Are you serious or just clowning around. Mickey Carlo counts as a 500 event. As for the quality of the field argument, that's also evident. Djokovic won Toronto (
) and Miami (against Murray, Roger's Dubai win was more challenging than this). No point in arguing when I've won the argument before it has even begun.
Sorry, your both arguments here are feeble. Monte Carlo had pretty much all the best clay courters minus Fed - Nadal, Ferrer, Almagro, Nole, also Murray, Berdych, Bellucci, that's as hard as it gets on clay. The second one, Nole beats Murray = not challenging, Fed beats Murray = challenging is casebook example of tard argument, doesn't even deserve a comment.
