Today in London, at the ATP Year End Finals, Roger Federer dismantled Andy Murray 6-0, 6-1 and if you missed it..well you flat out missed greatness on display. This match featured 33 year old Roger Federer in all his glory, absolutely brilliant and in full flight as to why he is widely (in my mind, there is NO question) considered the GOAT and without question the greatest indoor tennis player in the world (yes, still the best!) This match was a letdown for those who wanted to see a great, hard fought competitive match, but it was also kind of funny that in many ways, even though it was in London, (Andy is Scottish, adopted as a Brit) it was a home court crowd for Federer. Wherever Roger plays, it is almost always a home court advantage. It was really something to see when it comes to watching tennis perfection. At one point, even Roger’s wife Mirka was shown on the screen, almost shaking her head at one of Roger’s brilliant shots. So too were Stefan Edberg and S. Luthi along with the rest of the crowd in the O2 arena. Anyhow, K Nishikori now advances along with Federer out of Group B into the semifinals on Saturday. Tomorrow’s action will feature Group A, and we shall see if Wawrinka can join Djokovic in the semifinals from Group A. Today, Nishikori won over David Ferrer (filling in for M. Raonic who had to withdraw due to a shoulder injury) 4-6, 6-3, 6-1. Hey, it is hard to get a last minute call and head to London to play one match in the Year End Finals!
Meanwhile, a lot of great CFB in store this weekend.
