Why the seeds are falling in Miami?

What is going on? Why are the seeded players falling so fast at the Sony Ericsson. Is it the surface or what can it be?

Re: Why the seeds are falling in Miami?

First off because we are living in a parallel universe
But truthfully for me it is because men's tennis is very deep. There are lots of very good players that on any given day in any given tounament will just be able to put it all together. We were a bit lulled over the last few years because Nadal and Federer were so dominant but that was not the norm I think.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

We have seen worse...

And it's all part of this 2008 paralel universe, my friend. When a favourite wins a match is almost an upset now.

Tennis is a great sport, anyone can beat anyone. Unlike football where you know teams like Man U will never lose to a small team in the Champion's League.

A lot of people on MTF will have looked at the draw and said that virtually none of the seeds are guaranteed to go through and it wouldn't be a surprise if they didn't however for so many to have fallen in unison is most definitely surprising.

Really?

Surely that depends on how one views it..

Either..
The top players are weaker so they are getting beaten more regularly by below average players, Or...
The level of play is high from No1 right through to No150, thus displaying the huge depth in strength of the modern ATP tour.

I would plump for the latter..
