Andy Murray at practice, ATP Finals 2015

A disappointing performance by Andy Murray who lost to Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka at the round robin stage. He will finish the year at world number 2 if Federer loses to Djokovic in the final later today, if he wins both his live Davis Cup singles or if he wins one Davis Cup single and Great Britain wins the tie.

Murray can now focus on his biggest goal: the Davis Cup. By the way, if you attend the tie and would like to share your pictures or stories, please leave a commment below.

Enjoy a few pictures of Andy’s practice:

Rafa practicing, ATP Finals 2015

A good tournament for Nadal despite his straight sets loss to Djokovic in the semifinal; he beat 3 top 8 (Murray, Wawrinka and Ferrer) on his worst surface, and seems to have found his confidence back. Do you think he’ll be back at his best and win a Grand Slam next year?

Novak Djokovic, Bercy Masters 2015

I spent a few days in Paris last week for the BNP Paribas Masters, the ninth and final Masters 1000 event of the season. Novak Djokovic captured the title, dispatching Andy Murray 6-2 6-4 in the final. Enjoy my pictures and recaps of day 1 to day 4.

Novak Djokovic, BNP Paribas Masters

And that’s now 19 victories in a row for world number one Novak Djokovic. Gilles Simon broke Djokovic’s serve first, but the Serb immediately broke him twice to win the first set 6-3. Both players kept struggling on their serve in the second set, Djokovic dropped serve four (!) times, but each time Simon lost his serve immediately after. I have to say that match was pretty boring to watch. 6-3 7-5 for the Serb who’ll face Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals.

Richard Gasquet, BNP Paribas Masters

The first set between Gasquet and Nishikori was without a doubt the best I’ve watched so far this week, with beautiful rallies and winners from both players. Gasquet had to save a few break points at 5-5, but won the set 7-6(3). Nishikori then received some treatment on court and retired after Gasquet’s double break in the second set. The Frenchman now leads their head-to-head 6-0.

Gasquet, who looked relaxed and happy to play in front of the French crowd, will next face Andy Murray, who demolished David Goffin 6-1 6-0 earlier in the day.
