But It’s Far From Over…

There may be a Masters 1000 title to decide, but all eyes are on the race for the World Tour Finals in London in a fortnight. Currently in the final three spots are Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer and Andy Roddick, with Fernando Verdasco following behind.

It’s quite an odd assortment of names. Though Ferrer has finished 2010 with a flourish, the rest have been trudging along, seemingly in a competition to see who can play the worst tennis. Just as the words “real deal” and “Tomas Berdych” began to regularly find themselves into the same sentence as each other, he has fallen into a sigh-inducing slump. And Fendando is no different. In fact, between them, the pair have won a grand spanking 3 matches since the US Open. Andy, though admittedly in far better form, has faced his fair share of disappointment over the last few weeks and months – falling in the second round of the US Open and then injuring himself at Beijing and consequently being forced to withdraw in tears.

To stand a chance of qualifying, Nandos will have to reach the semis of Paris at the very least – so I guess this whole post is useless anyway. But who knows, with a new haircut and fresh shave, maybe he’ll surprise us?
