Well deserved win to Hurkacz but another disappointing loss for Rublev.
Not a bad year for Rublev with winning Monte Carlo & 3 QF's in the slams but he needs to calm down if he wants to get to another level.

Looked at the Tokyo draw yesterday. Pleased to see a bunch of Aussie boys in there though most had tough R1 opponents.

jordan Thompson had the most unwinnable one but then smashes out Zverev in straight sets lol.
 
Would of been nice to see a couple of the other boys win, this Asian swing could of been a bit better.

Great win for Thommo though, hopefully over his injury.

Alex is up shortly
 
Alex has put way too much pressure on himself to qualify for Turin, now way he should be losing to a Draper on one leg.

Good jinx

Thought Thommo might have shot his load with the win over Zverev.

Was even stevens with Shelton through the first set but manages to pull ahead 7-6 with a clutch TB win.

Poppy (who upset Khachanov) & Demon also chances of at least making the quarters in Tokyo.

13 di Minaur
37 Popyrin
40 Purcell
54 Vukic
57 Thompson
60 O'Connell
67 Kokkinakis
69 Hijikata
94 Kubler

Not a bad year for the Aussie lads.

Alcaraz didn't play last years ATP finals & Djokovic won it so a big points shift could happen.
A pity if it did, Djokovic has probably stopped caring about ranking but he is still clearly the best tennis player.

As Alcaraz is missing Basel Djokovic will start with a 500 point lead to Paris and Turin.
If Alcaraz doesn't play Paris then he'll likely fall further behind Djokovic.
If Djokovic wins Paris it's going to be very difficult for Alcaraz (or Medvedev for that matter) to chase him down.

Ben Shelton makes his way into first ATP final after recovering from a set and double break down. Incredible. His court smarts are really impressing me lately, and he really does seem to have great mental toughness. US Open, Shanghai, Tokyo, what a set of tournaments for the 21 year old.

Auger-Aliassime seems to have come out of his slump, into the finals of the Swiss Indoors after taking out Rune.
Vienna getting more top players so the Sinner & Medvedev final should be better, I think it starts at midnight so the timing to watch isn't that bad either.

Battle of the slumpers there. I saw a little of FAA's quarterfinal and still looked completely out of sorts. But managing to get the wins this week.

Bit of a odd occurrence on the Challenger tour today with a final taking place in Adelaide today. James Duckworth won the title by beating a 19 year old from Hong Kong. That's not that out of the ordinary but only for the fact James beat the same player in a challenger in Shenzen just last week. Pretty amazing they both travelled that far just to play each other in a final again a week later.

James can be knocking the door on a top 100 berth again if he has another big week before the end of the year. There's a challenger in Sydney this upcoming week.

Is there going to be a Nitto ATP Finals thread?

Tsisitpas looks out of his league this year.
Really keen for Rublev to fire and go through
