Both Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer had been putting on master classes throughout the ATP World Tour Finals and yet when the two finally got to meet... the result was not what we guessed.
Federer Faults in Final
Federer had scintillated the British crowd on Saturday as he came from a set down and saving match points, to outlast fellow Swiss, Stanislas Wawrinka. However, this was all he wrote in 2014.
The World No. 2 rose on Sunday morning to find his back too painful to play leaving a disgruntled Djokovic to collect his fourth ATP World Tour Finals crown without hitting a ball.
"You never like to win like this, especially these big matches against big rivals," said the World No.1
What about the crowd?
With a stadium packed full of tennis fans frothing at the mouth to see some quality tennis, Andy Murray stepped up and played an exhibition against Djokovic. He also played a doubles match with John McEnroe, Pat Cash and Tim Henman.
Not seeing the two best tennis players in the world face off is hard to swallow, but points like the one below help to ease the grief. After all, as Beast Universe CEO, Joseph Schmulian says, "a laugh is a win in itself!"
The tennis world will now turn to the Davis Cup Final as Swizerland and France face each other in France on November 21-23. Lets hope Federer is healthy by then.
