    Agree with this, should be interesting how those 2 go against each other this next decade

    Good thing for these guys is they were born young enough they won't have to deal with Federer, Nadal & Djokovic for their whole careers.

    Nadal has pulled out from London due to injury.

    Isner has taken his spot

    Bit of a shame we rarely seem to have the best 8 players in London these days.

    It's weird seeing Isner's name in the top 8.

    Sock last year, Isner this year, just keeping up the tradition of American jokers making the end of season finals.

    I wouldn't call Isner a joker, a GS semi-finalist (very close to a final), Masters 1000 winner this year and has been consistently been around the 10-20 mark for almost a decade. Well deserved in my view, glad he made it there once in his career. Sock is a different story

    The NextGen finals start tonight with Alex playing an Italian WC first up.

    Yeah, I could agree with some Isner years in the past, but his better patches of the season were top 10 worthy and clutch, dare I say peak. Far better overall season than Sock 2017. Isner was a worthy top 10 player in 2018, like it or not. Typically, his 10-20 year rests on a few 250 cheapies and a deep masters run. This season had more substance and playing to seed in draws.

    ADM in good form at Milan. 3-0'd the group. Tsitsipas also 3-0'd his group, Rublev is still on the road back, and Munar had a solid season worthy of a SF run. Won his first Challenger in a final against ADM as well.

    Alex is in the final so it's been a superb year. He's doing what Nick and Bernard have failed to follow up on so far. For whatever reasons.

    Yeah he's had a fantastic year, been great to see and I wish he took Cilic's scalp at the US open.

    Alex is finishing off the year strongly, showing great durability for a youngster.

    This gave me a laugh! Roger actually does look like some random guy you might see on a train.

    Nadal and JMDP out is a huge blow to the end of season finals, two of the top 4 players in the world missing.

    Tsitsipas def Alex in 4 sets.

    Tsitsipas has had a great year, and recently won most improved player

    The young guys finished off the year strongly. Cant wait to see them play next year.


    Interesting choice, Nadal winning sportsmanship.

    I forgot he was playing today.


    Good win to Nishikori, the last couple of times he lost to Federer

    So instead of the big 3, it'll be the big Vs?
