Heather is playing Sara Errani in Wuhan at the moment.  She just narrowly lost the first set - c'mon Hether!

Looks like now Federer is in decline Cilic is the guy everyone wants to rim.

http://www1.skysports.com/tennis/news/12110/9494977/atp-china-open-convincing-win-for-us-open-champion-marin-cilic-in-beijing

Seriously, who writes this tosh?

'Convincing win for US Open Champion Cilic'

'Cilic stormed into the second round'

There's me reading this thinking 'oh wow, who did he beat?'

Turns out he beat a wild card ranked #464 in the world 6-3, 6-4.  Eyebrow raise.

Not only that, the guy can't even get his facts right:

'Cilic, a previous runner-up at the event, is looking for a good week to help claim a place in the ATP World Tour Finals in November.'

(He's already qualified).

and while I didn't watch tmh I did pick up later that Cilic was serving poorly and I think #464 in the world didn't do too badly at all against him

Jamie wins in Tokyo.  Well done as it was tight with a 10-7 Championship tie break decider.

Tsonga out!  He needs a miracle now to make London. Perhaps winning one of the ATP 1000's essential. It was always a long shot but it virtually reduces those able to get there to current top eleven. However mathematically many can!

Also opens up Raonic's draw, and what with Wawrinka and Ferrer out he should probably be winning that tournament now.

That is only a small problem. It was obviously not in Andy's interest that Stan lost. However Raonic won Tokyo last year so for normal end of year ATP rankings Andy is still catching him and if he matches him with his own performance in Beijing he will not gain in the Race.  It is all in Andy's control by bettering him in the 1000's later.

I understand that Andy took a while to get going today. Let us hope that he finds it easier on Thursday.

Sorry. I remember now. He lost in the final to DelPo. He might win this year although I hope not. I expect Kei N to win. No fun to watch Raonic at the O2. Perhaps Granollers can play superbly again and stop his progress if they end up in one semi? Just ideas!

Granollers already beaten which must be galling for Ferrer!  Oh please tennis gods don't let Raonic go to the tennis ball at 02  pray
