Hamburg, such a good event, with traditions to the 1890's, a long list of great champions, replaced by a clown show.

Yeah, pretty much. It felt more connected, with better preparation for RG.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Yep, Madrid just doesn't cut it. With the amount of money the top players earn now there has to be more to a tournament than just cash.

Bye Shanghai. Madrid hardcourt again... Hamburg back, please!

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Re: Would you like it if Hamburg came back and replaced Madrid 1000?

I really have some great memories when it comes to Hamburg. I think Germany should have never lost this tournament (well, it still exists, but you know what I mean). It was very well organized, great crowd. I like Mardid too, except for this blue clay nonsense. I understand that China is the biggest country in the world and tennis needs to be popularized everywhere but still ... when I see those empty court (no crowd) it makes me really sad. well, unless you have Roger, Djoko or Rafa playing ... the problem is they can't be everywhere.
