Congrats Pico. Even though I hoped for a Haas win.
Oh well.

Re: Hamburg F: Monaco aka Vulture in chief def Haas 7-5 6-4

Good tournament from Monaco and Haas.
Monaco had that injury in Monte Carlo - on a moment he was clearly on fire.
Now he's finally back on track.

A defensive baseliner who wins a ATP 500 on clay is not a bad thing.
He does not won Queens, Halle or Cincinatti, so I don't see the problem.

He played consistent and very well on both wings,
with very few errors and fine passing shots.

He is clearly Top 10 on clay.
For me, he is a Top 20 player on hard court.
So a ranking between 10 and 15 makes sense to me.

I like Pico but I don't think he's top 10 material - no weapons and crumbles against top players. Top 10s shouldn't be effective byes for the top guys - Monaco, Tipsarevic and Almagro (except on clay) are...

MTF doesn't like hard working blue collar tennis players.

MTF prefers headcases like Gulbis, Dimitrov, or Tomic.

Re: Hamburg F: Monaco aka Vulture in chief def Haas 7-5 6-4

Without his injury in April/Mai,
he would have at least 300-500 points more.

He did not play Monte Carlo (only the 1st round where he injured himself) and Madrid and is still Top 10.

Not to be a hater, even if he's not my favouite player, he worked hard for it so congrats Monaco for the title and welcome to the TOP10

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Tommy
As for Monaco in top 10,it's Isner's fault losing to Roddick yesterday .I don't dislike or like him but there are better players who should be in top 10.

Re: Hamburg F: Monaco aka Vulture in chief def Haas 7-5 6-4

The only player loved by all on MTF's is Tim Henman for his good looks, wining mentality and love of fine champaign. All others are mugs.

Welcome to MTF...

Haas played a great tournament. Surprised he could still do damage on clay.

But Tommy's hair looks very bad. I never thought he would lose it. And still he keeps that long rock'n'roll hairstyle. But it's already pretty embarrassing. Let it go Tommy.

True - he deserves the ranking. Has worked hard. There's just a massive gap between the top 8 (including Del Po rather than Tipsy) and the rest.

How is Dimitrov a headcase. Please. Monaco should not be in any top 10 in any sport.
