Neither Basel nor Valencia’s finals were completely as expected with the No. 1 seeds in both tournaments being knocked out. In Basel Rodger Federer glided to victory over Kei Nishikori who had defeated Djokovic in the Semi-Finals, 6-1, 6-3. In Valencia a tough match saw Marcel Granollers taking the title away from Juan Monaco 6-2, 4-6, 7-6(3).
With Nadal already out of the Paris Masters and Djokovic not playing his best, could Murray be the No.1 seed and take another Masters series title? This is the last tournament before ATP World Tour Finals in London so there will be other players looking to secure their place at the last tournament of the season.
