Beijing, I just don't like those Asian tournaments. Neither I like Dubai, but Beijing has weaker field.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Re: What Is Your Least Favorite ATP 500 Event?

Hard to tell, objecticavely it should be probably Memphis, but i personally like it - one of faster tournaments out there, but generally crap players and no Hawk-eye before this year.

Dubai only haters can put there, because generally it has best player thanks to money

Among clay 500s Barca is easily best with many top player playing there + Rafa always only 2010 he skipped

Hamburg was elevated from 1000 to 500 and in bad time of year, so they have problems to get top players, but i still like it so from clay 500s Acapulco is worst for me.

Beijing-Tokyo are good events, but than from duo Basel-Valencia i would easily pick Valencia is not good tournament, it is not their problem Basel has Federer and DJokoci always so that makes them ,,prestigious,, comparing to Valencia, which is really weird indoor HC- very slow in ESP.

Than WASH and ROTT are good turnaments - average 500s nothing extra, but nothing bad so i would say worst from my perspective are Acapulco and Valencia

Acapulco is best of those Latin American tournaments but simply no top players are playing there and than when somebody like Ferrer -Almagro are there you knew who is going to win or be in F.

Valencia - just slow indoor HC in time of the year when no top player will play there and if somebody decieds to play he will go to Basel which is the same week.

Considering Acapulco has excellent crowds and not just for the finals something Beijing will never do.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: What Is Your Least Favorite ATP 500 Event?

Acapulco is a well organized event with a very passionate crowd in a nice location. It deserves a better field.

Washington and Beijing are boring.
