Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

4 top10 vs 2 top20

Tsonga, Fish, Tipsarevic, Del Potro vs Isner and Roddick(out of top20 after this event)


nice to see that Fish has learned a lesson

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

If more top 10 players went to North America or South America after the Australian Open they would gain a whole shitload more of points than going to Europe.

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

Roddick isn't getting bad now because he plays in the US. He's getting old, if he went to play Marseille he would be crushed

and Fish is even older

Roddick would never go anywhere but USA cause he always was avoiding strong field. Has he ever won event outside America except Queens? maybe just a couple cause he has 30 titles

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

Marseille is one of the better 250.s together with Sthlm. A shame Mempis goes on as a 500 year after year.

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

I don't know if it's changed this year, but Memphis doesn't even have a challenge system. That should automatically make you 250 or less.

Memphis is a laughable tournament. Elvis Presley died in that city and that's all about that place.

Fish has a $300K reason to play Marseille instead of Memphis

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

Wise choice for those players who're playing in Memphis instead of Marseille: more points for them.
Players have money to go to South Africa and other far places, and they prefer Marfail to GOATmphis?

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

Why are there so many obscure 500 events at random times during the year. I mean they're not all well placed for the top guys to complete their commitments. Just look at Washington. I wasn't even aware Memphis was a 500 event .

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

If I was a player, it would be a no doubt situation to play in Memphis than Marseille. Easy field for a 500, lots of points and money to be won.

Unless Marseille is guaranteeing Fish a large appearance fee, which is why he's playing there.

Re: Marseille ATP250 vs Memphis ATP500

The placement of Memphis isn't obscure, it's 2 weeks before IW, and Miami

Washington is only obscure this year because it's with the Olympics, normally washington is the week before Montreal/Toronto, that's not obscure either

I´ve always thought the same thing, especially for lower ranked players there are many points to be won at San Jose, Memphis and Delray Beach, the field is so weak.

Apparently Fish is getting a nice appearance fee from Marseille. And considering he played Davis Cup in EUrope and will play in Dubai, it makes sense to stay in Europe.
