Djokovic beat Federer in Basel

Djokovic and Federer
Djokovic beat Federer in Basel. That’s got to hurt being beat by some upstart Serb in your hometown. Wonderful place Basel – still remember when I was there a few years ago at the time of anthrax scares and they had to stop the whole tournament because someone found a bag of white powder. Just turned out to be some spectator’s missing cocaine. Whew.

Verdasco and Davydenko still going to London it seems. One to make up the numbers and one to bet on.

Murray beat Youzhny to win Valencia and looks ready to do some damage again at the Masters Cup. Seriously where has Murray been all year?

Pennetta enjoys Fed Cup winGrats to Italy who steamrolled Team USA and a gallant Oudin. Flavia Pennetta is now officially awesome (if she wasn’t already). Let’s all blame Serena for the loss.

Rezai won Bali but I’m sure no one cares by now. She’ll make the top 30 which is an outstanding achievement for a player no one has heard of who was officially at war with her tennis federation not long ago. What’s Cornet’s ranking again?

It’s hard not to remain convinced that Wickmayer would have won Bali if she was allowed to play.

So the women are done for the year apart from those who refuse to rest and will play Challengers and those who like the moolah and will play exhibitions. Venus and Wozniacki are suiting up in Barbados on the 28th - for the fans of course.

Arantxa Rus won the 50K in Nantes, Sacha Jones who the 25K in Rock Hill, Latisha Chan won the 100K in Taipei and Brie Whitehead lost in the first round of qualifying in Phoenix 50K. Welcome back Brie.
