The Daily Bagel is your dose of the interesting reporting, writing and quipping from around the Internet.

• Sometimes you go a bit numb watching so many tennis matches. That video of the third-set tiebreaker between Janko Tipsarevic and Thomas Berdych was a stark reminder as to how a match can turn on a dime.

• The team gathers around the roundtable and gives thanks.

• Jon Wertheim tells everyone to calm down about Rafael Nadal's slump.

• Steve Tignor takes a look at how the British tabloids are covering the World Tour Finals.

• Rafa complained and people are listening. The LTA is actively lobbying for some tax changes that might actually make playing in Britain viable.

• The ATP's daily diaries are good read for the little details that sometimes escape us. • Non-tennis: Thanksgiving: A good day for humans, a bad day for these guys.
