It's a Masters that you have, though....

Canada is lucky to have even one event.

Canadians have likeable tennis players but asshat fans if MTF is anything to go by. The half-Serb ones are even worse.

Federer made the final last year and both Fed and Djokovic made the final in 2009

Nadal is the only one who can't win Cincy, and even he made the semifinals before.

It's hard enough to find a half decent hitting partner in this god forsaken country. Nobody gives a shit about tennis here. Seriously.

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,

It is the game you will win.

Re: How come Canada has only 1 ATP event?

Ice would be an interesting surface.

There's never been a good Canadian men's player so there is no interest in the sport. An ATP 250/500 without any big names would be a colossal failure. In Montreal/Toronro, people come to see the stars and it's only once a year. Canadians would also watch a Canadian player or Davis Cup but they're not educated enough to watch an week-long event. Most Canadians don't know anyone ranked lower than Murray! So a 32-man tournament where the highest seed is maybe Roddick wouldn't even draw 1000 people. The first Monday would be a disaster.

Monday OOP
(fake names to protect the innocent)

Alex Blowmearseoff[RUS] vs Buck Numbnuts[USA]
Jos Bleau[FRA] vs Sonic Hedgehog[USA]
Bybeiev Rhibodie[KAZ] vs Som Yung Gai[CHN]
Jimmy Jim Jim Shabadoo[USA] vs Al Kaholic[USA]
Claude Themalfachuk [CAN] vs Ed Balls[GBR]

Nobody is going to pay money to see that.

Re: How come Canada has only 1 ATP event?

Perhaps because it is a tournament that has been played since the 1880s. Perhaps tennis is a sport that loves tradition. I don't know...

Until Milos that is, the one player that looks like he could be our messiah. Well there was that other one, but he chose to be disloyal...

Re: How come Canada has only 1 ATP event?

There should be a Canadian Open set in deep winter. Tennis is always played in smoldering heat, why not blistering cold for once?

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson
