Fed played really well the whole match and then completely lost it in that tiebreak, sheesh. Oh well, I expected two sets with a break each so I'm still pleased.

Pretty disappointing end, particularly considering how beatable Djokovic has been in this tournament and match. Federer's return game was simply too inconsistent despite his otherwise excellent level of play throughout.

khachanov has show some promise before, and now he actually got a pretty big title. hopefully he keeps on improving to make thing more interesting going forward.

Not surprised by Khachanov's win. After he came close to beating Nadal at the US Open, and then seeing him play in the lead up to the finale, I knew he had a very good chance of winning, no matter who he played. His power and talent overrode Djokovic's Gumby abilities.

I don't think Djokovic's reign at the top will last long. I see the past 2 years as a short reprise of the previous decade. Nadal and Federer are coming back down, so Djokovic can ascend. I think we will finally see the next gen take over. There will be atleast one new ATP slam winner next year.

Anybody watching the ATP Finals?

It’s actually not a bad match between Federer and Nishikori at the moment!

I have got tickets to go along tomorrow evening, but it shall be a heck of a rush from leaving off work at school, hopping onto a train to London then making a mad dash to the O2 Arena...

I still cannot believe Grigor-blooming-Dimitrov won it this time last year!

Yeah. If Federer could actually get any Nishikori serves in play this set probably would have been over already lol. So many poor returns on weak seconds.

Thinking he'll hold for a tiebreak here.

edit: wow, amazing get there

Since Thiem won in straights, it's more likely that Roger will move on. Anderson is guaranteed to move on no matter what. If Fed wins, he'll be the top player out of this group, second if Anderson wins in 3, and if Anderson wins in straights it goes to highest game % won between the three 1-2 players for the second semifinalist.

Thiem and Nishikori both having lost sets 6-0 or 6-1 helps Roger there. If he can just lose 6-4 6-4 he should be through I think.

maybe it would be better for federer to finish second in the group. i think it's possible that he might upset djokovic in the semi, but don't see him doing it in the final.
