The ATP tour isnâ€™t quite finished though. It should be, of course, but we still have a few weeks to go. In Stockholm Roger Federer has been making his way through the draw without too much fuss. Today he played Ivan Ljubicic and after racing to a 5-3 lead, Ljubicic promptly crumbled and it was businesslike from then on. He faces Florian Mayer who scraped through Nieminen in a third set tiebreak. Thatâ€™s as far as he will go though, there is no way that Federer is going to slump to 2-7 in finals in 2010. No way.
Back in Moscow, Viktor Troicki continued his good form of late by beating Pablo Cuevas, and he will face Marcos Baghdatis in the final, who clawed his way back from a double break down in the third set to Denis Istomin, to steal the match on a breaker. Thereâ€™s still lots of tennis to be played and watched between now and the unfillable void that is the off-season. Enjoy it.
