What the lack of a system does to you is that it hinders your ability to continuously keep a tab on your favorite sports. What happened as a result is that I was not aware that the season ending world tour final has already started.
Nadal started well in the tournament by winning his first round against Mardy Fish in 3 sets. He next plays Federer in today’s match. He would be playing Tsongs last. Beating Federer would mean that Nadal will play Murray or Ferrer in the Semis. If he loses to Federer, he will most probably end up playing against Djokovic and we know how that meeting has turned out in the last few months.
So this game is absolutely critical for Nadal. Unfortunately, Federer has been in good form in the last 2 months or so. He managed to win the Paris masters and the one before that. And Nadal is coming back to tennis after a break of 1 month. So.. we’ll have to see how that goes.. specially because they are playing in an indoor hard court and Nadal has never beated Federer in indoor hard courts.
