Miami WC. What do you think about them?

Blake, Harrison, Raonic, Sock and Tomic.

Well... I want to know what MTF think about the desition of giving WC to these players.


My thoughts:

Blake: Well... Some people say Blake is done. I don't think so, I think he could give something to the tennis world, and reach QF with an easy draw (He didn't get that in IW).
Americans want Blake to play, he's their homeboy and he had great moments (ex N1 of America, finalist of the YEC). It's an economic desition to put blake in the MD.

Harrison: He speaks for himself. Reaching R4 in a masters and his tennis level is worth the WC.

Raonic: This is probably his last WC (if he doesn't get injuries), in the next tournaments he'll be seed. (What a jump... From WC to seed).

Sock: I personally don't agree here.
He's the USO junior winner. But he didn't do nothing besides that.
He reached the R3 in the Dallas challenger and I think he got eliminated early in another challenger (Can anyone confirm this?). Since USO10 I didn't know anything about this player.
He's the same age as Harrison, I know this couldn't be a fact to know the tennis level of a player, but I don't think it's the time to give him a WC.

Tomic: Well... He played very well in Australia.
With an easy draw he could reach R3 I think... I hope he play so many more challengers than in 2010 and get finally into the top 100.
Then we could analyze his tennis level with more details.
He probably deserves this WC. Don't blame it, Bernard.

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

Harrison and Raonic have earned them, Tomic needs to grind out more tournaments from the bottom and less WC, Blake's WC should have gone to Karlovic.

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

I agree with Sock's WC. Right now he seems to be second best US teenager (of course Kudla is higher in rankings but Sock leads in H2H vs Kudla).
Who else anyway? Donny Young?

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

Personally, I'd give it to Karlovic.
But i'm a big Ivo fan, my opinion isn't fair.
Maybe Young... Or... Why not Dimitrov? I mean... IW gave one to Berankis.

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

I have no issue with any of them other than Tomic. I think there must be some money involved there. I'm sure Blake can still draw a crowd.

Only Tomic deserves WC.

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

Blake is a waste of WC, but as pointed out, he still probably draws some crowd, so the organizers perspective is different. Harrison and Raonic (why does he need one, isn't he qualified by the time of Miami entry list?) deserve one, Sock is a young hope, while I'm not a fan of tons of WCs for them, an odd one is fine and understandable. Tomic should for once earn his place in the MD.

Just like he deserved it in the Dallas challenger?

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

What's the purpose of giving a WC to a player who has a direct acceptance? Only youngsters like Sock should be given one, seriously Blake is finished for high-level.

The ones for Blake and Tomic are a joke, the rest is okay.

I think they should re-grant the WC orginally given to Tomic to Dr. Ivo.

Still shining: Roger Federer / Andy Murray / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Stars of Tomorrow: Nick Kyrgios / Kyle Edmund / Borna Coric / Francis Tiafoe

You can think this or that, but in the end IMG does not give a shit about it...

Re: Miami WC. What do you think about them?

Both Tomic and Blake passed their first round in Indian Wells,so they probably more deserved than some of the MD players.The list is okay for me.

Tomic should never get another WC for as long as he lives after his performance in Dallas. The twat.
