300 Weeks at Number 1 for Mr. Federer!

Roger Federer has assured himself of retaining the world number 1 ranking with a come from behind victory over friend and Davis Cup teammate Stan Wawrinka, 4-6, 7-6, 6-0.  Fed looked shaky in the first two sets of this match at the Shanghai Masters event but came on strong when it counted with his usual brilliant shot making.  By reaching the quarterfinals of the tournament, he will hold on to the number 1 ranking regardless of who wins.  Djokovic and Murray both also advanced to the quarterfinals.

Ironically, the nut-case blogger who posted the death threat against Roger earlier this week has apologized.  Sounds like it was perhaps a prank after all, albeit a very sick prank.

Hope Roger keeps winning, all the way to the Year End Finals in London!!
