Rafa Ends Year On Top, Again: Rafael Nadal will celebrate ending the year as world number one after his victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas at the ATP Finals. Even if he doesn’t win the ATP final, he will leave London with the year-end world number one title and trophy.
It is the fifth time Nadal has ended the year ranked first, tying with Federer, Djokovic and Jimmy Connors and becomes the oldest year-end No. 1 in ATP history for a second time, years after many experts thought that Rafa would be retired.

The End of an Institution? Why watching football at your local bar in Spain could soon end!: Sky-high subscription fees means more than 50,000 bar owners in Spain are struggling to make a profit from showing football on their TV screens.
That’s primarily because the main telecoms companies – Movistar, Vodafone and Orange – charge them around €300 a month to have the right to broadcast football in a public place.
Each one of the broadcasters offers its own particular package with the rights to different football leagues only they can show, so for bars that specialize in showing international football and sport, monthly subscription fees near €1,000.
In the case of Movistar’s LaLiga TV Bar – the only TV channel with a license to show Spanish first division matches in a public place – their justification for the pricey fee is that the average football aficionado will spend €13 during the two and half hours they stay at the bar. The reality however suggests that customers don’t spend as much as that.
According to SES Astra, a company that specializes in monitoring TV signals via satellite, 57,000 out of the 120,000 bars, cafés and restaurants in Spain with a TV actually broadcast content illegally, usually via pirate websites. “Illegally streaming or broadcasting football can result in a piracy lawsuit being opened up against you, with fines of more than €6,000 and the temporary closure of your establishment,” Movistar has warned bar owners across the country. “It can even result in prison sentences for the culprits,” SES Astra director Luis Sahún warned.
With exorbitant sports TV licenses unlikely to be reduced and increasingly stringent rules surrounding illegal broadcasting in Spain, many cash-strapped bar owners are now faced with a difficult choice.
Is it the end of football showing in the background in Spanish bars?
Probably not, but it may be a rarity rather than a mainstay. (And what will this really accomplish? A relatively insignificant few extra million euros for some huge tech companies. In the end the real beneficiaries may be the radio stations while the small, family run local big-screen tv vendors take a beating. Ed.)
