While Novak Djokovic was out dominating the
tennis would, we were busy compiling the latest and greatest stories from around the tennis
world. Hey tennis fans, I’m Blair Henley and welcome
to the Tennis Now news update. Yes, Novak Djokovic lived up to his Number
1 billing with a 7-6, 7-5 win over Roger Federer to take his second straight ATP World Tour
Finals title. Djokovic netted $1.76 million for his efforts…not
bad at all. And he just happened to charm the media along
the way, hand delivering chocolates to the journalists in the press room after his semifinal
win over Juan Martin Del Porto. Needless to say, they loved it. The Djoker arrived for that particular press
conference a half hour late because of some extra treatment he received in the training
room. He explained it this way:
“I needed to be fresh and ready for a press conference, as you guys always can be very
challenging.” Oh, Nole. Djokovic has no doubt been impressive this
week, but the Bryan Brothers? Not so much. The Bros failed to make it to the year-end
final for the first time in five years, to which we say, winning gold medals and setting
every doubles record known to man must really sap your energy. Last week, Andy Murray posted a picture of
his meeting with Bear Grylls of Man vs. Wild fame. We hear Grylls gave him some tips to survive
Roger Federer’s cross court forehand – apparently it had something to do with catching Fed in
a homemade rabbit trap – but after watching Murray’s 7-6, 6-2 loss to the Swiss, it
would seem the lesson was sadly unsuccessful. But, of course, there’s no reason for Murray
to be feeling down. He’s had an amazing year, complete with
a gold medal and his first Grand Slam title. His assessment? “If you told me last year that I would be
sitting in this position now with the results I’ve had in the last 12 months, I would
have signed up for that straight away.” And Maria Sharapova was in India this weekend
promoting her collaboration with the U.K.-based construction company Homestead. The French Open champ was reportedly paid
millions to lend her name to a project southwest of New Delhi. And why not? Who wouldn’t love to say they live in the
Sharapova. And that’s all for today’s Tennis Now
News Update! Are you happy Djokovic won it all in London? Let us know in the comment section below or
