World Tour Finals Day 6 Picks 2013 (November 9th)

Group A was concluded last night and we already know one of the Semi Final matches as Novak Djokovic will be taking on Stanislas Wawrinka on Sunday and hopefully they can end the season with a match to rival the one they played in one of the first tournaments of the season at the Australian Open.

We also know Rafael Nadal will take on the winner of the Juan Martin Del Potro and Roger Federer match which will be played on Saturday afternoon and that is obviously the match that will garner most of the headlines as the season has just three days left to go (outside of the Davis Cup Final which is played next week).


Roger Federer win 2-1 v Juan Martin Del Potro: The last four matches between Juan Martin Del Potro nd Roger Federer have all come on an indoor hard court and it was Federer who had to snap a 3 match losing run against the Argentinian with a win in Paris last week.

All of the matches have had to be decided by a final set and there is every chance that this will be another match that goes the distance as both players can get a little hot at time and run through and take a set.

Both players can sometimes also lose their way and throw in a poor game which will give their opponent a chance and I do believe that this is going to be a quality match with twists and turns.

Del Potro has won both matches played at the World Tour Finals in London, but I do think Federer has looked in a better place physically of the two players and I think he can find a way to just get the better of the big man for the second time in two weeks. Federer has looked vulnerable though so it would be a real surprise to me if he was to win this one in straight sets and a small interest on the 17 time Grand Slam Champion winning this in 3 sets is the call.


Novak Djokovic - 5.5 games v Richard Gasquet: This is a dead rubber for both men, but I think Novak Djokovic will be the more motivated as he will want to get this done with minimal fuss to keep his winning run intact and also not to waste too much energy for the Semi Final and potential Final in the next couple of days.

Djokovic has the return game to give Gasquet fits and he defends well enough to really take advantage of some of the movement issues that the Frenchman displays at times on the court.

It is no surprise that Djokovic has dominated the head to head with Gasquet as his game matches up so well against Gasquet's. With the added issue of this being the last game of the season for Gasquet, there is every chance that he could fall away in the second set after losing a close one in the first and I do believe the World Number 2 gets ready for the Semi Final in style.
