Turin ATP Finals Groups

As expected, Rafael Nadal received another favorable “random” draw and was protected in his group by not having to face Novak Djokovic. Dating back to 2020 their last four meetings were all on clay.

The last time Nadal beat Djokovic on a hard court was at 2013 US Open final 62 36 64 61. Djokovic leads the overall head to head 30-29 vs. Nadal.

36 year old Nadal, currently ranked no. 2, can clinch the year end no. 1 ranking next week if certain scenarios play out in his favor at the Nitto ATP World Tour Finals in Turin, Italy. Tsitsipas also has a chance to become world no. 1.

    We all know what Uncle Toni does behind the scenes with the “random” draws. But just curious—does he work the U.S. “elections” too? 😛

    Tennis draws should all be mechanical and easily verified (like in the old days), just as all voting should be done in person on paper ballots, hand-counted in front of multiple witnesses (from both parties), and wrapped up the very same day of the election. And absentee ballots should only be allowed for those with excellent, verifiable reasons.

    Anyway, this is yet another reason that tennis “results” have just become more fake news. 🤡

    Just curious, Scoop—have you ever heard of a manual/mechanical tennis draw being rigged? You know, one where they draw chips/balls from a bowl or something?

    No not heard that but anything is possible. Isner playing Mahut at Wimbledon 2 had to be set up.

    True. How was the Wimbledon 2011 draw made, though? Was the whole thing manual or electronic?
