For Djokovic to be ranked number 1. He needs to win the tournament with Federer being eliminated before the quarter-final.

Federer beats Wawrinka 4-6, 7-6, 6-0.

He is now guaranteed to be No.1 for 300 weeks.

Loses the first, close 2nd, but bosses the 3rd.

Tomorrows matches are...

Murray vs Stepanek
Federer vs Cilic
Tsonga vs Berdych
Djokovic vs Tipsy/Haas winner

Was obvious Wawrinka would lose the match after that 2nd set tie break, up until that point he was definately the better player. Federer wasn't playing that well today. Murray and Djokovic both looked comfortable today though, I think either of them will win this tournament. Tsonga/Berdych sounds good tomorrow. Who's in who's half?

Also really nice to see both Robson annd Watson thhrough in Japan. One more win and I think Robson moves into the top fifty? Would be a fantastic year for her if she could.

Tsonga vs Berdych
Djokovic vs Haas

Those are the halfs.

I think you are correct with Robson. One more win and she's top 50. It would be good for her to win this tournament. I don't really care who wins that tournament since Shvedova tanked (i'm choosing to believe that), but it would be good for Robson if she won it.

Yeh, would be really good if she could come through and win this. Would do a lot for her confidence, since it's already on the rise it would reaffirm that she's on the rise.

Quaters are interesting. I thinnk a Djokovic/Tsonga semi could be fun, and a Fed/Murray semi would be really interesting. They havenn't been in the same half all that often so it's fun. I think Murray would win vs Fed in a semi in this tournament. Another Djokovic vs. Murray final please! I think they'll be the dominnant duo next year. We've had Nadal/Federer, we've had Djokovic/Nadal and now we're hopefully getting a Murray/Djokovic era.

Confidence is what Robson needs to maintain. What she can't do with, is a heartbreaking loss that shatters her confidence (Just like what happened to Shvedova at the Olympics).

I'm making a bold prediction for next year. Someone, other than the top 4 will win a grand slam in 2013. Probs won't happen, but there's a bold prediction in all of us.

I hope we don't get a Djokovic/Murray era. I'm not particularly a fan of Murray's style of tennis. I think he has the tools to play a good attacking game, but he decides to be a pusher. Djokovic is primarily a defensive player now, so these two dominating would confirm that defensive tennis is the way to go. Thank god we still have attacking players such as Tsonga and Federer still around. I don't hate defensive tennis at all, but i'd prefer to see a mixture, rather than just defence all the time.

Djokovic would beat Tsonga or Berdych in the semis i think. Tsonga hasn't been playing well recently. TBH, i'm surprised he's done this well. A title, a final, and Quarters in Shanghai. Berdych hasn't been too good since the US Open either. Berdych was kinda lucky that Nishikori wasn't 100% in his match against Querrey, because Kei seems to have Berdych's number.

Good news, is that Del Potro will be back next week. Playing a tournament in Vienna.

From his Facebook page: "Hello!! I tell them that I am well and able to play again. I start next week in the Vienna tournament. Thank you very much for the support!"

I think Del Potro, and Tsonga (if he's on) are the main threats to the big 4 atm, so i hope Del Po comes back strong.

Ferrer can win the French if Nadal isn't back to his best by then but other than that nah. The top 4 are so far ahead of the rest it'd take all 4 of them to through one tournament away for it to happen.

Tsonga can win one if he plays at his best in the 2nd week. Tsonga at his best beats any player in the world imo (shame we don't see it often enough). Del Po can certainly win another one if he returns to form, and like you mention, Ferrer could win Roland Garros if Nadal is in poor form.

I know that it probs won't happen. I was just making a bold prediction

I think Murrays style of play his altered somewhat this year. He used to push far more than he does now, he now does use a mixture of defensive and attacking play, much like Djokovic (although he attacks slightly more) I think Murray now get onn top of balls far better, he finishes poinnts far better and quicker than before too. I'd say he was a tactician, not a pusher now. He's got a ton of variaty, he changes direction and speed of the ball so easily, I think he's an incredibly interestinng player to watch.

In terms who who can make a dent in the top four...it's tough. I think Tsonga has the best chance but then I don't think it is much of a chance. He's someone who can beat any player when he's on and when everything works right, but one match doesn't win a tournnament unfortunately. I had hopes for Del Potro but he's so injury prone it will be difficult for him to maintain a top standard regulary. Yeh Ferrer could win the French but it would take major upsets to get Djokovic and Fed out of the tournament (not so much Murray, he's not a fantastic clay court player) but I thhink that's about it.

I think a Djokovic/Murray era or a year is pretty much inevitable. Nadals getting more injuries, he wont be able to play at a top level for much longer, Federer is getting older and there will be a point when he does decline and with nobody able to make any move on the top four Murray and Djokovic will be the top dogs in the very near future!
