First topic message reminder :

So the ATPs premier showpiece event hits the O2 on Sunday. The sixth showing at the O2 and yielded only 3 different winners. Very interesting this year. 3 virgin qualifiers in Cillic, Raonic and Nishikori. Can we see a new winner? Can Nishikori and Raonic win the biggest title of their careers to date? Federer will have an eye on the DC like his compatriot Wawrinka, though he is woefully out of form of late. Has Murray much left in the tank to win his first title here at the O2? Can Berdych do a Davydenko and strike out of nowhere? Will it be a routine Djokovic victory?

For me the 2 that qualify from each group will be:

Group A

1) Djokovic
2) Raonic

Group B

1) Murray
2) Federer

Djokovic/Murray final

Winner: Djokovic

I've said it once I'll say it again, Nishikori is the big star of the next generation.
Only injuries can stop it.

meh. Nishikori deserves the set for being slightly less awful than Murray, but that was a terrible set of tennis from both, struggling with the conditions or nerves. Nishikori showing signs of finding his feet, Murray needs to find something a little different (maybe a bit of S&V, given how badly he's timing the ball from the baseline)...

He's injured at the moment, but he's managing the pain.

His career might be a bit like Nadal's, limited due to injury and the possibility of achieving much much more taken away from him.
But that's life, he has to work on his physical fitness and learn how to play with pain from time to time.

Andy has to find some confidence in his shots from somewhere, or this will be over in 20 mins.

three more routine groundstrokes go sailing long, wide and into the net... this is bizarre, easily the worst he's played since Wimbers...

well this one should be over quickly, might just be Andy's worst performance of the year, at least Dimi played half-decent at Wimby, Nishi hasn't even been at that level...

Andy's second serve looks horrendous. Greg was saying before the match that he throws it more to the right since surgery to protect his back, but this means he has to hit across it meaning less kick.

The amount of kick he used to put on it was all that used to protect it from being completely eaten alive. Now everyone seems to feast on it. On a court like this that is excentuated.

I must say I do like the speed of this court, you have to generate pace like Nishi and get punished if you play too defensively like Andy.

Nishi's service percentage is below 50%, if his back was ok that would my considerably higher.
