Yes, in a match made in Changeover purgatory, Xavier Malisse is now coaching Bernard Tomic, at least until the end of the year. So. Yeah. Should be, well, interesting.

Matt Zemek over at Attacking the Net has you covered if you missed the action in Shanghai, and Chris Chase at For the Win has a breakdown of how Federer could still snag the No. 1 ranking.

Courtney Nguyen continues to kill it over in Asia. In her latest dispatches, she talks to Alison Lee–the only female on the ATP board–about tennis in Asia and catches up with Jack Sock. If you could take a selfie with anyone in the world who would it be?

Sock: I love Jimmy Fallon, actually. I watch all his shows I think he’s hilarious. Maybe Derek Jeter. He’s such a legend. Three items to take with you to a desert island.

Sock: Is the item a person as well? Can be…

Sock: Kendall Jenner, Chipotle and if there’s wi-fi, a computer so I can follow along with what’s going on in the world.
