To me personally, I love WTF more than some of the slams because its only the top 8 in a round-robin format which means they don't go out after losing just a single match. The only problem is that it is best of 3 sets.
It's a great mini-grand to wrap up the year at London, BUT why do players often ignore WTF? Andy Roddick last year didn't bother to show up (now he might never get the privilege again) and all the other players didn't step up their game
or played seriously enough letting Davydenko win it.
How important is WTF to the players, it is 1500 ATP points after all.
To solve this problem of players not caring enough, would it be good for ATP to upgrade WTF into a Grand Slam, make it worth 2000 points,This could be a good idea
and give it the media coverage of a slam? It would be the indoor grand slam for the top players.
.... MY DEAR dorian,
Won the last year just because he played better of each other.
The prove is that in 2008 he done the final.
Final Tour is important for players.
Roger has won it several times.
And Rafa has said that this tournament is his next goal.
For Rafa it should be a dream to complete this beautiful year, in this way.
The cherry on the top of the cake.
