You have the magical ability to remove one of the 8 players qualified for the WTF, so Rune can play it...

Id actually prefer Sinner over that mug, just gutted that he couldnt convert the MP at USO
If he had, Nadal would be number 1 in the world and would have achieved his sixth Year End number 1.
The Italian sinner deserves eternal punishment for such a sacrilege.

I would want Nadal to withdraw. He is not going to win it plus not fully fit. Better give the spot to Rune who has better chance
People want Nadal to withdraw because they are worried Nadal might just beat him. Djokovic leads Rafa 3:2 at the WTF and 4:2 indoors overall so there isn't a hugh gulf between them. Djokovic has 5 WTF titles; one was a gift from Roger in the 2014 Final and he hasn't won it in the last 6 years in one of which he didn't qualify.

Let's put this in perspective. Djokovic has played the WTF 19 times, he's won it 4 times and gifted 1 by Roger. It's not as if he just has to turn up to win it. Djokovic has lost at the WTF 15 times; Rafa has lost there 10 times when we all know he was struggling with fitness and on accasions had to pull out in the RR stage.

When will draw for WTF come out

Why can not ATP announce it today
I can't see what they can't announce the draw today. They always leave us guessing when the draws are due. Tournament organisers should take the fans into account; many have to plan to be able to watch it and we all want time to talk about the draw before the tournament starts.

While Djokovic hasn't won it in last 6 years, the other player in question hasn't won it once in his lifetime.
 
Obviously Djokovic, until he explains why his team is blocking people from seeing his in-match formulas he should not be allowed to play in my view.
He really should address it. Even if just to reassure people and stop the speculation.

It was a truly bizarre spectacle.
