    Federer Receives Death Threat in Shanghai

    Very graphic death threat. I hope he stays safe.

    “On October 6, I plan to assassinate Federer for the purpose of tennis extermination,” read the message, posted under the name ‘Blue Cat Polytheistic Religion Founder 07′ on baidu.com.

    The user also posted a doctored image showing a decapitated Federer on his knees on a tennis court, with a masked executioner dressed in black and holding an axe posing next to him

    That's so creepy

    Djokovic and Azarenka won the titles in Beijing. Vika is very close to clinching the year end #1 ranking.

    If Sharapova and Azarenka both have no more tournaments planned the remainder of the year, if Azarenka goes 2-1 in the RR at the YEC and loses in the semis, and Sharapova goes 3-0 in the RR and then wins the YEC, Azarenka would lose the year end #1 to Sharapova. Not that I see that happening.

    Has the creep been apprehended?

    Fan Apologizes for Death Threat

    The fan, who posted on the popular Chinese site Baidu.com under the handle "Blue Cat Polytheism Founder 07" says he got caught up in the heat of a message board debate and said something he didn't mean.
    "I'm terribly sorry," the poster said. "I was arguing with Federer fans and then I wrote something stupid ... I hope that the organizers can understand me, forgive me, and if possible send my apologies to Federer and his family."

    It's still unacceptable.

    it's so true - both men's and women's forums are just odd, it's a whole different language

    as for World Tour Finals qualification, looks like Janko Tipsarevic has the upper hand on the final spot for London with John Isner perhaps sneaking in as well if Juan Martin del Potro cannot participate.

    Yeah, it reminds me of a 49ers player last year who got death threats through Twitter for dropping a pass. Unbelievable.

    Many congratulations to Heather Watson on winning the HP Open in Japan

    Watson becomes the first British woman since Sara Gomer in 1988 to win a WTA title. The great thing about Laura Robson's surge up the rankings is that it has now spurred Watson on to up her game. There is nothing like a domestic rivalry to inspire each of the rivals onto greater heights.

    Watson now moves into the top 50 and moves back ahead of Laura as British number 1.

    I think both Watson and Robson have the potential to break into the top 10 next season.

    Great for Watson. And you are so right. Healthy competition between her and Robson should propel both of them forward. It worked for Henin and Clijsters.

    This is a huge result for Heather Watson and British Women's Tennis in general. That being said, I did think Robson would be the first to win a WTA event... but either way I am thrilled for Heather. First British woman to win in almost 25 years in singles on the WTA

    This really has been such a huge year for British Sport in general and this is just icing on the cake really. Heather is a scrappy player and really earned it. This will spur Laura and Heather on to bigger and better things next season.

    That was an awesome Shanghai final! The 2nd-set tie-break was amazing. Novak's game went south last year after the USO, but not this year.

    I think having both Heather and Laura move up the rankings at the same time will help split the attention from the press.

    Baltacha and Keothavong have had many chances already and have been injured too often to sustain good form. Time to move on.

    All this crazy hype about a player winning a relatively minor tournament has me . I mean, it's a great achievement for Heather, but the British media is as loony as always.

    Well, they have to hype her properly so they can turn on her in a bit, innit?
