A Day for Number Ones

The O2 Arena at night

World number one tennis star Rafael Nadal strolled past his fellow Spaniard in two straight sets of 6-3, 6-2. It seemed that the number three David Ferrer was slightly fatigued, even though he had beaten Nadal three days earlier in Paris. Rafael has come across this season as fitter and stronger since spending the majority of last season out with his knee injury. The Spaniard will be against the débutante Stanislas Wawrinka tomorrow in the afternoon in the third group A match.

For group B Novak Djokovic will be playing the Swiss Roger Federer. It will be a battle between these former world number one’s. But with Roger being the oldest in the competition at 32, the experience is definitely on his side. As these two players have played each other many times in the past it will not be an easy game.

Serbian Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer after going to three sets. Novak won the first set 6-4. Roger took the second set, after it going to a tie breaker. The crowd in the O2 arena were roaring and cheering and the atmosphere came across as a final. The crowd were going behind Federer, as he comes across the people’s favourite because he has been around the tennis circuit for many years. The third set was a breeze for Novak as he won the final set 6-2. In the group B table he goes above Juan Martin del Potro due to the percentage rate of winning games.

Tomorrow will see all of group A going ahead of each other. Fans will have to wait till Thursday to see how the players in group B will cope against each other.
