good tournaments to start rise where all american mugs playing
I agree. Neither one of these players would have won two matches in Marseille, and yet this is a semi-final of a 500 event. As if the quality of play isn't awful enough, they don't even spend the money to have hawkeye (which has had a huge effect in several of the matches this tournament).
Somebody's got to win these tournaments though, so hats off to Raonic for taking advantage of these weak North American tournaments...
