Singles Action

(1) Novak Djokovic vs. (3) Andy Murray - 8:45 a.m. ET

Tennis fans won't want to miss this U.S. Open final rematch between the world's No. 1- and No. 3-ranked players, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Murray got the better of Djokovic in their five-set thriller in Flushing Meadows last September, but the Serbian star avenged his bitter defeat with a win over Murray at the Shanghai Rolex Masters final in October.

Djokovic-Murray is without question the sport's top emerging rivalry, and missing the next chapter on Day 3 from the ATP World Tour Finals would be nothing short of a shame.

 

(5) Tomas Berdych vs. (7) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - 2:45 p.m. ET

Both Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga lost their first match on Monday, which means that the loser of Wednesday's match will likely be headed home early.

The pressure will be on Tsonga more so than Berdych, though. The French star failed to win a set against Djokovic in his first match which is surprising considering he finished as the tournament's runner-up in 2011.

Regardless of who wins, Djokovic and Murray are the favorites to advance to the semifinals out of Group B. 

 

Doubles Action

(4) Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau vs. (5) Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna - 7 a.m. ET

Much like Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Wednesday, each of these two pairs are in desperate need of a victory to avoid ensuring an early exit from London. I have to give the edge to Lindstedt and Tecau considering they have more experience at the World Tour Finals.

Bhupathi and Bopanna are making their first appearance at the circuit's final tournament, and their first-match defeat to the eighth-seeded team of Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen proved just how much they have left to learn in order to win consistently against the world's best. 

 

(2) Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor vs. (8) Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen - 1 p.m. ET

The second doubles match of the day will pit two fast-starting pairs against one another. Mirnyi and Nestor won a thrilling matchup with Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau on Monday, and they will attempt to earn their second match win of the tournament on Wednesday.

Beating Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen won't be an easy task; the eighth-ranked team proved its a legitimate contender on Tuesday after surviving an epic back-and-forth clash.
