Andy Murray clinched a spot in the ATP Finals on Thursday after beating Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets at the Paris Masters and then sent a message to his critics by scribbling ”bad year” on a courtside television camera. Following a tumultuous year that saw him change coach and recover from a serious back injury, Murray booked his spot at the season-ending tournament in London by reaching the quarterfinals at the Palais Omnisports with a 6-3, 6-3 win over No. 9 seed Dimitrov. I don’t tend to do that often, but, look, it’s been a hard year, a tough year, but it hasn’t been a bad year.” Up next for Murray will be top-ranked Novak Djokovic, who withstood 12 aces before extending his unbeaten record against Gael Monfils to 11-0 with a 6-3, 7-6 (2) over the Frenchman. Second-seeded Roger Federer kept the pressure on Djokovic in their battle for the year-end No. 1 spot, easily beating French qualifier Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-4 to set up a meeting with Milos Raonic.

Garbine Muguruza moved a step closer to the semifinals by beating favorite Flavia Pennetta of Italy 0-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the group stage at the season-ending WTA Tournament of Champions on Thursday. ”I went to the court really nervous,” Muguruza said adding that she had picked ”the wrong strategy” against Pennetta. ”I had to change something, and then my coach gave me some advice that worked.” Muguruza will wrap up her round robin schedule on Friday against Alize Cornet of France who stayed alive in her bid for a semifinal spot by defeating top-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-1, 6-4. ”I tried my best tennis, but it is not possible for me to play at my highest level right now.” The No. 11 in the WTA ranking lost her opening game on Wednesday in staright sets to Garbine Muguruza.

Despite being one of the smallest players on the Tour, Kei Nishikori’s performances are not going unnoticed at home. Nishikori, who is bidding to become the first Asian-born player to qualify for the season-ending ATP Finals, is enjoying a breakthrough season in which he claimed four titles and reached the U.S. Although he lost in straight sets to Marin Cilic at Flushing Meadows, the 5-foot-10 player’s popularity reached new heights following his excellent run in New York. ”It’s been big change, especially in Japan,” Nishikori said after beating local favorite and former champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 at the Paris Masters on Thursday.

Roger Federer was made to fight all the way by local favorite Jeremy Chardy before reaching the third round of the Paris Masters on Wednesday, while Andy Murray moved one match away from qualifying for the ATP Finals. Federer could have sealed a quicker win but Chardy, who beat him on clay at the Rome Masters earlier this season, saved two match points at 5-4 in the second set before forcing a decider with a stunning crosscourt forehand winner. ”As the match went longer, the better I actually started to play and created more opportunities.” The 33-year-old Federer arrived in Paris undefeated in his past 12 matches on the back of consecutive titles in Shanghai and Basel, trailing top-ranked Novak Djokovic by 490 points. With 2,500 points up for grabs between Paris and at the ATP Finals in London, Federer is looking to clinch the year-end top spot for a record-equaling sixth time.

Caroline Wozniacki started having nightmares of being rolled off the New York City Marathon course in a wheelchair. So going into Sunday’s race, Wozniacki has never covered more than about 13 miles. On Saturday, Wozniacki lost in a third-set tiebreaker to top-ranked Serena Williams in Singapore in the semis of the WTA Finals. Always considered one of tennis’ fittest players, she figured she could squeeze in enough extra running to add to what she already did in her tennis training.

The lead-up to Sunday’s championship match at the WTA Finals suggested Serena Williams would face a major challenge to beat Simona Halep, but then, the No. 1-ranked player has made a career out of performing at her best when it matters most. She did it again in Singapore, dispatching Halep 6-3, 6-0 just four days after a group-stage game between the pair in which the Romanian player dropped only two games and handed Williams her heaviest defeat for 16 years. ”I just started training, because I had such a bad knee in Beijing I didn’t know if I’d be able to play here, and now I have won the Billie-Jean King trophy – I am so excited,” Williams said. Williams changed her approach from the group-stage contest, attacking Halep’s second serve with fierce ground strokes, and regularly rushing the net to cut the points short and prevent her opponent from playing her preferred style.
