    Fed on Nadal: "He's gonna go down as maybe the Greatest Player Of All Time"

    Nadal needs to achieve a bit more for that to happen. But it's nice to see Federer show such admiration for his rival. Supporters should take some notes from him and other great athletes.

    And we would have to drag Valverde out of the office, or have as bad of a start to the season as Tottenham have, in order to have a chance of sacking him.

    2019 WTF 1/2 Final:Roger Federer vs. Stefanos Tistsipas

    It was a great bonus because the way I see it, Djokovic has been the man to beat for majority of this decade. Getting the better of him over the whole season is to this day an amazing achievement. But even if he didn't it would have still been a great season. Nadal's two Majors this year are up...

    2019 WTF 1/2 Final:Roger Federer vs. Stefanos Tistsipas

    This is perfect actually. Federer at least did his job two days ago. :p It will be great to see one of the younger guys winning this tournament for yet another year.

    I really hope Nadal never plays this "tournament" again

    Interesting. I hope he never stops trying conquering this tournament. This week he still ended the season on a high even though he didn't progress through the group stage. Coming back against two guys 10+ years younger than him, never stopped believing. It wasn't enough this time, and it's okay...

    Djokovic only has himself to blame.

    Still a great year for him though. Clinical display in Australian Open final and so clutch in the Wimbledon final. He will take some wonderful memories with himself from 2019. Nadal was nearly flawless since Rome so Djokovic was going to have it difficult to protect his number 1 ranking...

    What Nadal achieved this week...

    After 2008, 2010, 2013 and 2017, he has now finished 2019 as world number one, tying Connors, Federer and Djokovic in second place with five YE #1 trophies. And once again, the oldest YE #1, at 33 and a half years of age. Still competing at the highest level. El mejor jugador del mundo -...

    The rules of the ATP finals are completely unfair

    That's what happens when players are drawn in groups. They won't always deliver the same results. It's about doing as well as you can in your own group rather than look at what is happening in the other one. Anyway, World Tour Finals is kind enough to give another chance even after losing a...

    Yes, he doesn't have the extraordinary skill that is wasting a double break in the final set like the guy in your avatar. Thiem has a lot to learn.

    Novak must go all the way in London now. Beautiful. It's 2019 and you can't rule this guy out even when he is a double break down against guys ten years younger than him. The ultimate fighter once again.

    Haven't been in the mood to update recently.

    Nadal withdraws from Paris !

    Shame. Not optimistic for London now and I imagine Djokovic will be the top guy at the end of the year. But even if he doesn't play it, what a year it was. Yet another Roland Garros, and a US Open won after that epic final. Time to approach 2020 with maximum caution, as he has limited chances...

    Nadal's USO Epicness this year....

    It was such an entertaining fortnight. He was challenged by several opponents even though the scorelines might suggest otherwise. Schwartzman clawed his way back into the first two sets when it looked like it would be routine, Cilic and Berrettini were good in the first half of their respective...

    If Nadal managed to win the AO......

    I don't think another Australian Open win will ever happen. He failed to close out a couple of finals and was unlucky with injuries in Australia in particular. The one time he did win it though, it was some of the best tennis I have ever seen, from him and his last two opponents. Amazing he is...
