Murray, knocked out by pigeon ********.

Djokevic, straight setted by newbie pigeon Soderling

Nadal, well, pigeon gang raped by pigeon Soderling, pigeon Davychoko and pigeon Djokevic.

I agree. The mens game this decade has always been pathetic with only a few really good players at top and a bunch of scabs behind them. Now it appears even the few formerly really good top players are scabs too. Bring on even more of the WTA.

The only decent player in the top 10 that could've mixed with the GOAT era of Sampras is Roddick. Unlucky for us tennis fans the ARod is injured and we are stuck with a bunch of clowns getting owned by their respective pigeons.

A failure of a post if you ask me.

All this does is show the depth of the top 10. Davydenko is an amazing talent and only lost to Federer so many times because he was intimidated. He finally overcame that, in part due to Federer's weaker form of course. Soderling is clearly a huge hitter. He's not where he is due to some fluke.

It's nice to see this kind of competition. If the usual suspects were in the final then you'd be complaining about the decade being weak just as you are now.

Seriously though people, is TTW ever going to grow a memory function that extends past the current tournament? Djokovic and Murray both won tournaments this month. Fed and Nadal are both going into 2010 defending GS titles. They lose a few matches in the last tourney of the year and we're relegating them to the challenger tour.

Thats all true but none of the top 4 at least reaching the final? Still a bit of a joke to me. It's the Year End championship event, the strong should come out on top not some random masters where top players are prone to early upsets.

You have a point. I can't really tell because the ATP's site sucks ***, but might be the first time none of the top 4 made the YEC final. Guess it had to happen eventually.

Nope - shouldn't do that either.

Prediction: Marcos Baghdatis will record one of the most dominating seasons on the Challenger circuit in 2010, winning 15 events including the coveted Grand Triple Challenge, beating Federer 6-3, 6-4 in the Sunrise final, downing Nadal 7-6 (6), 6-4 to win in Bordeaux, and triumph over Horacio Zeballos 3-6, 7-6 (11), 7-5 in an epic duel to claim Tashkent. Baghdatis will then play in his first ATP series tournament in Valencia, where he will lose in the opening round to Almagro, 6-7 (9), 6-2, 6-1 and will retire the greatest Challenger player to ever live.

That no 5-8 is also VERY good and that the men`s tennis is healthy, this happens all the time, the difference between the no1 and the no8 is very small and it can go either way on any given day.

i cannot understand some peoples logic behind putting down players so much; yeah you dont have to like them but for gods sake give them some respect for what theyve done. unless youve seen the way these guys play up close, you have no right to say such offensive and, quite frankly, idiotic things about them.

I suppose, but it doesn't mean that they are going to win. If match results always ended with higher ranked player defeating lower ranked player, then we might as well not watch tennis at all.

Simple, two out of three versus three out of five. The game is deep in two out of three. Heck, Murray is probably the king of two out of three right now. But in majors, the cream rises to the top. WTF is cute, but I doubt Fed/Djoke/Nadal are really upset about not making the final. Murray is a different bird and probably feels wronged missing the semis by one game and wanted to win at "home," but he loves those non-slams.

Most of the armchair pro coaches around here have no idea the amount of pace is on the ball during these matches and also have no idea the level of hand eye coordination the top pro's have. To the point that it just makes the guys that do it appear to have the IQ of a fruit fly.

agreed, i went to the fed delpo match and verdasco murray match on thursday; to say anything negative about these guys if you're not as good or better than them, (which most of these posters seem to think they are) is just downright stupidity. things like feds backhand is poor, delpos movement is bad, murrays a pusher, etc. just don't seem to make sense when you see the pace, timing, footwork and effort that goes into every single shot. again, i would really love to see these posters take on any pro, from 1 to 1000 and lose 0 & 1 just to see the difference between a really good player, and someone like federer or murray. Then they can see the stupidity in their own comments

Davydenko takes the ball earlier more consistently than Kafelnikov ever could. Did you see what he did to Rafa in Miami last year? Schooled. At his best he's a serious threat to any player, even at their best.

Have you ever seen Davydenko play in person?

im by no means saying that people cant have different opinions; obviously everyones not gonna agree. but what i am saying, is that certain posters seem to think that the weaknesses that these pros have are obvious and that they could be exposed by anyone, and this is just simply not true. its really only players in the top echelons of the game that can find these holes in the defences of the fed's, nadals, or murrays, and it just annoys me when people dont respect the amount of talent ^^^these guys have.

The WTA weak since upsets happen.WTA only has serena and venus at the top which is bad.There has to be more females who can dominate. While in the top 10 any of them are really good to win any tournament. It just the mental aspect of doing it.

Take a look at some numbers for the top 8 guys this year:

Federer: Played 69 matches, won 59.
Nadal: Played 75 matches, won 64.
Djokovic: Played 94 matches, won 76.
Djokovic: Played 74 matches, won 64.
Del Potro: Played 63 matches, won 49.
Davydenko: Played 69 matches, won 53.
Verdasco: Played 74 matches, won 52.
Soderling: Played 63 matches, won 44.

So the top four guys have played a total of 312 matches this year, and only lost 49 of them. Thats about 85% wins.

While the 5-8 guys have played 269 matches, lost 71. Thats 74% wins as opposed to 85%.

I think it all comes down to fatigue. They're obviously not going to be playing 100% at the end of a long year. The top four have played a lot more matches than the 5-8 guys, and they're simply tired.

And BTW, the top 4 are the 4 best players in the world, I don't think it gets much better than that...
