Earlier in the week, Lindsay shared her wishlist. I jokingly said that she might end up 0 for 5 on wishes, even though I am rooting for some of them to come true. Last week Amy shared her five wishes for the 2013 tennis season, and I think she has a great chance of getting at least two of those wishes in 2013. Without further ado, here are my five wishes for the 2013 season:
That’s it folks. No more ATP tennis for 2012. Challengers and exhibitions only. Having withdrawal symptoms already? Well, I’m here to help. I had fun looking back at the under-the-radar moments from the WTA season a couple of weeks ago, and so now I want to bring you 10 things about the ATP season that might have already slipped your mind.

Welcome to a special LIVE edition of How the Match Was Won! Since our US readers might be stuck in work for this Monday final, we figured that it might be a good idea to give folks a chance to follow along with the last big match of the 2012 ATP season, since Davis Cup […]
After going down 4-6 in the 1st set tiebreaker today, Andy Murray cracked his racquet on the floor of the O2 Arena, visibly frustrated. After all, he had just lot what ended up being the biggest point of the first set (maybe the whole match), and handed a minibreak to his Swiss rival. As the Scot walked to his chair to pick up a new stick, you could hear a smattering of boos coming from the stands.
Today at the 02 Arena: bad scheduling has Federer and Del Potro squaring off first, even though the result of their match could render Ferrer-Tipsarevic meaningless. The first blemish on the otherwise impeccable scheduling throughout the week!
Here are the scenarios (as far as I can tell): If Del Potro beats Federer, he is in the semis, no matter what Ferrer does. However, if Del Potro wins in straight sets, he will win the group – if he wins in three, Federer wins the group. If Federer wins in two or three sets, he’ll win the group.
