LOL at this logic. Tennis doesn't work like that. Besides Djoker also straight-setted Khachanov at Wimbledon.

All credit to KK who played a fantastic match today...

I'm reading big things about this Khachanov kid .. that he has a 'complete game' and doesn't have a weak surface ? haven't seen him play but that's some high praise .. also he took out isner, thiem, zverev and djokovic to win this tournament .. easily disposing of thiem and zverev in the process and straight setting nd .. no easy task .. someone to keep an eye on .. we'll see if he has that hunger and discipline to be great

Nadal officially pulled out of the ATP Finals so Novak is year end #1. To be honest, Nole has less to play for now and should take the intensity down a notch and prepare for the Aussie Open. Apart from suffering from the flu this week, he seemed mentally exhausted as well. Then again there is two months until the Aussie so...

Lol yeah it's a ludicrous thing to say. I think AW just sick and tired of smoke trollin him, tried retaliating the best way he could

I'm kinda annoyed Rafa won't compete at the finals but he prob doesn't wanna risk more injury. I think he's just punishing the ATP for having indoor tourneys, he sucks in them. It is what it is.

It's smart for Nadal and Fed to play with caution if they want a successful 1-3 years before they retire. What has really surprised me is Nole's rise to #1 status after it looked like he was turning into Murray. It's exceptionally rare to watch a sport and realize the 3 greatest of all time somehow all ended up playing at the same time. Even though Nadal is a druggie enhancer, it's also rare for me to like all 3 all timers. Unlike basketball or football where so many of them are cvnts or just unlikable divas.

He doesnt suck in them at all... barely plays them and still always has great success at the WTF.


The point of the above post is obviously that Nadal was obviously the best player at the US Open, but the draw won it for Djokovic.

Hes lucky Khachanov is a few points behind Alternate Isner.

He would expose weak Nole again.

This is a prime example of being a massive sore loser.
