Which is the bigger/most important tournament?

I'm making this thread due to dimonator123 harassing me via PM AGAIN.

Tennis Masters Cup or Miami?

I think TMC cause the tournament gives you more points and it funds more prize money for even fewer players. Seems clear to me.

What do you all think?

Re: Which is a bigger tournament ?

It depends on your definition of 'bigger'. TMC is very important to the top 8 players, to the end of the year points race, and it is the creme of the crop (despite some of the very lopsided results the past few years). Miami is a huge deal, 10 days, coed, parties, meetings, big draw and all that hype.

But, it's harder to hold up the TMC trophy at the end of the year, so I'll agree with you. TMC it is.

(and if you put him on your ignore list, you won't get his harassing PM's anymore. Have you reported him to the mods?)

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

TMC is more important, that is what I mean.

No I've not, and I am NOT starting this to cause another arguement, I only stated he was throwing a bunch of messages to me through PM again to show people where this rooted from, and not to sound completely random.

TMC is most important. Miami is only as big as/equal to Indian Wells in the big scheme of things.

Re: Which is the bigger/most important tournament?

To me this is hardly questionable, people are going out of their way to qualify for this nearer the ender part of the year, but more essentially it adds up to what you have done the whole year.

The Tennis Masters Cup is clearly more important than Miami or any of the masters series events.

Re: Which is the bigger/most important tournament?

TMC is more important. To play there, first of all, means that you have had an incredibly good season. To win, means that you are capable of beating everyone else who has had incredible seasons

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Which is the bigger/most important tournament?

Miami is nothing, a laughable AMS tournament (because, you play best of 3 with a one-day-break. That's like holidays for the players, like a women's tournmanet.
Miami and Indian Wells are bloated nonsense tournaments.
