WTF Day 2

Written By: achangeofends - Nov• 22•10

So I’m 1/2 on predictions, but I’ll take it. Andy Murray easily took down Robin Soderling 6-2 6-4. It looks like the home town advantage and the extra rest did Andy some good. Federer also scored a routine win over David Ferrer 6-1 6-4. That makes for David 0-11 against Roger and most likely was not the way he wanted to start his quest for the title. I may just have to change my Group B predictions with Andy Murray playing this way. Anyway, it’s already day 2, so let’s take a look at what’s going on today.

Novak Djokovic vs. Tomas Berdych – Stars 12:15pm GMT

In July, I totally would’ve taken Berdych. He played amazing tennis throughout the summer and then the US Open came. After losing in Round 1 to Michael Llodra, Berdych has barely even won a match. Djokovic, on the other hand, made it all the way to the US Open final and even took a set off Rafael Nadal. However, Nole has admitted that the Davis Cup is weighing heavy on his mind. In a little over a week, Serbia will take on France looking to win its very first Davis Cup title and Djokovic will be the team’s headline player. Even though he’s a bit preoccupied, I think Djokovic has the upper hand in this match.

Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Roddick – Starts 6:15pm GMT

I’m pretty sure that Rafa’s the favorite regardless of who he’s playing. He’s clearly the safe choice here. Andy Roddick rallied at the end of the season to win the last spot at the WTF. This is the eighth time he’s competed in the World Tour Finals and his results here have never been great. The only good news for Andy is that he’s not in Roger’s group. But, I really don’t see him beating Nadal right now. However, lucky for him, two guys come out of Group A, but he’ll have to beat Djokovic and Berdych to capture that spot.
