Fed loses final in hometown…

For all of us Roger Federer fans, disappointing day.  I guess a bad weekend is a bad weekend (GT loses, Dawgs win, Fed loses).  Roger lost in three sets to Del Potro at the Swiss Indoor Championships 4-6, 7-6, 6-7.  Credit to Del Potro who played a tremendous match to upset Federer in Basel, Switzerland.  Federer did not seem to playing at his highest level and it cost him in the third set tiebreaker.  (Noteworthy fact: Roger Federer has the best tie break record in the history of the sport).  Not today for Fed as he had way to many unforced errors and he has indeed announced he will pull out of next week’s Paris Masters 1000 Championship to rest up for the ATP Year End Final in London (play begins there November 5th).  Here’s to hoping Roger can be at his best for the final event of the year and finish as no. 1 in the world!

In Istanbul, Turkey, the Women’s Year End final was won by Serena Williams.  She steamrolled Sharapova, 6-4, 6-3, and even though she will finish the year ranked no. 3, when she is playing her best tennis, Serena is clearly the best women’s player in the world!
