A seventh title this year, a classy gesture and a world number 1 spot approaching, no more doubt, Andy is the man of the end of this season. Unlike the others, who are celebrating Halloween and the arrival of the winter break, the Scot has no time to lose…
1- Andy Murray (NE).
Winner of the Vienna tournament (his seventh this season) after defeating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final (6-3, 7-6), Andy Murray is on good form.
He’s now just behind Novak Djokovic in the ATP ranking.
And could even steal the world number 1 spot from him if these conditions are reunited.
Since May, the Scot has, in any case, an astounding record.
How do you recognize someone who’s living the good life ? With no doubt, when you see them greet the victims of his aces among the audience.
2- Dominika Cibulkova (NE).
Dominika has won the BNP Paribas WTA Finals of Singapore after defeating the world number 1, Angelique Kerber, in the final (6-3 6-4).

He also had the time to lay down with his dog.
And to look back to his past to remain positive.
6- Maria Sharapova (-1).

And the twins, winners of the quarter-final against the pair Cuevas-Troicki (6-4, 4-6, 10-7), haven’t missed out on the party. If they lost afterwards in the semi-final against the duo Kubot-Melo, that wasn’t the most important thing. “We’ve been looking at this number, 1000, for many years. This was a big goal for us”, said Bob after the match. Notice that Thomas ‘Boom Boom’ Muster was by their sides.
