Bought tickets for the US recently. Praying to see him. HAVE to see him or Murray or will be in a deep, deep cream puff.

Well jel. I've seen Federer twice at the tour finals but it's just not the same as a slam.

You'll be in deep with @Creampuff

:matron:

In all seriousness, never attended a tennis match, not sure if it would be brilliant and completely boring.

It's for the QFs. Pretty good seats as well. Leaving before the SFs and Fs so that's the best I can get. 

Order of preference: Fed, Murray, Nadal, Djok.

Make it happen, God.

It'll make his hissy fit that resulted in his name change look tame, I guarantee.

Missed this, what happened?

What day have you got booked? Day or night session?

QFs usually on separate days and two different sessions, so you will get a woman's match as well. Hope you get lucky!

Canny mind, but he had a wee huff and his name was changed from Compton to Creampuff.

That seemed to suit him quite well so it was decided by the forum that it should remain, and it has to this day.

Me neither, but I can't see it being anything other than a good experience, at very least as a one off.

It's something different, and I like the sport, so should be fun.

Looking at the schedule, it's not outside the realms of possibility that Federer ends the season as Number 1...

Nadal could be world number 1 next week if he has a good run in this tournament.

Nadal loses to Shapovalov.

If Federer goes on to win the tournament, then he'll be 10 points behind Rafa heading into Cincinnati; and a straight shoot out for World Number 1.

Can't ever remember seeing such a poor QF line-up at a masters event.

Haase vs Scwartzman

Agut vs Fed

Shapovalov vs Mannarino

Zverev vs Anderson

Zverev just beat Fed 6-3 6-4.

Federer pulls out of Cincinnati, thus confirming Rafael Nadal takes over world number 1 stop.

5 of the world's top 7 are out injured and Zverev will probably be tired from his win this week.
