No, form shouldn't decide who gets to play there.

A post without mentioning Federer from you, amazing.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Re: Should WTF have some kind of qualification?

Replaced by a top 16 elimination event.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

so much contradiction in that one sentence

''ferrer and monaco'', ''weak fields'', ''huge candidates for the WTF''

in all likelihood, ferrer will get double bagelled by both del potro and federer in the group stages

Well perhaps I was expecting more from a clown troll of your level. My mistake.

I think ousher for life meant they're huge candidates to qualify to WTF.

Re: Should WTF have some kind of qualification?

You could have like the top 6 automatically and 2 places decided after qualies between say the next 8, that would effectively involve the top 20 and we'd have less tankers I reckon.

But Janowicz as a wild card? Nope...he doesn't deserve it.

I also don't like the round robin format, more tanking encouraged.

I think the top 16 guys should "rock, scissors, paper" for a spot, personally.
