Anyone following the World Tour Finals? Looks like we might be headed for a Federer-Nadal final. Nadal's got Murray in the semis, which isn't good considering past encounters, but based on current form, I'd be a bit surprised to see Murray get the win this time.

That'll be a pretty tight encounter. Federer looks to be the favourite so far.

Rafa is playing fantastic tennis right now, but I'm still with Federer, I can see him winning it once again.

And my wishes become a reality! Can't wait for the final tomorrow. I just wish it were still best of 5.

It really should be. In fact, all Masters series finals should be.

Nadal struggles on the low bouncing indoor hard courts whilst Federer grew up on them.

It's like the opposite of clay, and Federer leads Nadal 3-0 in their h2h on indoor surfaces.

Unfortunately for Roger, Nadal now seems to have the edge on him on every other surface (including most outdoor hard courts) and it's hard to see that changing. Though you never know, maybe Roger has another great year or two in him. A lot of people said he was past it during 2008 before he regained his form to win the US open that year and then the French and Wimbledon in '09.

Aussie Open should be great this year. The year-end championship was a great tournament.. every looked healthy and almost everybody looked in great form.. Especially Rafa and especially Roger. No reason for the best players in the world not to bring their A-games.

Don't often/ever support Hewitt but hope he finishes off Nalbandian in the fifth set.

I took against Nalbandian a long time ago when he had a run in with Tim Henman.

Fed into 5 sets against Simon. I expect him to win it though.

great couple of games to start the tournament. fed v simon was great quality but u knew fed would eventually win. hewitt v nalbandian is the ultimate grudge match, wasted on a first round encounter. both cunts of the highest order. lendl rates nalbandian as the most talented player hes seen strangely
