Fair point....but I agree that the surface should be switched.
I can see most of the players from this year's Masters Cup in next year's Masters Cup. Safin, Roddick, Hewitt, Federer and Coria will qualify for years to come. Nalbandian will be added to the mix and most probably Agassi next year. Therefore 1 place left for grabs - could go to any combination of Canas, Ferrero, Henman....Rusedski -
But yes, if the surface were switched, it would make it interesting because the results would be somewhat different.
However, I DON'T think it should be held on clay only a week after the tour ends. If the surface is clay, there has to be at least a 2 week gap to get used to the surface.
