Sorry for my belated reaction, only just seen the outcome of this...

Del Potro!!!

Interesting note from the ATP that this is the first time since the modern rankings began in 1973 that ten different nations have been represented in the top ten.
That's pretty cool!

And none of them American.

I just came on here to post this.

SkySports have a video of that backhand winner from the final, and have captioned the video, "The shot of the tournament?".

http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/tennis/10665547/the-shot-of-the-tournament

The following day, they released a video titled 'Top 10 points at the O2', with a comment underneath stating, "There were so many amazing points at the World Tour Finals last week, but we think we've found the ten best."

http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/tennis/10666757/top-10-points-at-the-o2

The backhand wasn't even featured.

I guess that's a resounding 'no' to their first question then...

Thanks TD...It was great to be able to see that again, safe in the knowledge that Andy had prevailed.  Very Happy If Djoko had managed to break Andy again in that last game, it would've been unbearable. I don't know how Andy did it, but I doubt he'd have lasted a third set. I heard Djoko celebrated beating an equally exhausted Kei Nikashori as though he'd just one the final, so the thought of him actually winning it was just too awful to contemplate, so thank God we didn't have to! Phew! Rolling Eyes

I tried to watch this on Sky's website but they've managed to **** up the audio somehow, makes it unwatchable with sound.

Let us not forget he's done this whilst also winning the Olympics and making the Davis Cup semi finals, which no longer offer ranking points.

If they still did, he'd have over 13,500 points.

Just a couple of other tidbits:

ATP: "With the victory, he became the first player to win the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title after saving match point since Roger Federer in 2006 in Shanghai."

Sky: "And Murray has broken serve in all 87 singles matches he's played this year."

"A few weeks ago I said I'd pretty much have to win every match between now and the end of the year to be #1"

Christ, I hadn't considered that. He's only gone and won every single match.

The exciting thing is, there are still realistic targets to aim for. First Aus Open title? First French Open title? Career grand slam? Calendar year grand slam... 2017 could be even better!
He's only got four tournaments left to complete the collection! Of course those do include two of the four slams.

He's undefeated in Britain this year. Queens, Wimbledon, World Tour Finals hat-trick.

Didn't realise there was a trophy for YE #1. Those trophies look amazing.
56  General Community / Andy Talk / Re: WTF 2016 Final: Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic on: November 20, 2016, 08:07 pm
Given their respective draws, given how tight some of his matches were, given how he broke the longest match record twice in three days, to come out of all that and still beat Djokovic in straight sets with the #1 on the line. I'm lost for words.

What an utterly sublime way to end 2016. You really can't take anything away from him now. He's beaten the rest to do  it in such emphatic style. #1 in the world, you better believe it.
57  General Community / Andy Talk / Re: WTF 2016 Final: Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic on: November 20, 2016, 08:01 pm
24 wins in a row, culminating in wins against world #7, #5, #3, #4 and #2.

He's ******* won the World Tour Finals!

Legend!

How nice would it be, if after all his matches this week, he chooses THIS one to serve it out to love, maybe a couple of aces chucked in there too.

I can dream anyway.

Kiss of ******* death by Sky after the second break. Said it was all but over on their live commentary feed. Really irritates me.

I can see this all unravelling very quickly if Murray gets broken again now. We've seen it all before.
