Standing ovation, game ball, whatever you want to call it – Huge props to Davydenko for stepping up and winning the year-end championships. The biggest win of his career. When I’m looking at the year-end final eight photograph, he’s always the least likely guy to even be in the photo and he’s the one you’d never pick to win it. Time to remove the Rodney Dangerfield tag and call it like it is; the guy is a great player.

It’s the semis in Paris, my favorite time of year. I missed being there; it’s one of my all time favorite venues as a player and as a coach. My son Zach got his first hair cut there in the players lounge when he was 11 months old. If you ever get a chance to go to an indoor event, this is the one. Tomorrow’s line up has Nadal playing the Joker and Gael Force Monfils against the dark horse Radek Stepanek.

The WTA wraps a winning season. The drama for the No. 1 ranking between Safina and Serena went out the window with Safina’s pulling the rip cord in her round robin first round match. I actually think it’s a good thing for Safina to have not finished the year #1. She had so many nay sayers and this will possibly give her some incentive to earn it and win a major in 2010.
