Blackrock Masters

Its that time of year when the old guys play their big end of season tournament. This year Pistol Pete is making his debut. And Jamie Murray is playing in the doubles; because he can't win any matches on the proper tour he feels he has to go and play on the seniors tour.

Anyway, this can be a place to discus the matches, etc.

Re: Blackrock Masters

Good thread, it will of course be moved to another section of the forum so that we can discuss Jeff Tarango and players smoking.

Re: Blackrock Masters

It could still be a good tournament with this field...but it wasn't what i was expecting. Wasn't this event supposed to be the "marquée" Seniors event of the year? Having 8 players is fine, but it should near-enough reflect the top 8 Seniors rankings (not that anyone is too arsed about collecting points anyway) and no WC should be offered.

Where are Haarhuis, Bruguera, Rios, Leconte etc?

I don't think Pete is as big a favourite as many are harping on about...plenty of dangerous guys there...Pioline, Forget etc. But he'd still be my pick of the bunch.

Re: Blackrock Masters

It is still quite a good field, except Bates and maybe Cash. I miss Stich in this list, wasn't he top 8 too?

Re: Blackrock Masters

If Goran, Rios, Haarhuis were playing instead of some others, it would of been interesting/good.

Re: Blackrock Masters

I was pretty impressed by Stich when he was playing in that german even last year which was shown on german TV channel Pro7.

Anyways, any way we'll be able to see some of those matches?
