Motherfucker had me worried at times in the second set but he pulled it out. I hope he carries this into the world tour finals and then into next year.

Son of a bitch. Federer is drawn with Nadal, Tsonga, and Fish in the Tour Finals. This is nearly the worst group he could have gotten since none of those are guaranteed wins except Fish if he's still hurt.

Where I come from, there's no such thing as kryptonite.

It's the Tour Finals. The top 8 in the world. None of them are guaranteed wins anyways.

Fish in the Top 8 is one of those things if you had told me 1+ years ago would happen I would have just laughed in your face.

So the WTF is starting like now. Court according to Roger is faster than last year which is kind of awesome since it seemed decently fast last year. Roger against Tsonga is a hell of a starter singles match.

I could've bought a court side ticket for this match, but instead I'm sitting at home doing my laundry and listening to Tim Henman's horrible commentary. That'll teach me to procrastinate.

Fed looking good at the moment, probably best placed to win this tournament.

So this has suddenly turned into a bit of a bad situation for Federer. He seems to be getting pushed around a lot more and can't seem to buy a first serve.

Yeah, except Federer won
It was a weird match nonetheless, Tsonga seemed to get a bit nervous in the last game and just tried to blast the ball as hard as he could but it didn't work out, heh.

It's always nice to see Roger win, but I hate it when he plays nice guys like Tsonga.

Never seen someone call the trainer before the first actual point of the match before. It seems wrong to call that unsportsmanlike but it seems a little bad if you aren't the one serving first.

Ferrer was pretty sportmanslike in his defeat of Murray today. At one point in the second set he gifted Murray a replay of a first serve by declaring a broken ball.

During the match Murray aggravated a groin injury, so he's deciding whether he can continue the tournament tomorrow. Would be a shame if he couldn't play a couple more games in front of a home crowd.

Tennis Channel is showing all of them if you have that.

So it seems that Murray has pulled out of the event with a groin injury. That sucks for someone that was supposed to be one of the top favorites but it does open the door for Tipsarevic which is cool.

I never thought I'd ever see Mardy Fish or Janko Tipsarevic playing at a World Tour Finals event.

I'd probably laugh at the suggestion 2 years + ago.

It skips a bit and is about a minute behind, but it's the best I could find.

When was the last time he's done this for an entire match to Nadal? I mean the last set of the final last year was kinda like this but this feels like way worse for Nadal.

God apparently Murray's group spot is cursed. He goes out with an injury and Tipsarevic ended his match with Berdych falling down and then limping. I was rooting for Tipsarevic but he couldn't pull it out in the end.
