Folks, Rafa out of WTF due to abdominal issues and is set to have a arthroscopic surgery on his ankle today as well 😮😔
This means 4 things:
1.) Novak ends the year No. 1
2.) John Isner is in WTF now
3.) Khachanov is the alternate and Coric second alternate
4.) Federer- if he wins the tournament without losing a match, he will end the year No. 2 in the world.
Sad for Rafa and I hope he can be healthy next year- and for those of you Fedfans who want fed to be G.O.A.T. the one person who is likely to have a strong argument is Djokovic. He has already been No. 1 for 223 weeks and he is back again. He has nothing to defend in first half of next year- so he will likely stay there for atleast another season. Federer’s record 310 weeks as No. 1 which seemed totally uncatchable are in danger:(
