Good morning. Today in Shanghai the final two Round Robin matches in the Gold Group will be played. First Novak Djokovic plays Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Djokovic has already secured his place in the semifinal, and Tsonga is eliminated, havinnng lost his first two matches. However, the match isn't meaningless, particularly not for Djokovic, because if he wins the tournament without losing a match, and if Roger Federer is eliminated when he plays Andy Murray tomorrow, Djokovic would finish the year at number two in the rankings.

The second match today is between Juan Martin Del Potro and Nikolay Davydenko, and the winner will finish second in the group, to play the semifinal against the winner of the Red Group.

Please use this space to discuss the matches, and any other tennis-related issues. After the matches are over, off-topic conversations are OK.

As always, enjoy the tennis.
