She made a lot of uncharacteristic errors which her opponent was good enough to pounce on.

It's been a great couple of months from Ashleigh Barty.

She holds onto the #1 after this tournament is run and won.

You don't watch F1 do ya Fergus ?

Daniel Riccardio ?

He's won squat !!!

The cricket - yes, but how good was the men's singles final? Federer unlucky not to win it.

How good was the effort from de Minaur and Kyrgios?! Something to get excited about.

To be honest, I didn’t even know what the ATP Cup is until I just looked it up.

First year it's being held so not surprising. Interesting concept. Like a mini davis cup.
I'll be at the semi on saturday night. Thank **** they won.

Tennis has come a long way. Ash Barty's opponent looks to have a neck tattoo.

Novak came within a whisker of being the first man since Laver to win the calendar grand slam. I know he is a polarising figure but I felt for him today, it was a great achievement to get so close.

Yeah I don't agree with the Djokovic hate, like there's a few people who hated then others just jump on the bandwagon to join in - I actually don't mind him. Federer will always be the greatest to me regardless of statistics but Djokovic is one of the all-time greats

Djokovic strikes me to be the least naturally talented of the big 3 and that he has to push himself harder physically and mentally - that's why I like him.
Federer is pretty to watch and Nadal is such a weapon on clay but there's Djokovic always fighting in the last few on every surface in every event, nothing pretty just guts and effort forcing you to beat him not beating himself

Yeah I get the appeal. Mrs Fui likes him. Defensively he’s like a wall, but he’s a bit “Meh” to me. Saw him play years ago against David Ferrer in Melbourne. Ferrer got absolutely demolished.

I’m more of a Rafa fan myself when it comes to the big 3.
