WTF 2009 or 2010?

okay so the big blowout is soon here with the top 8 players fighting to conquer the last epic trophy that will end this season. but looking to the players that are fighting for the last 3 spots, i cant really see it top the 2009 players lineup.

2009 was the year fed reconquered the nr1 spot. nadal was injured both mentally and physichly. murray and djokovic was the 2 "challengers" to make the big blow to fed,nadal-instead JM del potro took his shots at the right time and won a slam. Soderling made a fantastic revamp to his old/new game. Davydenko Played flawless at the seasons end and verdasco was part of one of the best matches in 2009 (if not the best)

so if we look to this years players and what the have achived this season, i can atleast tell from my pov, that the upcoming line up for 2010 WTF is really weak.
first of all, davydenko and JMDP isnt there. 2 of all, berdych will prob get a spot but his form is so bad recently he could lose to murray 6-0 6-0... ferrer is a fighter, but i miss JM DP and davy up there. only good with upcoming WTF is that roddick might get the last spot. since im swedish i was to glad for sods apperance in 2009 WTF to feel sympathy for roddick (cuz he is entertaining ofc :P)

just look at the lineup:
2009:
Federer
Nadal
Djokovic
Murray
Del Potro
Davydenko
Verdasco
Soderling

2010
Nadal
Federer
Djokovic
Murray
Soderling
Berdych*
Ferrer*
Roddick*

so do u guys agree? will 2010 WTF be as "BIG" as 2009 WTF?

2010 WTF has no fixer or ball basher. That automatically makes it better.

Let's wait till we see the winner. Depending on who wins it, it'll either be the:

"Shittiest YEC ever in a pathetic weak era" or

"A well deserved win in one of the most competitive tourneys in like forever" or

"Blue clay"

"Frankly My Dear, I don't give a damn"

2009 by a country mile. Everyone was playing much better last year.

Re: WTF 2009 or 2010?

2009 had a better field. Maybe somehow Verdasco and Berdych don't qualify?

Forgot all about that.
Thanks for bringing it up again.

2009 by miles btw, this year since USOpen everybody seems to be in bad form, except for the Djoker.

Re: WTF 2009 or 2010?

Unless Ferrer wins, 09 for me



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Verdasco probably won't qualify, for that he'd have to go deep in Paris... not likely. Berdych is pretty safe though at the moment.

I for one would rather take Ferrer than Verdasco, but that's the only improvement from 2009 imo. I'd prefer to watch in form Kolya and Delpo over Berdych (who I like btw) and Roddick... but it is what it is, right? It still has potential to be a great tournament. Who knows, maybe Berdych somehow wakes from his coma and plays good a few matches.

Re: WTF 2009 or 2010?

At the moment 09 really, everyone there was more than capable of beating each other.

This year's field at the moment is pretty good as well though.

That was such a comical point.

But uh, 2009 felt a little more open and exciting leading up to the WTF. Davydenko/Djokovic clearly being the top 2 players at the end of the season, we had 3 different GS winners, two fairly new top-10 players who could actually play against the big boys consistently (Soderling/Del Potro) and both Federer/Nadal were questionable making it more intriguing.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: WTF 2009 or 2010?

Comparable lineups. Verdasco is replaced by another mug and choker- Berdych. Either Federer and Nadal will pray to get him in their group.

Probably a : Federer/Nadal, Murray, Berdych and Ferrer will be named a Joke Group.
