Lmao. They've never played at the O2 arena in London and you were suggesting they did.

They played at the US Open, on Arthur Ashe. I agree with you that people were unnecessarily hung up about Nadal drawing Berrettini but I don't see why you'd even mention that since we're talking about Medvedev. Maybe make it a little clearer?
Where did I say they'd played at the O2?

So...
Djokovic (3-0)
Federer (2-1)
Thiem (1-2)
Berrettini (0-3) for Group Borg.

But what's up for Agassi?
Medvedev-Tsitsipas will go for Medvedev.
Nadal-Tsitsipas should go the way of Nadal.
Everyone will beat Zverev.
The only question is who'd win between Nadal and Medvedev. Nadal says he's still experiencing discomfort from his abs plus it's hard court, so Medvedev might be able to eke out a victory. In any case, if Nadal and Medvedev beat Tsitsipas, then they're moving on to the semis.

So Djokovic-Nadal or Federer-Nadal. Honestly, I don't see Nadal making it past the semis. Djokovic would win on hard courts and it seems Nadal can't beat Federer off clay anymore. In this case, it'd be best to put Medvedev against Djokovic so there's upset potential an hope that Federer has an off day.

Djokovic (3-0)
Federer (2-1)
Thiem (1-2)
Berrettini (0-3)

Nadal (3-0)
Medvedev (2-1)
Tsitsipas (1-2)
Zverev (0-3)

Djokovic d. Medvedev
Federer d. Nadal

Djokovic d. Federer

I don't know. I don't find Fed v Thiem that easy to call. Dominic's form has been a bit mixed of late, and Fed beat him easily here a year ago. Still, Roger has his ups and downs, and one of his downs against one of Thiem's ups can easily lead to a repeat of the IW final result ...

Roger better come out quickly in that first match. Djokovic has extra motivation to come through undefeated, in view of the YE#1 race. Here's hoping for the best!

In his own words, Stefanos just needs to win the 1st set ;) Very wise, winning the 1st set does indeed increase your chances of winning dramatically, this dude is living in 3019 right now

·Update? Ok, I’m in London happy to be here. Taking it day by day after Paris (small abdominal tear). I need to see how things go, started serving yesterday very slowly. Right now the main goal is to be ready on Monday following the protocols that the doctor gave me

What is the situation with the practice courts this year, read they aren't open to fans?

I haven't been since 2013 but was really cool being able to get that close to the players practicing.

The road to YE #1

Might be worth reposting my previous analysis of the outcomes:

So, year-end #1 will be decided at the WTF, as we expected. Djokovic is 640 points behind Nadal, which means Djokovic can get year-end #1 in the following scenarios.

1. If Djokovic wins the title and Nadal does not reach the final, Djoko gets YE#1, unless he won only one RR match and Nadal won all three.
2. If Djokovic wins the title and Nadal makes the final, Djoko gets YE#1 if he won at least one more RR match than Nadal.
3. If Djokovic is the losing finalist, Djoko gets #1 if he won at least two more RR match than Nadal, and Nadal doesn't win the title.

In all other scenarios, Nadal gets year-end #1. In particular, if he reaches the final undefeated, he clinches YE#1. Him winning at least two RR matches means that Djokovic needs to win the title.

Of course, should Nadal not be able to play, Djokovic will be the favourite - he needs to win two RR matches and make the final in that case.

Lief Shiras is calling the doubles match on Amazon Prime atm and the only thing he can say in Dodig’s favour is that he beat Nadal in Canada 8 years ago! Lol. He’s said it at least twice! Dodig is not playing Rafa and Rafa is not even in the doubles draw but that win has to be mentioned to give Dodig some kudos.

That was a wonderful match.

Semi-Pro
The road to YE #1

Getting 3 RR wins is not that easy. I'd say he has a 90% of winning against Zverev, 80% against Tsitsipas, and 60% against Medvedev. That still gives Nadal only a 42% chance of winning all 3 matches, that is to say, more unlikely than likely. And then he will likely have to play against Djokovic or Federer in the semifinal in which case I'd give him about 40% of winning against either. So if Djokovic wins 5-0 (also more unlikely than likely), Nadal only has a 17% chance of being YE #1 by my estimation. Basically, YE #1 is close to a 50/50 toss-up right now.
