ATP World Tour Fan...ME...Riding High On the End of Year Results with the #Underdog.
Everybody who follows the ATP World Tour will remember this year as the year Rafael Nadal won the comeback of the year award and earned the year end #1 ranking. Rafa is amazing! This time last year most people would have said we miss him but we won't be surprised if Rafa doesn't come back. That is a huge story.
I am now a big Stan Wawrinka fan. Not because he is such a shining star. He sparkled at the Australian Open back in January. I tend to follow a lot of my tennis idols on Twitter and Facebook. I actually write them fan mail all the time. I am floored at becoming a Stan fan at the precise moment he became the miracle of the year. Rafa recovered...Stan has transformed... I call him an underdog and he is by every definition of the word THE UNDERDOG in the final four this year at the ATP World Tour End of Year Championship.
Back in January I told Stan I was rooting for him to make it to the final top eight players for the End of Year Championship. And a few days ago when he qualified in Paris I was mildly surprised...BUT NOW HE IS IN THE SEMI-FINALS. I don't care who you are this is amazing. He is a real threat to all three players. All of them are jaded...exhausted...and pumped up to win. It's anybody's trophy. I'm rooting for Rafa or Stan because this is one title that has eluded Rafa and it is just an amazing opportunity for Stan...and either one of them just might do it!
