    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    ****ing Tomic, another tank job. Needs a slap across the face.

    Meanwhile Hewitt really needs to just let it go. Getting thoroughly owned.

    Holy **** at Djokovic's come back against Murray in the Shanghai final !!!

    Saves 5 championship points, and with Murray serving for the match and 30-0 up, Novak hits a ball between the legs and wins that point. Match turned after that. Freak of a tennis player.

    Says it all that matches between the top 4 come down the odd point they are all that good.

    Anyway would have been a bit greedy for Britain to claim a 2nd tour title in a few hours after Heather Watson won earlier.

    Family sized choke in the final from Scotland's () Andy Murray there.

    Must have Sri Lankan blood in him.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    12 months ago there was a reasonably gap between Novak and Fed/Rafa, and then a gap between those two and Murray.

    That gap from 1 to 4 does not exist any more. Its incredible.

    the strongest top 4 in the history of tennis...i can't think of a parallel to this...4 outstanding all court players who contend from the beginning to the end of the year...

    A couple of questions..

    a) How many Grand Slams ago did someone from outside this current top 4 win?
    b) How many Grand Slams since neither finalist was from this current top 4?

    I remember Del Potro's US win in what 2009, which is maybe/probably the answer to A.

    Your suspicion of a is correct. B = Wimbledon 2010 (Berdych played Nadal)
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Thought so re: Potro.

    But waaa - is Nadal outside the top 4? Doubt it. Meant a final without Djokovic, Federer, Nadal or Murray mate.

    Misread the question, thought it was only one person not in the top 4. It was AO 2005, ftr.

    I mean it is the point of the season where no one cares, but what an amazing run from Janowicz in Paris. I suspect he'll get beaten by Ferrer, but he's jumped to No. 26 in the world and could go as high as No. 22.
