whilst playing. Too funny lol…..


Giles Says:

Yep, he was flying around in the kilt. Suited him. Lol


Humble Rafa Says:

Wearing a kilt betrays “man”kind.


skeezer Says:

Rafa fans watching the match eh? Closet Fed lovers lol….


Giles Says:

Watching Andy actually. ^^^^
Lol


skeezer Says:

No you weren’t, you were watching Fed put on his Kilt LOL


skeezer Says:

^And surely if you watched Andy you did not miss the Scottish hat?
Great fun, entertaining and for a good cause.


AndyMira Says:

Hey M & JK…What do u think of Andy’s movement out there?Very satisfying to u guys or??C’mon gals!…Some update please!!


j-kath Says:

Well – Andy seemed to be able to bend and move without pain – he did show lack of match energy – looked tired a few times – but heck, if that’s all that wrong with him – it can only get better. Good that Fed. seemed to be enjoying himself. The doubles following should be really enjoyable.


j-kath Says:

A-M: Posted before I saw your comment – but think I answered it – so far, so good….didn’t see any impediment to the hip/etc.


Okiegal Says:

The ballerina guy traded in his tutu for a kilt??? Lol…. I will admit the kilt is more exciting……..๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

Andyโ€™s hat was hysterical!! Love Andy and his humor…..heโ€™s a hoot! I hope he is getting more healthy each day……especially for my โ€œbudsโ€
J-Kath and Margot!!


Humble Rafa Says:

I need unsee pictures of certain people in kilt. Can you help?


j-kath Says:

Thank You Okiegal.

Re. Kilts – 75% of all male guests at my nephew’s wedding in August (including all family members) wore kilts….dancing went on to 5.am in morning….

Humble Rafa; As we speak, the next invitation to play in Scotland is being prepared for you…..your fan-base insist you wear the kilt during your visit.


AndyMira Says:

JK…If u didn’t tell me that your post[after mine] up there wasn’t intended for me,i wouldn’t believe it…it looks like your answer IS really for me…Hehe…funny!

Btw…I’m really happy to hear about Andy JK….I can’t wait to see his appearance in Brisbane…and really really hope there’s no consequences or setback will happen after that…C’mon Andy!!


AndyMira Says:

From the pictures,these guys seems to have fun with each other!Hahahaha…I can’t imagine if Rafa who’s done the kilt or ‘see u Jimmy’s hat…Hope Andy will invite Rafa or Novak & make them wear this in the future…Must be fun!!


Okiegal Says:

@Skeezer 7:25

WOWZER!! Thanks for that link! Rafa be rocking the kilt…..he did it justice, 6 pack and all SKEEZER ROCKS!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘


Okiegal Says:

@JK……as per Skeezerโ€™s link he posted…….This Rafa fan is pleading for the kilt!! Lol. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Rafa knocked that kilt out of the park! ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ


Okiegal Says:

I have new respect for the kilt…….


AndyMira Says:

But Miss Okie…If Rafa wears a kilt,he can’t pick his short anymore!What’s then??


gonzalowski Says:

๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

today you are all very funny


Willow Says:

A true Scotsman doesnt wear anything under his kilt ;-)


gonzalowski Says:

Hi Willow! nice to see you


Okiegal Says:

@AM 1:32………. Well, the kilt would take a few seconds off of his ritual!

@ Willow 3:19………..EEEEK!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ


AndyMira Says:

There!…Willow said it!!…Miss Okie!…If our Rafa wears a kilt,he can’t pick anything!…Hurry!we’ve got to have an emergency meeting!Better to ask Rafa pick his nose rather somewhere down there!

Btw…..HI Will!!…Welcome back sis!!Hehehe….


j-kath Says:

Yep – was for You A-M……I was tired last night….

aaaa-wonder what time Kim’s baby arrived – was Andy there?


j-kath Says:

Okiegal: When the kilt is Formal dress there are heavy sporns worn also – hence the swirl of the kilt is at the derriere. While what Willow said about “true Scotsman” used to be correct – most guys are most modest these days – apart from the “show-offs” and “drunks”.


Tennis Magic Says:

Nadal may be the number one but this year belongs to Roger all the way. Can anyone really stop him here? … http://www.138mph.com/tennis-roger-federer-is-the-clear-favorite-to-win-the-atp-finals-in-london/


AndyMira Says:

JK…Yeah!…Much congrats to Andy & to u guys as well for the 2nd beloved niece…hey!i remember last year u guys wrecking your hairs out thinking about Andy’s little one’s name…no such activity this year??Or Andy & Kim already agreed to named their daughter Margot??


gonzalowski Says:

Nadal shares group with Thiem, Dimitrov and Goffin; maybe rivals with background game, and that would allow Rafa to further develop his game. (?)

Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic y Jack Sock, in the other.

“the draw had to be delayed for just over an hour because ex-tenist Boris Becker, one of the participants in the ceremony, got stuck with the car on a traffic jam and did not arrive on time”


j-kath Says:

A-M:

“Margot” is a pleasing name – but I think they’ve heard that you sometimes call her “the Witch of Wales” —time to chose “Judy”? or “Judith”?


t4t Says:

Obviously another draw made to order for Fed! All the guys with big, fast games on Fed’s side so the dear guy won’t get tired and the ones who will engage Nadal for hours are on the other side . Also Zverev and Cilic are already likely done for the season so cakewalk for the darling. I hope Nadal withdraws. It really is not worth risking his next season.


t4t Says:

Congrats to Andy but I wish the second one was a boy! We could have looked forward to Andy Jr dominating the ATP 20 years from now! Oh well, I guess we can now dream of Sophia (or Margot or Judy or Kathy) doing a Serena Williams on the WTA. But curiously enough , as far as I know, none of the children of the previous gen greats have taken to tennis. Maybe the kids decided ( perhaps wisely) that they did not want any comparison.


t4t Says:

Nadal does not pick his butt, he only adjusts his underwear. If Nadal wears a kilt and nothing underneath, his wedgie problem would be automatically solved and additional millions of girls would be buying tickets for his matches.


j-kath Says:

Be careful t4t, Rafa might sue you for verbal sexual harassment????


t4t Says:

j-kath No, a little bird tells me he is going to do a “true Scotsman” so the fixers in the ATP/ITF will fix everything in his favor to rake in the moolah from the gate receipts and TV coverage especially the slow motion replays.


AndyMira Says:

JK…Yeah,you’re right!…i think i’ve scared KimAndy with the word “Witch”… Judy @ Judith is okay too..but,it’s a big problem if both Grandma & grandchild will get starstruck by Deliciano in later years!


Willow Says:

Thanks AM, Gonzo, Okie, J-Kath etc ;-)


AndyMira Says:

You’re very much welcome Willow!…<3


j-kath Says:

Gosh A-M- I forgot about Deliciano….we’ll just have to watch carefully for the next 16 years – that being the age of consent in Scotland…..


AndyMira Says:

JK…Yep!!..definitely!!…Bout the name..i guess we have to settle for RAFAELA then…


Margot Says:

Margot Murray has a certain ring to it, no?..;)
I think baby was actually born a couple of weeks ago. They managed to keep that very quiet!
Kath: did you see the exhibition? I was quite shocked at how crocked Andy’s movement seemed.


j-kath Says:

Yep Margot – I gathered only today that the baby was born well
before the Andy vs Roger fest. I did see the exhibition but
only saw it from 2nd set on…I thought Andy wasn’t too bad -
but maybe I saw what I wanted to see… i.e. an improvement over Wimbledon
his hesitation about confirming attendance 2018 signals lots
more recovery needed.


j-kath Says:

A-M: Rafa has patented the name RAFAELA with the patten office. He states no-one but himself will produce the bearer of that name (unless you have another one – he may re-consider)!!!!
