Djokovic is playing - his only hope to get into the EOY Championship in Turin would be if he wins in this Tournament in the final and all of Auger-Aliassime, Fritz and Hurkacz go out in early rounds in the tournament - otherwise his chances are very, very slim.

5     Stefanos Tsitsipas                                   vs      Tommy Paul

 The performance by Nadal was pathetic to watch and can only be attributed to him not being match-fit as was clear especially in the deciding set where he lost  6-1 confirmed it.    There was a scene on TV where after the second set he was sitting looking very worried and shaking his head that confirmed something was very wrong in his case - losing the te-breaker after making 2 double-faults in the process.    After watching that show I wonder whether he will even bother to turn up at the Turin End of Year Championship only 10 days away.

My assessment of Medvedev's performance confirms something I have observed over in 2022.   Medvedev's game has gone down badly over the period.   His serving is still good enough - the  rest of the game shows total lack of real attacking ability.    His hits are slow and opens the way for opponents to attack and forces Medvedev in to making mistakes,       

The fact that all of Fritz, Hurkacz, Norrie and Sinner lost in Round 2 means they are out of the Turin tournament and opens the way for Djokovic to get entry into the tournament.   

8 of the 16 seeded players lost in either Round 1 or Round 2 - and the way the tournament is going more seeds may be going out today.   I do think only 2 of the seeds are sure of going through to the quarterfinals - there are indeed question marks as to the other 6 seeded players.

This is the second tournament won by Nure in October/November this year and in fact the only two tournaments he won in his career.   Although he was rather up and down in 2022  he at last is showing how really good a youngster he really is.   Congrats and hope there are plenty more coming.
