The acronym may be ‘WTF’, but there has been nothing at all strange about the London World Tour Finals thus far. Group B has now officially been wrapped up with Roger Federer romping into the semis without dropping a set and Andy Murray following right behind, winning his remaining two matches also in straight sets.
Not only have the results been pretty dull this week, but the matches themselves haven’t exactly been the most riveting of matches in the history of the game. In fact, out of the 10 singles matches played so far this week, only one has actually managed to go the full distance. Group A will round off today, and as things stand, the most likely scenario is looking like a Rafa-Novak 1-2 just to add to the drama and spectacle of the event. But who knows? Maybe the tennis Gods are saving all of the fireworks for this final day of round robin play? Maybe.
Anyway, if Rafa and Novak do advance to the semis, the final four will feature the four best players of the year, and we can’t ask for much more than that, can we?
