Nitto ATP Finals 2020 London

The first two singles matches were played today at the 02 Arena in the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals. No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal handed Andrey Rublev a 63 64 defeat, a somewhat more competitive verdict than their 2017 US Open quarterfinal drubbing of 61 62 62. Nadal is gunning for his first WTF triumph, Rublev is making his year end top 8 Master’s debut.

And Dominic Thiem outlasted Stefanos Tsitsipas. 76 46 63 in a rematch of last year’s final won by the Greek titan 67 62 76. Thiem now leads their overall head to head rivalry 5-3.

In doubles action, Ram and Salisbury beat Kubot and Melo 75 36 10-5. Koolhof and Mektic defeated Krawietz/Mies 67 76 10-7.

Day 2:

Novak Djokovic swarms Diego Schwartzman and scores the 63 62 triumph. Novak is now a perfect 6-0 vs the Argentine gladiator and tied fellow Master Rublev with 40 wins on the season, tops on the ATP World Tour.

“Everything is difficult against [Novak]. I think what he’s doing when he’s playing his best, he’s moving the ball… to every single point on [the] court,” said Schwartzman. “It’s very difficult to see or to know what he’s going to do and [to] try to make good points… He has a lot of talent when he has the chance to move the ball.”

Two weeks ago in Vienna, Djokovic clinched the year end no. 1 ranking for the 6th year, to match Pete Sampras.

No. 4 Daniil Medvedev beat no. 7 Alexander Zverev for the third time in four meetings 63 64. Zverev had won their first four matches, the rivarly now stands at 5-3 for Zverev. All of their duels have been played on hard court or indoor hard court.

In doubles action 1 seed Pavic/Soares beat Melzer/Vasselin 67 61 10-4. And Granollers/Zeballos beat Peers/Venus 76 75. Melzer of Austria is 39 years old and ranked 28 in doubles.

    Djokovic loses to Meddy 63 63 but Djokovic did not play with full intensity or full passion emotion, looked like he floated through the motions because he was obligated to.

    Trump Team Will Prove Case ‘Within Two Weeks’ In Court / Dominion Refuses To Face Court
    Good post. It’s hard to be patient at this time but we must. The 2000 election drama (both sides were/are corrupt being the difference) took 37 days and was far simpler. This is like six Floridas in play; with a lot more fraud taking place in a more complicated manner.

    From what I’ve been able to piece together, this is what happened on election night: the Demonrats had the Dominion as a fail-safe to steal the votes they needed to win. The algorithm was designed to count Trump votes as .75, Biden’s as 1.25 and also to flip as many as it could to tip in Biden’s favor. However, because Trump was winning by so much, it was such a landslide in his favor, the machines broke down when the algorithm couldn’t handle it.

    Trump’s popularity broke Dominion’s software! The Dems panicked, stopped counting votes in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, called in their backup plan, which was to have trucks bring in bogus ballots they would then “hand” count to cover the necessary votes they needed to overcome Trump’s landslide.

    This is why we will win. They overplayed their hand. The fraud is/was too damn big. The software, had it accounted for Trump’s overwhelming number of votes, would most likely have slipped the win towards Biden just enough to make it appear he won. But that didn’t happen and the boots on the ground (the fake mail-in ballots) have exposed themselves. That’s why there are so many affidavits of people saying, “uh, what are all these trucks doing here with pristine ballots that were obviously not mailed?” “Why are they covering up the windows so people can’t see them count?”

    The mainstream is still covering for him as expected, but there’s a reason they called it so fast and are scrambling to make it appear he won and are calling him President Elect. They can’t possibly silence all the people in Wisc, Mich, and Penn (et al) that saw the shenanigans going on during election night. The Demonrats have tried to intimidate these witnesses of course and in some cases have succeeded, but Rudy and team have plenty to go to the next level and win in court.

    Not surprised Medvedev beat Thiem in the final, surely the win over Djokovic was draining and exhausting, having to play another hour of super intense high level tennis in the third set after blowing the 4 mps. But Medvedev is an uncanny, lethal player. I see both as future no. 1s and maybe even both will be next year.

    The truth is the only real freedom there is, and its power is beyond anything the world can offer you.
